Sounds Like Violence

From the small town of Ängelholm, Sweden, dynamic post-hardcore/emo outfit Sounds Like Violence grabbed influence from early-'90s indie rock, citing specific love for the likes of the Afghan Whigs, the Posies, and Kyuss.

From the small town of Ängelholm, Sweden, dynamic post-hardcore/emo outfit Sounds Like Violence grabbed influence from early-'90s indie rock, citing specific love for the likes of the Afghan Whigs, the Posies, and Kyuss. Instead of relocating permanently to the bigger metropolis of Stockholm to take advantage of its broader opportunities, Sounds Like Violence stuck to their hometown roots, and simply toured as much as possible to get their music heard. Vocalist/guitarist Andreas Söderlund, guitarist Philip Hall, bassist/vocalist Daniel Teodorsson, and drummer Daniel Petersson -- most of whom also played in Niccokick, the indie rock group formed by Söderlund in 2001 -- eventually released the EP The Pistol through U.S.-based Deep Elm in April 2004. Critics praised the effort, and a summer three-way split alongside Settlefish and Desert City Soundtrack was equally well received. Sounds Like Violence then released their debut full-length, With Blood on My Hands, in February 2007 through both Deep Elm (North America) and Burning Heart (Europe, U.K., and Japan). « hide
