Jetbone is a Swedish rock band from Sundsvall, formed in 2008. The band consists of Alin Riabouchkin (vocals and guitar), Gustav “Gurten” Sjödin (bass and vocals), Sebastian Engberg (lead guitar), Tobias Bengtsson (piano and organs) and Albin Linder (drums). Jetbone’s music is versatile within the rock and roll scene, yet heavily influenced by southern rock, funk and soul. To date, they have two studio albums – the self-titled album Jetbone released in 2012, and their forthcoming album Magical Ride, to be released in 2016. They are currently active in Sweden, playing various shows and engaging in diverse musical projects.
Jetbone was first known as Degeneration, which lived among a broad circle of youths who enjoyed playing and exploring music together. As the early months went by, the core of the band started to take shape and they eventually got their first gigs at local places like Pipeline, Domsaga and various schools. The band suddenly decided to change their name to Jetbone because Degeneration, according to them, lacked uniqueness and opened up for misspelling in news and shows.
Throughout the years, Jetbone have had many members who have come and gone – which has labeled their constantly changing music style. The band’s early sound was influenced by garage rock and punk, which, presently, developed into a more melodic, groove-focused movement.
The band’s gigs have mostly been in Sweden. Internationally, they have toured in Spain two times and Russia once. Their most recent tour was in Sweden 2015, with the American musician Hannah Aldridge.
