Degreed, the rock four-piece from Sweden, have released critically acclaimed music since the start of their career with the first album “Life, love, loss” in 2010 and have since gone from strength to strength with every album.
They have toured and gained fans all over the world and they are not stopping now. “Modern rock just dosen’t get any better than this” – Andrew Hawnt, Powerplay Magazine.
Degreed’s second album “We Don’t Belong” was released on the 2nd of September 2013 and that same month became Album of the month in Powerplay magazine.
The follow up “Dead But Not Forgotten” was released in 2015 and was also very well received by critics all over the world and the opening track and first video “The Scam” got featured in Classic Rock Magazine.
In 2016 the band teamed up with Hagenburg Management to reach new heights in their career and they released their self titled album ‘Degreed’ in August 2017. Following the release they toured Europe with H.E.A.T.
”Body of Work” was the first single for the follow up for ”Degreed” and was released during the second part of 2018 and was followed by a European tour with The Poodles. In the beginning of 2019 came the release of the bands brand new single “Ruins” which topped the Swedish iTunes charts. In November of 2019 the critically acclaimed album Lost Generation was released.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic the band wasn’t able to tour on the Lost Generation album. However they released the song “The World We Knew” summing the year 2020 which became the ”Track of the Week” at Classic Rock Magazine’s website a week after its release.
During the pandemic the band has had time to write and refine new music and in the beginning of 2021 they signed a deal with Frontiers Music Srl. A couple of months later the recordings of the upcoming album began which is set to be released early 2022.
”I can’t believe we’re about to release our sixth studio album. I am so proud of this band and I am very humbled that we are still around. And what could fit more perfect than to release this album with Frontiers? The leading company when it comes to melodic rock and hard rock! Our upcoming album will be just that…a more straightforward hard rock album with great melodies. Our ”old” fans will not be disappointed, and I’m sure that we will gain a lot of new ones as well with this one.” – Robin Eriksson
Degreed is back stronger than ever and with a great management and record label supporting them, they’ve never been more ready to take on the world.
