Pil & Bue are a forceful duo from the very depths of northern Norway, who despite their minimal format sounds like a full-blown band. The band will release their new album "The World Is a Rabbit Hole" on Sep 3, and the album is finally available for pre-orders!
Pre-order CD & LP HERE.
Consisting of Gøran Johansen on drums and percussion, and one of Norway’s most unique and powerful voices, Petter Carlsen, on vocals and baritone guitar, Pil & Bue deliver an explosion of raw, hard, and melodic rock with a twist of darkness.
With subtle, but pronounced references to artists like Placebo, Deftones, Sigur Ros, Anathema and Mars Volta, Pil & Bue delivers “Hard, gloomy & joyful music...” (Metal Hammer NO) based on topics like memories, childhood aspirations, use of imagination, video games, and the intriguing online rabbit holes.
The band´s raw and melodic music quickly struck a note with Hollywood director Tommy Wirkola who included the Pil & Bue single “You Win Again” in his now cult-status movie “Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival January 2014.
Also, their single “Fire” from second album “Forget the Past, Let’s Worry About The Future” is featured on the end credits of Hollywood/Netflix blockbuster “What Happened To Monday” (2017).
In 2021, the duo is back after a three-year hiatus, with big changes in the lineup.
Singer and guitarist Petter Carlsen is joined by drummer Gøran Johansen following the departure of former drummer Aleksander Kostopoulos.
Pil & Bue’s forthcoming album titled «The World Is A Rabbit Hole», wil be released on Sep 3 via Indie Recordings.
