AC4, the Swedish hardcore punk band fronted by Dennis Lyxzén, best known as the singer of REFUSED and THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY, will release its second album, "Burn The World", on March 22 via Ny Våg Records. Lyxzén is backed in the group by guitarist Karl Backman, bassist Christoffer Röstlund Jonsson and drummer Jens Nordén, all Umeå hardcore mainstays from bands like STEP FORWARD, D.S.-13, REGULATIONS and THE VECTORS.
According to a press release, "Burn The World" features 16 songs that can be described as "classic early '80s hardcore punk like DEAD KENNEDYS, BAD BRAINS and G.B.H. mixed with a bit of MOTÖRHEAD. In other words: the music the band members grew up with."
AC4 originally started in 2008, released its debut album, "AC4", in 2009 and toured all over Europe and Australia the following years. During REFUSED's reunion tour of 2012, AC4 took a break from live gigs and focused on the recording of "Burn The World".
The new CD release will be followed by AC4's first tours since 2011, including performances at Groezrock in Belgium and the two Monster Bash festivals in Germany in April.
