New Refused album “Freedom” and tour this summer

If you missed Swedish hardcore punk band Refused on their reunion tour in 2012 (which was amazing!) and have been craving some new music from the band, I have good news for you! Refused are very much alive and releasing their first new album since 1998’s The Shape of Punk to Come, called Freedom on June 30th. The first song from the new album is called “Elektra” and it is incredible! With a lot of screaming of “there’s no escape”, it sounds very much like a Refused song, which is a good thing. Give it a listen below.

Freedom tracklist:

01 – Elektra
02 – Old Friends / New War
03 – Dawkins Christ
04 – Françafrique
05 – Thought Is Blood
06 – War on the Palaces
07 – Destroy the Man
08 – 366
09 – Servants of Death
10 – Useless Europeans

The band is also getting ready to start a world tour, with most dates already sold out. I’m still bummed about the cluster-f that was trying to (unsucessfully) get a ticket for The Sinclair show on 6/01.
