Biography

Örebro, Sweden (1992 – present)

Millencolin is a band that was formed in October of 1992 by Erik Ohlsson, Mathias Färm and Nikola Sarcevic in Örebro, Sweden. Fredrik Larzon (Fredrik Olof Larsson) joined the band in early 1993 which cemented the lineup. Millencolin as a word derives from the skateboard-trick melancholy (also known as “sad air”) because of their passion for skateboarding. The band releases their CDs on the Swedish label Burning Heart Records. (releases on Epitaph Records in the US). Since 2003, the band hosts a skateboard contest at their own skate park in Örebro, Sweden. It’s named the Millencolin Open. They say they started this annual contest because skateboarding is what brought them together and now they have the chance to bring something good to the town and to skateboarding.

When they first started out, Millencolin sang in and recorded a 10 song tape in 1993 called Melack. burning heart records then got back to Millencolin saying they wanted to release a CD single. Burning Heart had at that time only released two CD singles but they took their chance with the relatively unknown label. They recorded the six song CD-single Use Your Nose in November ‘93, which included new versions of Pain from Goofy and Melack. The single was very well received and they started to play more live shows. They put out their first major release, Tiny Tunes, in ‘94. The recording and mixing of the album took two weeks.
Due to some issues with Warner Brothers the album was renamed in ‘96. Nowadays it’s known as Same Old Tunes.
