Biography

Straight Frank...
The Story So Far
Having formed in 2008 the Swedishrockers “Straight Frank” came with a fair bit of experience behind them having all been artists, song writers, producers and engineers since leaving school. But nothing prepared them for the whirlwind they were dropped into in 2009. With rave reviews in European rock magazines and sold out concerts in Sweden and Germany, Straight Frank’s Canadian label “Bodog Music” suddenly went bankrupt before their debut album had ever been released. It left them in a vacuum. “We didn’t walk into that deal with closed eyes” says lead singer Tobias Gustavsson “but we never saw what was coming and we were left fighting to get our album back from a label that no longer existed.”
With Bodog Music hanging in the wind, the boys consolidated their losses and carried on performing live and writing new material and their efforts were rewarded in 2010 with a new record deal with Sony Music in Munich. Bass player Henrik Edenhed picks up the thread. “It was great for us that we found another label in Sony, to help us pick up where we left off and that believes in us as we do.”
Straight Frank spent 2010 recording new material for a new album and in early winter they took the material to the test on the road in Germany playing support for Alice Cooper and Deep Purple. Is it a sign of bigger things to come?
“We definitely have a lot to offer and for us there are no limits to how far we can go, as long as people like the music, we will keep giving it to them.” Says lead singer Tobias.
Indeed with an iconic album on its way, the sky is the limit for these four guys from Sweden and a taste for rock ‘n’ roll, in their throats.
