Remember Swedish bands BEFORE the current onslaught of talent? Before the rip-roaring and raucous guitar attacks of The Hives, Division Of Laura Lee, Soundtrack Of Our Lives and Sahara Hotnights. there were nicer, softer things like The Cardigans. Well, it seems like our old friends are looking to jump head-first into 2003, as for their new album they have enlisted the help of the frontmen for a number of the new Swedish armada. Pelle Almqvist of The Hives, Soundtrack’s Ebbot Lundberg and The Hellacopters’ Nick Royale all feature on the band’s new record. The first single, “For What It’s Worth,” will drop on February 10, while the album, entitled Long Gone Before Daylight is due to hit shelves overseas on March 24.
