“We’re stoked to get these songs out for you to hear. I think we’ve made a massive album in terms of the songs, but also in terms of sound. It’s been a few months of hard work, but looking back at it now, while listening to the result, it’s been well worth it. I can’t wait to hear what you guys think of this one!” says drummer Mats Eriksson.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the band wasn’t able to tour on the heels of the release of their 2019 album “Lost Generation”, so they set out to begin work on their sixth studio album, “Are You Ready”during the forced downtime. The record showcased a more straightforward and focused direction for the band’s sound, while still being extremely melodic and catchy. Indeed, the 2022 album showed that degreed was back stronger than ever. Taking the inspiration from the process of creating their last studio album, the new album, “Public Address” sees degreed delivering hands-down the strongest album of their already impressive recorded output.

Over the course of their next five studio albums, the band has gone from strength to strength with every release, touring and gaining fans all over the world and they have no plans on stopping now. degreed’s sound mixes the classic melodic and hard rock sounds with more contemporary influences offering the fans a very personal, fresh and exciting mix of great rock music.

You can also check out the previous video for the song “Big Plans”. Pay atention to the Robin Eriksson’s (singer, bassist) necklace. The necklace strongly resembles the symbol that the legendary Finnish band HIM had on their album ‘Love Metal’ in 2003. It looks like it’s some kind of cool tribute to Ville and his crew.
