New release from: GLORIOUS BANKROBBERS – Back On The Road (April 21, 2023)

Glorious Bankrobbers are back with the long-awaited follow-up to their 2007 album The Glorious Sound Of Rock ‘n’ Roll.

The new album Back On The Road was recorded at House of Voodoo in Stockholm during the pandemic and mixed by Robert Pehrsson at Studio Humbucker. 11 great songs spanning from high-energy action rock to a harmonica-fueled cowboy ballad.


Glorious Bankrobbers were formed in Stockholm in 1983 and the debut album was released in 1984 on Planet Records, Produced by Kee Marcello (Easy Action and later Europe). But G.B. broke up soon after the release due to their manager, who sold all the promotion records in secondhand stores in order to get money for beer, so G.B. never got any reviews or radio airplay.

The group members played in different bands for a couple of years, but then G.B. joined forces again and released the album Dynamite Sex Dose in 1989 (without their former manager…). The video for the song “Dynamite Sex Dose” got played at heavy rotation on MTV’s “Headbangers Ball”. G.B. also got signed by Ema-Telstar who was Sweden’s biggest live promoter. They toured heavily both in Sweden and Norway and also supported major acts like Europe and Yngwie Malmsteen.

In late 1990 the American manager Rick Shaw took the band for a two-week promotion tour in N.Y.C. where they among other gigs played as support to The Sweet at The Cat Club. They also played the legendary New York City music club CBGB. The gig was released as the live album Glorious Bankrobbers – Live at CBGB’s N.Y.C.

No Deal

Unfortunately, G.B. didn’t get any major deal in the USA, but they managed to turn down playing support to Alice in Chains!!! (…much later G.B. got a US deal and their two first albums were released on Demon Doll Records in 2018…) The singer then left the band and started singing with the Norwegian band Backstreet Girls. The rest of the band reformed as Mental Hippie Blood with new singer Michael Oran. Mental Hippie Blood released two albums.

However, after many years the band got together again and in 2007 they released the album The Glorious Sound of Rock’n’Roll on the label Sweden Metal Records. The band started touring and played on festivals with among others Nazareth, The Quireboys and Mustasch. But in 2012 the drummer Oden tragically dies and once again the band was put on ice.

Until Now!!! Glorious Bankrobbers have recorded a brand-new album. The album will be released by Bollmora Rekords and distributed by Sound Pollution. The 21st of April Back On The Road will be released on vinyl, cd and all digital platforms. G.B. have also made three videos to back up the album release.
