Official press release: Razor & Tie is thrilled to announce the addition of the new Swedish alt-rock band INVSN (pronounced in-vey-zhuh-n) to its worldwide label roster (excluding Scandinavia). INVSN was formed by Dennis Lyxzén (Refused, The International Noise Conspiracy) along with musicians Andre Sandström (DS-13), Sara Almgren (The International Noise Conspiracy), Richard Österman, and Anders Stenberg (Lykke Li, Deportees). The band will release their debut U.S. album this Fall. The album was tracked at Studio Ingrid in Stockholm, (formerly known as Polar Studios) and is currently being mixed by Nick Launay (Arcade Fire, PiL, Nick Cave, Kate Bush) and Jacob Hansen (Volbeat). Listen to the first track off the album "Down In The Shadows" now at Rolling Stone here: Razor & Tie Head of A&R Pete Giberga comments, "We are so excited to have INVSN as a part of our growing Razor & Tie family. They are a young band of seasoned and influential artists, led by Dennis Lyxzen, who has had such an extraordinary impact on rock music for the last several years. I have been aware of Dennis for many years and have always wanted the opportunity to work with him. The first time I heard INVSN, I knew I had to be a part of helping him develop the next step in his career." INVSN has released music in Sweden and will make their U.S. (English language) debut in 2013. Dennis Lyxzén did a world tour with The Bloody Beetroots in 2011 and with the Refused in 2012. The band will tour the U.S. this Fall in support of their new album.
