Drum, bass and saxophone distorted beyond recognition is not the most obvious setup for dystopian rock'n'roll. Nevertheless, Kriget creates a very distinct expression due to this rather unusual instrumental trio.
The three Swedes' mechanical, pared-down but also playful free-form jazz often have references to Germans such as Peter Brötzmann and D.A.F.
But one of the best things about this music is its immediacy. Kriget can deliver a thunderclap that will shake your head. Get ready for some instrumental future music that is rawer and more to the bone than an x-ray.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
