“Love is what they’ll get when they break up and join in Spleen United” – so begins the song Spleen Utd by the Danish band Spleen United! After a long break Spleen United returned in 2019 and played Roskilde Festival and fittingly opened their show on the Arena with the song “Spleen Utd”. I remember all of us in the photo pit smiling and dancing while we were making pictures. Dancing photographers, not the prettiest sight, but there was no stopping us, we were so happy to join in Spleen United again. You can actually watch a great video of the Spleen United opening right here, perhaps you can spot a dancing photographer too!
Then in November 2019 I got to spend the whole day with Spleen United at VEGA in Copenhagen. I have been a big fan ever since their album Godspeed into the Mainstream came out in 2005. Jeez, has it been that long. Spleen still sounds insanely good in 2019, and it was such an amazing show at Vega, filled with hardcore fans who were really, really happy to see the band back together again. We all joined in Spleen United. I look forward to hearing what new songs they guys come up with this year and hope to catch them on the road again whenever live shows can happen again. Until then, headphones on, play some Spleen United and travel back to Spleen United at Vega:
