Ex-Refused members form new hardcore band, AC4

Posted July 10th, 2009 by Eric Greenwood · 1 Comment

AC4 is a new hardcore band that features Dennis Lyxzén and David Sandström of Refused. That news right there puts my ears at full attention, as Refused’s The Shape of Punk to Come is easily one of the best punk rock records I’ve ever heard. Seriously, if you don’t own, quit reading this and go get it. Needless to say, this band has some mighty shoes to fill. I’d be hard-pressed to dabble anywhere near Refused territory if I were these guys, but Dennis Lyxzén is hardly one to shy away from a challenge. The Swedish quartet has a full-length in the can on Ny Våg Records. There are no less than 15 videos of the band playing live on YouTube linked on their MySpace page, if you want a bigger taste. From what I’ve watched so far, it’s straight-up old school hardcore. Far less refined than latter day Refused but promising nonetheless. Getting excited. [via Punknews]
