The Legends To Play Shows In NYC

The man behind Stockholm-based The Legends, Johan Angergård (Club 8, Pallers, Acid House Kings), and the highly coveted Labrador Records (equivalent to Sweden's Sub Pop) has been known to take his audience for quite a ride. With jarring shifts in musical direction since 2003, The Legends are notorious for being resilient to change; unwilling to compromise their sound, while relentlessly confusing and annoying his audience along the way. As Brooklyn Vegan noted, this is not a surprise since Angergård is an '80s indie pop sponge who lists Lloyd Cole, Front 242, My Bloody Valentine, OMD and about 20 other disparate acts as influences

And back by popular demand, The Legends will perform music from their forthcoming release "Over and Over" plus a few gems from earlier releases the week of June 22nd in New York City. This marks their first NYC appearance since 2006.

"Over and Over" will be released on June 16th via Labrador Records/Caroline.
