The Norwegian rock band are releasing their second full length album “Ain’t No Shame”, which contains 10 high soaring, hook heavy songs with tons of energy. The whole record has a classic rock tinge to it that gives it a classical vibe; powerful and punchy.
Friendship are a groovy power trio from Oslo, Norway. The band was formed in 2010 and consists today of Fredrik Skalstad on drums and vocals, Sander Eriksen Nordahl on guitar and Martin Morland on bass. The gel that binds the trio is their years of experience and discipline to their craft as musicians. As a result, Friendship have forged a sound that is tight, groovy, dynamic and adventurous; a sound that is unmistakeably Friendship.
Friendship's music is based on rock, with influences from blues, groove and psychedelic music from the late 60s, early 70s. Friendship is a live band, letting the energy of the moment inspire jams on stage. In these moments, the audience get a real feel on the level of craftsmanship in the band.
Witness elements of funky brass, violin and a lovely psychedelic organ here. This is great music for fans of Jimi Hendrix, Grand Funk, Cream, Rory Gallagher, Sly or Earth Wind and Fire. Friendship is a hard working rock band with four feet in the old music and two in the modern.
Friendship released its debut in 2011, a limited orange hand numbered 7" single and their first self-titled full length album followed in 2014 receiving an extremely positive embrace from the European underground rock scene.
Four years later and the band prepare to release “Ain’t No Shame” their highly anticipated follow up album, recorded and mixed at Studio Paradiso with Christian Engfelt (Big Bang, Cato Salsa Experience). “Ain’t No Shame” is a more mature record than their debut, from the opening riff you can feel the time, love and passion that has gone into creating this beautiful record. Fans of Friendship will not be disappointed, and those new to the Friendship train will enjoy the ride!
The band features ex-members of EXPLODING RUBBER BAND!
