About Nogu Svelo!
Nogu Svelo! was founded in the early 90s by Maxim Pokrovsky, the lead singer of Ukrainian-Russian origin. While some of their albums include English lyrics, the majority of their work is in Russian. The band won MTV Russia awards in 2006 for year's best soundtrack. They had many overseas tours and festivals around the globe. While originally from Moscow, the band has relocated to the US and no longer performs in Russia for political reasons.
Maxim Pokrovsky, the band’s leader and veteran rocker, is an outspoken critic of Russia’s war on Ukraine. Like many Russians, he left the country after the Russian government began tightening the screws on freedom of expression. After moving to New York, Pokrovsky faced political pressure and tour cancellations in Russia because of his open support of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
In March 2023, Pokrovsky was sued by the Russian authorities under the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation for the public actions aimed at discrediting the use of the armed forces of Russia. In his interview to Current Time TV, he explained that the charge was linked to the band’s first anti-war music video "We Don't Need War".
The band has recently announced the release of their new single "Prison Romance".
For the upcoming concerts, the band is putting together a special program consisting of their major hits and new anti-war singles, including "Letter Z", "Generation Z", "Russia, Go Home!", "Ukraine", "The Anthem of the Doomed", "Happy New Year, Son!".
