Say Cheese! compilation

‘Punk is dead’ is a saying often heard. That’s not true, at least in Holland it is not. To prove the Dutch punk is vibrant and alive non-profit label North Empire will release an online compilation called 'Say Cheese!'

This compilation features 18 Dutch punk rock bands, each contributing one song. Varying from established to upcoming bands, every single one of them hardworking and delivering top quality songs. Making it obvious the Dutch punk scene is alive, varied, and offering a lot of great music to listen to.

Because punk is known as a socially concerned genre all the revenue made with this compilation will go to a good cause. Wakker Dier in this case, a Dutch organization fighting for the welfare of animals in the bio industry. Please help out when you download the compilation.

The compilation is available on a ‘pay what you want’ basis via: http://northempire.bandcamp.com

In-store show and...a review

This Saturday we will be playing an in-store acoustic set (some songs) at the Etnies store on Damrak, Amsterdam. Hope to see you there at 2pm. This will be with Versus The World.
Both bands will be playing the Winston that evening alongside the great Cobra Skulls. Hope to see you there as well, this time at 8:30pm.

Also, we've been just been told there is another review of 'This Season Needs Torches' somewhere on the web, on FrostClick to be precise. It's a pretty positive one.
Have a read!

Compilation and magazine feature

Our song "On Fake Borders" has been featured on an American compilation CD which has been released to support the making of a documentary called "Tikkun Olam". This documentary will be about the relation between Judaism, punk rock, and radical politics.
We'd like to thank Matt for putting us on the compilation and we wish him the best of luck with the documentary. We're looking forward to seeing the end result.
You can download the compilation or order a copy (incl. zine!) over here.
Read more on the documentary here.
Also check out their associate website PunkCDSampler.com.

Besides this great news we've also been featured in Proefdiervrij's magazine. Proefdiervrij is a Dutch organization which fights against testing on animals.
We played a festival last February which had 'science' as the main theme. We thought it would be a nice idea to get Proefdiervrij some attention, and so we did. They supplied us with promotional material and even gave us some awesome shirts! Besides talking about the good cause we asked people at the show for a donation and ended up raising €135. Thanks so much to the people who donated! We are happy we could help out Proefdiervrij, and what they stand for, by doing this show.
