Seigmen (N)



Seigmen (formed in 1989 in Tønsberg, Vestfold, Norway) is a Norwegian alternative rock band who came into prominence in the early 1990s. The band's name is derived from Norwegian sweets brand Laban Seigmenn. The band went from a hard-edged grunge-like style to a more dynamic sound with more ambient parts and use of synthesizers and various audio-effects.

The band was formed in Tønsberg, Norway, in 1989. Økshoff and Møklebust started a band with the name Klisne Seigmenn having their first gig at the “Julerock” (“Christmas rock”) event in Tønsberg on December 27, 1989. In 1990, Christensen, Ljung and Ronthi joined the band. They recorded several studio albums, including two with American producer Sylvia Massy in Los Angeles. They broke up in 1999 after a farewell tour.

Seigmen reunited during the UKA-festival in Trondheim on October 20, 2005, and decided in November 2005 to do even more reunion gigs in Norway: there were seven shows in February 2006. Having great success with the reunion tour, they did six more gigs at various festivals across Norway during summer 2006, mostly as the headlining act. Media reports that summer said that Seigmen did not rule out another reunion some time in the future. In early 2008 it was announced that Seigmen would again play live, which they did on June 21 the Oslo Opera House, as one of the shows celebrating the opening of the new Opera House in Oslo. Selling out the show quickly, a second concert was set up the day after. In 2013 they contributed to the book "Think like a rockstar" Tenk som en rockestjerne, by Ståle Økland. Seigmen released a new album Enola in 2015.

Seigmen, die nationale Rockgröße Norwegens, melden sich nach 18 Jahren mit ihrem neuen Album ENOLA zurück.

Mit sechs Alben in sieben Jahren konnten sich die Norweger Seigmen in den Neunzigern wiederholt die Spitzenposition der heimischen Charts sichern. Dennoch löste sich die Band 1999 nach zehn Jahren auf und fand in der Folgezeit nur sporadisch und für kurze Zeit wieder zusammen.

Nachdem Teile der Band zwischenzeitlich bei Zeromancer aktiv waren, wollen es Seigman nun aber noch einmal wissen und werden passend zum Comeback mit ENOLA ihr erstes Album seit 18 Jahren veröffentlichen.
