Refused’s Dennis Lyxzén: “We Have A New Record That’s Almost Done”

During a recent interview with Daniel P. Carter on the “Someone Who Isn’t Me” podcast, Dennis Lyxzén talked a bit about Refused’s new album. The singer said the effort is “almost done” and that he thinks it is “the record that people wanted [the band] to do last time.”

Lyxzén said the following:

“We have a new record that’s almost done—not quite. It’s been one of those, in typical Refused fashion, it’s just been going on for a long time and no one’s enjoying the process of making the record and it’s been kind of grueling. But we’re almost at the finishing line, which feels great. It feels like it’s gonna be a really fantastic record.”

He also added:

“I think this is the record that people wanted us to do last time. But I think it’s good that we did “Freedom” last time, cause it kind of levels the playing field… It’s not like we’re gonna do ‘The Shape Of Punk To Come 2’—’cause that’s not it. But I think that the people who love ‘Shape’ will be like ‘Oh yeah, this makes a little bit more sense,’ because we just had to level the playing field a little bit for ourselves. Because Refused was an entity that did not belong to us for a very long time.

I mean I was the guy—I was touring—and I saw all this Refused stuff and I was like ‘that’s so crazy.’ Like that’s not me, it doesn’t belong to me. I think “Freedom” was just reclaiming the band and reclaiming these ideas. And now we’re just a bit more comfortable and a bit more relaxed and I think we know what type of band we are. And I think it’s gonna show on this new record, I think people are gonna listen to it and be like ‘Ohhh, alright. I get it.’”
