DS Exclusive Interview: Dennis Lyxzén (AC4, T(I)NC, Refused)

In the 1990s, in a place the world wasn’t aware of, Refused created music that challenged peoples ideals and reshaped peoples thoughts on how hardcore punk was meant to be. At the time, the band were just making the music they wanted to, not what anyone expected them to.  As a result they stand as one of the most influential hardcore bands of all time.

It’s now 15 years later and Dennis Lyxzén is still challenging the ideals of the modern day music community. Dennis was in Australia recently on tour with the Bloody Beetroots (WTF I hear you say), and he was kind enough to take time out of his schedule to talk to DyingScene about what Refused created, what punk rock should really mean to you, the good, the bad and the ugly of the internet, and his straight-edge and vegan lifestyle choices. Read the full interview here.

AC4 will hit Australian shores for the first time in April with the Star Fucking Hipsters and it’s all thanks to the cats at New Noise Agency. Head to the bottom of the story for full tour details.

Video: Rise Against cover Minor Threat with Brian Baker and Dennis Lyxzén (Refused)

Wow this is seriously awesome! Rise Against have posted a video of them performing a cover of Minor Threat in Sweden. It’s especially cool because unlike the version that appears on the This is Noise EP, it features guest appearances from Brian Baker, a founding member of Minor Threat. He now plays guitar for Bad Religion, of course. Also to be noted is the guest spot from Dennis Lyxzén, who is the former front-man for Refused. Check it out here.

Your last chance to catch them live this year will be on September 25th and 26th when they play the 2010 Epicenter.

Refused are not reuniting, they are just re-issuing

refusedAlright, well the nasty thing about rumors is that a lot of the time they turn out to be untrue.  Unfortunately the recent rumor swirling around that legendary Swedish hardcore act Refused were getting back together falls into this category.  The band is, however, re-issuing their 1998 classic album The Shape Of Punk To Come June 8th on Epitaph Records.

In an article from Exclaim, former Refused singer Dennis Lyxzen stated: “No, we are not reforming. Me and David are going on tour next week with our new Hardcore band Ac4 – sleeping on kids floors and playing doordeals, that seems to be more in line with what we deserve… haha.”
