Upcoming action in 2017

Yes, we're still breathing...

Summer, if that's what you call three months of rain and gray skies, is over and we managed to tour the Iberian Peninsula, support Poison Idea and Black Breath as well as we found ourselves a new singer for the band after Anders decided to walk a different path after 10 years. We all share some fantastic memories from the years past and he will be missed indeed.

Luckily, we have one last show to do together! Saturday December 17 he will join us for some classic Fredag den 13:e songs at Skjul46 in Gothenburg, when we celebrate 10 years as a band. 2006-2016. Joining us on stage will also Skägget, our old bass player, and our drummer Johannes from the first s/t 7". Other bands playing that night will be Painted Wolves, Dissober, Allvaret, Highrider and GUST. Don't forget to fill out this form before 17.00 on the 17:th! Otherwise you won't get in!

We havn't been super busy to this date, but we havn't been off either. SO:
New T-shirt print by The None Seeing Eye Artworks & Animations coming up soon
Split 7" with G's other band Painted Wolves coming up in April 2017
AAAAND we'll be back with Fred from Fvck Life Studios to record our fourth album in January. The songs written this far are all dynamite so expect nothing else than a killer!

When the recording is done, Peppe will stay home for a while spending time with his baby boy. But Fredag den 13:e will lend Johan Meiton from Gothenburg punk band Gamla Pengar on bass for a tour through Europe April 13-23. We will among other shows play the Kubuz Festival i Schweiz, with bands like The Arson Project and Halshug. More on this later on.

Cheers / F:13

Thanks and goodbye!

Ok. I´m not in the band anymore. I have no longer the time or spirit to be as dedicated as I used to be and I´m not really into doing things half-hearted.  Therefore I believe this is for the best, both for me and for the band.

Fredag den 13:e has been a huge part of my life for nearly ten years and some of my best friends, who I love, are in the band. D.I.Y.-premisses have taken us to places and people, which I never would have seen or met without the band. For those experiences I´m eternally thankful.

During the years we have also developed a sound that I´m very proud of. The core has always been driven d-beat, but our influences very various. Along with that we have, at least in my opinion, always managed to put our own edge to it.

I still feel a strong urge to put my words into music, so we´ll see what the future brings. However, thanks for the support through the years and keep your resistance loud and alive!
