Rumour has it that the original line-up of THE HELLACOPTERS, featuring guitarists Nicke Andersson and Dregen, will reunite to play the Sweden Rock festival next year.
The reunion will mark the 20th Anniversary of the band’s Swedish Grammy-winning debut album Supershitty To The Max. The album will also be getting the deluxe reissue treatment to coincide.
Sweden Rock takes place in Solvesborg from 8-11 June.
The Hellacopters originally came together in 1994 when BACKYARD BABIES guitarist Dregen hooked up with Andersson, at that time drumming for ENTOMBED. Dregen left after two albums, subsequently playing with MICHAEL MONROE, while the Hellacopters continued for another ten years.
Both musicians have been active this year, Dregen rejoining Backyard Babies’ for the comeback album Four By Four, and Andersson issuing a new album, Honk Machine, with IMPERIAL STATE ELECTRIC.

UK SUBS have announced a Pledgemusic campaign to fund the release of their final official album.
As fans will be aware, the band’s albums have always been titled in alphabetical order, beginning with Another Kind Of Blues in 1979, followed by Brand New Age, Crash Course, Diminished Responsibility and so on and so forth. They’ve now reached the letter Z. While they maintain that they’re not splitting up, and may well release various singles and EPs in future, Ziezo will be their final studio album.
The band have been signed to various labels over the years, most recently with Captain Oi, but this time around they’ve chosen to keep it in the family and get their fans involved. Check out their Pledgemusic page for details how.
