Putting The Magic Back In Rock With JOCKE BERG From HARDCORE SUPERSTAR

Share This:

ROM Sleaze rock doesn’t get any better than Swedish outfit Hardcore Superstar, who hit Australia later this month for their third tour in four years.

Since forcing their way into our lives with their debut album It’s Only Rock N’ Roll before the turn of the century, Hardcore Superstar have ruled the roost of sleaze, redefining the genre with their blend of thrash meets sleaze meets rock.

Their most recent album Abrakadabra introduced Hardcore Superstar to a new generation of music lovers, and now they plan to share that love with their fans Down Under.

Vocalist Jocke Berg joined HEAVY to discuss the run of shows, starting with the obvious question of what to expect.

“As I said to the other guy, and he asked me the same question, and I said if I give that away then it’s not a surprise,” he laughed. “I urge you people to buy tickets to the show instead of giving away the surprise right now. You want to see that live, the surprise. I can give away that it’s gonna be a hell of a lot of energy, of course, as always. It’s gonna be a party, so don’t drink too much before you come and see us because we drink when you’re there (laughs).”

In the full interview, Jocke talks more about the run of shows, his best memories of Australia, why they keep coming back, the early days of Hardcore Superstar and where the band fit in musically, the success of their debut album and how the band felt about it after recording, new music and more.

Unfortunately the line dropped out before we could finish all of the questions, but it’s an entertaining listen anyway!
