Bass player Emil Wigelius from Swedish glam metallers BILLION DOLLAR BABIES has re-enacted a Swedish folk tale with the bands’ tour manager and booking agent Tord Fjällborg. Check out the picture photographed by Olof Wikström at Skrikhult Productions:
“The story is about an old Swedish folk tale about a naked guy “Näcken,” playing the violin in streams, luring people to him and then he drowned them… We got dared to do this picture, as he usually is portrayed when we go to this farm, so we grabbed the instruments we found and went for it haha!”
BILLION DOLLAR BABIES are working hard on new material for the upcoming album which will be recorded later on this year. The band toured Germany and Switzerland earlier this year and in April and they are planning some club shows in Sweden and also some shows in Germany again before the festival season.
