Skenet stands for the renewal of the genre folk rock and takes it to places it's never been! This is the long-awaited follow-up to their much-acclaimed debut album of stellar new electric instrumental folk rock, Allting rullar (SUBL 105CD/104LP, 2015). On their new album Morsning, Skenet establish their sound and reputation as one of Sweden's premier folk rock band and offers a unique mix of dirty riffs and Swedish fiddler traditions -- on the border between tradition and innovation. A folk psychedelic Led Zeppelin meets the legacy of Swedish fiddle culture -- in the gray zone between a pat on the cheek and a knock-out. With the help of the celebrated producer Mikael Herrström (Thåström, Popsicle, Weeping Willows, Ane Brun, etc.) behind the mixer desk, Morsning takes you closer to the raw, energetic sound that became Skenet's signum. Most of the songs on Morsning are written by the siblings Staffan and Lena Jonsson, who are both legitimate "Riks-spelmän" (National Swedish Fiddlers). Staffan and Lena have also performed as special guest musicians with many musical constellations including Dungen, for example. Since the release of the previous album, Skenet has been touring all over Scandinavia and Europe Sweden, including performances at some of the largest folk music festivals in Europe. They will tour even more around this new release. If you dig progressive psych and folk rock, this is definitely for you. Edition of 500.

A few words from Skenet: "Every mile in the tour bus has given us a chance to write and play much more together. The Morsning album is the result of what we want to say more than anything else right now! We are hugely proud!"
