Swedish death thrashers Bleeding Utopia have added a new singer!

Swedish death thrashers Bleeding Utopia are very pleased to announce the addition of Filip Fougstedt to the bands line up, replacing long time singer David Ahlen.

As the band prepared to take the new album out across Europe, long time singer David Ahlen left the band to pursue other ambitions.

Following a long process sourcing a new singer the search led to 29 year old Filip Fougstedt from Karlstad in Sweden, who has also performed with the band Strykjärn. Commenting on joining the band, Filip comments:

First of, I want to express how flattered and honored I am to be granted this opportunity. I’ve known the guys from Bleeding Utopia for about 4 months now. And I certainly must say that “Birds of a feather flock together”.

I first heard of Bleeding Utopia when I accidentally stumbled upon them at a music festival in 2018. And was immediately stunned by how heavy but yet melodic their music was. So I decided to start following them on social media and about a year later I saw a post from them that caught my eye. They were looking for a new vocalist! They sent over a couple of songs for me to record some audition tracks over and the rest is history.

So with that said I am really looking forward to see you guys on the road!

About Valentine

As a huge fan of pop-punk, easycore and punk-rock music since forever, I officially started in 2011 by doing volunteer promotion for two local bands. In parallel, I also wrote articles for other webzines, which allowed me to understand what a media wants to receive! I've finally created my own webzine in 2015. Since then, I've continued in this direction in order to help bands and labels develop their visibility and notoriety worldwide.
