Ovikens Edgeland has released “The Clown”

Edgeland started in 1993 in Oviken outside Östersund and we have played together since then in various cover and tribute bands, but have always had our little “trio bubble”, i.e. Edgeland, with us all the time. To play and stay together, the same three people, for 30 years is a feat in itself, we think 🙂

We didn’t get around to investing anything further in our own material until the drummer moved to Visby in 2014. After that we have recorded and released 4 singles and an EP ourselves (digital only).

The upcoming album, which will be our first full-length, was recorded in Metallfabriken Studio in Östersund by Marcus Edvardsson (formerly singer/guitarist in Souldrainer) who also produced. We ourselves are ridiculously happy with the result!

We’ve only had one gig with the new material so far and it was received really well. Now that the final master is largely finished, we are working hard on the album cover, planning for the releases, reviews, etc. and trying to get as many gigs as possible. There are plans for a 30th anniversary next year and some kind of release party, of course.

The new album and singles will initially be released digitally by ourselves as we do not yet have a collaboration with any record label. *PING* all record labels out there!

A little about The Clown:

A song that has really matured at its own pace. We have had the basic reef for quite a few years, at least 10, probably longer. However, it was never finished as we couldn’t find the right chorus. When one week in May 2021 we gathered in a cabin with our instruments (and a considerable amount of beer, it should be added) far out in the forest outside Östersund to write the album, it came and here is the result. The song has a rather dark text in an otherwise rather “poppy” setting and then mainly in the chorus.
