La prima volta in formazione originale dopo 18 anni! E’ accaduto allo Sweden Rock Festival a Sölvesborg nel giugno 2016. I devastanti Hellacopters sono stati riabbracciati così: Nicke Andersson, Kenny Håkansson, Matz Robert Eriksson, Dregen, Anders Lindström. L’annuncio era stato data ad inizio dicembre 2015. La band è stata poi protagonista anche all’Azkena Rock Festival in Spagna in sostituzione dei Primal Scream.
The Hellacopters will perform with their original lineup and the band, Dregen included, will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their debut album, ‘Supershitty to the Max!’, which they will play from beginning to end at Mendizabala. The Hellacopters were formed in 1994 and they disbanded in 2008. They announced their reunion to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their first album last December in which was going to be a one-show only at the Sweden Rock Festival. Now, Azkena Rock is pleased to join this very special reunion and everyone in Vitoria will celebrate next Friday, June 17th, the two decades of their debut, an absolute reference of the genre and the album that helped them become one of the biggest names in European rock. This is the first time the original line-up of The Hellacopters has played together since 1998. The anniversary will revolve exclusively around the time of the first album, no exceptions, so if you miss or missed out on those early years, see you there! (Nicke, Kenny, Robert, Dregen & Boba).
UPDATE – L’attività prosegue. La band svedese annuncia infatti la presenza al prossimo Øya festival norvegese.
