From the press release:

Produced and recorded by MÄRVEL at studio Solskensfabriken, mixed by Robert "Humbucker" Pehrsson and mastered by Magnus Lindberg. Cover art by Mats Engesten.Swedish power-trio Märvel launch the single and music video ”Slasher with a Broken Heart”. The track is the first taste of an upcoming studio album that will be released in 2022 as part of the band’s 20-years anniversary. Inspired by the love story between ABBA singer Agnetha Fältskog and her stalker, ”Slasher with a Broken Heart” tells a tale of both love, loneliness and obsession, all filtered through Märvel’s energetic, powerful, and undoubtedly catchy take on melodic garage rock.Guitarist/Vocalist The King explains the song:”This song is about the relationship between ABBA singer Agnetha Fältskog and her stalker, Gert van der Graaf. After falling head over heels in love with Agnetha, Gert bought a house next to the superstar, and the two somehow eventually ended up as a couple. However falling in love with your stalker is not a good way to start a relationship, and when Agnetha eventually broke up with Gert, he turned completely mad. As mad as a Slasher with a Broken heart. It all ended up with ’someone standing in the bushes behind your house….’”The King continues:”Even for a creepy stalker, loneliness is a terrible feeling. It’s something affecting all humans. I find that interesting, and it’s something that inspired me to write this song””Slasher with a Broken Heart” is released as a digital single on September 3 via The Sign Records. The single is released with a music video. More music from Märvel coming soon.
