”A warm thank you to everyone in the band and to all of you, who have inspired, cheered us on and shared the musical joy that Backdraft has given. Now it’s time for me to move on with new projects. Hugs to all of you! /Robert”

Sweden Rock Festival 2013, in less than one week from now, will be Backdraft guitarist and founding member Robert’s last show with the band. Robert actually stepped down a year and a half ago and the other band members have since – as you may have noticed – focused on their other bands. Robert would now like to make this official before his final show, at Sweden Rock Festival.

The rest of the band wish Robert all the best in the future, and we thank him for all these years, the music and experiences we’ve shared together. We are happy to be able to close this chapter of the Backdraft story in such a grand style, at Sweden Rock Festival, where we played our first big show back in 2001.

We’re also excited to have Snejken joining Robert and Jon on stage for a one time only triple guitar attack. This is obviously the only opportunity to see this live. However, we are filming and recording the show for a possible dvd or other type of release. If you can join us at Sweden Rock, make sure your voice goes to eleven to help us share this special moment.

is Backdraft's bass player, also a journalist and writer plus sometimes dj at clubs like Nuggets, M/S Alkohol and Flykten.

    I was walking by to take a piss just as your set started. I stayed for the whole show and was blown away. You have a new fan from America. Hope to see you guys again live in the states.
