Riddarna is the third band ever and the first band in Scandinavia to release their own Spotify app. Today the language bridging app “Riddarna Translator” is released in all countries where Spotify is available, with the description “Learn Swedish the stressful and confusing way through the music of Riddarna”. You’ll find the app in the App Finder in Spotify.
We will participate in this years Musikhjälpen (The Music Help): a money-collecting-event that brings attention to hidden humanitarian disasters. Three celebrity hosts will live in a glass cage to broadcast radio and tv non stop around the clock for 144 hours. We will visit the cage on December 15 to play live and also hopefully contribute to the collection.
See you there!

It doesn’t matter how you do it. Film yourself with your mobile phone while performing it live and upload it to youtube or record the song with a crappy microphone at your kitchen table. You don’t have to sing in tune or have all six strings present on your guitar. You don’t even need a guitar. As long as you make a cover version of a Riddarna tune, you can’t go wrong.
Do you need song lyrics translated from Swedish to English? Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The best cover version is selected by the jury and the winner will recieve, except unlimited fame and glory, the new limited Bakom Molnen vinyl, the debut album vinyl, t-shirts and free entrance to all the upcoming gigs 2012.
Send a link, audio file or video clip to:
email@example.com no later than october, 22th.

We are very pleased to announce that we have started working with United Stage!
