Hello Guys! Welcome to Melodifestivalen! How are you?
Fine thank you! 

How would you describe the band?
We are a punk/rock band and we like catchy melodies and songs full of energy. 
How did you meet each other? & when did you start playing together?
We met in school when we were 15-16 years old and found out that we all were into the same bands so we started playing and never quit! 
Tell me about the name of the band:
We had to come up with a name because we had a show booked so we found a sticker that said something like "Never store this..." and we thought it sounded good.  

You are one of the participants of MF 2015. How did it all begin?
We wrote the song together with Thomas Gson and John Gordon and sent it to the festival. Then we went on touring and wrote more songs and one day the phone rang and they told us they picked our song. We're super excited to be a part of Melodifestivalen and can't wait to let people hear our song!
"If I Was God For One Day" is the title of your song and its written by one of you (Jacob), Thomas G:son and John Gordon. How was it working with them?
We have actually talked about writing together for a while. We live in the same city, Skövde, so we just needed a time and place to meet the make it happen. We met at my old cabin and sat at my kitchen table and came up with the idea of ”If I was God for one day”
