Atlas Losing Grip

Average Rating:

Hometown: Lund (Sweden)


Atlas Losing Grip is a Swedish punk rock / melodic hardcore band formed in Lund in 2005. The band is fronted by Rodrigo Alfaro (Satanic Surfers, Venerea) whose well–known voice feels more sincere than ever. They have released a full length ('Shut the World Out') in 2008 and a MCD ('Watching the Horizon') in 2009, both receiving great reviews from every corner of the globe. They have toured all of over europe numerous times and supported Bad Religion on their Scandinavian tour in the summer of 2010.

The music can best be described as classic melodic punk rock with a diverse range of influences that takes the listener through shredding fast sections, catchy midtempo singalongs and heavier hardcore–ish stuff, all with political and personal lyrics, sung straight from the heart.

Atlas Losing Grip is an experienced, explosive live–band that must be seen on a stage.
