A few weeks back CGCM‘s Rich “The Meister” Dillon had a zoom video chat with his friend Anders LA Rönnblom. The two have remained in contact since an interview back in 2012 and have tried a couple of times to meet in person, yet always just out of sync. While the chat encompassed updates on Anders‘ bands Killer Bee and X-Romance, basically the focus was his new project then called just Disorder. You can hear the chat via the YouTube video below. After their chat, the name was adjusted to Social Disorder and just today, March 18, 2021, announced a label signing.
PRESS RELEASE from Rock ‘N’ Growl Promotions:
Swedish classic hard rock band, SOCIAL DISORDER, featuring former members of Guns ‘n’ Roses, Rainbow, Ozzy Osbourne, Armored Saint, King Diamond and more, have signed a deal with AFM Records.
Anders LA Rönnblom has now put a new band together, called SOCIAL DISORDER. Anders is best known as the founder and songwriter from Killer Bee and X-Romance and as member of Wolfpakk – his ability to write great riffs with classic melodies is what always has defined him. This time he is on his own in some way, but still together with great friends.
This project has evolved to an album, which is a journey through Anders‘ life, inspirations from his musical past and could easily be seen as a concept album – this is his story. Every song carries a message, a story of a period in his life. The struggle with his alcoholism, demons and his way back. His musical story will be unleashed later in 2021.
The international line-up speaks for itself: Tracii Guns (Guns ‘n’ Roses, LA Guns), Rudy Sarzo (Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake), Jeff Duncan (Armored Saint, Odin), Dave Stone (Rainbow), Snowy Shaw (King Diamond, Dream Evil, Mercyful Fate), Shawn Duncan (DC4, Odin), Leif Ehlin (Perfect Plan) to name a few collaborates on this melodic and timeless Rock album. The unknown singer Thomas Nordin is an uncut diamond from northern Sweden who really shows how to deliver great vocals. So “don’t judge the book by the cover”!
AFM Records is very happy about this new artist: “Signing a band like SOCIAL DISORDER, a band that will experience its debut with us, always comes with a certain amount of risk, but we definitely consider ourselves up to it! The recordings are bursting of heart and power. The band members are all veterans who have been through the motions of countless tours, recordings and one or another complication. This feeling is also reflected in Anders‘ songwriting. The excitement and yet the danger of a downfall. A constant interplay of emotions. The whole album presents a journey into Anders‘ soul and we are more than grateful to him for giving us this inside view.”
