Swedish superstars The Helicopters sign new deal with Nuclear Blast records

Legendary Swedish high energy hard rock band The Hellacopters have signed with Nuclear Blast records, with a new studio album already in the bag slated for an early 2022 release.

Whilst the excitement over a new album – their eighth studio album, and the first all-new material since 2005’s Rock and Roll is Dead (and not counting 2008’s covers album Head Off) – bubbles, The Hellacopters seminal third album Grande Rock (1999) is also now – finally – been made available across all digital platforms for the first time, preceded by a remastered version of single “The Devil Stole The Beat From The Lord”.

Formed in 1994 by vocalist/guitarist Nicke Andersson of Entombed and Backyard Babies’ guitarist Dregen together with bassist Kenny Håkansson and drummer Robert Eriksson, The Hellacopters – along with The Hives – are considered one of the most important and influential Swedish rock bands, achieving  two Gold certifications, a Swedish grammy, and a Kerrang! award.

Drummer Eriksson said: “Grande Rock turned out to be a landmark album and the first one of ours that was released simultaneously in May 1999 by four different labels in four different continents.

“Now, in 2021, 22 years after it’s initial release and since long a hot item within record collectors and only available through second hand record stores, Grande Rock will for the first time ever be out digitally on all platforms.”
