Refused Play Live For The First Time In 14 Years

The Refused played a show last night in Umea, Sweden. The crowd was small and apparently it was a 'secret' show. Regardless, it's awesome to see them back with tons of energy. They will play Coachella in April and then some select shows in the States before returning for a tour of Europe. Just as a side note on the video for "Everlasting" here is the translation for what he says before the song starts:
This is unbelievably sweaty..any objections?
Guy in crowd: "PLAY HARDCORE!"
Haha. I like that one. "play hardcore", this is how it is. We're not a fucking jukebox, even if that's easy to believe, in regards to what we're doing.
We thought we'd play a few songs, some nostalgia, but we'll play the set; this is what people in USA will pay millions for, almost for free
We were going to close with Tannhäuser, which is a kind of pretentious song, but since we're among friends, we'll play Everlasting.
