Since their debut album, In Distortion We Trust, back in 2005, Crucified Barbara have earned their reputation as one hell of a live band through constant hard work; from the biggest festival stages to the dirtiest rock clubs, both on their own and as support to the likes of In Flames, Sepultura, Motörhead and Backyard Babies. The band has toured all over Europe several times, couple of laps in Brazil, played in Australia and an acclaimed five-week U.S. tour.
Crucified Barbara have built their reputation playing hard-hitting and uncompromising rock’n’roll. Their music is heavy, in your face rock, spiced with delicious melodies.
In September this Stockholm based quartet release their fourth full-length album, In the Red, the band’s most significant and heaviest album so far. Just like they did for previous album The Midnight Chase, the band has recorded in the legendary Music-A-Matic studio in Gothenburg with Henryk Lipp as sound engineer and producer Chips Kiesby.
“We’ve been jamming ourselves bloody”, the band state, “and let our emotions flow prior to recording. We have always been shocked by injustice and oppression and this time, our opinions have taken an even bigger place in the song writing“.
They add, “This album is the best thing we’ve ever done musically and it feels damn good to take a clear stand against subjects like misogyny and animal rights, topics we are passionate about, through our music“.
As ever Crucified Barbara will be touring extensively in support of In The Red, with a summer filled with festival appearances before they start their European headline tour in September.
