I've been out of the loop. So this is why he left Diamond Dawn? And why they've now changed their name?

Hard to form a reliable opinion based on the unplugged track. I'd like to hear the proper version.

We are really proud to present these two fantastic musicians and friends.
Say welcome to Carl Tudén on drums and Johan Gustafsson on guitar.
You might wonder what will happen to Theo. Together we have decided to let him take a step back from his guitar and take the keyboard instead. But no worries, Theo will of course continue to play some guitar in the band.
Right now we have signed a great deal with a label that we believe in and who have faith in Art Nation and our upcoming album. More about that later
We have also some great tour dates to announce to you guys.
Thanks to all of you out there who believe in us and spread our music and name.
Hope to see you on the road, kick some ass together and enjoy world class rock ’n’ roll!
Art Nation is here to stay!

He was shite in Diamond Dawn, but sounds better here. Im dreading a ballad though as he'll sound shit again.

 

Worth checking out tho.

'Revolution' out August 28th on AOR Heaven.

 

Pressrelease:

 

Swedish rock band Art Nation release their highly anticipated debut album "Revolution". Playing concerts throughout the year, while recording the album simultaneously, shows that the band is truly "going all in". Art Nation was formed 2013 in Gothenburg, Sweden, after lead singer Alexander Strandell's departure from his former band Diamond Dawn. Strandell, already well known for his strong voice and energetic stage presence, decided to raise the bar, and gathered some of the best musicians available, bassist Simon Gudmundsson being the first, shortly followed by Theodor Hedström and Christoffer Borg. An acoustic single, "Moving On", was recorded, followed by power ballad "One Is Better Than No One", which also featured a music video and was released in collaboration with humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières), who named the song Official Charity Song of 2014, and all money generated from it was, and still is, donated directly to the organization. "One Is Better Than No One" was also the starting point of the band's collaboration with producer and engineer Jakob Herrmann (Raised Fist, Hardcore Superstar, Engel, etc). Art Nation spent the rest of 2014 playing shows, as well as guesting national TV and radio shows, further building their fan base and reputation. The band got its final line-up when adding second guitarist Johan Gustavsson, together with drummer Carl Tudén, who was recruited just after winning the Swedish Drum Championships. In early 2015, Art Nation signed a deal with German label AOR Heaven for their full-length debut album, titled "Revolution". The record was produced and recorded by Jakob Herrmann at Top Floor Studios, together with Christoffer Borg. "Revolution" consists of 12 songs, one being a completely remade version of their first single "Moving On". It also features the stripped down piano ballad "Look To The Sky", performed in one single take by Strandell and keyboardist Theodor Hedström. The album is mixed and mastered at Hansen Studios in Denmark by renowned mixing engineer Jacob Hansen (Amaranthe, Engel, Volbeat, etc).

Yep.......this upbeat track was right on. I really liked the unplugged "Movin On" track as well. Something about his voice is not "mainstream" which adds to the sound.
