1. Karavan are a rock band from northern Sweden. Under the name Astral Bastards the band formed at high school in Boden in the spring of 2002. With mostly positive feedback from our 2 ½ years and almost fifty gigs played the band have every intention of only getting better. Playing lively rock with influences from The Beatles, The Who and the Hives we try to avoid being confined within a genre when song writing. We aim to create groove and soul with our music and playing live is the best way to convey this. Rock´n roll, energy and soul, that's what Karavan are all about.
