INVSN (pronounced like “invasion”) has shared their music video for “This Constant War”.
The band has also announced a North American Fall tour in support of their forthcoming LP, The Beautiful Stories.
INVSN will be releasing their anticipated new album June 9 via Dine Alone Records worldwide (minus Scandinavia).
The album and various bundles will be available to pre-order from Dine Alone HERE.
Few other bands than INVSN have better conducted the heritage of the now legendary 90’s hardcore scene in Umeå. Its members have come together from a wide variety of influential Swedish bands. Sara Almgren hails from Masshysteri, Christina Karlsson from Tiger Forest Cat, Anders Stenberg alongside playing with Lykke Li is also a member of Deportees, André Sandström was in DS-13 and Dennis Lyzxén started out in the seminal punk outfit Refused before playing in The (International) Noise Conspiracy with longtime collaborator Almgren.
INVSN has always had a political message, but few other songwriters have the ability to add additional dimensions of existential struggle and soul-searching like Dennis Lyxzén. In our time, when many moral and deeply humanistic values are being challenged by right-wing movements all over the world, INVSN is a necessary outcry from a counter-culture that has far from given up.
