Rolling Stone recently conducted an interview with Refused singer Dennis Lyxzén, who talked about the band’s reunion, their anticipated new album Freedom, and the future. About the new album, Dennis states:
“People have these expectations and beliefs that they pin on us. There are some fans who have lived with The Shape of Punk to Come for their entire lives and have decided that’s all we are. But now it’s time for us to decide what we want our legacy to be. And this album is a good start-over, so to speak.”
Freedom, which is due for release next month via Epitaph Records, will be Refused’s first new material since their seminal 1998 album, The Shape of Punk to Come.
