Liv Jagrell has been in the spotlight in the last few months. Her reunion with Sister Sin has brought her to the stages of the main festival across Europe this summer and, earlier, the single “The Process” served as an appetiser for the upcoming album of her own band Liv Sin. Now, it is time for a second Liv Sin digital single: “King of Fools”.
“This song is the first song we wrote for the new album, back in 2020 when we all realised that it would take a bit before the live scene would return”, Liv Jagrell comments about “King of Fools”. “I had some idea of releasing a single here and there, but we decided to write a whole record instead”.
“For the lyrics, this was one of those times when I got upset about something and it turned out as lyrics”, the singer starts, when asked about the lyrical part of the single. “I think it was in some kind of metal/rock forum where somebody posted how he thought that rock music shouldn’t try to be political or share any opinions, it should just be entertaining and nice to drink beer too, and that definitely pulled my trigger because I feel that as I artist I’ve been given a strong voice and people do listen. I believe it is an obligation to use that voice to try to make the world a little bit better, and I will continue to write about things I feel we need to change or that are fucked up in this world”, Jagrell states.
“King of Fools” will be released as a digital single and lyric video via Mighty Music on September 2nd, 2022. A new Liv Sin album is expected to be released in 2023. The band’s current line-up is Per Bjevoluk (drums), Patrick Ankermark (guitar), Liv Jagrell (vocals), Daniel Skoglund (bass) and Jay Matharu (lead guitar).
