Atlas Losing Grip is a Swedish punk rock / melodic hardcore band formed
in Lund in 2005.
The band is fronted by Rodrigo Alfaro (Satanic Surfers, Intensity) whose well-known voice feels more sincere than ever.
They have released one full length (‘Shut the World Out’) in 2008 and a MCD (‘Watching the Horizon’) in 2009, both receiving great reviews from every corner of the globe.
They have toured all of over europe numerous times and supported Bad Religion on their Scandinavian tour in the summer of 2010. The music can best be described as classic melodic punk rock with a diverse range of influences that takes the listener through shredding fast sections, catchy midtempo singalongs and heavier hardcore-ish stuff, all with political and personal lyrics, sung straight from the heart.
Previous EP “Watching the horizon” got license released by various labels all over the world, now it’s time for a new album “State of unrest”.
They started recording the album on Dec 25th and finished on February 8th 2011. Jason Livermore of “Blasting Room” - Fort Collins, CO handles the mastering of the album. He has worked with all the greatest bands in the genre, including: Rise Against, Good Riddance, Propagandhi and many many more. Producing genre-defining albums year after year – having him putting his finishing touch on our album felt like an important, easy and natural decision.
Atlas Losing Grip and we thinks that this album will be highly appreciated within the melodic punk scene. It really has strong, personal songs and lyrics which many people can relate to. The band are willing to do almost whatever it takes to spread their music and passion for it across the universe, fully prepared to tour a lot and be available in ways needed.
The record comes in a good looking digipack version for the CD & an even better looking Gatefold packaging for the Vinyl version.
