Freddy and the Phantoms er i 2015 aktuelle med deres 3. album Times of Division, som netop er udkommet i Europa til stor begejstring hos rockanmeldere i lande som Tyskland, Norge , Belgien, Italien og England.

Bluesrockgruppen er i 2015 , efter et hektisk 2014 hvor de har varmede op for stand up-komiker Frank Hvam på hans turné, i gang med at turnere Danmark i kølvandet på albummet ” Times of Division ” som er lyden af rendyrket riffrock, tilsat fuzz , guitarharmonier, distortet hammondorgel og forrygende rå vokalpræstationer.

Singlerne “On the Sidewalk” , “Storm on the Riverside” og “Borderline Blues” er allerede blevet råspillet på P4 og Myrock, og de Danske såvel som udenlandske kritikere er ikke i tvivl:

” – det er overbevisende og ganske uundgåeligt, hvis du har bare den mindste hang til retrorock med masser af distorted hammond, fuzzet guitar og en allerhelvedes energi. Så er du til Graveyard, The Blue Van eller Go Go Berlin!, så er det bare om at komme ned til din pladepusher efter en kopi – på vinyl! ” – Revolution-inc.dk

Freddy and the Phantoms har siden 2010 spillet over 200 koncerter i Danmark og Tyskland, imponeret på Smukfest 2014 og gennem de seneste år supportet bands i international topklasse bl.a The Eagles, Rick Springfield, Hayseed Dixie, Blackberry Smoke og Twisted Sister.

ENGLISH:

The Danish blues-rock group Freddy and the Phantoms, from Copenhagen are ready with their third album “Times of Division”.

Freddy and the Phantoms have already convinced the Danish rock press, played more than 85 concerts in 2014 and received massive airplay on Danish national radio. Praised as a Danish version of the retro blues rock wave lead by Rival Sons and Graveyard, Freddy and the Phantoms are ready to conquer Europe.

The Copenhagen based 5- piece has had a public breakthrough in 2014 with a massive tour in Denmark as houseband for the famous Danish comedian Frank Hvam (known from KLOVN). Now they are ready with “Times of Division” – a record of pure riffrock, fuzz, guitar harmonies, overdriven hammond organs and bluesy raw vocals. Lyrically the album addresses the feeling of standing at the crossroads – and how to choose the right path as an artist.

As a live act Freddy and the Phantoms have impressed audiences all over Denmark, played at Smukfest 14 (The 2. biggest festival in Denmark) and proven themselves as a band of international quality, and supported legends as The Eagles (US) and Rick Springfield (US).

The Singles “On the Sidewalk” and “Storm On the Riverside” has already made it to heavy rotation on DR P4, the biggest radio broadcast service in DK, and music journalists have praised the album.

QUOTES ON OUR FIRST ALBUM ” LEAVING THE LANDSCAPE”  (2010):

“The Songwriter’s heart is buried further west, specifically in the U.S., where Sun Studios ‘special reverb and Johnny Cash locomotive drums have set lasting imprint in Freddy och Phanthoms’ musical universe. The debut LP features eight country rock’n’roll tracks, competent, composed and delivered. “
Gaffa.dk 3 / 6

“Frederik Schnoor and his phantoms, creates a festive, diverse and competent album.”
Diskant.dk  7/10

“A tightly structured and easily likeable display of love for sixties music, especially the American kind, and it stands to Freddy’s credit that he, as a denizen of the cold, dark north, has managed to interpret the genre more or less without inconsistency in the credibility department.”
Rockfreaks.net  7/10
