Sweden’s most promising new rock band, The Gems, gear up for the release of their highly anticipated debut album “Phoenix”, out this
Friday, January 26, 2024 via Napalm Records, by revealing the fifth single “Fruits Of My Labor”. Check the song’s lyric video below.
The trio consisting of three ex-Thundermother members, Guernica Mancini, Emlee Johansson and Mona “Demona” Lindgren, caught the attention of the music industry even before they had a name, and started playing live internationally when they only had one standalone single out, already receiving significant airplay chart success in Germany.
The members of The Gems hit #6 on the Official German Album Charts twice with their previous band and performed at many huge international festivals such as Wacken, Sweden Rock and Alcatraz, as well as provided tour support for the iconic rock band Scorpions.
With their debut album “Phoenix”, the Swedish outfit rise from the ashes, ready to take over the rock scene.
The trio on “Fruits Of My Labor”: “This song is about overcoming and appreciating the struggles on the way to making your dreams come true”.
The Gems on Phoenix: “Phoenix marks the beginning, the rise of The Gems This album takes you on a journey through one of our toughest times. Through this creative process we were able to really dig deep and let go of a lot of emotional baggage, and find true happiness in music again. The new found freedom our band has been given us shines through on this album. We couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve accomplished, and the true Rock n Roll Sisterhood and community we’ve built through these few months of our existence.
The band adds: “Phoenix is the perfect album for anyone going through a tough time, having the rug pulled out under you and somehow finding the strength to rebuild. You’ll get the full range of emotions, masterfully produced by our dear friend Johan Randén, who we also wrote some of the songs with. We hope people will love Phoenix and really enjoy the epic ride this album will take you on.”
