Trench Dogs

Trench Dogs is a rock n’ roll band based in Stockholm that draws influence from genres like glam and punk. The music is a mix of both energetic and melodic songs with clear elements of classic rock from the 70s and 80s. Trench Dogs have been active since 2013 and have released two full-length albums.

2018 saw the release of their debut album “Year Of The Dog” and the follow-up “Stockholmiana” was released in March 2023 via Wild Kingdom/Sound Pollution. “Stockholmiana” was praised by several reviewers around the world with a rating of 8 out of 10 by Sweden Rock Magazine, Metalized Magazine (DK), Powerplay Magazine (UK) and Vive Le Rock(UK). The album also entered the Swedish charts in the first week after its release and landed #1 on the vinyl list, #3 on the physical list and #6 on the hard rock list.

Trench Dog’s music is a lively mix of rock n’ roll, glam and punk that manifests itself in fast, danceable party songs as well as big, melodic tunes. Themes such as hangovers, lost love, homesickness, wet nights and the need to hide to avoid getting beaten up on the way home are dealt with in a unique compote that can best be described as something out of a Charles Bukowski book.

Trench Dogs have made a name for themselves as an entertaining, unique and high quality live band. They have played at several festivals and by now, countless club gigs in Sweden, Norway, Germany, England, Finland and Spain.
In January 2024, the band, together with Vrid Upp, did a successful gig in Stockholm which was completely sold out.

Vrid Upp

A musical witch’s brew of promille-strong slugs. Music brewed on tradition. Rock in Swedish with autobiographical content. The music moves from the punk-influenced to calmer songs. The lyrics are saturated with meaning and significance. Swedish rock at its best.

Vrid Upp is Danne Lagerstedt together with Gyp Casino, Peder Andersson, Bentan Bentell and Linus Wallin. These guys can boast a heavy musical CV having played with Easy Action, Hanoi Rocks, Road Rats, Rolene, Andy McCoy band, Pelle Almgren & WoW Liksom, Jerry Nolan, Glorious Bankrobbers and others. In 2023, the band’s first full-length album,” Muren” via Bollmora Rekords was released.

The Royal Beggars

The Royal Beggars, founded in Gothenburg in 2018, capture all the right emotion and attitude. With influences ranging from The Rolling Stones to Guns N Roses to Waylon Jennings, the quartet delivers songs of broken hearts, decadence and lost souls.

Currently on their acclaimed album “Falling to new heights”, the band continues to gain new ground with their growing audience around the world.
