NEW ALBUM IN THE MAKING!

At last! After a pretty long period of writing and rehearsing new material we´ve finally entered the studio to record what will be our fifth release. The band has been together for 10 years now and we can´t think of a better way to celebrate this than with the release of a new album.

QUOTES ON PLANKTON

"I can’t stress enough about the tonal nuances and unique ambiences the music projects. It’s groove oriented instrumental ingenuity and melody at it’s finest."
Brian D. Holland, Modern Guitars


"I wish I had found them first."
Mike Varney, Shrapnel Records


"Jimi's smiling down on these guys – somebody finally got it right. With a presentative format that is familiar yet totally original and innovative to the highest degree, PLANKTON is a cut above ANY and ALL comers. They are in a league of their own, as well they should be...they've set a marvelous and intimidating precedent in modern guitar music for everything else that's yet to come in the wake of their brilliance. Rare? Indeed."
Jimmy Ryan, Truthsquad


"There is a major difference between PLANKTON and nearly 99% of the so-called "guitar heroes" of the day: these guys are one serious freaking band and they approach it that way."

Ray Dorsey, Chaos Realm



"A remarkable band and without a doubt one of the best outfits Sweden has to offer nowadays."
BigRedMachine, Rockprog.com
