Age Sten Nilsen is picking up where his former band Wigwam left off

Age Sten Nilsen is picking up where his former band Wigwam left off. Penning new rock anthems with Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse/W.E.T) in Stockholm since October 2013, originally dedicated for the long awaited sixth studio album from Wigwam. 

When Wigwam surprisingly decided to call it a day after 13 years, Age Sten soon formed his own band, recording the new songs in the vein of the new band effort Age Sten Nilsen's Ammunition.

The new material wears the same catchiness as Wigwam, yet offers a rougher and more subtle sound and arrangements than his former band's latter productions. Produced by one of melodic rocks most esteemed producers Erik Mårtensson, Age Sten Nilsen's Ammuniton is now on the verge of finishing it's first album due for a release later this year.
With a dream team of rock musicians in the line-up Age Sten Nilsen's Ammunition has already debuted live, blasting through Wigwam gems blended with new unreleased songs from the forthcoming album and live favorites from Zeppelin and Queen.

Age Sten Nilsen's Ammunition is: Åge Sten Nilsen - vocals (Wigwam / Nordic Beast); Hal Patino - bass (King Diamond/Pretty Maids/Nordic Beast); Robban Bäck - drums (Sabaton/Eclipse); Erik Mårtensson - guitars (W.E.T / Eclipse); Lasse Finbråthen - keyboards (Wigwam / Circus Maximus); Jon Pettersen - guitars (Åge's Queen show/Bad Habits). The band is already planning to head out on the road this summer.
