An escalating drum roll opens Our Ill Wills, the sophomore album from Shout Out Louds. And rightly so. It's been a few years since the release of their first full-length record, the critically acclaimed Howl Howl Gaff Gaff. But the band's been anything but lazy. These last few years have seen their passports fill up with stamps and their photo albums with snap shots from all corners of the world. They've done their own headline tours as well as being the support act of choice for bands such as The Strokes, The Magic Numbers and Kings Of Leon. Being on the road means you got plenty of time. To think. To drink. To reminisce the past. To play computer games. To miss loved ones. To get lost in new towns. To misbehave and to get your priorities in order. It's all there, on Our Ill Wills. Well, maybe not the computer games so much.

Swedish indie pop hopefuls Shout Out Louds were formed in Stockholm by childhood friends Adam (vocals), Ted (bass), and Carl (guitars) in 2001. Soon after they were joined by Eric (drums) and Bebban (vocals, keys) and began writing songs. The first three they wrote formed the basis of their first demo tape. The songs caught the ear of Filip Wilén, the owner of Sweden's Bud Fox Recordings, and he quickly signed them. The group spent 2002 writing more songs and recorded four of them for a debut EP, 2003's 100. The group's high-energy, ultra-melodic sound was in place from the very beginning. The band toured around Sweden and Scandinavia following its release and followed up the EP with two singles, "Hurry Up Let's Go" and "Shut Your Eyes." In October of 2003 the group released its first album, Howl Howl Gaff Gaff, which produced the singles "Please Please Please" and "Very Loud/Wish I Was Dead", to great acclaim in Sweden.
