Swedish Rockers tAKiDA Releases New Single “Sickening” + Lyric Video

tAKiDA band members

Top-notch Swedish rockers tAKiDA are ringing in the New Year with their brand-new single, entitled “Sickening”. The song comes off of their massive ninth studio album and Napalm Records debut, The agony flame, set for release on February 9, 2024! “Sickening” stands out musically and marks one of the most intense, heavier-leaning tracks on The agony flame, a record rich with dark, melancholic lyrics and heavy tunes all at once.                    

This new single arrives shortly after tAKiDA’s recent announcement of their 2024 “Smoke & Mirrors Tour”, including an extended run through several major cities in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Supported by the English band Those Damn Crows, the tour kicks off in Offenbach, Germany on April 2. Tickets are on sale now, so get them while they last!

Ever since their start in 1999 and breaking into the scene with their first studio album, Make You Breathe (2006), tAKiDA has become one of Sweden’s largest rock bands, garnering mind-blowing success in their home country with six platinum singles (one of them 4x platinum), three platinum albums and five #1 albums. In 2023, tAKiDA’s recent singles, cut from the upcoming album The agony flame, have exceeded the already extremely well-accomplished band’s previous international radio chart success, with “The loneliest hour” hitting #1 on German Rock Airplay Charts, and “Third strike” added to daily rotation at Antyradio – Poland’s biggest and most important rock radio channel. In summer 2023, tAKiDA conquered the mainstage of the legendary Wacken Open Air, performing in front of twenty thousand people. With the release of The agony flame in 2024, tAKiDAwill not only celebrate 25 years of band history, but surpass their current success without the shadow of a doubt.
tAKiDA on The agony flame:
The agony flame is our “now or never”-album and you’re free to interpret that however you want. Hope you’ll like it.”
