The Statement

The Biography

With over 1 million streams on Spotify for their first few self-released singles and the international recognition for their insanely intense live shows, The Cruel Intentions present a unique blend and a modern day Guns N’ Roses meets Sex Pistols meets Buckcherry style. The Cruel Intentions was founded in the wake of 2015, by Mats Wernerson, Lizzy DeVine, Kristian Solhaug and Eiliv Sagrusten, whereas Eiliv has been replaced as a drummer, by Robin Nilsson. All of the members have been involved with different bands previously; Notably, Lizzy DeVine lived several years in Los Angeles where he was the singer and songwriter of Vains of Jenna, a band that got their breakthrough with performances in the movies Jackass/Viva La Bam/Kat Von Dee’s LA Ink, together with touring multiple times throughout the states. He takes with him the atmosphere from his experiences, and blends it into a nuance of the no-fucks-given culture from that American era.
The band creates a young, original and modern expression, albeit with strong roots in the history of rock. This way they appeal to people of all ages and across genres. Their music conveys a wide range of emotional topics, with a light mix of optimism and pessimism as their basic recipe, although the tragicomical view of the world excels throughout the album. The dichotomy of the dark side of fun, contra the bright views of making mistakes; the loss of falling off in life and not fitting into society, contra the bravery with daring to be yourself, to go your own ways – these are the underlying themes in this album.

In technical terms, the band plays around the esthetics of bands such as Guns ‘N Roses and Mötley Crue, and carries on the legacy of good old Rock ‘N Roll into the contemporary youth of today. The songs are fast paced, humorous and at times really hard-hitting, especially with the assistance of Europe’s most clashing cowbell. This album reeks of confidence, and will certainly smite you with its persuasive musical turns. It’s groovy, angry, comical and sassy – bringing out the emotions of anger, joy, fun and confidence in the listener, all packaged beautifully in their 11 track album with the title ‘No Sign of Relief’.
