Swedish high-energy rock and rollers THE HELLACOPTERS will release a new studio album, “Eyes Of Oblivion”, on April 1, 2022 via Nuclear Blast.

THE HELLACOPTERS were formed in 1994 by ENTOMBED drummer Andersson and BACKYARD BABIES guitarist Dregen.
THE HELLACOPTERS‘ second album, 1997’s “Payin’ The Dues”, was the band’s last studio effort to feature Dregen before his departure to focus full-time on BACKYARD BABIES.
In October 2007, THE HELLACOPTERS announced that they would be breaking up after the release of their seventh full-length album, “Head Off”, a collection of cover songs. Eight years later, the band reunited, initially for an exclusive performance at the Sweden Rock Festival to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their debut album, “Supershitty To The Max!”
Robert “Strängen” Dahlqvist, who played guitar for THE HELLACOPTERS for nearly a decade, died in February 2017 at the age of 40.
Dahlqvist was a member of THE HELLACOPTERS from 1999 until the group disbanded in 2008.
THE HELLACOPTERS achieved two gold certifications, won the Swedish Grammy equivalent and a Kerrang! award, and have amassed 100 million streams to date.
