Army Of Lovers
Swedish dance music group which formed in 1987. They had a number of hits in Europe throughout the 1990s with songs such as "Crucified" (which was number one on the Eurochart for eight consecutive weeks and remains their best known song internationally).
The name of the band alludes to a documentary "Armee der Liebenden oder Revolte der Perversen" about the German gay rights activist Rosa von Praunheim.
1996 and five albums later Alexander Bard disbanded the group to concentrate on his new group Vacuum.
Army of Lovers reformed with Bard, Camilla Henemark and Jean-Pierre Barda in late 2012 to enter the Melodifestivalen 2013 with the song "Rockin' the ride" in hopes of representing Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö. They failed to progress to the final and a few days later issued a press release to announce that Camilla Henemark would be replaced by former member Dominika Peczynski for the remainder of their on-going reunion.
