Sverige to be Marie’s opening act

EMA Telstar has announced the opening act for Marie's summer tour concerts: Sverige. Sverige (which is "Sweden" in Swedish) is a rather unknown band, which released their debut album "Som landet ligger" last spring. The album was put together very quickly, as the band has only existed since last winter. Many of the band members are familiar from a group called Just D. Sverige consists of Peder Ernerot (guitar, vocals), Markus Ernerot (guitar, vocals), Gustave Lund (percussion), Johan Forsberg (vocals), Thomas Lindberg (bass guitar), Stefan Carlsson (drums), Ludde Widegren (steel guitar, mandolin) and Joakim Uddling (keyboards).

"I really like Sverige," says Marie in EMA's press release. "Especially their lyrics. I appreciate that they sing in Swedish. Musically, their music and my music are a good combination."
