Roots & Wings
The new Swedish classic hard rock band MAJOR INSTINCT is the brainchild of M. ILL. ION founder, main songwriter and bass guitarist B. J Laneby. After 25 years, seven highly critically acclaimed albums with six figures sales and international touring, he decided to put M. ILL. ION to rest and start something new. This decision came after B. J became very ill and actually nearly died at the end of their last UK-tour (June/July 2014). Several months of intensive care both in the UK and in Sweden followed and once conscious and recovering, he had a lot of time to think. Said and done, the best musicians and the coolest guys available in Sweden were picked and in late December 2014 MAJOR INSTINCT was formed in Gothenburg. A BAND, not a project! The line-up soon was completed with Stefano Marchesini (lead vocals, ex HUMAN RACE), Magnus Mild (guitars), Johan Häll (drums, ex- M. ILL. ION) and 22-year old newcomer Gabriel Glamheden (Hammond & keys).
