Pressure premiers their first Christmas song “Julstress” on December 11th

Ho! Ho! Ho! It’s Christmas and Swedish rockers Pressure have penned their first Christmas song! “Julstress” sees its release 11th December, 2020 and this is one Christmas song that will stand out from the crowd!

From the opening riff you’ll be rocking out for the full 2.35 and you’ll never think of “Jingle Bells” in the same way every again! The track may well be delivered with driving guitar riffs and a sometimes growling bass vocal but it still manages to touch on the sensitive issue of how some people struggle with the pressure of the festivities.

The guys wrote the track as a distraction whilst getting their heads down writing new material that will see the light of day in 2020. There will be a full video supporting the release.

Who are Pressure I hear you ask? Well if you had to tag them with a genre the one that fits best is a “melodic rock” but they’re so much more than that. Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden and with vocalist Olof Jönsson you can always guarantee soaring, athletic and committed vocals. Together with a twin guitar sound coming from songwriter and lead guitarist Simon “Siirpo” Forsell and Emil Salling. Their work often focuses and embraces the pressures felt from everyday existence. Their lyrics ably demonstrating that there are two sides to every story – the good and the bad. Every song has a double meaning and they truly see music as a tool to handle the different pressures thrown at us from the modern world.

The band began their journey together in 2018, and since then they’ve worked tirelessly developing their sound and live performance, their aim? To make memories with their fans and to an epic musical soundtrack.

A quote that can summarize their lyrics is: “How can you tell a story about life if you haven’t dared to live life to its fullest!”

Pressure is all about every story, every moment, every Pressure!
