Out via the Icy Cold label on December 1st is the 15th anniversary edition of the self-titled 2007 debut album (released on CD only) by the Swedish Postpunk band The Exploding Boy. The reissue comes completely remastered and for the first time ever available on vinyl, and including an exclusive bonus-track, “Susanne”.
This special ‘Anniversary Edition’ (coming with 1 year of delay actually) also contains a full colour vinyl-sized lyrics sheet, with lots of band-pictures from 15 years ago.
About The Exploding Boy
The band was founded in 2006 by Lars Andersson and Johan Sjöblom and named after a song by The Cure. After 3 albums on the Swedish Ad Inexplorata label (Twice a Man, Karin My, Fake Moss…), in 2013 the band signed to Drakkar/SONY, who later also re-released 2 of their previous albums.
The band’s member Johan Sjöblom also released a solo-album on Manic Depression in 2016.
Here’s how they sound live. “At The Dress Circle – Live at the Sullivan Room NYC” is available on Bandcamp.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
