Band Name: Armless Alice
Members: Fredrik Thrysoe, Hampus Severinus, Mikael Hagman.
Armless Alice is a Swedish industrial rock band, formed in Gävle in 2008 by their frontman Fredrik Thrysoe. Since their formation they have released an EP, 'Postmortem Superstars', through Sliptrick Records and
are now back with their first full-length album, 'In Shapes', in January 25th 2017.
Mixing loud industrial rock with intimate and hushed piano ballads while adding lo-fi rock to the mix.
The shows are filled with theatrical elements, be it old television sets spread around the stage to the band changing their looks and stage clothes for every event.
I started the this band because I was tired of all the other local artists that I used to perform with as a drummer. Nobody had any focus or discipline so I started my own. We started out as a horror punk band but later grew more industrial with time because I got tired of all the horror stuff. I'm the only member that's been in the band since the formation and I also write our music.
IVM: How would you describe your sound/style, and how did you arrive at it?
I think we're an odd mix of industrial rock with some lo-fi rock thrown in. Quite hard to define.
It all comes from me listening to heavy industrial music while I'm a big fan of artists like Lisa Germano.
IVM: Who and what are your primary influences both musical and non-musical?
Musical influences - Nine Inch Nails, Lisa Germano, David Bowie, Marilyn Manson.
Non-musical influences - David Lynch.
IVM: Do you perform live and if so where can we see you perform in the near future?
We're planning some shows at the moment. New shows will be announced shortly through armlessalice.net
IVM: What is your current release and where is it available from?
'In Shapes' is available through Spotify, iTunes & Amazon.
Promoting the album by playing shows all around Sweden, hopefully we'll reach new areas with time.
IVM: Finally, is there anything that you would like to add?
