The spirit of high energy Rock 'N Roll is reborn with The Drippers, fusing the 90's wave of Scandinavian rock with bands like Gluecifer, The Hellacopters and Turbonegro with the raw sound of classic bands like The Stooges, MC5 and Radio Birdman. Wether you wanna call The Drippers Garage or Action rock, one thing is sure: the band turns all dials to eleven. Screaming guitars, alcohol fueled sing-along choruses and raw fucking power is the pure essence of the band. Welcome to the new wave of Swedish Action Rock. The Drippers quickly gained a reputation of being an explosive live band in a classic genre that's coming back to life. During both 2017 and 2018, the band's been hand picked to play prominent after parties to The Hellacopters' gigs at Liseberg (Göteborg) and Gröna Lund (Stockholm). The band's become a popular live act, sharing the stage with bands like Turbonegro, Supersuckers, The Dwarves, The Baboon Show, Robert Pehrsson's Humbucker, Scumbag Millionaire, Grindhouse, Deadheads, Hard Action, Märvel and Night. 
 The band's debut album "Action Rock" was recorded during the second half of 2018 in Sunlight Studio. Produced by legendary Tomas Skogsberg, who during the 90's took The Hellacopters, Gluecifer, Backyard Babies, New Bomb Turks, Entombed etc. under his wings. The result is an eleven track testimonial that lead to a record deal with The Sign Records.

From the early Motorhead sound of White Light and Bottled Blues to the rockabilly themes of Backbeat and the snarling punk of Finskt Blod Action Rock gets the blood pumping with both it's brevity and intensity. This is supercharged rock n roll

In short, The Drippers, despite working in some of the most heavily-populated waters in rock n'roll, have managed to create an incendiary noise that's as completely fresh in outlook as it is old-fashioned in structure.
