Hardcore Superstar – Release New Video “Baboon”

/ba’boon/ : noun

A loud, angry, anti-social primate with large teeth, and aggressive tendencies . . . Additionally a loud, angry single and video by Swedish Rock Legends ‘HARDCORE SUPERSTAR’ who are also known for their anti-social behaviour and aggressive tendencies.

2018 is proving to be wild year for the Swedish purveyors of Street Metal as they shape up to release their highly anticipated new album “You Can’t Kill My Rock N’ Roll” through GAIN Music Entertainment on September 21st2018.

So far this year the band have enjoyed massive radio success and critical acclaim with the release of their first three singles, “Have Mercy On Me”,
“Bring The House Down” and “Electric Rider” and they are now about to cause even more mayhem and frenzy with their new single and video for “Baboon”.

Recorded at the beautiful Österlyckan Studios just outside of Gothenburg, “Baboon” is the perfect mixture of aggression, attitude and debauchery, all the things we come to expect from a HARDCORE SUPERSTAR release, and for the video, the band have once again partnered with the acclaimed Swedish filmmaker Max Ljungberg to produce a hilarious 70’s cop themed promo, complete with car chases, shoot outs and powdered donuts!

The single will be available on all digital platforms May 18th and will be followed up as an exclusive, limited edition 7″ vinyl single.

Since the debut album was unleashed in 1998, Hardcore Superstar have crossed the globe multiple times sharing stages with Rock and Metal Royalty including AC/DC, Aerosmith, Kiss and Motörhead. They have also performed at the world’s largest and most distinguished Rock Festivals such as Wacken, Download, Loudpark, and SwedenRock to name just a few.

More dates have been added to the bands current, highly successful tour including a tour of Australia and the fun doesn’t stop there as there are more dates to add and countries to visit that will be announced soon.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
