Playing shows and touring with the likes of Kiss, the Sonics, Mustasch, Juliette Lewis, Backyard Babies and Imperial State Electric Satan Takes A Holiday is now firmly held as one of the best live bands in Sweden and a fixture at festivals and venues around Europe.
After rigorously touring on the back of Aliens (2017) the band set aside the spring and summer of 2018 to conceptualize and write the fifth album, this time with both new and old friends and collaborators such as Patrik Berger, Royal Blood and Exit Electric.
Songs that formed the basis of the album were naturally steeped in the intensity of the bands notorious live performance, but this time alongside a reinvented simplicity and a broader palette of sounds and themes. Recorded in the Dustward, yet again with the band’s by now go-to producer Stefan Brändström, STAH’s fifth album is a tremendous show of confidence. This is a more mature Satan Takes A Holiday. More fearless than ever before. No holds barred. All high stakes.
