The spirit of high energy Rock’N’Roll is reborn in The Drippers. Fusing the 90’s wave of Scandinavian rock like Gluecifer, The Hellacopters and Turbonegro with the raw sound of classic bands like The Stooges, MC5 and Radio Birdman. Whether you wanna call The Drippers Garage or Action rock, one thing is sure: The band turns all dials to eleven. Screaming guitars, alcohol fueled sing along choruses and raw fucking energy is the pure essence of the band. Welcome to new wave of Swedish Action Rock. The Drippers has gained a reputation as a leading band in a classic genre that’s coming back to life. In 2018 the band released their debut EP “Motherfuckers Be Drippin’”. The EP was mixed by Tomas Skogsberg in Sunlight Studio, and distributed through Sound Pollution. The band has become a popular live act, sharing the bill with bands like Turbonegro, Supersuckers, Hank Von Hell, The Dwarves, The Baboon S The Dripper’s debut album Action Rock was recorded in Sunlight Studio and produced by legendary Tomas Skogsberg (who during the 90’s took The Hellacopters, Gluecifer, Backyard Babies, Entombed under his wings). The result is an eleven track testimonial that lead to a record deal with The Sign Records. The main single, „Gimme The Shakes“, quickly became a sensation in the Action Rock community.
The album was released on the 2nd of August 2019 to great critical acclaim with at thundering release party at eltturbojugendtage in Hamburg. Reviews have been outstanding and by the time of release, several distributors had already sold out their batch of records. Hellion Records in Brazil quickly bought a license to release the album to the South American market. The band also did a UK tour with The Hip Priests in November 2019, before landing big opening slots for acts like Hank Von Hell and Monster Magnet. Due to the Covid–19 pandemic all touring was cancelled, but the band instead wrote and recorded their second album Scandinavian Thunder. The album was once again produced, recorded and mixed by Tomas Skogsberg in Sunlight Studio. The album channels all the frustration and desillusion that was built up while society was put on hold. The menacing riffs and shitty sound is backed up by strong songwriting and catchy hooks. The band is now ready to release this lightning in a bottle upon the world. Get ready for some Scandinavian Thunder.
The Drippers consists of Viktor Skatt (bass, vocals), William Dickborn (guitars, vocals) and Niclas Kristoferson (drums.)
Stacy Crowne kommen aus Köln, Deutschland, und haben die Band 2014 gegründet. Die vier sind eindeutig vom Sound der skandinavischen Rockwelle um Bands wie The Hellacopters, Turbonegro und Gluecifer inspiriert, bedienen aber keine Klischees. Die Vielseitigkeit der Band zeigt sich in den zehn Songs auf ihrem Debütalbum „We Sound Electric“ (Savage Magic Records, USA), das im Oktober 2019 erschienen ist. Für dieses Album hat die Band den schwedischen Produzenten Ola Ersfjord engagiert, der bereits mit Bands wie Lucifer, Dead Lord und Primordial gearbeitet hat. Im Februar 2020 spielte die Band eine Show im weltberühmten Dollhut, Anaheim, USA, als Headliner der „Savage Magic Records Label Night“. Im Frühjahr 2022 tourte die Band eine Woche durch Spanien.
