Swedish rockers The Drippers stream the new single »No Stars« taken from their second album »Scandinavian Thunder«
Gothenburg, Sweden based rockers The Drippers stream the new single »No Stars« taken from their second album, »Scandinavian Thunder«, set to release on December 10th, 2021 via The Sign Records.
»No Stars« is the third and final single following »Time For Some Action« and »Overload«.
Says the band: “This is the third and final single before the full album »Scandinavian Thunder« drops Dec. 10th.
It might be our first attempt at a melodic chorus, kinda like the pretty dude in the ugly boys club. So our producer Tomas Skogsberg made sure we made it shitty, since we’re not The Beach Boys. The guitar solo was recorded directly into the mixing board to get the rawest sound we could find. Tomas said that it’s his favorite guitar sound, and he used it on »Supershitty To The Max!« (The Hellacopters) and those classic albums that were recorded on that same mixing board. We said hell yeah!”

About The Drippers:
The spirit of high-energy rock n’ roll is reborn in The Drippers. Fusing the 90’s wave of Scandinavian rock like Gluecifer, The Hellacopters, and Turbonegro with the raw sound of classic bands like The Stooges, MC5, and Radio Birdman. Whether you wanna call The Drippers Garage or Action rock, one thing is sure: The band turns all dials to eleven. Screaming guitars, alcohol-fueled sing-along choruses and raw fucking energy is the pure essence of the band. Welcome to the new wave of Swedish Action Rock.
The Drippers has gained a reputation of being an explosive live band in a classic genre that’s coming back to life. In 2018 the band released their debut EP »Motherfuckers Be Drippin’«. The EP was mixed by Tomas Skogsberg in Sunlight Studio, and distributed through Sound Pollution. The track Solitary Speaking was included in the »A Fistful More Of Rock And Roll« compilation released by Sal Canzonieri of Electric Frankenstein. The track was also released as a music video.
The band has become a popular live act, sharing the bill with bands like Turbonegro, Supersuckers, Hank Von Hell, The Dwarves, The Baboon Show, Mustasch, Robert Pehrsson’s Humbucker, Honningbarna, Scumbag Millionaire, Deadheads, Hard Action, Märvel, Night, etc.
The Dripper’s debut album »Action Rock« was recorded in Sunlight Studio and produced by legendary Tomas Skogsberg (who during the ’90s took The Hellacopters, Gluecifer, Backyard Babies, Entombed under his wings). The result is an eleven-track testimonial that led to a record deal with The Sign Records. The main single, »Gimme The Shakes«, quickly became a sensation in the Action Rock community as the music video was released, it showed a band that was hungrier than ever and ready to take on the world.
The album was released on August 2nd, 2019 to great critical acclaim and a thunderous release party at Weltturbojugendtage in Hamburg. Reviews have been outstanding and by the time of release, several distributors had already sold out their batch of records. Hellion Records in Brazil quickly bought a license to release the album to the South American market. The band also did a UK tour with The Hip Priests in November 2019, before landing big opening slots for acts like Hank Von Hell and Monster Magnet.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all touring was canceled, but the band instead wrote and recorded their second album »Scandinavian Thunder«. The album was once again produced, recorded, and mixed by Tomas Skogsberg in Sunlight Studio. The album channels all the frustration and disillusion that was built up while society was put on hold. The menacing riffs and shitty sound is backed up by strong songwriting and catchy hooks. The band is now ready to release this lightning in a bottle upon the world. Get ready for some »Scandinavian Thunder«.
