Post-punk band MISSILES launch second single from debut album “Weaponize Tomorrow” on Svart Records

MISSILES launch second single from debut album “Weaponize Tomorrow” on Svart Records

Malmö’s MISSILES have released a new single, “Living In A Nuclear Town”, from their upcoming album “Weaponize Tomorrow” (10th May 2024). You can listen it HERE:

MISSILES explains the backgrounds of the new single, out today on Svart Records.

Living in a Nuclear Town was one of the last – if not the last – song to be finished before we started the recording process. It’s also one of the tracks that was finished first and saw few changes whilst others got a good beating. Lyrically, the song deals with the rough realities, both the ones reported and seen as well as the ongoing hidden waiting to happen”.

The members of MISSILES are no new kids on the block. Coming from punk, rock, and metal, as well as surf and rather diverse backgrounds, they all answered to the call of their good friend Gabriel Forslund – sincerely interested in doing something new and exciting together. The band’s trajectory began with a 7″ single released by the Swedish label Fetish in 2016. Initially viewed as a project, MISSILES have organically evolved into a fully dedicated band with a laser-guided focus, causing shock waves in the underground with their jet-fuel genre-clash. Combining abandoned sounds with new inventions on “Weaponize Tomorrow”, MISSILES promises to both pat you on the head and stab you in the back, delivering a unique blend of post-punk with a touch of goth rock.

MISSILES claim their debut is a one-of-a-kind album, truly a loved bastard. ”Weaponize Tomorrow” will appeal to those who enjoyed the certain “je ne sais quoi” found in the New Wave movement, a line of thought that is liberating to hear today when artists go to the bank with a genre description. MISSILES couldn’t be bothered; it’s rock, it’s pop, it’s punk, it’s je ne sais quoi. Hard to pin down, but undeniable to freak out to, “Weaponize Tomorrow” is a high yield blast wave that will leave MISSILES hot on the tongues of those looking for a sudden and dramatic, incendiary kick. A gut smashing future shock that will resonate across diverse musical landscapes, “Weaponize Tomorrow” will be the perfect atomic cocktail for fans of Wipers, Dead Moon, The Birthday Party, The Gun Club and even modern iconoclasts Molchat Doma and Beastmilk.

The band’s lineup consists of:

Gabriel Forslund (vocals and guitar)

Jens Rasmussen (drums)

Tobias Augustsson (synthesizers)

Sebastian Gadd (guitar)

Linus Larsson (bass)
