With their main band Mando Diao on hiatus, vocalists and guitarists Björn Dixgård and Gustaf Norén have plenty of time to pursue other musical endeavors. Their side project Caligola is a network of artists including Swedish hip-hop producers Masse and Salla Salazar (members of the Latin Kings and producers of the Mando Diao album Give Me Fire!), singer Agnes Carlsson, Johnossi drummer Oskar Bonde, reggae musician Nutty Silver, and German DJ Paul van Dyk. On its 2012 album Back to Earth, the collective mixes numerous genres such as rock, pop, disco, soul, hip-hop, and funk. The record features the Diao-like single "Forgive Forget" and entered the German album charts at number ten.
