After recording, mixing and mastering our new album in February, March and April, attracting labels to help release it up to now, time has come to announce our new album and promote the SHIT out of it. From today you will be able to listen to the new stuff!
As of today you can listen to the new songs on our website. Every Monday we will post a new song accompanied by the lyrics and liner notes. On top of that we will post a contribution to each song from people that helped recording the record, wrote songs, did guest vocals, designed the artwork; but also from people who helped the band the last couple of years: supporting us on tours, behind the scenes or on stage. Go to our site, listen to “Every Crisis Is a Moral Crisis” and read what Greg from High Five Drive wrote about it. Below you can find the track list.
01 Every Crisis Is a Moral Crisis 02 Buyer's Remorse 03 The Hunt Is On 04 America’s Worst Role Model 05 Cut the Ground from under Our Feet 06 "Kraken gaat door!" 07 Some of My Best Friends Are Meat Eaters 08 Chinese Takeover 09 Our Hearts 10 The New Jew 11 Classic Themes Never Get Old 12 So Much More
The official release of “Start From Scratch!” is planned for November 1st, pre-orders being taken before that date. For the release we will be getting help from several labels throughout Europe and the USA. More labels to be announced soon. From now on these are our best friends:
