Interviews: True Sound (Canada), Daily Hardcore and Praia Hardcore (Brazil)

We’re very happy that Neto and the people at Daily Hardcore took the time to ask us some questions about our trip to Brazil earlier this month. If you’d like to read about our expectations of touring in Brazil, how we experienced our first shows there and what our future plans are, go ahead and check out the interview. Obrigado!

Also, the guys at Praia Hardcore sat down and had a little talk with us in Novo Hamburgo. A talk that involved our musical influences, experiences in Brazil and some more things. You can find that interview below:

Last, but definitely not least, we were asked to have a chat with Seb from True Sound (Montreal, Canada) on the first day of our Americas tour. Check it out below:

Teaming up with Peta2: merch to be won!

We’re very happy to announce that we are cooperating with Peta2 Germany, a subdivision of an organization called People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. They focus mainly on informing young people about vegetarianism, veganism and animal rights. Our cooperation means that we will bring flyers etc. to our German shows that can enlighten you about the benefits of leading an animal-friendly life. On our USA tour, we will also bring some PETA-materials, thanks to Peta USA.

To introduce us to their followers, Peta2 has put up a little interview with us (in German). There’s also a little merch-giveaway where you can win a copy of our new EP and some extra goodies. In good old fashioned German: Ihr könnt fette Merchpakete gewinnen, also ab hier hin!

Bye Five Drive, Hi Next Tour!

We got back from a very awesome tour bringing us to the Groezrock festival, the UK, Queensday in Holland, Just Like Your Mom’s HQ and the traditional Le Havre Mayhem. A lot of thanks to those coming out to our show at Groezrock and the shows we did in the UK and the mainland. Thanks to promoters for organizing and hosting. And thanks to High Five Drive for accompanying us on this trip and making it very worthwhile. A proper tour report will follow later.

Ashes Records, Never Trust an Asshole Zine and Fond of Life Records recently released a sampler featuring one of our songs together with a lot of really great bands. Check those samplers: Ashes Records, Never Trust an Asshole Zine (download zine and sampler) and Fond of Life Records. The Never Trust an Asshole Zine actually includes a recent interview with us.

For our upcoming tour we are still really in need of shows. So far we are going to Germany, Italy, Slovenia, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic and Belgium. If you want to help us out with a date or two we’d be extremely grateful. Even though we are a very frequently touring band, booking never is an easy job and can’t happen with your help. In Antwerp (BEL) we will be playing with Hot Water Music on June 14 and on June 15 we will support Down By Law in Arnhem (NL).
