22’s Ep release and Tour dates

22 are an eclectic and experimental rock four-piece from Norway. Born from the ashes of Norwegian Grammy Award winning band Gåte, the group is the new creative endeavor and brainchild of guitarist Magnus Børmark. This unique band will release their self-produced, heavy-edged and euphoric debut UK EP ‘Plastik’ on Best Before Records (Sharks, Johnny Foreigner, Dananananaykroyd) on July 4th and will make their first UK appearance at this year’s ‘The Great Escape’ and ‘Liverpool Sound City’ festivals. The EP was mixed by acclaimed US producer, Machine (Lamb of God, Fall Out Boy) and the video for first single ‘Plastik’ was cut by Stephen Agnew (White Lies, The Vaccines, Dananananaykroyd).

Musically, 22 play a heavy-edged and euphoric mix of high-end, dramatic pop and technically expansive rock. It’s the mathematical and downright progressive insanity of the Mars Volta, Blood Brothers and Refused with a keen pop sensibility and strong desire for experimentation a la Muse, Queen or Radiohead. “We are conveying a new kind of energy through our music, “ states Magnus cryptically. “Our inspiration comes from experiments and experiences with polyphasic sleep, astral projection, breathing and channeling.”
