Friday September 13th 2013. After a tour with Paradise Lost the Outshine tour bus where robbed and a full per-recorded album, band fees, important documents, passports and gear were lost.
Swedish Tax Authorities, without a shred of proof, started to haunt founder and guitarist Jimmy Norberg stating “music is not a real occupation”.
The authority issued an 80.000 euro fine with 30 days for Jimmy to pay it otherwise houses, cars, instruments and belongings would be confiscated and the company and the band put out of business... the worst years in Outshine history had started.
But Outshine is not the ordinary band and Jimmy is not the "average Joe". The bastard authorities and deceitful people were fought in court.
After a long legal process Jimmy won in court early 2017 against the Swedish Authority. Cleared from all accusations and the 80.000 euro fines recouped.... the resurrection could be started.
With a new set of members including Tony Jelencovich (Transport League, ex-M.A.N, ex-B-Thong, Death Destruction, ex-Mnemic), Niklas Ingvarsson and Alexander Lundgren (ex-Devilicious), four agonizing years had finally come to an end.
First single "Liar" will be revealed November 24th, new album "1313" revealed February 23rd 2018. First show at Sticky Fingers Friday January 5th 2018.
