Lo and behold; 2019 is the 30th anniversary of Turbonegro, who played their first ever show in Copenhagen, Denmark, February 1989!
It’s been over seven years now since the word got out that the Titans from The Big O* (as in Oslo, Norway) were re-resurrected for a second time since their grimy late 80´s beginnings. «Hell, not even Jesus could do THAT!» music lovers worldwide were heard to shriek.
Back in the saddle, the band have crisscrossed the globe delighting fans old and new, packing ’em in from LA to Ålesund, Melbourne to Manchester and all points in between.
November 2015 heralded the unveiling of not only the first new music since 2012’s Sexual Harassment but a new member for the group! Hot For Nietzsche found our boys on full throttle, staring the void right in the face and raising a glass to its honour. The HFN single release show in Oslo saw the stage debut of the newest edition to the denim recruits: Keyboard Wizard Crown Prince Haakon-Marius, a hugely invaluable addition to the line-up, according to Guitar Ubermensch Euroboy
Well, lightning does strike twice, because May 2016 saw ANOTHER new single! Just in time for final exams, TURBONEGRO unleashed Special Education to the unsuspecting public.
And so finally, in the wake of the legendary blizzards of the Scandinavian Winter of 2017, the savvy six gathered in the studio in Oslo to embark on the venture that is now about to be revealed to the world as the ROCKNROLL MACHINE, their ninth studio album to date.
Turbonegro´s ninth studio album ”ROCKNROLL MACHINE” was released February 2nd 2018, almost to the day 20 years after the release of their classic ”Apocalypse Dudes” album, and was followed by sold out European and US club tours, and a bunch of festival performances throughout the year. 2019 will see the band and the amazing Turbojugend fanclub celebrating the 30 years anniversary to the full, including a first time ever South-American tour.
