OPETH Keyboardist's MOJOBONE To Play First Show In Seven Years

MOJOBONE, the project consisting of OPETH's Per Wiberg on lead vocals and guitars and Marcus Källström (SKY HIGH, STONECAKE) on drums, will perform tonight (Wednesday, September 15) at Stockholm, Sweden's Göta Källare in Medborgarplatsen. The band will be joined by OPETH's lead guitarist Fredrik Åkesson and Thomas Thorberg (PLANKTON) on bass guitar. MOJOBONE will be supporting heavy blues trio KAMCHATKA. Doors open around 9 p.m.

MOJOBONE's third album, "Cowboy Mode", was released in June via Wiberg's own label, Hippodome Music. According to a press release, the CD "takes you on a consciousness expanding experience to match no others. Each song uniquely delves into every level of the essence of life. The good. The bad. The ugly. Right from the start, 'Over the Hill' hooks the listener with its heavy, infectious rhythms. With its robust chorus and alluring pace, 'The Peacemakers' gratifies the ears with every step. The doom blues charge of the album’s title track adds a new twist to your senses. A journey to the powerful climax of '25 Years' will leave you breathless as you roll into 'Celebrate Armageddon', taking your listening pleasure on a rollercoaster ride of intensity. 'Cowboy Mode' features several musically inclined friends of Wiberg's who jumped at the chance to lend their own special touch of genius. For example, a roaring sax solo in the epic 'End of Music, End of
Story' and dynamic vocal lines throughout, further the appeal of diversity through groovin' symmetry."
