Second Album

Requests kept coming in from all over the world for THE MEN to write their own songs for their follow-up album. So that's just what they did. Twelve brand new smash songs were created, then instantly recorded, by special invitation from producer Christoffer Lundquist (Roxette, Gessle, Moneybrother, Brainpool), at AGM Studios. The nerve and attack of the first album was maintained, but with all original material this time. Producer Christoffer Lundquist considers THE MEN RETURN to be "a future classic".

Since the album was recorded in straight live takes of performances, with a minimum of overdubs, the joyful and energetic sound is easy for the group to recreate on stage. Rock music at its best; simple, honest and melodic songs with guts and love. As soon as Torgny Sjöö, MD of Playground Music Scandinavia, heard the tracks he immediately signed a deal with THE MEN MUSICAL INDUSTRIES. On the 23rd of May 2006 the first single If I Can´t Have You was released.
