|CRUCIFIED BARBARA, REVOLVER LAUNCH NEW TRACK "ELECTRIC SKY"|
New album "In the Red" out September 10 on Despotz Records
STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN - Scandinavia's leading all-lady hard rock/heavy metal outfit, Crucified Barbara, has teamed up with Revolver to launch a new song "Electric Sky" from the band's upcoming album In the Red. Stream "Electric Sky" here:http://www.revolvermag.com/?p=64568 before In the Red drops September 10 on Despotz Records.
"We started writing the song before recording the last album, The Midnight Chase," the band told Revolver. "It wasn't perfect at the time, but we felt it had a lot of potential so we decided to take the time to make it perfect.
"Writing and playing music is sometimes like a force of nature. The creativity and energy feel almost supernatural. It's like the northern lights, it feels magical - but it is actually happening. That beautiful feeling is our 'Electric Sky.'"
In the Red can be pre-ordered now through the Crucified Barbara web-store at:http://www.crucifiedbarbara-shop.com/.
The band's Despotz debut was recorded at Studio Music-A-Matic, Gothenburg with producer Chips Kiesby and engineer Henryk Lip. Artwork for album number four comes courtesy of Stockholm, Sweden artist Erik Rovanpera.
Dealing with topics like misogyny and animal rights, Crucified Barbara calls In the Red "the best thing we've ever done musically. We have always been shocked by injustice and oppression, and this time, our opinions have taken an even bigger place in the songwriting."
Earlier this year, Crucified Barbara launched a music video for the track "To Kill a Man" on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/YoUBd6aTJMg, stating "One fifth of all the world's women have been raped or assaulted in their lifetime. The dark statistics became the basis for the song 'To Kill a Man' and our most important message of the video. The production company 11Frames has captured our vision perfectly, and we are proud that we take the opportunity lifting heavy topics such as violence and sexism with a really heavy hard rock video."
"To Kill a Man" can be purchased on iTunes at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/to-kill-a-man-single/id860702559 and streamed on Spotify at:http://open.spotify.com/track/2ajQRO5ArXqfBSFCKFufvG.

Crucified Barbara formed in 1998 in Stockholm, Sweden with punk as a first inspiration, which can still be found as a presence today. However, throughout the years the quartet has evolved towards a harder, heavier and more contrast-filled rock sound, mixing elements of thrash, sleaze and hard rock.
Over the course of its 15-plus year existence, Crucified Barbara has toured alongside and supported such acclaimed acts as In Flames, Sepultura, Motorhead, Backyard Babies, Doro and more, while touring extensively across Europe. The band has also visited Russia, Australia and both South and North America.
"The signing of Crucified Barbara fits perfectly in line with our strategy and goal to be a choice for Sweden's biggest rock bands, where they can work closely with a local Stockholm-based music company on a global basis with an international PR and distribution network," said Ömer Akay, Despotz Records co-founder and partner. "We are incredibly proud that these wonderfully gifted musicians chose to sign with Despotz."
Crucified Barbara will head out for a lengthy European tour in support of In the Red this fall. The band will also play several festival gigs this summer.
Stay tuned for more information on Crucified Barbara and In the Red, out this September on Despotz.
