Release update “Perspectives & Objectives” – August 23rd

On August 23rd we will release our new album “Perspectives & Objectives”. After announcing all those amazing summer shows prior to the release, we thought it is about time to inform you a bit more about this album.

Like we did with our previous album we will stream all songs before the official release date. One by one, week per week: the first song will be up on June 21st. That date we also start taking pre-orders for albums (CDs and LPs). Pre-orders will be limited packages, including nice goodies and you will receive a stream of the new album immediately after placing your pre-order. Definitely the way to get your hands on the new stuff first.

The artwork more or less speaks for itself. It is once again done by David Finke from FairTradeMerch, the picture is taken by Christian Pankratz.

The album will feature 10 songs:

1. Soundtrack
2. Welcome to Le Jungle
3. With Gaga on Our Side
4. Work Horses vs Show Ponies
5. Pink Print
6. To All Members of Parliament
7. Future History
8. Bullies
9. Mother Inferior
10. Books

Of course we are not alone in this. So far the following labels have confirmed cooperating on this release:

Suburban Records (Benelux)
Destiny Records (Germany, Austria, Switzerland)
No Reason Records (Italy)
Angry Chuck Records (Russia)
Undermusic Records (South America)
Destroy It Yourself (Portugal)
Lockjaw Records (United Kingdom)
5FeetUnder Records (Scandinavia)
Effervescence Records (France)

To celebrate our new baby we will throw a nice release festival in our hometown Nijmegen on August 23rd. It’s going to be a cool festival at Doornroosje with Just Like Your Mom providing vegan food, Typewriter Distro providing mental weapons (books that is) and Shield Recordings providing physical music. Nijmegen is only 5 km away from the German border, so there’s no reason not to cross it! Oh, and there are also bands playing:
- Lawine (Yvo is our old bass player, this is his new band)
- Dead Giveaway (Koen filled in on bass for us in 2011. This is his new band with Riekus on drums)
- 3 more TBA (including more former bass players)
