Viagra Boys is an unapologetically raw sextet comprised of classically trained jazz musicians, karaoke loving tattoo artists and seasoned hardcore scene veterans, churning out spastic, pulsating sounds from the sub levels of contemporary rock music. The band started in 2016 and has since made their way from the Stockholm underground scene, to being the only Swedish act booked for American giant festival Coachella in 2020. With over 180 live shows in support of their latest release ‘Street Worms’ (2018), and with several Grammy nominations and an Impala Award in the bag, Viagra Boys are currently working on new music, while their songs keep shaking the world, not the least through the latest Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater video game soundtrack.
By Viagra Boys’ side stands independent label YEAR0001- A hybrid music company acting as a creative platform for recording artists, offering an independent, artist friendly and transparent mindset. YEAR0001’s roster currently includes; YUNG LEAN, Nadia Tehran and Bladee plus producers GUD and whitearmor.
