Kent - Hjärta

Kent is a Swedish alternative rock band founded in Eskilstuna in 1990. Kent have been figure a lot on Tune Of The Day, so no need for a closer introduction. kent has been busy the last two weeks with rehearsing for the upcoming tour, see the dates below. The new setup for the tour is a little bit bigger than the last one, more lights, new stage built on black aluminum and acrylic stage plates(so the lights can get thru below), and some cool set pieces of pipes and tubes, looks great, sound and rest of the gear is almost similar as the last tour. The set list contains 20 tunes and no i wont tell what the tunes are, that would spoil the moment of surprise :) but todays tune is one of the songs from it. Some other new things are that new drum sticks is made, new guitar picks with four new symbols, all the new things are printed in red of course.

Todays tune "Hjärta" is the second single from the band's eight studio album, Röd. its a short film by Efterlyst which uses Hjärta as the behind music. The video was made to highlight the lives of those people who disappear every year in Sweden and the impact it has on the families who are left behind.
