The long awaited new album from Swedish Agent Side Grinder! With their past albums "Agent Side Grinder" (2008), "Irish Recording Tape" (2009) and "Hardware" (2012) they have grown to become a respected and well known act all over Europe and also in North America, where Hardwire was licensed to Artoffact. Album of the month in Vice Magazine, Manifest awards and several big annual best-of lists. The list is long. They have collaborated with artists such as Dirk Ivens (Klinik) and Kite, played festivals such as Grauzone, Wave-Gotik Treffen, The Great Escape, Eurosonic, Paaspop, Les Transmusicales de Rennes, Drop Dead Festival and Arvikafestivalen.
The new “Alkimia” is the bands fourth effort and their most accomplished work to date. On this album, ASG refines their unique sound, a mix of post-punk, industrial, electro and dra-matic pop. The first single “This is us”, released in November, became an instant under- ground hit. And each track has the feel and potential to become equally strong singles! "Alkimia" is a new era of dark popmusic and Agent Side Grinder will lead the way for bands that will follow. The perfect mixture of Joy Division, Suicide, Depeche Mode and with the same experimental lust as Einstürzende Neubauten.
