Satan Takes A Holiday releases their new album ‘Satanism‘ 28th of April – Most upfront and arresting album to date!
Satan Takes A Holiday have enjoyed recognition from radio stations such as BBC 6 Music with godfather of Punk Iggy Pop and consistent playlisting from Sweden’s P3, earned praise from press outlets such as Classic Rock/Louder Sound, Ghost Cult Magazine, Rock Hard etc. and have played alongside legends such as the likes of Kiss, the Sonics, Mustasch, Juliette Lewis, Backyard Babies and Imperial State Electric all while holding their own as one of Sweden’s best live bands.
Amping up to the April release of their electrified new album “Satanism”, Satan Takes A Holiday have released the crescendo-building new single, “The Sound I Like”. Following their latest single, the technicolour “All Nighter”, the Swedish rock stalwarts lean into their 60s influence while keeping the energy up in between monster choruses.
Fred Burman describes the new single: “The Sound I Like is an anthem for introverts. Borderline violently, groovy and shout-your-lungs-out-catchy in its chorus about the urge for silence and private space. As contradictory, yet on point as anything Satan Takes A Holiday.”
Satan Takes A Holiday will release their upcoming album “Satanism” in Spring 2023 on Swedish label Despotz. The Swedish stalwarts headed into the revered Studio Ingrid with Johan Gustafson (The Hives, Randy) and long-time collaborator Alexander Idfalk to reignite the flames behind their mix of rock’n’roll and 60’s garage with their love for dark contemporary pop.
“All Nighter” and “Feel My Love” will appear on “Satanism” – the follow-up to 2019’s “A New Sensation” album and 2017’s “Aliens” album, both of which saw them pick up TV soundtracking credits with the singles “Set Me On Fire” (as recognised on Netflix’s Lucifer) and “The Beat” (on Fox’s Gotham). These two previous releases saw Spotify support in the form of additions to All New Rock, New Noise, Rock Rotation, The Rock List, Most Wanted Rock and New Music Friday.
A spectacular addition to Satan Takes A Holiday’s impressive back catalog, “Satanism” is the band’s most upfront and arresting album to date, dealing with topics of grief, sleepless nights, parenting, violent confrontations and final showdowns while inviting you to dance, riot and reflect. It is quite simply, Satan Takes a Holiday distilled into their purest form, making for one hell of a soundtrack. The new album sees the likes of artists Emmon, (Patrik) Von Arfve, Andreas Hourdakis and David Park jump on board and join Satan Takes A Holiday on this crazy new trip.

As the world went into hibernation, sprawling Swedish rock outfit Satan Takes A Holiday had to find opportunity in isolation – to open every window while doors were slamming shut. The band hunkered down and meditated, reflected on where they had been, where they were and where to go next. The lemons were turned into lemonade, spiked with Jack and sweat. Aesthetically, conceptually, tonally; where there previously had been artistic boundaries, suddenly none remained. Songs, sounds and grooves that had seemed off limits and intimidating were now temptingly calling to be explored. Intoxicated, frustrated and ready to dance, the stage was set for the bands most playful yet sincere, thoughtful yet utterly audacious album to date.
Satan Takes A Holiday grabs you by the neck and doesn’t let go until you shake your butt to the point of beverage spill. With their mix of rock’n’roll, 60’s garage and 70’s groove as well as a clear love for the darker sides of modern pop Satan Takes A Holiday will make you move, and then move some more. In addition to the TV credits, Satan Takes A Holiday have enjoyed recognition from radio stations such as BBC 6 Music with godfather of Punk Iggy Pop and consistent playlisting from Sweden’s P3, earned praise from press outlets such as Classic Rock/Louder Sound, Ghost Cult Magazine, Rock Hard etc. and have played alongside legends such as the likes of Kiss, the Sonics, Mustasch, Juliette Lewis, Backyard Babies and Imperial State Electric all while holding their own.
