Refused

Sweden

Scandinavian noisemakers REFUSED disbanded in 1998 with a farewell show for a mere 50 punters. How things have changed. The re-release of legendary album The Shape of Punk to Come in 2010 made them Pitchfork darlings garnering a 9.4 score and the best reissue tag. An invitation to play Coachella 2012 turned into an 82 show reunion tour and new music finally showed up in the form of Freedom. Rolling Stone calling the release “the exhilarating sound of a band that still lives by its own rules.”
