Shred Fest & Fresh Merch

After a false start last fall live events are really back this time! We can finally reveal the new festival we’ve been hinting at: SHRED FEST, a combination of music and skating! And there’s a pre-order for great looking new shirts and sweaters:

New merch designs

Fresh Merch

With shows on the way we wanted to make new merch. We made a poll and people picked the Bijstand mural design by Mike Nicolaassen. You can pre-order a shirt, crewneck or zipper with an album of choice! We have all items in 3 color options (black/navy/burgundy) and a wide range of sizes available for pre-order only! Pre-orders are up until Sunday Feb 27, orders will be sent out at the beginning of April.

Unfortunately our financial reserves have vanished during the pandemic, this is the ultimate way to support us. Thank you for helping us out this way; it means the world to us, and makes new recordings possible(!)

Shred Fest, April 2nd in Waalhalla Nijmegen

Shred Fest

When Friends First Fest #6 got postponed to Dec 2022 we wanted to do “something” as soon as measures would allow it. SHRED FEST is our impromptu festival happening at skate park Waalhalla in Nijmegen on April 2nd. Combining a rad line-up (announcement soon!) with skate demos, contests, jams and food! You heard the announcement here first, keep an eye on our social media or the FB event for updates! Bring your board / bmx / blades / scooter kid or borrow some gear from Waalhalla and come SHRED with us!

Videos of the deconstruction of 'I Wrote This Song'

Deconstructing I WROTE THIS SONG

To kill the downtime we’ve been doing all sorts of pandemic projects: a drum chronology, acoustic shows and covers. The latest (and hopefully the last) one is a series about the deconstruction of I WROTE THIS SONG. The first 3 episodes give a peek at our songwriting process through demos, instrumentation breakdowns, the song’s structure and music that inspired the songwriting. Subscribe to our Youtube channel for new episodes!

09 July 2019 ~ Comments Off on If You’re Not Outraged

If You’re Not Outraged

Today we bring you the 4th edition of our singles series: If You’re Not Outraged! An energetic, urgent track with an anti-fascist message. Critical times still call for critical culture!

Artwork If You're Not Outraged

Extreme right wing ideologies are growing. Alt-right, identitarian movements and populism are proof that the far right wing is on the rise again. Just to be clear: we think that’s a bad thing. As a result the anti-fascist (re)action and movement is growing too. Just to be clear: we think that’s a good thing. Anti-fascism is not a crime!

Check this special page for If You’re Not Outraged via all platforms (Spotify, Youtube, Bandcamp, etc), the lyrics and liner notes. Join us for a Q&A about our new single today (Tuesday, July 9) at 20h00 CET on our Youtube channel.

Video If You're Not Outraged

This is the first release from our recording session with Tim van Doorn at Big Dog Recordings in Antwerp, Belgium, more to come! Mastering by Nico van Montfort at XPZ Sound. The music video is created by Bram Bergs. Single artwork by Ruben Swieringa.

Merch

To have appropriate new merch our friend Thomas at Dark Roast adapted a picture of a demonstration by the Neo-Nazi Nordic Reich Party in Växjö, Sweden in April 1985. A Polish-Swedish passerby (whose mother had been sent to Auschwitz) could no longer resist swinging her handbag at the nazis. FairTradeMerch made beautiful organic, fair-trade and vegan shirts of the design. Orders come with free downloads of all our singles, and you can still get older merch with a discount if you use NEWSLETTER25 as coupon code!
