Bakrus upcoming album Lover Ingenting is available for preorder today!
Bakrus is true Norwegian punk with a modern take. With strong references to national heroes like Dumdum boys and Raga Rockers, bur also classic punk bands like Germs, Minutemen and Bad Brains.
Since the band’s debut single in 2016, Bakrus have made a name for themselves in the Norwegian punk-rock underground. In their debut album review, Disharmoni wrote that it was “[…] a charismatic debut album with potential, will and skill”. Bakrus were quickly known as an energic live act, and came second on the Norwegian live contest for up and coming bands, TM:Live, in 2018. On the release gig for “PER”, the band had fired up the audience so much that the first vinyl pressing sold out before the gig was at its end. Sola Johnsen from the legendary Norwegian band DumDum Boys is also a fan, having said that “They are a lot tighter than we were at that age. The guys prove that the Punk is alive and well.”
With Lover Ingeting, Bakrus have taken the step from their home-studio in the mountains to a professional studio for their next full-length. With Per Borten (Spidergawd) as producer in his Sørgården Studio, and many late hours of hard work from the band, the coming album shows the dedication and talent that lives in Bakrus. With a crazy year behind us, giving much to reflect and write about, it’s also an album that talk about despair, loneliness and lack of self-worth. Its straight from the heart, straight from the gutter and full of pumped-up punk rock!
