‘In A Dark Heart We Trust’ is OUT NOW on Xing Record Label. The second “Story Metal” album from Pressure is about the ordinary relationships that we all have to live with, endure and cherish through all of our existence. Every relationship can be hard to handle but it can also be, almost perfect happiness! 

We all long for love that is unconditional, a state of being all our own. We strive to understand who we are, the face behind the masquerade we’ve always shown. We long to be ourselves, but being wanted is a stronger drug. We pretend in order to be liked, tucked into our façade so snug. There comes a time we must awaken and shake off the dust. It’s time we listened to our spirit, ‘In A Dark Heart We Trust’. 

Who is Pressure I hear you ask? Well, if you had to tag them with a genre, the one that fits best is ‘melodic rock’ but they are so much more than that. Hailing from Stockholm, Sweden and with vocalists Olof Jönsson and Olli Violet you can always guarantee soaring, athletic and committed vocals. Together with a twin guitar sound coming from songwriter and lead guitarist Simon “Siirpo” Forsell and Emil Salling. Their work often focuses and embraces the pressures felt from everyday existence. Their lyrics always demonstrate that there are two sides to every story – the good and the bad. Every song has a double meaning, and they truly see music as a tool to handle the different pressures thrown at us from the modern world. 

The band began their journey together in 2018, and since then they’ve worked tirelessly developing their sound and live performance. Their aim? To make memories with their fans and to create epic musical soundtracks. A quote that can summarize their lyrics is: “How can you tell a story about life if you haven’t dared to live life to its fullest?” 

Pressure is all about every story, every moment, every Pressure!
