Biography

Norwegian hardcore band Desperado was born almost 3 years ago. 40000 km on the road, 3 releases and 103 gigs later, Desperado returns to the studio to record their fourth record, and second fullenght album. There is time for rest this year, as the record hits the public in September, followed by new rounds of touring in Norway and Europe.

They don’t burn pianos nor do they dance on the corpses ashes, but both Blood Brothers and At The Drive-In have been mentioned, along with JR Ewing, Fugazi, The Hives, Trail of Dead and a lot of the hardcore bands that grew out of California for two decades ago. There are some records that stand out as tour favourites after 40000 km spent in the van, but it is the diversity of the band members’ records collection and influences that shape the sound of Desperado. On record it sounds intense, focused, aggressive and controlled chaotic. Live it sounds just like that, just louder and more, more, more.

The three releases on Norwegian indie label Dead Letter Records owned by vocalist Thomas, have received great critics in Norwegian and European press.The fullenght debut “Evacuation” sold almost 1500 copies, not a big figure, but this was without any organized distribution in major stores or outside Norway, and more than several profiled Norwegian popartists sell.
Last years single “All Hat, No Cattle” received airplay on national radio and television, and appearance on 4 different compilations. 103 gigs during the two last years have raised the chins of thousands of shoegazers. Ze Norwegian hardcore shock, as described by various Germans. It surely is a live show you cannot ignore.
