The cult of The Cruel Intentions vow to bring back the golden days of rock and roll, through the glorious ways of the demigods of Guns ‘N Rose, LA Guns and Mötley Crue.
The music reek of confidence - it is fast paced, humorous and hard-hitting, delivered to you by this decades most tenacious, vigorous and sassy band.
With a light mix of optimism and pessimism as their basic recipe The Cruel Intentions graze upon subjects like dark side of happy-go-lucky lifestyles, how mistakes spurt growth, and how choosing to stand out and live on the curbs of our society’s norms is both a freedom and a burden.
The Cruel Intentions was founded in 2015, and consists of Mats Wernerson, Lizzy DeVine, Kristian Solhaug and Robin Nilsson.
All which have previously been involved in an array of different bands. Notably Lizzy De Vine lived several years in Los Angeles where he was the singer and songwriter of Vains of Jenna, a band that got their breakthrough with performances in the movies Jackass/Viva La Bam/Kat Von Dee’s LA Ink, together with touring multiple times throughout the states.
With over 2,5 million streams on Spotify and international recognition for their insanely intense live shows, The Cruel Intentions present a unique take on sleaze rock in a modern, Guns N’ Roses meets Sex Pistols meets Buckcherry style.
