We are not one to break traditions and we are suckers for lists – so here’s our annual “best albums of the year” list!
We’ve put it all into one handy Spotify playlist, which you can find here or at the bottom.
The individual lists of everyone (curious if Wouter has put even more metal in it than last year? Or wanna see if Remco once again picked a non-punkrock album that the rest doesn’t have in their list at all as number one?) can be found by clicking the “read more” button below.
Turn up the volume and enjoy this list. We know we will.
01. Der Weg Einer Freiheit – Finisterre
02. Wiegedood – De Doden Hebben Het Goed II
03. The National – Sleep Well Beast
04. Crusades – This Is A Sickness And Sickness Will End
05. The Menzingers – After The Party
06. Amenra – Mass VI
07. Nothington – In The End
08. Jade Jackson – Gilded
09. Call It Off – Abandoned
10. Brand New – Science Fiction
We might not have a new album yet, but we are featured on some new albums!
Our label White Russian Records released a lovely compilation with 18 tracks, featuring I Against I, Travoltas, March and many more awesome bands. Our song “Here They Come Now” is featured on there.
Give it a play on Spotify (or Deezer, Apple Music, Bandcamp or whatever you’re a fan of) below.
Another compilation surfaced too: KROD records created a playlist called “Dutch Me Tender” filled with the best Dutch punkrock! There’s us and awesome other bands like Antillectual, The 101’s, Tusky, Call It Off and many more. Definitely worth checking out (Playlist below. How convenient!)
Happy 10th birthday to our debut EP “The Lady’s First Song”!
Below is a -for that time very HD- video of us recording it at BigMouth Music Nijmegen.
Some fun facts on the EP?
We threw an awesome releaseparty for this one at Plein79 in Den Bosch, where our good friends of Discourse Avenue opened the evening with an intense set. We didn’t get a cake.
The album title is taken from a W.B. Yeats poem, of which you can find a part under the tray.
The album was recorded as a four piece, but Guy joined the band shortly before we released the CD.
The song title “Love For Fire” was taken from the Alkaline Trio song “This Could Be Love”.
“Tomorrow Starts Where Sorrow Ends” used to be the opener to our set for years. The track was also featured on the CD sampler that came with Up Magazine years ago.
“Mrs. Insane” was entered at a MySpace competition by EA SPORTS (thanks to whoever did that!) and we won. We got invited to their head office in the Netherlands, got some free games and an Epiphone Les Paul Custom. Sweet!
