19 April 2012 ~ Comments Off on Transatlantic tour and fresh old releases

Transatlantic tour and fresh old releases

While it may seem that we are laying low (our last tour was in December) we are actually planning more than ever: tours, releases and new recordings!

  • Fest 11 + USA Tour
  • Re-releases “Start From Scratch!” and “Testimony”
  • Pre-production recordings and EP
  • New zippers and shirts

Fest 11 + USA Tour

Can we get a drum roll please? The biggest and best news by far is the tour that we have planned for October and November. After 4 years of absence, we will finally return on American soil. We have been confirmed to play the almighty Fest 11 in Gainesville, and we will be touring the USA on our way down to Fest. Details to be confirmed.

Re-releases “Start From Scratch!” and “Testimony”

Since all LPs of “Start From Scratch!” and all CDs and LPs of “Testimony” are out of stock, we decided to run a second pressing of both albums together with our friends at Shield Recordings. The 350 gatefold LPs of “Start From Scratch!” will be “seein’ red” and “Testimony” will see a reincarnation of 250 LPs in the “grey area”. The 500 “Testimony” CDs will be a jewel case edition.

Pre-production recordings and EP

Having written half a new album already, we decided to book some studio dates. In May we will record these songs to prepare ourselves for the recordings of our fourth full length album next winter. 2 of those new songs will end up on an EP which will be released later this year. Details to be confirmed.

New zippers and shirts

No re-release here! Freshly designed zipped hoodies and T-shirts! Stay up to date and support us by ordering a shirt, zipper, a repressed album or a nice package of shirt+album.

Shirts have the King Kong print on the front. A limited amount of these shirts, with a red and black print on white, will be sold by Fairtrademerch at this year’s Groezrock Festival. Speaking of Groezrock: make sure to stop by Shield Recordings and No Reason Records on the market, and treat yourself to one of Mom’s Veggie Burgers.

Out of the studio

Last Thursday we finished recording our new album. We recorded the drums, bass, guitars and vocals for 12 songs for our new album which will be called “START FROM SCRATCH!”. Honestly we are really happy with the result so far. Now it is up to Nico van Montfort to mix and master it into heaven. While recording we shot some more video footage, enjoy:

A track list will be posted in the near future. There is no release date set for the new album yet. We will upload a song to give you an impression as soon as everything is mastered.

On another note; in April and May we will be touring together with the guys from High Five Drive from Canada. We will hit the UK, France, Belgium and Holland. Check the dates . After that we will travel through a bigger part of Europe at the end of May and June. Again, check the dates at the shows section.

In between studio days

Last week we spent in the studio tracking guitars and vocals. Things actually get in shape pretty nice, if I may say so. Next week we will be finishing some more guitars (rhythm, lead, acoustic), vocals (lead, backing, guest) and do some more additional percussion. You can still check out a little video report we did here. More frequent updates are sent out to “followers“, “fans” and other “BFF’s“.

The new album will feature a song called “Kraken gaat door!” which translates to “Squatting continues!”. This is a song against the to be implemented anti-squatting law in the Netherlands. I know a lot of bands, their audience, artists, students and other people benefit from squatting, so we oppose forbidding it. In case you are a musician (or audience member?) yourself and you want to contribute your voice against this law, please go here and leave your message. We’ve signed it and hopefully you will too! Kraken gaat door!
