    They've just been added to Download, with others.

    They were the ONE reason I considered going to Soni. This is fucking brilliant news, couple of days after I bought my ticket too.

    Did hear rumours they were going to play Hevy Fest but I guess they got offered a lot more can to do Download.

    Just hoping they'll do some non-festival dates in that case. Not sure I'd bother going to Download just for them. Hevy on the other hand... Hope that still happens, though there seems to be a lot of festival exclusivity shenanigans going on this year, which sucks.

    Refused were/are a semi-decent hardcore band but to be honest I don't fully get the hype behind their reunion.

    Doesn't sit well with me either that (so far) they've just been playing the big money festivals where it costs £100 to see them rather than their own shows. Not really in keeping with their supposed ethics.

    Two UK dates announced, Forum at Kentish Town on the 12th of August and one in Manchester.

    Can't go. :(

    Yeah, i've been thinking this too. Download's a far cry from their infamous gig in Dundalk for sure! I guess there's no harm in exposing themselves to a bigger crowd though.

    No longer just a reunion.

    http://www.theprp.com/2015/04/27/news/refused-announce-new-album-freedom-debut-stream-of-elektra/



    Refused have announced a June 30th on Epitaph for their long-rumored new album “Freedom“. Even better, the group have premiered a new song from it by the name of “Elektra“, which you can hear below via Pitchfork. Pre-orders for the album—their first since 1998—can be found at refusedstore.com. A limited edition version of the album is also being offered at that location.

    Writing for the new album began within the first four months of their 2012 reunion tour. Frontman Dennis Lyxzén said of the return:

    “It’s not a reunion anymore. This is one of the most radical things we’ve ever done, both musically and lyrically.”

    Drummer David Sandström added:

    “Nobody wanted us to fuck with the image of the band who makes a great album and splits up. Nobody wanted us to dilute it. That actually provoked us.”

    Production for “Freedom” was handled by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Arcade Fire). Two tracks, “Elektra” &”366“, were co-writen with Shellback, who has helped Taylor Swift and Pink in a songwriting capacity in the past.

    Song is underwhelming. Sounds like Refused; in the same way a lot of these reunion albums sound like the bands they used to be, yet are still missing something.

    Maybe it's a grower.

    Was going to say exactly that. Soundgarden, Faith No More, Black Sabbath. Loads more I can't think of off the top of my head. It's grand that they're putting out new stuff, but it just doesn't live up to what came before.

    The only two albums I can genuinely think of that are as good as what came in the 90s are Cynic's "Traced In Air" (which came out in 2008 15, years after their first - and last album) and Sleater-Kinney's "No Cities To Love" which came out this year after a break of 9 years and is legitimately one of their best records.

    Carcass and At the Gates had pretty ok reunion albums. I mean, they were both really great albums, but they were missing something.

    Couldn't get into the new At The Gates at all, quite enjoyed the new Carcass (to the point where I'd put it ahead of Reek, Symphonies - there's about 7 grindcore albums ever released I really enjoy, and these two ain't any of them - and Swansong).

    Come to think of it, the last Afghan Whigs album was great, as was Atheist's most recent (although it's probably still their weakest).

    The older I get, the more I prefer the (International) Noise Conspiracy to Refused.

    The new song is... ok.
