Frontiers Music Srl is excited to announce AMMUNITION, the new band from Norwegian singer Åge Sten Nilsen (ex WIG WAM), who will release the self-titled album out on January 26th, 2018. Ammunition was founded in 2014 by the songwriting duo Age Sten Nilsen and the multi-talented Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse (Sweden), W.E.T music, Nordic Union). They released their stellar debut album “Shanghaied” in 2015 on their own label. Teaming up with former TNT and Jack In The Box bassist Victor Cito, keysman Lasse Finbråten (Circus Maximus), skinsman Magnus Ulfstedt (Eclipse), and the exceptional guitar player Jon Pettersen, Ammunition has made a name for themselves as an incredible live act.
Åge Sten Nilsen states: “We formed this band to enjoy making the music we love and have a real good time. And I really think this album reflects just that! It was fun and easy to write and record…and it’s simply enjoyable to listen to. As a rock producer Erik Mårtensson has proven that he’s one of the best around for many years. But I think on this album he has reached an even higher level…. If you’re into physics you’d love to be on Einstein’s team. I’m into rock music, and I’m on Erik’s team… pretty much the same!”
The first taste of music from this self-titled album was released earlier in 2017. “Wrecking Crew” (written by Nilsen and Mårtensson) landed on top of the Norwegian charts, taking AMMUNITION to the Norwegian Eurovision Song Contest grand finale where they reached an astonishing second place. The full length, original version of the song will be included on the forthcoming album, produced and mixed by the band’s guitar player and co-writer, Erik Mårtensson.
Frontiers Music srl is premiering the first song and video from the album now, “Freedom Finder”. Check it out below and let us know what you think!
