Congratulations are in order for Meshuggah.
This is a well-deserved award.
Something called SKAP awards annual scholarships and prizes to celebrate Swedish creativity across all musical genres.
The awards ceremony takes place in tandem with SKAP’s annual spring fling.
In 2014, Swedish progressive metal force Meshuggah were awarded an exclusive scholarship for their services to the Swedish and international music scene.
The musicians were presented with the scholarship and diploma by SKAP president Alfons Karabuda at an intimate event in the south side of Stockholm in December.
Says Meshuggah’s Jens Kidman of the honor:
“We are very happy to be acknowledged this way. The SKAP prize was a bright surprise in an otherwise dark time of the year. Thanks, SKAP!”
Meshuggah has been writing new music as of late for their next LP, but there’s no timeline yet for that effort’s release.
