Sweden's Vigilantes have been making melodic and classic hardcore punk music since 1999, and, with "I Wanna" they make a major move towards global recognition.

They have done two European tours, and released a debut album, "Empty
Bottles & Broken Hearts," in 2003, to generally positive, if not rave reviews.

Not bad for a band from Skoghall, a village on Hammer island in Lake Všnern that hosts several of Sweden's largest paper and chemical companies.

Along with Johnny Thunders, Sylvain Sylvain, Stiv Bators, The Lurkers, Adicts, Alternative TV and others, they were featured on the Ramones tribute release "TODOS SOMOS RAMONES (Rockaway Records)," where The Vigilantes do a version of the song "Somebody Like Me." The Vigilantes' similarity to the Ramones and the New York Dolls is easy to see.

Like they sing in "Here We Go," "we're not an illusion," so they're not going to go away. The truth is, they have nowhere to go but up.
