Smash Into Pieces
Smash Into Pieces is an explosive rock band with worldwide aspirations – delivering their special blend of modern arena rock in a purely honest and attractive way. The young, highly ambitious five piece formed in Örebro, Sweden, has built an impressive impact and following in their relatively short existence. SMASH INTO PIECES, as the bands name go, stands for the vision they all share – the path, focus and will to realizing their career goals. SMASH INTO PIECES truly makes modern rock, combining the phenomenal vocal and lyrical depth of Chris Adam Hedman Sörbye with the aggressive yet melodic guitar attacks from Benjamin Jennebo and Per Bergquist, and the hard hitting combination of bassist Viktor Vidlund and drummer Isak Snow. The band reached the semifinal of the Swedish version of “Sweden got talent” in 2009 but dropped out of the competition to sign a record deal with Ninetone Records. Things however really didn’t work out as planned and the collaboration with the label came to a end after just one released single “Fading” – a song still gaining a great deal of attention and airplay, especially from the leading rock radio station Bandit 106.3. The band picked up superb feedback from their hugely energetic live shows and in a short amount of time the band had the pleasure of sharing stage with among others Dead By April, Twisted Sisters, Teddybears Sthm, Raised Fists, Mustasch, Treat and many more. Their first full length international album release came in 2013 with Unbreakable. Further headline tours of Sweden, Finland and the other Nordic countries followed along with support tours of the rest of Europe with Amaranthe The second album The Apocalypse DJ was released in 2015 and another extensive tour cycle continued alongside. For the first time the band were able to complete a full headline Europe wide tour. The third album is due for release at some point in 2016 but there has been no confirmed date at this point. The band announced that Isak Snow had left the band on 1st April 2016. Most people thinking this was a joke of some sort awaited further news. The band announced on the 6th of April that there was a new drummer that had joined the band. The only name given at this stage has shown that The Apocalypse DJ has descended and joined the band. No other information is known at this stage. SMASH INTO PIECES is a must – and will definitely thrive in a larger setting – their sound much definitive says arena. Together, their talent and chemistry will not be ignored or denied.
