Let’s just quote the Sweden Rock Festival announcement for now:
”Sweden’s southern rock champs have been praised by the enthusiasts of the genre, not to mention the reviewers. The band’s catalogue consists of three albums so far: ”Here to save you all” (2001), ”The second coming” (2007) and ”This heaven goes to eleven” (2011). The song ”Yesterdays and tomorrows” from the latter was even distributed by none other than Classic Rock Magazine. At their third show at the Sweden Rock Festival, Backdraft will add yet another beloved southern rock attribute: triple guitars! They will take to the stage with all three guitarists that’s ever been in the band, for the first and only (?) time.”<

Here’s a little something for all of you who haven’t been able to catch the band in a while: an interview (eh, better let the music do the talkin’, right?!) with a bunch of live footage from the Serie Z Festival show, from Jerez in Spain in October. Featuring both new and old songs, and y’all gotta have to sing along for Out Of Here, where drummer Niklas’ mic was apparently inaudible. Many thanks from Five Idiots Abroad to all of you who came to this show!
Thanks to all who came out to see us at Kulturhuset, Örebro at the Live At Heart festival this past weekend! We had a blast. And our good buddy Matte Holm even got two clips from the show, which we’d like to share with y’all.
First, show opener Just Ain’t Right and Yesterdays & Tomorrows (which is also featured on the CD with the new issue of Classic Rock Magazine – check it out!)
And then, Nick The Dick singin’ and playing his ass off on Out Of Here:
Backdraft are proud to return to the Serie Z Festival in Jerez de la Froñtera in Andalucia, southern Spain! We played in 2002, which was something like our Spanish breakthrough, with a few thousand die-hard rock fans attending and the event broadcast on teevee (we even held a drunken, confused press-conference, more about that further on…)
