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”!
