ENTOMBED Drummer NICKE ANDERSSON's IMPERIAL STATE ELECTRIC Releases 'All Through The Night' Video

"All Through The Night", the new video from IMPERIAL STATE ELECTRIC, the Swedish rock band led by THE HELLACOPTERS architect and ENTOMBED drummer Nicke Andersson, can be seen below. The song is the title track of IMPERIAL STATE ELECTRIC's fifth album, "All Through The Night", which was released on September 23 via Psychout Records. The follow-up to last year's "Honk Machine" was recorded in Andersson's studio The Honk Palace and was mixed by Frans Hagglund (SAMLING, LAST DAYS OF APRIL, THE HIVES).

A single featuring the new track "Read Me Wrong" was released as a 12-inch vinyl on May 13. It included two exclusive tracks, "I Know You Well" and "Just A Little Misunderstanding" (a THE CONTOURS cover).

The limited time period between "Honk Machine" and "All Through The Night" poses the question, and rightly so: how has the band found time and creativity to record yet another album? Nicke's answer is clear: "We play rock 'n' roll music. If it takes four years to make a rock 'n' roll record, then you have most likely over analyzed an art form that is more about gut instinct. It should feel and this record feels good."

According to a press release, IMPERIAL STATE ELECTRIC proves on "All Through The Night" "that they have raised their game another notch. Sure, they subscribe to the school of 'less-is-more' greats like CHEAP TRICK, THE CLASH, Tom Petty and the RAMONES, but somehow they manage to make this fresh and vital as opposed to retro and overdone. On 'All Through The Night', the band is everything and a little more than what you can ask of a rock album, whether the year is 1967, 1978 or 2016."

In a recent interview with RockYourLife.gr, Nicke stated about the songwriting process for "All Through The Night": "I write songs all the time. Not just for a specific album. The songs on 'All Through The Night' are the ones we decided would make a pretty decent album. Some songs are older and some were written a day before recording them."

He added: "I always write songs the same way: I sit down with a guitar and usually something comes out of it. I never try to write a certain type of song. I can't force it in any direction. You can, however, produce the song in certain ways. That's what we did with the title track, for instance, when we added strings and stuff. I like a lot different types of music and all of that gets filtered through my head, so to speak."
