Turbo Rules – In Memoriam

John “Turbo” Shatesky

01/25/1980 – 07/28/2023


Like a bat shot out of hell or a kick in the gut when youʼre already down: Addictive, straightforward, tough, ironic and dead serious, all at once. Sweden’s Satan Takes a Holiday grabs you by the neck and does not let go until you’re right on the verge of passing out.
The Stockholm based garage rockers have a new single released tomorrow, “The Beat,” which can be heard here   The track is pulled from their forthcoming fourth album.  Since releasing their self titled debut album in late 2009, the Swedes have racked up a slew of accolades including a nomination in the Best Rock Band category at the P3 Guld Awards and having their single, “Karma Babe” (from 2012’s ‘Who Do You Voodoo’) inducted into one national radio station’s “Hall of Fame” by their listeners, to name but two.

They’re earned a reputation as a formidable live act while on the road with Juliette Lewis, Mustach and Imperial State Electric.  To top it all off, the band supported rock legends KISS in front of an audience of 30,000+ in Stockholm.
Satan Takes a Holiday releases their fourth album, Aliens, in February of 2017.

The band says, ““The Beat”, as well as most of the tracks on our upcoming album Aliens, is about the subject of alienation and frustration in the sense of not being in line with the present. To stand in the middle of everything and ask how the hell it could become like this.
