Qualmbum is the fourth full-length album from the pop punk veterans, and is just as simple as it is complicated. Just as happy as it is sad. Most of the eleven tracks on the album were written after catastrophe hit lead singer and songwriter Torkel back in January 2022, when he and his wife lost their newborn son due to fatal hospital mistakes.

Qualmbum is the fourth full-length album from the pop punk veterans, and is just as simple as it is complicated. Just as happy as it is sad. Most of the eleven tracks on the album were written after catastrophe hit lead singer and songwriter Torkel back in January 2022, when he and his wife lost their newborn son due to fatal hospital mistakes.

When asked about the album Torkel writes… “The first and the last song on the album, My Name is Dad and Qualm, reflect on the sorrow and the trauma you go through losing a child, while the song Please Hold describes the anger and aggression you deal with when there actually is someone to blame. Rated R and Para Toda la Vida are both hymns to Torkel’s wife, while Lately is an anthem attempting to look forward to something and someone, as Torkel a year ago became a father for the fourth time. Other songs on the album were written a while before 2022, and deal with more everyday-9-to-5-normal-people-issues: Heartbreaks, hangovers, family, and the struggle between me, myself and I. All in all, Qualmbum, makes us really proud. We hope it makes you feel something to.”

High End Denim Records form part of a six label worldwide collaborative for the release of goldenboy Qualmbum, which we’ll be releasing on Limited Edition LP Friday 24th May. Numbers are super limited though, with the 250 LPs pressed shared across six labels… so be sure to get your pre-order in quick!
