2013, It's not yet 18 months since their critically acclaimed album HoS hit the market, but the band has been working on a sequel ever since. It's about time to let the new opus PAY TO PLAY see the light of day. House Of Shakira are a Swedish rock formed by guitarists Mats Hallstensson and Anders Lundström that started out in Stockholm around 1991 under the moniker The Station. The mid 1990's saw the band change their name to House Of Shakira, named after a London bordello. In their 22 year history the band has released six previous studio albums, all of which have left their mark, making the band one of Sweden's best known musical exports as well as hometown heroes. Their famed debut album LINT remains a genre classic. For the band's second album with singer Andreas Novak, the guys collectively concluded that it was time to give the debut a run for its money. PAY TO PLAY is accordingly their best album so far.
