Randy » Biography
Randy have been dropped from their previous label burning heart records - popular punk label based in Sweden, and are currently seeking a new label.
—————— Real bands are hard to find nowadays, but Randy is definitely the real deal. When members in other bands happily avoid each other after a long tour, Randy go on vacation together. They are their own family, their own subculture that would take a sociologist (or a psychologist) months to examine. That’s why the title of their new, sixth album is a well chosen one – “Randy the Band”.
Randy is a band in the way that you can only be if you have grown up in a no-hope small-town and played together since childhood. This has brought them the knowledge that nothing comes for free, and an “us versus them”-attitude that is still intact after all the years. Together they have walked the long road, from the DIY-gigs at the youth-centers in the north of Sweden, to becoming a well-renowned name in punk circles all over the world.
Last year they played the Hultsfred festival, Sweden’s most important musical event, for the fifth (!) year in a row. It’s something that few bands can compete with, and says a lot about the status that Randy has achieved over the years in their native country.
