REFUSED are the Fourth artist confirmed for Soundwave 2016!


REFUSED wasn’t just ruminating about the lasting impact of popular culture when it began its 1998 album ‘The Shape Of Punk To Come’ with a lyric about classics never going out of style — it was also taking stock of its own turbulent existence, which met an ignominious end later that year in front of 50 kids at a basement show in a Virginia college town. In the ensuing years, the band cast a giant shadow over the world of underground rock, with the boundary-exploding “Shape” rising to all-time legendary status as it influenced a new generation of musical revolutionaries.

If “Shape” blasted apart the constraints of the punk and hardcore worlds with which REFUSED had long been associated, their new album ‘Freedom’ goes a step further by creating a “Thrilling, challenging, life-affirming rollercoaster of a record.” Kerrang!
