Video: Refused’s entire set from their surprise show in Brooklyn

On Monday night, Refused played a secret show at The Acheron in Brooklyn, NY following their sold-out gigs at Terminal 5 (hey look, we reviewed one of those here). Chances are, you don’t live in Brooklyn or you’re like me and you do live in Brooklyn but didn’t find out in time to actually get to The Acheron before they hit the stage. If that’s the case, you can watch the entire gig here.

Refused, who broke up sometime back in 1998, announced their reunion last January and have many shows scheduled for this spring and summer in Europe and the United States. Their last studio album “The Shape of Punk to Come” was released on Epitaph in 1998.

Show Review: Refused (Terminal 5, New York City on 4/22/12)

After a 14-year hiatus (twice as long as they were together) Refused is back playing a smattering of shows around the world. They’re not promising any new material, let alone a new record, but performances off their swan song classic The Shape of Punk To Come is brand new to the majority of the band’s fans today, who have never seen them play live.

On a Sunday evening in mid-town New York City at a tri-level club a low hum begins and slowly gets louder over the course of 15 minutes, finally giving way to the Refused bursting out and ready to rock. It’s immediately apparent how at ease these guys are with the stage. Their music, their energy and the golden silhouettes often given to them by their on-stage lighting gives them an aurally and visually explosive performance through and through. As expected, their set largely culled the crazed genius of 1998’s The Shape of Punk To Come, bringing 9 out of its 12 songs to their loving fans (who by the way, landed a hell of a lot more on the hipster side than the punk rock/hardcore side). Singer Dennis Lyxzen talked a good deal about what hardcore means to them and how their lyrics from 14+ years ago were so naïve and angry, yet today mean more to them than ever.

The highlights of the show came toward the end when Dennis brought out Sick of it All vocalist Lou Koller to perform a great cover of SOIA’s Injustice System. And the absolute apex of Refused’s performance was the stadium-worthy sounds of “New Noise”, which set fans off like no other tune that evening.

As Dennis related to the audience, the band was playing record stores and living rooms back when they broke up and to come back to two back-to-back sold out nights at a 3,000 capacity venue was quite surreal for them. Here’s to hoping it won’t be another 14 years before these self-proclaimed “hicks from the middle of nowhere in Northern Sweden” come back to play. And hey, while we’re at it, we can always hope for some new music too.

The show’s set list can be found here and you can watch the entire set on video here.
