Music video “Work Horses vs Show Ponies” and “Perspectives & Objectives” out on tape

Behind the scenes we are working hard on new songs. We hope to record our new album this spring and release it in the fall or winter. But in the mean time this is happening:

Music video “Work Horses vs Show Ponies”

It has been a while since we last posted a tour report. And our last music video came out almost a year ago. So we made a combination of both for “Work Horses vs Show Ponies”. You can check the music video below and while you’re at it, subscribe to our youtube channel to stay up to date. The video was shot during the 150 days on the road after the release of “Perspectives & Objectives”. Footage was shot all over Europe and includes tours with Propagandhi, Ten Foot Pole, ZSK and festivals like Monster Bash.

“Perspectives & Objectives” out as a benefit tape

Somewhere between trying to be hip and realizing that people don’t necessarily buy tapes for the sound quality, we came up with the following idea: we raided our old tape collections to release “Perspectives & Objectives” on recycled tapes. The release is limited to 50 hand numbered tapes. Lyrics, liner notes and a download are included to provide you with a high quality version of the album. But the best part is that since the production of these tapes is low-cost, all proceeds will be donated to Kafka. Kafka is an NGO that keeps track of extreme-right activities and tendencies in the Netherlands. A very noble initiative, but they need money to keep doing what they do.

So this project is 3-in-1: Hip tape, quality download, contributing to a better world for people and environment. What more could one want?

You can place your pre-order here. The release is in cooperation with our friends from Trilob Records (Adhesive, Banquets, In-Sane).

End of tour, new merch!

After a day of seeing summer turn into winter while driving through all of France we are back home. This tour was intense (6.000 KMs for 11 shows) but we are enormously happy about touring down south/west Europe. We had an amazing time and hope to return as soon as our new album is out. Huge thanks go out to all promoters and especially to Outro Shows and Infected Records DIY for booking and arranging everything. And of course to everyone that came out, sang along, danced or clapped their hands! In case anyone has pictures or videos from a show, post it!

For this tour we made new shirts: “Books over Barcelona”. It’s been a while since we had an ash-grey shirt. There are some left overs available in our web shop (S/M/L/XL).
Also, since winter is roaring its freezing head we’d like to re-emphasize that we have warm zipped hoodies available (S/M/L/XL)! And the last couple of Ten Foot Pole shirts …

All at our store

So, now it is finally time to take it a little easier. Touring-wise that is. Because we still have some fun shows lined up the next months (see below) and we can finally get back to working on our new songs.

More about more later!
