After coming home from the 'Purple Weekend' in Spain, manager Joakim Kilenstam persuaded singer Sven and bass-player Ola to join him in writing new songs. "Four Good Men And True" is their third album and it was released by Heptown Records on February 26, 2010. First out was the heavy single "Pack Up Your Memories" along with a video filmed and cut by photographer Nils Bergendal, light by Martin Berglund. They simply sneaked into the ancient "Kulturen" in Lund one summer night, lined up podiums, super troupers, three changes of clothes and made three astonishing music-videos.

Like the previous album, it was recorded at AGM studios, Vallarum, Sweden with Christoffer Lundquist producing. Live in the studio in the typical THE MEN-manner, with toppings like harpsichord, glockenspiel, hammond-organ, vibraphone, pianet, electric piano, bass harmonica, acoustic guitars and a flute! The twelve songs are packed with musical sophistication, dynamic tension and of course the classic three-part harmony vocals the band do so well. The result is simply breathtaking!
