We regret to inform you that the upcoming concert with The Sounds here at The Complex has been rescheduled to the fall, with a new date coming soon. Hang on to your tickets as they're still valid for the new date. Here is the statement we received.

"Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 worldwide crisis, The Sounds have been forced to postpone their entire North American tour planned to take place April/May and reschedule to September/October 2020, as well as all of their other concerts and festivals around the world. This has left a void for fans who were so excited to see the band perform and they had been searching for a way to reach their large global fanbase while the world is forced to be “staying in”. That’s when their hometown venue KB reached out to run an idea by them. After some discussions the band was invited to come and perform a concert on their infamous stage to perform a full production concert that will be broadcast live via the band and the venue’s social media websites, along with a group of media partners and fans in territories around the world who will all simultaneously livestream the concert. It was very important to the band that the concert could be watched for free rather than through a pay-per-view or behind a pay wall so that all of their fans could access the concert.

The livestream will start at 21:00 CET / 12:00 PST on Friday, April 17th, via The Sounds, Kulturbolaget and KB West’s social media pages. The performance will be followed by a short Q&A with the band."

Your tickets are valid for the new date and there is no need to take any action.

For a band whose history as a band spans a little over two decades, Swedish indie rockers THE SOUNDS sure don’t sound like it. Resonating the excitement and dynamism of a band who are getting their very first hint of success, The Sounds are gearing up for the release of their sixth studio album, Things We Do For Love, a sweepingly majestic slice of Nordic indie rock that crackles and pops in all the right places.

Propulsive in its latent passion, Things We Do for Love kicks off with its urgent and careening title track that strains with Johan Richter’s muscular staccato bassline that highlights vocalist Maja Ivarsson’s very distinctive assertive vocals while the guitar work of Felix Rodriguez along with the keyboards and guitar from Jesper Anderberg weave in and out of Fredrik Blond’s focused drums. It’s the sound of a band whose chemistry is inherent and natural, not calculated. The pulsating keys in “Safe and Sound” continue to propel the band forward, while the atmospheric and balladic “Changes” displays the band’s diversity and ability to effortlessly craft impactful songs. “I can’t put my finger on what it is exactly, but I really like the vibe of this track,” says Fredrik of “Changes”. “It’s a simple song and all the instruments and vocals just fit together so nicely.”

Formed in 1998 in Sweden, The Sounds exploded on the alt-rock scene with their wildly lauded 2003 debut Living in America and its breakthrough singles “Seven Days a Week”, "Rock'n Roll", and the aptly named title track. Fronted by the striking Maja Ivarsson, The Sounds have continued to remain on the forefront of the music scene, releasing a handful of albums, each spawning single after single like “Tony the Beat”, "Painted By Numbers", "Song With A Mission", "No One Sleeps When I'm Awake", “Beatbox”, “Something to Die For”, “Shake Shake Shake” and “Thrill”.

“I can only speak for myself, but I feel very proud of this one. I’m able to write songs from a different perspective this time, being a mom and all,” beams Maja, referring to her baby boy who just turned five years old earlier this year. “It’s been quite some time since we last released an album and a lot of great things have happened in between.”

Gearing up for a new album and tour later this Spring, the band is excited to return to the U.S. “It’s gonna be absolutely amazing coming back to the U.S again,” she says excitedly. We’ve done almost 20 tours on American soil and we love every bit of it. It feels like coming home.”

Things We Do for Love will be released on May 1, 2020 on Arnioki Records worldwide.
