The new album entitled ”OUT OF THE DARK” will be released September 13th, 2019 on High Roller Records. I don’t think I have ever been so proud of a release before. I hope you will dig it too!

The album was recorded and mixed at my studio Studio Humbucker

SHADOW PLAY (R. Gallagher)

It’s been quiet here for a while. I’ve been busy upgrading ”Studio Humbucker” and writing songs for the third album. We recorded a version of Rory Gallagher’s ”Shadow Play” a few years ago, it was released on a limited 7″ through High Roller Records. Here’s a brand new version of it, recorded at ”Studio Humbucker”. If everything worked out right you should be able to download it from Soundcloud if you want to get the file. I think there’s a limit of 100 downloads. If that limit is reached, I will make it available somewhere else and post a link here.

Feel free to share it and happy holidays!
// Robert

Robert Pehrsson’s Humbucker’s self-titled debut album was met with rave reviews. Now the Swede is back with the follow up “Long Way to the Light”. Expectations are sky high.
– I think the new album is stronger, he says.

Robert Pehrsson’s Humbucker was released in 2013. It was a perfect example for a contemporary classic rock album, landing the Swedish guitarist an “album of the month” award in Germany’s leading independent metal magazine Rock Hard. No wonder that expectations for the follow-up album “Long Way to the Light” are high.

The record contains eight brand new compositions (plus a re-worked version of the single “The Hollow in a Rising Tone”). With songs such as “Send Her My Love” and “Traveling Through the Dark” Robert Pehrsson’s Humbucker is back with an even slicker guitar playing and sharper song arrangements. And maybe even poppier?
– It might be. But it’s not really intentional. I like the songs short and to the point with a strong hook. I think people sometimes put me in the same category as more hard rocking bands, and we’re not really that type of band in the end. I want the freedom to do other styles as well. If I look at the old bands, I like that they were all very diverse, not playing on max all the time, he says.

Robert Pehrsson says the biggest difference between the first album and “Long Way to the Light” is that this time around the band has played live.
– This time I knew I wanted to be able to perform the songs live in their true form. I also co-worked with Joseph Tholl, Nicke Andersson and Andreas Axelsson on some tracks. So I think there is more of a band feeling to this one. And that was something I wanted from the beginning when I started working on this album.

“Long Way to the Light” was recorded mostly by Robert Pehrsson and Nicke Andersson (drums and bass), with help from Joseph Tholl,
– But several of the musicians from the previous album also appear on “Long Way to the Light”. So does members of the live line-up, Jakob Ljungberg and Jens Lagergren. It’s a mixture of really talented friends from other bands: Enforcer, Imperial State Electric, The Hellacopters, Tribulation, for example. Me and my friends tend to do a lot of stuff together Here are some other names: Robert Eriksson, Jonas Wikstrand, Johan Bäckman, Johannes Borgström. The list goes on!
