The Swedish punks, Borgerlig Begraving, releases their third single “Gatulopp mot döden” from the upcoming debut album “Gör vad du vill”, out on June 3rd.
This punk trio was formed around Christmas 2018 before any of the three cousins had even turned 16. The band was given the political name Borgerlig Begravning (Civil funeral) after a text in a storefront that the band saw on the way home from a punk gig. The guys quickly made a name for themselves in the Swedish punk scene and played with established bands like Asta Kask and Mimikry during their debut year. The band released a 6-track EP in 2020 and in 2021 a single with two songs.
The long wait for an album is now over! The band’s 12-track long debut album is ready to be released!
Borgerlig Begravning was formed in boredom and the desire to play fast music that mattered. Asta Kask has been the biggest inspiration and their EP “Historien dömer oss alla” gave the trio the push they needed to understand how wonderful punk can be. Bands from the childhood such as Ramones and Ebba Grön has been with the band since the start and the swedes been influenced from all possible corners of the punk scene, from Bad Religion to GBH as an example.
The election year is here and the message from Borgerlig Begravning is clear – it’s time to bury the conservatives.
