After massive praise from fans and the media for their previous albums “Forget the past, Let’s Worry About the Future” (2016) and “The World is a Rabbit Hole”(2021) and sold out concerts all over Norway in 2022, “Special Agents” is perhaps their most anticipated album to date.

To record this album Pil & Bue went back into Cederberg Studios in Kristiansand, Norway where they also recorded “The World is a Rabbit Hole” and created this emotional and sonic rollercoaster of an album that is a tribute to all the everyday heroes out there.

Pil & Bue comments:
We want to acknowledge people that include and take care of people around them.
It is a very philosophizing album, that to a certain degree comment on how we all seek detachment to become who we really are.
All humans want to feel freedom and happiness, if so, just for a little while.
We need more kindness and justice in the world.
And those themes will never leave our lyrics.

Co-producer and mixer Christer André Cederberg comments;
“This album has it all! Raw energy, pure music joy, anger, sorrow, humor and hope.
It is heavy, punk, dynamic,beautiful, melancholic, and experimental!
What more can you ask for?”

FFO: The Mars Volta, QOTSA, Mew, Deftones, Metallica

With one of the best vocalists from Norway, Petter Carlsen, on vocals and guitar, and Gøran Johansen slaying the drums, they are an explosion of hard rock.

With subtle, but pronounced references to artists like Placebo, Deftones, Sigur Rós, Anathema and Mars Volta, Pil & Bue delivers “Hard, gloomy & joyful music…” (Metal Hammer NO) based on topics like memories, childhood aspirations, use of imagination, video games, and the intriguing online rabbit holes.

The band´s raw and melodic music quickly struck a note with Hollywood director Tommy Wirkola who included the Pil & Bue single “You Win Again” in his now cult-status movie “Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival January 2014.

Also, their single “Fire” from their second album “Forget the Past, Let’s Worry About The Future” is featured on the end credits of Hollywood/Netflixblockbuster “What Happened To Monday” (2017).

Pil & Bue released their acclaimed third album The World is a Rabbit Hole in September 2021, an album which got rave reviews: 6/6 Scream Magazine (NO), 5/5 Metal´art (FR), 5/6 Norway Rock Magazine, 5 Altaposten, 7/10 Metalhammer UK og 11/15 from www.betreutesproggen.de.
