Swedish rockers The Hellacopters featuring Nicke Andersson (Lucifer, Imperial State Electric, Entombed, Death Breath, The Solution) and Dregen (Backyard Babies, ex-Michael Monroe) stream the track »Done Fighting« from the B-side of their brand new »Reap A Hurricane« 7” single, which was just released on February 4th, 2022.

»Reap A Hurricane« is taken from the upcoming album, »Eyes Of Oblivion«, out on April 1st, 2022 via Nuclear Blast Records.

The band comments: “»Reap A Hurricane« – our first vinyl 7” in years – is released today. The flip side »Done Fighting« is now available for immediate listening pleasure even if you don’t own a copy of the vinyl. Out now on all digital platforms! Play LOUD!”

»Reap A Hurricane« continues the good old Hellacopters tradition of releasing physical 7″ singles in each album cycle. The 7″ vinyl of »Reap A Hurricane« will be released on February 4th, 2022, and it features an exclusive song called »Done Fighting« on its B-side. The 7″ is available in two different colour variants, red and green, which applies to both the vinyl and the respective cover.

The Hellacopters were formed in 1994 by Nicke Andersson (vocals and guitar), Dregen (guitar), Kenny Håkansson (bass) and Robert Eriksson (drums). At that time Andersson was renowned in the metal scene for his work in well-known Swedish death metal band Entombed and Dregen had built a reputation as co-founder and guitarist of his main band Backyard Babies.

Next to The Hives and the Backyard Babies, The Hellacopters are considered one of the most important and influential Swedish rock bands of the 1990s and 2000s – they achieved two Gold certifications, won the Swedish Grammy and a Kerrang! award, have amassed 100 million streams to date and have supported and toured with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Kiss, Black Sabbath, ZZ Top or the Foo Fighters. They have released seven albums, ranging fuzzed-out & supercharged garage punk on »Supershitty To The Max!« (1996) & »Payin’ The Dues« (1997) to perfectly crafted & soulful high-energy rock’n’roll with a strong vintage vibe on the following albums, »Grande Rock« (1999), »High Visibility« (2000), »By The Grace Of God« (2002) and »Rock & Roll Is Dead« (2005). A compilation of cover songs called »Head Off« was released in 2008 and marked the band’s last album before ultimately dissolving. In addition The Hellacopters have released almost four dozen singles, splits and EPs until this day, most of which got the limited 7inch or 10inch vinyl treament, making them a vinyl collector’s dream… or worst nightmare.

The Hellacopters reunited in 2016 to play a few shows for the 20th anniversary of their debut album, and have proven an unstoppable force ever since, performing at Sweden Rock Festival, Psycho Las Vegas, Download, Hellfest, Roskilde, Ilosaarirock, among others. In October 2021 they announced that they had signed a deal with Nuclear Blast Records and a new album would be in the works for Spring 2022.
