about

Tuxedo Rebels are Petur Pólson and Knút Háberg Eysturstein. Formed in 2002 when Petur was active in Clickhaze and Knút in Gestir. In accordance with the gravity of creation they went out and performed songs by some of their mutual heroes and along the way considered the idea of writing and releasing their own music.

A decade would pass before these plans were realized. Both Knút and Petur have been treading their own musical paths since 2002 and in the time that has passed Knút has moved abroad while Petur stayed in the Faroes. In the autumn of 2012 the two friends agreed that the time had come. Living in separate countries was not a hindrance but a condition for the creation of the debut album.

They began composing songs and worked together through Skype sessions. Knút was in Copenhagen with his guitar while Petur was in Sandavágur with pen and paper. An album of songs was written and recording sessions began in the living room at Petur’s place when Knút came home to the Faroes during Easter 2013.

They were joined by Benjamin Petersen (guitar, mandolin) and Per I. Højgaard Petersen (drum, percussion). The album was produced and recorded by Knút and mixed by Benjamin Petersen at Jens L. Thomsen’s Støkumørk studio. Jens also plays bass on the album.

For the mastering process Tuxedo Rebels requested the services of mastering engineer Dave Collins at Dave Collins Mastering, Los Angeles, USA. Dave has previously mastered albums by artists such as Ben Harper, Bruce Springsteen and Soundgarden.
Ten songs are on the album and they are all written by Tuxedo Rebels. Petur wrote the words and Knút wrote the music.
