We are stoked to announce that we are working with the influential Swedish titan of the extreme saxophone, Mats Gustafsson, from now on.
The apocalyptic quintet The End is a Swedish-Norwegian affair, and Gustafsson’s latest take on riff-driven „Rock“ with a capital „R“: Co-lead with fellow saxophonist Kjetil Møster and featuring the stunning Ethiopian-born singer Sofia Jernberg, who seems able to just perform everything: From Arnold Schönberg’s Pierrot Lunaire to contemporary classical to free improv to song-based material. They are backed by the heavy rhythm section of Norwegians Anders Hana and Børge Fjordheim, who both have a strong background in noise and metal! Hell will break loose if you allow this combo onto your stage, promised.
On tour late in April/Early in May and in November 2022 - always available for festivals
