The band Roulette was formed in 1985 in Sundsvall, Sweden. All the guys had been in previus bands with Hansi Fellbrink ex. Overload, Lundgren and Nesslin, Red Skies and the Nelin brothers The Kaza 5 young guys who had found each other, “clicked” and started to rehearse songs and play “live” at rock clubs and festivals around Sweden. They became one of the most popular bands in their hometown and had a couple of hits on the local radiostations.The year after they took part in the competition POP -86 where they went to the final at Hard Rock Café / Stockholm. In the jury was Tommy Nilsson from Easy Action and Kee Marcello from Europe! In 1987 the sign a record deal with TAB Records and released their first singel “Hearts Keep On Burning” with Tommy Nilsson on backing vocals!! The second singel was released in 1988 called “Fool for your love”, and a video was made to promote that singel. In this period Roulette performed on a lot of Swedish TV-shows like “Top Gear”/Nordic Channel, “Night Life”/TV 3 and “Metropol”/SVT. In 1990, influenced by their prospective label, they changed their name to Cherry Red and won a record deal with CBS. They started to record their first full length album at Stockholm Recording with producer Per Blom, but the album became just a single called “Only The Strong” and was released on CBS subsidiary label, Cupol Records. In the beginning of 2008 they were contacted by the record label AOR-FM, and they released a limited 17 song best-of album with Roulette singles/demos, called ”Better Late Than Never”. It was a huge success, got great reviews and sold out the Limited Edition 1000 ex, in only a couple of months.

In 2010 record label YesterRock released their own version of ”Better Late Than Never”, with 2 new other demo songs. After that some of the original band-members played with different cover-bands, and starting to write songs with other bands in Sweden. But in the end of 2013, bass player Hansi wrote a new song called ”Secret Room”, and he asked Thomas the singer if he liked it. He did, so they started to meet up writing new material again with the guitarist Magnus and drummer Mats. Roulette recorded three new singles in Boxroom Production Studios with one of Swedens most recommended producers Chris Rehn (Angtoria, Takida, Dreamstate, Corroded, Stiftelsen.), ”Secret Room” 2015, ”Right By Your Side” 2016 and ”The Only WaY” 2017 and released it on their own label and produced music videos to every one of the new song. And now the fans starting to catch up with the band again, all around the world. Roulette is back with better songs than ever before. Thanks to this respons, the band made a decision in January 2018 to record a new album with newly written songs. In October 2018, Roulette signs an contract with Black Lodge/ Sound Pollution and on Mars 22, the bands new album NOW! is released!
