MOLLY'S GUSHER (SWEDEN)
Alabama Records is proud to announce the signing of the Swedish, soon-to-be-rockstars, MOLLY’S GUSHER for the release of their new MCD Pick your poison and form a tragedy.
”Makin' it” is somewhat of a past tense in the rock world nowadays. When file sharing has got the record industry shaking in its boots, and chewing-gum-marketability and safe bets are the only thing the industry is ready to invest in, doing it your own thing is the last and only option. If you want to make a living of rock music that is. That's just what Molly's Gusher did. Their own record – the debut album simply called Molly’s Gusher. After paying their dues through demos, small gigs, dirty rehearsal rooms and member changes, the band always persevered.
They managed to be the first Swedish band ever to play at the acclaimed Woodstock Stop festival, in front of 400 000 people. They got rotation of their “Queen of my heart” – video on both MTV2 and MTV Nordic and they got voted as the best band in their home town of Örebro in 2003. All this, and raving reviews, and well visited gigs.
This kind of acclaim tends to get frustrating without the “real” success. It's kind of like feeding an albatross chick in a canary cage. So they did what any reasonable band would do at this point, and took matter into their own hands. November 2005 saw the dawning of a fully accomplished Molly's Gusher. With their self titled album they had the means for world domination, and not to say the drive and the energy. Their warm, lucid melodies, in combination with their down tuned, pounding rhythms penetrates the very core of the listeners emotional centre. Just to stomp all over it.
Now it is follow-up time. Placing Mattias Färm (of Millencolin fame) behind the knobs in the studio and the band instantly found a crisp and awesome sound. Resulting in this magnificent four track EP called "Pick your poison and form a tragedy".
This release is seriously taking Molly's Gusher to the next level and that by means is one big step closer to their big breakthrough.
“Wow, this band is a diamond in the rough! A hidden treasure and exactly the kind of artist every record company strive to find. We are nothing but truly honoured and excited to start this cooperation together with Molly’s Gusher” says Andreas Nyström of Alabama Records.
