Swedish high energy rock and roll band THE HELLACOPTERS‘ have released a brand new single “So Sorry I Could Die“. The song is the 3rd single taken from the band’s 8th studio album, “Eyes Of Oblivion,” which will be released on April 1st, 2022! Produced by Nicke Andersson & Chips Kisbye (who has overseen every Hellacopters album since “High Visibility” in the year 2000), it will be the band’s first full-length since the release of their temporary farewell record “Head Off” in 2008.
“So Sorry I Could Die” – a stripped down yet intense blues ballad that also pays tribute to southern soul in its vocal delivery – is probably the most unusual song on the album and maybe even in THE HELLACOPTERS’ whole catalog so far. Make sure to check it out below!
The melancholic video for the song was once again directed by Amir Chamdin and edited by Emil Klinta, who were also responsible for the two previous music videos, “Reap A Hurricane” & “Eyes of Oblivion,” and had been working on several projects with The Hellacopters before, e.g. the documentary “I’m In The Band” (2021).
NICKE ANDERSSON (vocals & guitars) comments: “The album has 10 songs and although it’s obviously not easy to be objective at all, I think musically it sums up everything we’ve touched upon from the start in 1994 up until now. Some of the songs date back as far as 10 years or more, and some were written more recently. It’s rock and roll played with high energy, so for lack of a better term I say High Energy Rock And Roll. You could say it sounds like The Beatles meets Judas Priest or Lynyrd Skynyrd meets the Ramones but the best way to describe this album is that it sounds like The Hellacopters today.”
