Universal Records will Re-Issue Club 8's 1998-2003 albums

Sweden's Club 8 was formed in 1995 by Karolina Komstedt and Johan Angergård. They made simple bedroom recordings of their three first songs and sent them to their ten favorite record labels. The response was just as immediate as it was good with half of the labels wanting to release the band's music. Club 8’s first six albums originate from Swedish melancholy, classic English guitar pop and Brazilian sounds. They are commonly recognized for their personal blend of melancholic, dreamy and irresistibly catchy style of pop and have been a forerunner for bands like Camera Obscura, jj, and Kings of Convenience.

Universal Records is proud to announce the re-issue of Club 8's albums released between 1998 and 2003.

Club 8 "The Friend I Once Had" (originally released in 1998) + 6 bonus tracks
Club 8 "Club 8" (originally released in 2001) + 2 bonus tracks
Club 8 "Spring Came, Rain Fell" (originally released in 2002) + 5 bonus tracks
Club 8 "Strangely Beautiful" (originally released in 2003) + 5 bonus tracks

Watch out for Club 8's newest album "The People's Record" to be released in May. Still available is their 2007's album "The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Dreaming".
