CRUCIFIED BARBARA SIGN WITH NUCLEAR BLAST

CRUCIFIED BARBARA SIGN WITH NUCLEAR BLAST - 2012-03-20 00:00

2012-03-20 00:00 - CRUCIFIED BARBARA, Sweden's hardest rocking quartet, have signed a record deal with Nuclear Blast for North America (U.S., Canada, and México) plus New Zealand & Australia.

“We're really proud of our new album and so incredibly happy that Nuclear Blast will release it!” states the band. “They've always worked with the coolest bands and now all of a sudden, we're one of them. This is the beginning of a long, hard rockin' friendship!”

Formed in Stockholm in 1998 by bassist Ida Evileye and guitarist Klara Force, CRUCIFIED BARBARA play a fiery brand of rock 'n' roll tinged with metal and lashings of punk, pop, thrash, and whatever else dares to cross their path. Ida Evileye dominates her trusty Sandberg bass, Klara Force rocks steady on her ’76 Gibson Explorer, Mia Coldheart belts out her unapologetic vocals while riffing all over her Gibson Gothic Flying V, and Nicki Wicked pounds on her hot pink sparkle Yamaha Maple drum kit until you’re splayed across the floor with a bull’s-eye knock-out punch that’ll make you spit your teeth out. Now you know what happens when Motörhead mates with The Runaways.

No strangers to hard work or success, CRUCIFIED BARBARA’s debut single from their 2005 debut In Distortion We Trust climbed to #8 on the Swedish pop charts. They played Australia, toured across Europe opening for Motörhead, Sepultura, In Flames, and Doro, and earned a prestigious slot alongside Black Sabbath, Velvet Revolver, and System Of A Down at the U.K. Download Festival. With all that touring, it would be four years before the band got around to recording their second album, 2009’s ‘Til Death Do Us Party. Next thing you know, there they were on national television performing in Eurovision’s 2010 Song Contest and made it to the semi-finals. Go figure.

So how did they get their name? The band members attended Denmark’s legendary Roskilde Festival and came across something very unexpected in a nearby forest: a blow-up doll (generically called “Barbara” throughout Sweden) attached to a crucifix. And no, they didn’t identify with the victim, they claimed the power of the aggressor right on the spot and have never looked back.

CRUCIFIED BARBARA’s third studio release, The Midnight Chase, will be released in North America this summer. The album was recorded at the legendary Music-A-Matic Vintage Recording Studio in Gothenberg with sound engineer Henryk Lipp and producer Chips Kiesby.
