Refused Return From The Dead, Announce New Album

Dustin Rabin Photography, Refused, Dustin Rabin

In spite of past claims that the legendary Swedish hardcore band Refused were long since done, the band just released “Elektra,” a new single from their first new studio album, Freedom. The album is the band’s first in 17 years, and will hit store on June 30th via Epitaph Records.

The single, produced/co-written by Shellback (Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Pink), seems to pick up where The Shape of Punk To Come left off.

You can view the cover art and track listing for Freedom below, as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates:
