Art Nation is a Swedish melodic rock band from Gothenburg, founded in 2014 by Alexander Strandell.
Their debut album Revolution was released in August 2015 by German record company Metal Heaven.
The band was nominated for one of Sweden's biggest music prizes, "Gaffa- priset", 2015, 2016, and 2017, as "The Best Live Act of the Year" and "Swedish Breakthrough of the Year" and "Swedish Group of the Year" like Zara Larsson, Ghost, Laleh, Håkan Hellström and In Flames.
The song "Look to the Sky" featured in the newspaper Aftonbladet's best-selling list 2015 and was named "Beautifulest Ballad of the Year".
In early 2016, the band signed a worldwide record contract with Sony Music Entertainment / Gain, which led to a sharp success curve in a short period of time. In mid-2016, the band was highly featured with "We Are Better Together", this year's specially written Gothia Cup song, performed during the opening ceremony at Ullevi on July 18, 2016, for an audience of 60,000. In this connection, the band also participated in SVT where the "Gothia song" was played live.
The tour summer also included many play dates at festivals, clubs and other contexts.
