Biography

Refused is a band that originated in the underground hardcore scene but that eventally developed into a internationally renowned punk act that formed in Umea, Sweden, in 1991. They disbanded when the tour in support of their third album ‘The Shape of Punk to Come’ (1998) imploded due to severe internal strife. After a fourteen-year hiatus they briefly reformed in 2012 but the band was on life support until 2014. One year later their most recent full-length dropped with ‘Freedom’. Despite their limited commercial success they are cited as an influence by such artists as Papa Roach, Linkin Park and members of Blink 182 and Rise Against. We are happy to welcome the flagbearers of modern punk for their GMM debut. (#GMM19)
