Frontiers announce the signing of REVERTIGO, the Stockholm based duo of Mats Levén and Anders Wikström

ReVertigo Band News Thumb
Frontiers Music Srl
are proud to announce the signing of ReVertigo, the Stockholm, Sweden based duo of Mats Levén (vocals) and Anders Wikström (guitar). Their debut album will be released in early 2018.

As close personal and musical friends for nearly 30 years, ReVertigo is the next chapter in an ongoing collaboration between the two culminating with their self-produced new album.

Anders says, "Mats and I always had an idea of creating something that would celebrate the fact that we really enjoy working together, but with busy separate music careers, it wasn´t until 2016, we sat down and concentrated on new songs with a firm plan"

Adds Mats, "The fact that we, besides writing for other international artists, hadn´t done a proper album together in 25 years also gave the writing and recording process of ReVertigo a purpose."

In September 2016, a three song demo found it´s way to Frontiers Music Srl, who decided to sign the band on the spot. In between touring activities with Candlemass, Treat, and Trans-Siberian Orchestra, the pair finalized the 11 songs featured on the debut album. All the instruments on the album are played by Mats and Anders, except for the drums, which were performed by their dear friend Thomas Broman (Great King Rat, Michael Schenker Group, Electric Boys). "Both of us have a strong mutual vision, that´s why we choose to play and sing most of the instruments and parts on the album ourselves," says Mats. Peter Mansson is responsible for the mixing duties, which took place at Mir Studios in Stockholm and Svante Forsbäck mastered at Chartmakers in Helsinki.

ReVertigo's music itself is a blend of heavy, yet melodic songs paying tribute to their favorite albums and artists from the 70's, 80´s, and up to present day filtered through the chemistry that comes to life when Mats and Anders join forces.

"I love when you get that teenage excitement together over a song idea, and how you hear a finished gem in your head, hence the bands name ReVertigo," says Mats.

"We might not be reinventing the wheel, but we´re certainly putting on fresh tires," tells Anders.

ReVertigo's debut album will be released worldwide in early 2018 through Frontiers Music Srl, with multiple singles and videos preceding the release of the album.
