Biography

Hardcore Superstar are a band from Gothenburg, Sweden with heavy influences. The band was formed in 1997 and have released seven albums to date. Besides a short break, Hardcore Superstar have continuously toured and recorded since their formation.

Hardcore Superstar formed in autumn 1997 in Gothenburg and signed to Gain soon afterwards. Their debut album was recorded and released in Sweden. The album attracted the attention of English label Music for Nations and a new worldwide contract was drawn up. The new album, which became the band’s “official debut album” contains a few new songs, a new cover and has a new name, “Bad Sneakers and a Pina Colada”.

The album contains the hits “Someone Special”, “Liberation” and “Have You Been Around” which all achieve top positions on the singles charts in Sweden. The band has made its breakthrough. The video for “Liberation” was nominated for a Swedish Grammy and the band set off on their first tour of Europe and Japan.

2001 saw the release of the follow-up,”Thank You (For Letting Us Be Ourselves)” with singles “Shame” and “Mother’s Love/Significant Other. Once again the band toured in Europe and Japan and this time they also went to Canada.

They hooked up with fellow Gothenburg band LOK on a single called “Staden Göteborg” (The City of Gothenburg) and performed a now classic show during the PopStad Göteborg festival. In the summer they opened for AC/DC at a packed Ullevi Stadium.
