Swedish garage rock band ÅSKVÄDER release the electrifying single “Misfortune” on The Sign Records. The four-piece also announce a tour to take place in Spain late May/early June, spreading the word about their new high-octane release as well as their latest studio album “Fenix” (2022) across the Iberian peninsula. Dates below.
Åskväder on “Misfortune”:
Sometimes things go south right? This song describes a situation where you are left dirt poor eating noodles as your only food source just to survive and eventually you’ll get osteoporosis due to lack of vitamin-C. The only way to stand the misery that the world has put you in is to play rock n roll, and that loud. We hereby present Misfortune which is our punk-ish take on living in the shabby outskirts and all broken in a wealthy western society. The lyrics, melodies and riffs came to life without effort and we tried to keep that feeling whilst recording it. To put the song out was an easy decision – we loved it from the first beat of Tims drum fill to the last catchy chorus and we hope that you will too!

Electrifying Swedish rockers Åskväder makes thunder and lightning through music. Well balanced seasoning to the sound of the 90s Scandinavian rock scene mixed up with smoking hot riffs drenched in bluesy licks and catchy refrains. Adding thundering drum and bass groove with a topping consisting of elaborate vocal harmonies Åskväder is Swedish and can be translated into ‘Thunderstorm’. That says it all. No fuss, just straight Rock n Roll.
While capturing some of the influences from the legends of our time such as The Hellacopters and Turbonegro Åskväder manages to stay in their own lane, creating their own style of rock for a new decade.
Hailing from the west coast of Sweden, Åskväder released their debut EP ”Quick Fixes” in 2018. In 2020 the band joined forces with The Sign Records for the release of their debut, self-titled studio album. In 2022 Åskväder returned with their second full-length effort, ”Fenix”. The new album takes the Åskväder sound heard on the debut album to a new level. Mixed by Kalle Lilja & Per Stålberg (Welfare Sounds), who truly put an intense vibe to the album.
Åskväder was formed in 2018 and consists today of Lucas Monryd with his lightning speed bass grooves, Tim Ferm on drumrolls, Albin Sörensson on lead vocals and Martin Gut bending guitar strings and singing harmonies. Look out for Åskväder who released their second album through The Sign Records in March 2022.
