WANTED: Scumbag Millionaire. Today, the Swedish action punks release a new video for ‘Desperado’, the third single from ‘Poor and Infamous’ which will be out this Friday 25/09.
“In this video we traveled back in time. To a time when Hisingen was a calm place except for three gringos raising hell. Trying to avoid the local sheriff and the bounty hunters.”
– Max L (guitar)
High energy action punk, straight out of the gutters of Gothenburg, Sweden! After touring all over Europe in their stinky black and gold Chevy van, playing all the punk rock venues/festivals and drinking all the beers (one entire tray at the time, it’s easy once you know the trick!), Swedish action punks Scumbag Millionaire headed to Sunlight Studio with producer Tomas Skogsberg to record their second album: Poor and Infamous.
Scumbag Millionaire is an extension of the classic Scandirock-scene which had its prime in the late ‘90s with bands like The Hellacopters and Turbonegro. With people craving new Scandirock acts, Scumbag Millionaire are more than happy to pick up where it left off, proudly flying the Scandirock flag in 2020.
September 25th 2020 will see the release of Scumbag Millionaire’s second album: Poor And Infamous. The follow-up to debut album Speed (2018) was recorded at the legendary Sunlight Studio in Stockholm, produced by Tomas Skogsberg (Backyard Babies, The Hellacopters, Peter Pan Speedrock) and mastered by Frida Claeson Johansson at Svenska Grammofonstudion, with guest vocals by Jennifer Israelsson (Hot Breath) and Elin Larsson (Blues Pills).
“Recording with different producers and engineers on different projects has always really helped us develop. Tomas has produced some of our all-time favourite albums and working with him is something we’ve been talking about for a long time. It was an amazing experience working with him and listening to all his stories from the past.” – Adde
All singles from the new album will also be released on 7” single: In a little under six years, the band has released between 17 and 20 singles (they might have lost count), including split releases with bands like Electric Frankenstein and an Iggy & the Stooges tribute split 7”. To end their Speed album cycle with a bang, they released a 12” maxi single. All these releases have incredible artwork, come in different vinyl colours, and contain B-sides that are not available anywhere else.
“We simply love 7” singles. The format is amazing, with just one song on each side. And also the size of it. It’s an item you always can afford at the merch table. What’s not to like?” – Adde
