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.

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.
