Peter Moren of Peter Bjorn And John checked in with fans on the Swedish indie pop group’s MySpace (@peterbjornandjohn) on Tuesday (September 16). Peter writes:
Long time no talk! Been super busy lately. I did some solo gigs with José Gonzales in the UK which was great fun, good audiences and great company. After that came the amazing evening in Stockholm when PBJ performed with some very talented schoolkids and other guests at the Amnesty Festival, only new tracks from our very soon upcoming instrumental “Seaside Rock”-album. It’s a very different record but my favorite PBJ-album so far.
Don’t miss that!
And all the time in between we’ve been hard at work on the next album with vocals (to be released in March 2009, if everything goes as planned..) and also some other secret projects. It’s fun to make music! I’m really, really sorry that the London KOKO-gig got cancelled, but that really was’nt our fault. Anyway on Thursday we are off to our first ever trip to Brazil and Argentina and I’m really, really looking forward to that. When we’ll be back I’m gonna do some joint solo-dates with Tobias Fröberg again in our home sweet Sweden. So all of you Swedes, watch out! First comes Stockholm and Södra Teatern on the 14th of October and then Lund and Mejeriet on the 16th. More dates to come. We’re gonna mix up songs by the two of us into one big show and bring along some friends to play.
A good way to meet the fall in Sweden! More info at myspace.com/petermorn
Hope to see you there and take care/peter
