New album, single, video and party!

We’ll keep this short and sweet as we are shaking with excitement; our new album will be called “Life Is Not Enough”. It’ll have twelve awesome songs, the vinyl version will have thirteen. The blue vinyl is gorgeous as hell and comes with a lyric sheet and download coupon. The CD booklet has all the lyrics so you can sing along, and the disc is printed so it looks like a vinyl record.
It’ll be out on November 21st through White Russian Records. We’ll celebrate it that day too with a free show at AreaFiftyOne in Eindhoven, where our buddies in MARCH and Dead Giveaway will also come and play.
White Russian have launched a pre-order store, where you can buy the new CD and LP or a special shirt we did for the album. There’s some nice bundles available as well, so you can save some money!

To give you all a little taste of what’s to come, we’re releasing a brand new single. “Here They Come Now” will be out on October 30th, both digital (iTunes, Spotify, Deezer and whatever else you can think of) and on an actual CD! “What’s a single without a video” you say? We get that. So below you’ll find the video we shot for “Here They Come Now”. We hope you’ll enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed recording it!

Studio update part 4

In the fourth, and last, studio episode, you’ll get a nice inside look on how we recorded the vocals for our upcoming full length.
You’ll see -and very important; hear- Remco sing one of our new favourites, get to see the crazy guy we had to deal with while recording and we threw in a bunch of celebs to help us create a USA for Africa feel!
Maurice of the awesome dutch punk pop band “Call It Off” is doing some guest vocals, just as Marco Roelofs, who you should all know from fronting “De Heideroosjes” for many many years.

We also invited some friends who you might recognise from acts like Call It Off, Smash The Statues, The 101′s or DJ RookieKahKooh, to come do some gang vocals with us.
Well, grab yourself a coffee or tea, kick back, and enjoy the last video in the series, and learn all about recording vocals. We’ll be back soon with more info on the release of the full album.
Enjoy!
