Multiple award-winning, 20 million streaming (Spotify) and gold awarded Swedish electro/rock-export SMASH INTO PIECES recently released their third album “RISE AND SHINE” (Jan 27th, 2017 worldwide). With the album passing 10 million streams on Spotify just 8 months after the release, several top-list placings on the European album-charts and with more than 80 executed live shows in 17 different countries (USA, CAN, GER, UK, FRA to name a few) since January 2017 the band has set the bar up high for the rest of the year to come.
As one of Scandinavias most intriguing, mystical and explosive live acts – SMASH INTO PIECES (a.k.a SIP / Smash) with it´s founder and leader ”The Apocalypse DJ” has caught the attention of the crowd live as well as on social medias. Executing Skydives in live-television, showing of The Apocalypse Djs Parkour moves / Dance-skills or Fighting capability seems likely to be a normal day at the SIP office.
The bands catchy and melodic house-melodies blends in with the Swedish raw-rock sound and creates perfect mix between old and the new. The time has come for SMASH INTO PIECES to RISE AND SHINE!”
This is what the bands creator and drummer ”The Apocalypse Dj” has to say about the new album, the band and their goals:
RISE AND SHINE:
Like the rest of you, I was born on disaster highway. A place where you travel for a lifetime, without going nowhere. Like a big, never-ending freeway for your predestined life that doesn’t seem to have any exits.
While people around me accepted to live sadly ever after, like ants building a pile of dirt for their queen, that wasn’t enough for me. I always felt different. I always felt like I was meant for something else. I needed to rock my microphone.
I lost track of time, lost track of what was real and what was fiction. And sometimes I think I almost lost my mind, but in the end I came out on top. A brand new me was born. A recreation of my being. A remix that had developed a set of super-skills. With this power, I knew my dreams could become true. I just needed to find a group of like-minded individuals.
I searched for many years for the most devoted, the most talented and the most well hung musicians out there. I wasn’t sure how they would react to me and my powers, so I made them come together, directing them from the shadows. As the band grew, I grew with them.
With “Unbreakable” I was just a spirit in the booklet, With “The Apocalypse DJ”, my name and photo made it to the cover. With “Rise and Shine”, I’m taking my place as a superhero, DJ and drummer of the band. We are ready to let the world know what lies beyond disaster highway, and all of you are welcome to follow!
Anything standing between us and our dreams, we SMASH INTO PIECES!
