Truly good music stands the test of time. The same can be said about true friendship, which is the fundament of what Nestor has been built upon from the very beginning. How else would you describe a band that was formed more than three decades ago, only to fall into a slumbering hibernation lasting until last year when the five members decided to reunite and reinvent the iconography of rock and restore its glory.
These are the themes that ‘Signed In Blood‘ – the latest single from Nestor are based on. That unbreakable bond of brotherhood that you just know will last forever. Or as a line from the lyrics goes:
“It’s been so many miles and days between us yet I know there’s a reason why we can’t let go”
Originally founded in 1989 but only releasing their first album ‘Kids In A Ghost Town‘ in 2021, Nestor‘s acclaimed first album sent their fans on a journey back in time to the 1980s, both in sound, spirit and in visuals with their stunning music videos, everything completely self produced.
Their album is also nominated for a Swedish Grammis in the category Hard Rock/Metal and will be re-released in a deluxe edition containing brand new bonus tracks later this year by Napalm Records who recently signed the band to their label.
‘Signed In Blood‘ is the first of these new tracks to be released during a year that will be full of exciting highlights from the band, among other things supporting childhood idols KISS at their arena gig in Stockholm this summer, as well as playing their own headline show at the properly named Nestor Fest at Falköpings Folkets Park in their hometown in Sweden.
