The catchy songs of the Swedish group Mando Diao have burned their way into the hearts of their countless fans.
Mando Diao – Swedish Rock at its Best
The guys from Sweden have started their triumphal procession on the stages of this world already in 1999. The rock band is composed of Björn Dixgård, Patrik Heikinpieti, Daniel Haglund, Carl-Johan Fogelklou, and Jens Siverstedt. However, the line-up has changed from time to time over the years, with Gustaf Norén, Samuel Giers, and Mats Björke joining and others leaving the rock group.
Only frontman Björn Dixgård and bassist Carl-Johan Fogelklou have been with the band from the beginning and still are. Their steep career starts in the clubs and bars in Sweden and continues internationally after their first record deal. Tommy Gärdh, a presenter on MTV, is responsible for their contract with the record company EMI and from then on becomes the manager of Mando Diao.
Mando Diao Hits
In 2002, the band released their debut album “Bring ‘Em In”, from which they released the Mando Diao songs “Motown Blood”, “Mr. Moon” and “The Band” as singles. Their single “Sheepdog” also becomes extremely successful. The melodies inspired by the 60s and 70s coupled with the inimitable voice of Björn Dixgård let the Swedish rock group climb the career ladder.
Their songs are able to enter the Swedish charts with great success. In 2003, they also rise to international prominence when the mobile phone company E-Plus uses their hit “Lady” for their commercial. A year later, the busy guys release their next studio album “Hurricane Bar”, from which they release the four hits “Clean Town”, “God Knows”, “Down in the Past” and “You Can’t Steal my Love” and storm the German and British charts. In 2007, the album “Ode to Ochrasy” with the single “Long before Rock ‘n’ Roll” and the studio album “Never Seen the Light of Day” with the releases “If I Don’t live Today, Then I might be here Tomorrow”.
The Swedish Boys release one album and single after another, conquering the international charts. They also perform on their concerts on the stages of this world and are very successful especially in Germany, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland and Japan. In 2009 the album “Give me Fire!” is released and the singles “Dance with Somebody”, “Gloria”, “Mean Street” and “Nothing without you” are released.
In 2010 the MTV Unplugged album “Down in the Past” is released and in 2012 the Swedish influenced album “Infruset” with the two songs “Strövtåg i hembygden” and “En sångarsaga”. In 2014 follows the album “Ælita” with “Black Saturday” and 2020 “Långsamt”. Especially their hit “Dance with Somebody” has gone down in the success story of the Swedish rock band.
