Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1- Casablanca is a classic Rock band from Stockholm, Sweden. They debuted with the single “Downtown” in January 2010.

The band consists of Anders ljung (Space Age Baby Jane) on vocals, Ryan Roxie (Roxie 77, Alice Cooper) and Erik Stenemo (Melody Club) on guitar, drummer Josephine Forsman (Sahara Hotnights) and former professional soccer player Mats Rubarth on bass.

Another single, “La Voix” was released in 2010 to go along with their performance of it during Sweden’s Melodifestivalen 2010. The performance included additional guest vocals by singer Malena Ernman. The single had two versions of the song, both studio recordings, one including Malena and one just the band.

It was two years later that the band would finally have time to record and release a full album. “Apocalyptic Youth” was released in April 2012. The album included original single “Downtown”, but not “La Voix”. Videos were released for “Downtown” and “Love and Desperation”.

The band began a tour for the album, but it was cut short when Ryan Roxie was called back to duty to perform with Alice Cooper again as his touring guitarist couldn’t continue. The band did some occasional shows between Alice tour dates.

Debut album “Apocalyptic Youth” received critical acclaim throughout Swedish reviews and abroad, culminating in UK magazine Classic Rock nominating them as Best New Band of the Year.
