Degreed is a Stockholm based Melodic Hardrock band formed in the beginning of 2005.
After many years of touring, gaining credabillity and fans the band released their critically acclaimed debut album ”life,love,loss”
”Treat and H.E.A.T are not alone my dear friends, if the opening track 'B.O.D' or the excellent 'Captured by the Moment' wont get you knocked out, I dont know what will!” - Kaj Roth, Melodic.net (4/5 stars, Oct. 2010)
"..this first DEGREED album could well become THE album of the year!” - Gabor, MyGlobalMind.com (9/10 stars, Nov. 2010)
The band has also released a limited edition issue of their album ”life,love,loss”
”..if these are the bands other labels are passing on i suggest they need better A&R guys. 'Life,Love,Loss' is not the sortof album anyone should overlook.”
Now the band has once again teamed up with producer/songwriter Erik Lidbom (the first degreed album, Arashi, Kat- Tun, E.X.I.L.E, Masterplan to name a few) to record the second album, which they plan to release during the spring of 2013 throughout the world on Spectra Records (USA/Canada)
Erik Lidbom has also written a few songs for the album, amongst them two together with multiplatinum and Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter Bill Champlin (former singer of Chicago, songwriter for Earth, Wind and Fire etc.). Bill Champlin sang on the Chicago nr.1 hit "Look Away" as well as singles "You're Not Alone" and "Hard Habit to Break". Now Bill will make another mark in history by singing a few lines on the new degreed album. The album will also feature a song with the Japanese band Godbrother.
The band just got back from a very successful and critically acclaimed tour in the UK along with the band VEGA and are more hungry and excited than ever to tour!
It took 5 years of hard work to even get noticed and a bunch of shameful proposals to get where they are today but these 5 guys know how hard you have to work to get what you want and they wont stop until they get just that, what they want.
