Three years after the critically acclaimed album “II”, Razorbats are back with an über-catchy tribute to life as a rocker, “Mainline Rock‘ N ‘Roll “
The road to hell is full of temptations and as prolific rockers, Razorbats never shy away from temptation. Although temperatures above 37 Celsius on Bloody Beach and perpetual sodomy by Beelzebub in a blazing inferno may not be more tempting than watching “The Masked Singer” with the family on a Saturday night, it is still something profound that drives otherwise sane people to spend large parts of their lives in a foul-smelling van from the early 80’s. It is of course the joy of giving people a break from power-hungry bosses, naggy life partners, overwhelming debt and other crap one may have in life. Because maybe it is worth living life a little before Satan gets his eternal cuddle?
The previous album was followed by a rough touring program that culminated in an existential crisis for the band after a concert with mandatory extracurricular activities. As the sun was coming up things were thrown, some words were said and Razorbats were basically finished. It was quiet in the van the next day. The question everyone asked themselves was “what the hell drives us to sacrifice so much for rock ’n’ roll and is it worth it?” In such a situation, most other bands would probably call it a day, but in the Razorbats camp this question ignited a spark again in the rock ’n’ roll engine. They were going to make the ultimate party album about life as rockers!
Mainline Rock ‘N’ Roll tells stories of big dreams, partying, temptations, break ups and social stigma. Universal themes that are part of the life you choose as a rock soldier. The album is a tribute to the rocker lifestyle and life should be a party! So join us for a ride to the dark side! It can quickly get pretty damn hot here, but it is a lot more fun than “The Masked Singer”!
Released on April 9th Razorbats are back with a bang and their third long-player on Rob Mules Records. Visit Here for full details and release bundles.
Norway’s Razorbats are one of the leading bands in The New Wave of Scandirock. The band got international attention with the release of their debut album Camp Rock in 2015 and critics from all over Europe, Australia and the US praised their unique ability to blend classic rock, powerpop and punk in exiting ways. The lead single ‘Kids of the 70s’ got a lot of airplay on rock radio across Europe and college radio in the US, in addition to national radio back home. Camp Rock was named album of the year by Glitter2Gutter in the US and featured on several best-of list for 2015. The hype continued with the album “II” in 2018 and in 2019 Razorbats released the singles “The City” and “White Trash Radio”, as the first tastings from the band’s upcoming full length album Mainline Rock ‘N’ Roll with release in 2021 through Rob Mules Records. This year the band released the singles ‘Working For The Weekend’ and ‘Little Ms. Crazy’. The latter has so far been picked up by more than 100 radio stations in Europe and the USA.
Razorbats has toured Scandinavia and the UK several times. In addition to countless headline shows, they have shared the stage with artists such as The Offspring, Rise Against, The Wildhearts and Michael Monroe at festivals and clubs home and abroad. Over several years of touring, Razorbats have evolved into a hard hitting live band, entertaining audiences with sing along rock anthems.
