Swedish hard rockers DEGREED will release their third album, “Dead But Not Forgotten” on June 19 via Sun Hill Production. It’s heavier, softer, darker, brighter and everything in between! This is something truly special. So…fasten your seat belts cause Heaven & Hell are about to collide!
Robin stated: “We’ve been writing songs for this album on and off since the release of “We Don’t Belong” in 2013. I think we had 16-17 songs that we chose from, and recorded14. The funny thing is that we ended up putting all 14 songs on the album because they’re all so freakin’ good! This album is different from the previous two because we produced it ourselves this time, and Mats engineered, mixed and mastered it. Someone once said that we don’t sound like any other band. He described our sound as the “degreed sound“, and if there’s such a sound, this is it! This is degreed all the way…”

DEGREED was founded in 2005 and blend vocal extravaganza of Swedish Idol finalist Robin Ericsson with keyboard/guitar synchronization wizardry into melodic rock heaven. They have released two albums – Life, Love, Loss in 2010 and We Don’t Belong in 2013 – both critically acclaimed worldwide by media.
In 2014 the band was opening for Dan Reed Network on their Sweden tour, played Väsby Rock Festival and were invited as Special Guests to Machinae Supremacy’s European tour in Poland, Czech Republic and Germany. And 2015 started off with the return to UK for a tour in March.
