Squatting continues! (new song)

Hey everyone, what’s up? We have been laying a little low on our updates, basically because we are working our asses off booking the last dates for our tour with After the Fall, writing new songs and all that.

In the meantime, let us share a new song with you. It is one of the songs that will end up on our new record and it is our first song ever with a Dutch title: “Kraken gaat door”. It is derived from the slogan of the Dutch squatting movement and translates to something along the lines of “squatting continues”. While the Dutch government is working on legislation to make squatting illegal, we think it is more important than ever to point out what benefits we all have from the squatting movement. For example, a lot of popular venues in the Netherlands originated from the squatting movement (Melkweg Amsterdam, Doornroosje Nijmegen to name a few). Somehow people tend to forget this and rather speak of squats in a negative tone..

Well, here goes. This video was shot recently at the Skatefest in Olen (BE), by our friend Tom of Smash the Statues. Enjoy!


(you can skip straight to the song at 1:07 if your Dutch is not too good)

Keep an eye on your e-mail inbox in the next week, as we will be sending out a fine newsletter

Oh, and if you have any options for shows on October 9 or 10, please hit us up!

Oops: apparently, Tom didn’t film this (he’s in the pit somewhere), so it must have been our friend “rental” Thomas. Thanks Noam and Tom for noticing

    Mooi om te lezen dat Tom het heeft gefilmd en dat ik em ook nog in de cirkelpit zie rennen tegelijk! Wat een vent! 😉

    Word, ik zag het zelf ook al. Beetje multitasking is aan mij wel besteed!
