Biography of Millencolin

Millencolin

Scandinavian punk unit Millencolin formed in Örebro, Sweden in the late '80s. Inspired by the Southern California hardcore sound of bands like Operation Ivy, the Descendants and NOFX, vocalist/bassist Nikola and guitarists Erik and Mathias formed the first incarnation of Millencolin (a variation on the skateboarding maneuver dubbed Melancholy) as a Swedish-language group, but later began writing and singing in English; the addition of drummer Larzon in 1993 cemented their line-up, and they soon made their recording debut on the local label Burning Heart. After their first LP Life on a Plate appeared in 1995, Millencolin was signed by the American indie label Epitaph, which reissued the album for U.S. distribution; their sophomore effort For Monkeys followed in 1997, and a year later they returned with Same Old Tunes. Millencolin's fourth LP, Pennybridge Pioneers, appeared in early 2000. No Cigar was released in spring 2001.
