Asta Kask is a punk band from Töreboda[4][5][6][7], Sweden. It was founded as "X-tas" in 1978[8][9][10][11], but changed to Asta Kask in 1980.[12] In 1984 the band started working with Rosa Honung Records. After the 1986 release of the "Aldrig en LP" the band split up.[13][14] In 1989 the band was reunited and played a few gigs, but then went dormant until 1992 when they played at Rosa Honung's tenth anniversary. Then the band went quiet again until 2003 when they started touring again as a "revenge" for all the unfairness they've been put through. The drummer, Bjurre, quit the band in late 2004, and was replaced by Dadde (of Wolfbrigade). During 2005 a conflict with Rosa Honung that had been growing for many years reached a point where the band could no longer work with the label so they signed a deal with Burning Heart Records. In April 2006, Asta Kask recorded their first new album in 20 years. In 2013 the band released the album "Handen På Hjärtat" on their new record label.

Despite the fact that they sing in Swedish the band have gained international reputation and their songs have been covered by bands from three continents. The German punk rock band Rasta Knast started as a tribute band to Asta Kask. [1]
