Last Days Of April

BandPop

Last Days of April has been a reliable rock in the stormy waters of pop culture for over a decade, and the solid fan base around the world tells of the same kind of commitment.

Biography

For over a decade main LDOA engine and songwriter Karl Larsson has steered the band from frustrated emotional hardcore to well-produced pop songs, without ever giving in to current fads and trends. Last Days of April has been a reliable rock in the stormy waters of pop culture, and the solid fan base around the world tells of the same kind of commitment.

Might As Well Live fuses Larsson’s long-evolved melodic craftsmanship and emotionally charged lyrics on the ups and downs in life with thick rock guitars and a production with the word airplay written all over it, signed master-mind Pelle Gunnerfeldt (Grammy Award winning producer whose previous work includes The Hives and Sahara Hotnights).

With Larsson firmly in charge of the recording process, other musicians on the album include Mathias Oldén from LDOA label mates Logh as well as hard-hitting drummer Fredrik Granberg from Swedish punk rock outfit Randy – an obvious step towards a more classic rock band setting. Their contributions, along with Larsson’s increased amplifier volume make Might As Well Live their most straight forward, rock-based album in many years, although conceptually related both to 2000’s classic Angel Youth (recently voted as one of ten essentials albums for heartbreak moments by the highly influential Alternative Press) and their latest, much-appreciated album If You Lose It from 2004.

During the past few years Last Days of April has spent a lot of time on the road, with up to a hundred live shows a year, including tours of Europe, Australia and Japan. Most of the big festivals have been covered, such as Hultsfred, Rock Am Ring/Rock Im Park, Livid and Southside/Hurricane, and as supporting act LDOA have been on the road with major rock acts like Sportfreunde Stiller (Germany), Superjesus (Australia) and Fightstar (UK).

The album title Might As Well Live is a statement, a decision that some things need to carry on, no matter what. Last Days of April is one of those things.
