Music video I Wrote This Song

With less than 2 weeks to go to the release of ENGAGE! we are very excited to present a new music video: I Wrote This Song is the second and last single before the release of ENGAGE!. It’s one of the poppiest songs on the album. The video was shot at De Kube in Nijmegen, directed and edited by Maurice Swinkels of Younique Film and Legion of the Damned.

Pre-order quick if you want to receive ENGAGE! on the release date!

Guest vocals by Thomas from Strike Anywhere

You may have noticed it, but we are extremely excited about our new album “ENGAGE!”. We’re equally excited about its release show though. We have amazing bands accompanying us that day: Such Gold, who are a newer band that is making kick ass records, which we used as influences while creating our new album. And of course Strike Anywhere.

We grew up on Strike Anywhere’s albums and both their music and their lyrics had impact on our lives. We played together more than once, to use an understatement, our paths have crossed all over Europe. All this is reason enough to be excited to have them on our release show. “But there’s more!”

Last October we did a small tour with Thomas (singer of Strike Anywhere) his other band, Great Collapse. It was nice to be out on the road together, hang out on a regular basis. This led to another reason why we’re excited to have Thomas and Strike Anywhere play our release show: Thomas contributed guest vocals for the song “Europe, This Is Your Final Countdown”!

Check the release show event for the song.

Music video Racist Rash!

Finally we can present you music from our new album “ENGAGE!”. And as a bonus you can now pre-order our new album!

“Racist Rash” is the first single from “ENGAGE!” and it seems like a good first representation since there’s quite a few faster songs on the album. The song clearly deals with the racism that is still omnipresent in our culture, sports, traditions, policies, etc. The song clearly deals with the racism that is still omnipresent in our culture, sports, traditions, policies, etc. These days a Dutch celebrity (Sylvana Simons) gets heavily attacked because of her skin color and her anti-racist criticism. These days a “normal” European country like Austria might elect an extreme right President. Racism is not an opinion or an ideology, it’s a crime to be convicted or a disease to be cured at best.

The video was shot (at the famous “Onderbroek”), directed and edited by Harko Wubs, a political film and documentary director and producer, who is active in the field of migration, refugee and border issues.
