Swedish-Hungarian Band HARD Releases First Single From Forthcoming Album

"Várj úgy", the new video from the Swedish-Hungarian hard rock act HARD, can be viewed below. The clip was shot in Budapest on a boat on the Danube. The song is a very special occasion indeed, as Swedish singer Björn Lodin, as a gesture to his Hungarian bandmates and their Hungarian fans, took on the unlikely challenge of recording the track singing in Hungarian for the first time.

"Várj úgy" is a collaboration with award-winning top Hungarian lyricist Attila Horváth and also has a "Hunglish" version released, interpolating parts of an English-language version which will be featured on the forthcoming album due early 2011.
HARD was formed in 2004 by some of the finest musicians of the Hungarian hard rock scene. After two critically acclaimed and award-nominated albums in Hungary, the band decided to take it a step forward and hit international music territories with English lyrics. After several lineup changes, their first international offering, "Traveler", was released worldwide in March 2008. The band has appeared in the biggest international hard rock and heavy metal magazines, such us Metal Hammer, Burrn!!, Fireworks, Hardline, Powerplay, etc. In August 2009, the band announced that it was joining forces with acclaimed Swedish vocalist/guitarist/producer Björn Lodin (BALTIMOORE). The long-awaited first album with this new lineup, entitled "Time Is Waiting For No One", was released on BLP Music/Escape Music in Europe and on BLP Music/Nightmare Records in North America.

HARD is:

Zsolt Csillik (guitar)
Björn Lodin (vocals, guitar)
