PUST are celebrating their 10 years anniversary in 2013, and are also releasing their fourth album; Fryktløs.
After PUST gave out their Christmas album "Julero" in 2011, much of their focus has been around Christmas concerts. It was time to step outside this bubble for a while and start on their fourth album.The genre is not necessarily that important for the band, but rather the timbre and expression that they wish to convey at any given time. During the search for new material the group discovered that several of them had written songs that matched each other - both lyrically and musically. This time PUST presents us with a folk-pop record - everyday lyrics with great melodies in unique arrangements.
