CRAZY SWEDES Partner with Prog Report for Early Album Stream – LISTEN HERE

‘Crazy Swedes’ Deluxe Edition out on Friday!

Progressive jam rockers CRAZY SWEDES have partnered with Prog Report for an early stream of the deluxe edition of their self-titled debut. The record drops this Friday (September 23), but fans can check it out here right now!

Speaking about the deluxe album, Swedes guitarist Will Severin says:

“A lot of the other cuts on the Deluxe Edition are tips of the hat to our musical influences. All the guys in the band (Rob on keys, George on drums, and Eric on bass) are killer players and bring a lot musically to the table. It’s truly an honor to play alongside these guys. For me, it was a great change of pace to get back to just playing guitar again after a few years of lead vocal duties for Infinite Spectrum. With CRAZY SWEDES we all challenge each other, and it’s the perfect band to stretch out and just play. 

Severin adds, “We worked with Grammy-winning engineer Chris Theis on this one and we’re really happy with how it came out. Chris and I produced the release to have the feel of the classic fusion recordings that we were inspired by. There’s a lot of variety on the new release, catchy hooks, and a very healthy dose of shredding!”

In addition to the 10 tracks found on the standard version, which was released last year, ‘Crazy Swedes’ (deluxe edition) includes live covers of Pink Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” and “Stratus” by Billy Cobham, along with an original acoustic track, “Indigo Chrome”.

An electrifying rock fusion group, CRAZY SWEDES original compositions feature jaw-dropping improvisation combined with an amalgam of jazz, funk, and rock set against a solid groove. CRAZY SWEDES is a mainly instrumental group that falls somewhere between the worlds of the jazz fusion era of the 70s/80s and the jam band scene of today. Expect the unexpected, from full-on shredding to eclectic vocal covers. Where else might you hear Weather Report and Led Zeppelin? CRAZY SWEDES members have shared the stage with numerous acts including Brand X, ELP’s Carl Palmer, Joshua Redwood, Fates Warning, Kenwood Dennard, Clay People, Haken, and American Idol’s Madison VanDenburg. Their new release was co-produced by Grammy Winning engineer Chris Theis and CRAZY SWEDES Will Severin and is currently available at most major music outlets. CRAZY SWEDES line-up features: guitarist Will Severin, keyboardist Rob Lindquist, bassist Eric Schwanke, and drummer George Snyder.


“To say nothing short of how much this record blew me away would be remiss. From the soaring leads of Will Severin on guitar, and Rob Lindquist on keyboards, to the never-failing-to-be solid rhythm section of Eric Schwanke on bass, and George Snyder on drums, this album was a damned panoply of musical virtuosity bolstered extremely well by thoughtful song arrangements.” – Nippertown
