THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY today announces their latest disc, Cross Of My Calling, will be released on November 25, 2008 on Vagrant/American Recordings in the U.S. The quartet recorded the fourteen-track set at Sunset Sound in Hollywood with legendary producer Rick Rubin at the helm. 
"We've worked hard for a long time, but it's a tough world to get by in. Anything that doesn't fit the mold scares the music industry," says lyricist and singer Dennis Lyxzén. "We know how this world works; that's just the way it is, But we also recognize the industry is on shaky ground because of that, which is why it's so cool to have someone like Rick believe in you."

Guest appearances on the album include Karl Jacobsson- organ, Lenny Castro – percussion, Sam Velde and Lisa Kekaula (The Bellrays) – backing vocals.

2 updates from the official INVASIONEN myspace page: 

09 apr 2008:
why Swedish and a new name and some other random things!!!! 

Alright!!!
So, alot of people have been asking about the name change and the language change so I’d thought that I’d give you some sort of reason why all of this happened!

Change of name: There is a really crappy stuck up American artsy fartsy Indie band from NYC called The lost Patrol and they copyrighted the name and sent us threateing letters saying that we interfered with their livelyhood and so on. 
They got laywers involved and managed to remove all the Lost Patrol Band and Lost Patrol stuff from all American Distros and Itunes and such places. They also threatend to sue us if we ever used the name in the states again. This is also a big part of why the last LPB record never came out in the states.
So, we figured that we needed a new name if we ever wanted to come to the states or even make our records avalible over there!

A while ago I started trying to write songs in Swedish, this felt like alot of fun and something new and somewhere along the line we decided that we were going to start playing only Swedish songs so then we figured that we should change our name into a swedish name and call it quits with The Lost Patrol Band. Sometimes you just need to go where you heart and music takes you!!! We did The Lost Patrol Band for 5 years, did over a 100 shows and did a couple of great tours but... it was time for a change!
So, we choose the name Invasionen. Invasionen is Swedish for The Invasion. At first we wanted to call the band Invasion cause that would work in english as well but given the fact that there are like a million bands called Invasion (Vinnie Vincents Invasion just to mention one ) we went with Invasionen.

About singing in Swedish: I never ever wrote songs in Swedish, ever. For the past 20 years I’ve been singing in a language that is not my own! And when we started writing in Swedish it felt cool, a whole new way of communcating and a whole new set of words to play with.
We might still do songs in English, might even do the new record in both a Swedish and English version. Right now we are focusing on the Swedish but.... 
Also, the ambitious man that I am, I will try to add the lyrics to the songs here and maybe (if we ever update it) on the Ny Våg webpace. Both in Swedish and in English!!! For those of you that are curious, these are some of the most relevant lyrics I ever written!!!
So, there you have it!!! Hopefully people that dont understand Swedish will still dig the music that we are making!!!! And hopefully people will come out and see us play with the new tunes and the new name!!!

Some other short news!!!
Check out Roberts other band Masshysteri, they are touring their asses off in a club near you, so go out and support them. Great stuff! www.myspace.com/masshysteri.
Andre is not only playing drums with us he is also Singing in a great punkband called Tristess, they are done with their new record and they have music on the line. www.myspace.com/tristessumea.
Also check out Anders other band the Deportees, they are going into the studio next week to record a new record. www.myspace.com/deporteesmusic 

Sorry, this got really long!!!
If you read this far, well done!!!
Hope to see you soon and remember. Invasionen är här!!!!!!
Love
Dennis and Invasionen!!!!

01 apr 2008:
New name!!! 

So, it is official! 
We changed our name and we are now called Invasionen. The Lost Patrol Band is no more!!!!
We Played our first proper show at the Umeå Open Festival this past weekend together with among others The Scrags, Pascal, Auktion, Masshysteri and Sista Sekunden!
Next weekend we are playing a couple of shows in Umeå and Luleå to get started then we are going to take the rest of the spring off to write new songs.
Robert is going on tour with Masshysteri and Anders is recording a new Deportees album.
Our plan is to write songs during the spring and hopefully record a proper record this summer. We recorded two songs for the Upcoming Ny Våg compilation and also recorded a demo, we added a couple of songs here!
Our plan is to sing only in Swedish, we have a couple of songs written in English so we will see what happens with that.
Anyway, we have more news coming and we will hopefully add some more music and some more photos later on!
alright, we will keep you updated. This is an exiting time. 
Love
Invasionen!!!!

Updates from the official THE (INTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY myspace page: 

First update 2008

Hello! 

We thought it was about time to give you all an update from The (international) Noise Conspiracy camp. This will be the first update in bunch to follow to let you know, first hand, about what's going on with the band and the new album. 

We want to thank everyone that supported the Causes 1 – project and bought the "Causes"-album from Waxploitation records. There's still time to buy the album on-line, just click on the link below. All the profits are going to Doctors without borders, Human rights watch, Oxfam America and Save Darfur. We have contributed to this album with a song called "Washington Bullets" that will be featured on our upcoming album.
http://www.waxploitation.com/2007/causes.html

When it comes to our new album we are as anxious as you are to have it released. It's been a slow process to get the album mixed and we sure wish things had gone faster, but now things are really moving forward. We have most of the album mixed and it sounds amazing! We want to thank you all for waiting so patiently and you will be rewarded with the best album we have ever done by far. And soon, very soon, we hope to post some exclusive pre-release tracks on-line. 

The new album entitled "THE CROSS OF MY CALLING", produced by RICK RUBIN, will be released by American Recordings later this year. We wish that we could give you a set release date by now, but we do not have one yet. As soon as we know – you will know.

Apart from playing some fantastic shows last year, we all have been busy with our own projects and private lives. 

Dennis has been touring Europe and Scandinavia, like a madman, with the LOST PATROL BAND who has now changed their name to INVASIONEN. There will be more info about this to follow on the bands official web sites. Dennis also left the urban life to settle down on the country side. Apart from that he has been running his NY VÅG label and the NY VÅG-club.

BREAKING NEWS: 

This year will most likely give us a new REFUSED record! It's their US label Epitaph that are planning to release a live album! The band had a meeting sometime ago regarding this and regarding their contract with Epitaph

David Sandström says:

"...It was nice to meet again but it feels kind of surrealistic that new material will see the light of day when we quit the band almost 10 years ago..."

This is really great news and I will keep you updated about it as soon as I hear anything! 

Check this link for more info (only in Swedish): 
www.folkbladet.nu/2008/01/30/refused-slapper-nytt-album

Another thing to look forward to is the upcoming DAVID SANDSTRÖM OVERDRIVE album. There will probably be a single released in February and the album will probably be out in March!

Updates from the official THE LOST PATROL BAND myspace page: 

A long needed update and a tour of Sweden!!!!

The Dates are:
10/1 Stockholm - Debaser Medis
11/1 Turku (finland) - S-Osis 
12/1 Helsinki (Finland) - Tavasti
23/1 Örebro - Tba (by Ourselves)
24/1 Malmö - Kb
25/1 Norrköping - Mogwai
26/1 Göteborg - Sticky Fingers
31/1 Sandviken - Kungen

We have no real plans for the rest of the spring but we might try to make a trip out to Spain and Italy!
We are also still looking for a label to release our record in the states.

Other news are the we recorded a couple of songs for a possible 7" with April 77. We also started writing songs for a new album, the plan is to make one record in Swedish and then one in English. The songwriting is going really well and we are playing a bunch of new songs live right now. We will keep you updated on that.

The last thing is that we have to change our name. If there is going to be any possibility that records will be avalible in the states. The band Lost patrol from NYC threathens to sue if we use the Lost patrol band name in the states and they made sure that all the old records got removed from Itunes and from the recordstores.... great people for sure!!!!
So, a name change is coming up... maybe even a swedish and a english name to really confuse matters!!!

anyway, hope to see you out on the road!!!
Love
Dennis and The band that still goes under the name the Lost patrol band!!!
