HARDCORE SUPERSTAR Cancel All Activities, Take A Break

Sweden's HARDCORE SUPERSTAR have decided to take a break and "cancel all events for an unknown time," according to a posting on their web site. "The band have been on the road for the last four years and due to this some bandmembers have got some serious health problems."

In an interview with the Swedish daily newspaper Expressen published on Friday (April 30), HARDCORE SUPERSTAR drummer Magnus "Adde" Andréasson downplayed the rumors of rampant drug abuse that have plagued the group in the recent months.

"Of course, it's easy to get hooked on booze and smoking" while on the road, he said. "You have to remember that we meet a lot of party people on tour. But we don't wanna we remembered for drug abuse. That's simply not true. Sure, we partied a lot — maybe too much. It's not good when you wake up regretting what you did the day before."

As a result relations between the members have become strained. "Especially me and [guitarist] Silver Silver have been at each other's throats," Magnus admitted. "We can't meet in the studio without starting to fight. It's a soap opera."

This fall HARDCORE SUPERSTAR will meet and discuss the future.

"We still have a lot to give," said Magnus. "We all have big egos – it's just shame that it gets in the way of the artistry."

HARDCORE SUPERSTAR released "No Regrets", the follow-up to 2001's acclaimed "Thank You (For Letting Us Be Ourselves)", last August through Music For Nations Records. Like its predecessor, the album was produced by Roberto Laghi. The first single off the album, "Honey Tongue", was released last June.
