NO | classic rock, hard rock

Classic Rock, Vintage Rock or Retro Rock. Whatever you want to call this bluesy, occasionally psychedelic version of hard rock inspired by the great acts of the late sixties and seventies: the best representatives of the subject have always come from northern Europe. The further north they come from, the better they are – or so it seems. And it doesn't get much further north than Tromsø, the hometown of the Norwegian Pristine, which lies over 300 kilometers beyond the Arctic Circle...

Pristine are one of the most inspiring and compelling live bands in the genre, having played hundreds of shows from intimate club shows to slots at major festivals across the continent.

Heidi is looking forward to finally being able to tour again with the new Pristine album The Lines We Cross . "We played a handful of smaller shows in Norway last year when it was possible again for a short time. The government had all restrictions were lifted before the Omikron wave came and everything was over again. These far too few evenings were wonderful for us, but apparently also for the fans. You could literally feel how hungry both sides were for live music. It felt almost like when we started the band and played our first concerts."

Back then, it was 2006: Heidi was attending the music conservatory in Tromsø, where she studied singing, when she launched the first incarnation of Pristine. After a few years of finding a sound and members and two albums released exclusively in Norway, the band started in 2016 with Reboot internationally. This was followed by extensive European concert tours with stylistically similar acts such as The Brew and Blues Pills. The following year, Pristine followed up with Ninja and in 2019 the Scandinavians were able to crack the German album charts for the first time thanks to Road Back to Ruin .

With The Lines We Cross, album number six came to us at the beginning of 2023, which was then extensively presented live on tour through Europe!
