Swedish Hard Rockers STARMEN Announce Fourth Album,’Starmenized’ Due Out Sept.8th
With their sights set on the stars, the Swedish hardrock band STARMEN returns with their fourth album – ’Starmenized’. After unexpectedly debuting with two records in 2020 and following up with another album in 2021, the guys are back with a truly exciting sequel. Among the album’s cavalcade of hits, melodic hard rock takes the front seat, with original songs that are hard to resist, graphically packaged in a retro comic book style with a running theme that oozes superheroes and rock stars.
When the Swedish hard rock band STARMEN released their third album ’By the Grace of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ in 2021, people around the world began to seriously notice this band. In addition to an honorable second place in Sweden Rock Magazine’s Juryn (The Jury), words of praise poured in from the USA, South America, Australia, Japan and Europe. Inspiring words, which surely helped the band in the studio, because on ’Starmenized’, motivation is at its peak.
In the same style as their rock heroes from the 70s and 80s, the band goes all the way in terms of image with full make-up and accompanying stage clothes, where each member has their own color. Of course, you can see nods to the bands from this era in appearance and musical style, but that’s where the similarities end. STARMEN writes their own songs and are not afraid to bring the music of previous decades into the present.
“It feels great to finally be able to release this album,” announces the band’s frontman Kristian Hermanson, “We offer a real hit cavalcade with melodious hard rock, which we hope will reach even further than what we have done before.”
The album has a fitting graphic theme that revolves around superheroes and rock stars in a retro comic book style.
Out of the album’s 10 tracks, STARMEN will release at least 8 videos! The level of ambition is at its peak and there are also rumors that the band is preparing to follow up the album with live shows.
’Starmenized’ is produced by Kristian Hermanson and released via the record company Melodic Passion Records in collaboration with Sound Pollution.
