Here is our new album… says Pelle
Pelle Alsing, Roxette’s drummer, has good news for you. After many years of having been in the studio, his band “Down Harrison” has finally released their first album and he really wants you to know about it. So we caught up for a small chat today.
That’s true! I can’t get enough of touring!! The music we write is more like Americana, with a touch of pop and country.
Tommy Cassemar is playing the bass and some other instruments. Tommy played the bass on Roxette’s Pearls of Passion! Do you remember him? Jesper Willaume, lead vocals and guitar and Mikael Wedberg on keyboards, guitars and vocals! We also have Ola Gustafsson as an additional guitar player! He plays slide guitar, pedal steel and some other stuff.
It’s the same band and project! Tommy, Jonas Isacsson and I started this band together with Jesper. Jonas quit a couple of years ago and we replaced him with Mikael Wedberg.
Yes, we were all involved in the compositions and the arrangements.
As I said, we work everything out together! I don’t think you can figure out what is especially me if you’re not a drummer. The music we do is the kind of music I’ve always been listening to.
We started to record the new album 3 weeks ago, so hopefully it will be released at the end of 2015!
“Down Harrison” was released March 28, 2015.
