Swedish pop-punk band For The Legion was formed in 2012 as a rebirth of previous projects, composed of Ed Lindgren (vocals/guitar), Johan Låås (guitar), Marcus Birgersson (bass) and Hjalle Lindgren (drums). The four childhood friends from the island of Ekerö outside Stockholm started in early ages to form punk rock bands influenced by bands like Blink-182, Green Day and swedish music heroes Millencolin.
Their debut EP Flamboyant was released 2013, now influenced by more modern pop-punk band such as Four Year Strong, Me vs Hero and Set Your Goals.
The band kept busy and released another EP the following year; Super Smash. The title track was completed with the shooting of a superhero themed music video, a tribute to video gaming and comic book heroes.
In 2016, For The Legion followed up with Regular Terrestrials, a four-track fan favourite recorded at MFG Studios in Stockholm. It was released on Christmas Day along with the single Hello Out There.
In 2018 For The Legion entered the studio once again with Alex Holmberg at MFG Studios. Their third album Down The Path displays a more mature sound with themes such as global warming and parenthood. “The album is about personal change but also witnessing how the world is changing around us. We have put in a lot of work, sweat and are confident that this is our best work yet, as well as the most personal”, says the band.
