‘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
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!
Emma, who made our design for our new merch, has posted a lovely story about how she made it. We are still blown away by the result. Have a read here and be sure to check out her other work too. Thanks lots Emma!
