This friday, the 8th of april, we released the new album “6”. The response has been quite overwhelming, with great reviews and great response from the people that are most important to us – you guys.
We’ve been busy rehearsing the new songs this week, and even found time to record a little something that will be released about a month from now. We had some setbacks in the form of Stefan catching pneumonia in the midst of all this, so he and Gotte missed out on friday nights celebration of the album (Gotte was scheduled for the night shift, saving lives, at the hospital we´re he works). Emma, Rickard and Jens celebrated with champagne and dinner at a great burger joint, accompanied by long time friend and singer songwriter extraordinaire Lars Bygdén.
If you haven’t heard the album it’s out at all the major streaming sites. It’s also available in physical form at both online and physical retailers. The vinyl version of the album is a bit delayed, because of the huge demand for vinyl, but should arrive late may or early june. Be sure to check it out though because it’s truly a work of art.
You can find the album here:

Garmarna would like to wish all of our followers a very happy easter with a clip from Rickards latest bass session in Stefans studio. Hope you enjoy this little easter egg.
We haven’t done any updates in a while, but the Stockholm chapter of Garmarna has been busy in Stefans studio as often as possible (remember we have family obligations nowadays). Emma has also done some killer vocal tracks and right now I’m listening to three rough mixes.
It really sounds like a refreshing and daring step forward, musically, and it´s really exciting to hear the result. Many of the songs have been in a demo state for about ten years, some even longer, but it really feels like the songs are taken to new heights and new directions. Dare I say this might turn out to be the best album we´ve done so far? 🙂
Rickard and Stefan teamed up tonight and did some guitar and bass. Rickard had some really good ideas prepared and it’s exciting to go into musical areas we haven’t really explored before!
Exciting day today! We met at Stefan’s studio to start recording vocals for the new album.
Emma worked on four songs, check out the excerpt from one of them – still without title – below.

…Garmarna are actually recording a new album. Two weeks ago we entered Nevo Studios in Sundsvall (where we recorded Vedergällningen) for the first recording session for our sixth album. We recorded ten drum tracks in two days, as well as some demo vocals and some jamming with all five members of the band. This week work on the album continued with Gotte laying down some guitar tracks at Stefans studio in Stockholm.
When will the album be released? When it’s done. Does it sound good? Hell Yeah!
