Dutch ENGAGE tour
To end the year we will play a couple of shows in our own country, something
we don’t do very often. We’re happy to go north, west, south and east and play
with local heroes and special guests everywhere! To end the “Dutch ENGAGE
tour” we will celebrate our homecoming at Friends First Fest in our hometown
Nijmegen, something we only do once a year! For all these shows we’ll bring
new merch and new covers!
We haven’t figured out yet what colors will be in fashion next winter,
therefor we offer you “Custom ENGAGE Pre-orders”! For those of you that asked
us if we have the ENGAGE merch in format X, size X and/or color X: you can now
create your own unique custom combination! Choose your preferences and we will
make it happen! Pre-orders close November 25, items will ship December 9.
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”!
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.
As of today you can pre-order our new album. We created some fun bundles for you:
The “artwork flag” is a 1x1m full color bisonyl flag with the album artwork printed on it.
“Antillecu-Ale beer” is a limited edition beer by breweries Katjelam and De Gifbeker in celebration of our new album. A tasty beer based on the Netherlands’ best and most organic beer, Germany’s most energizing soft drink and nature’s best remedy to vocal troubles. Proceeds will go to Viva Con Agua, an organization from St Pauli in Hamburg improving drinking water supply in developing countries. The stock is like a beer in your hand: while supplies last.
