Art Nation was founded by singer and frontman Alexander Strandell in 2014 and have since then worked really hard towards breaking out on the National and International music scene.
During 2014 they released their second single "One is Better than No One", which was the official charity song for Medicins sans Frontieres (Läkare utan gränser). The release of this song launched the writing of their debut album "Revolution" which was released in 2015.
After the album was released, success was knocking at their door. They were nominated for "Swedish breakthrough of the year" by GAFFA, placed on "Best this year" in AFTONBLADET and "Best album of the year" by Powerplay.
This time they have been selected to write the Official Gothia Cup song 2016. The song is called "We Are Better Together" which they have written themselves and are performing at the premier of Gothia at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenburg.

Rob da Bank says:
“I’m not sure if there’s an emoji for ‘wetting yourself laughing’ yet but we need one for the Chuckle Brothers. I booked them as a bit of a laugh last year but they drew one of the biggest crowds of the weekend and had to do about 1000 selfies afterwards for some rabid fans. I’m still not sure I understand it all but i do love ‘em, and had to get them for all of our shows this year!”
Paul Chuckle says:
“Thanks for this great tribute but I have to say our time at Bestival last September was one of the best days we've ever had. We've done and appeared in many things including the Children's Royal Variety show, but can honestly say this matched anything. The day was amazing and we can't wait to do it all again this year. Great crowd, great guys to work with all round, and memories that will last for ever. See you all soon.
“PS. Can't wait”.
One of the country’s best loved double acts, The Chuckle Brothers are the premier slapstick team that kept generations of kids entertained with perfectly timed pratfalls in 22 series of their acclaimed ChuckleVision television show. Launching the catchphrases “to me, to you” and “oh dear, oh dear” into common parlance, their influence on youth culture shouldn’t be underestimated.
They’re a canny pair too, as well as getting in on the current grime revival right from the word go with ‘To Me, To You (Bruv)’ their collaboration with Tinchy Stryder, last year also saw the pair make their festival debut at Bestival in front of 14,000 people. We like to think we know a thing or two about festivals after 12 years out in the fields, but we can honestly say that the crowd reaction to the Chuckle Brothers was utterly astonishing, to say the least. What can only be described as unbridled joy filled the Big Top and a huge outpouring of emotion from the capacity crowd turned their 15-minute slot into one of the highlights of any Bestival. Ever.
And so, in celebration of their much-anticipated appearances this year, at not only Bestival but also Camp Bestival and Common People, 5th May has been declared 'Chuckle Brothers’ Day'. Join us in a gleeful celebration of a truly influential comedy duo who we think are criminally unsung. Take to the streets proclaiming ‘TO ME, TO YOU’ with all your heart, and make sure you honour Chuckle Brothers’ Day with some DIY slapstick fun.

Bestival Party – Bussey Building, London – 6th May
Common People – Southampton & Oxford 28th & 29th May www.commonpeople.net
Camp Bestival – Lulworth Castle Dorset – 28th – 31st July www.campbestival.net
