We are pretty stoked to announce that a coalition of White Russian Records, FunTime Records, No Panic Records and Laserlife Records will be releasing our newest record called “Rise To The Occasion on a 10″. The record contains 4 songs and an etch on the b-side and will be available at our release-show on april 27 at the ACU in Utrecht.
Off course this one’s recorded by our own Nico, artwork by Florian Krijt. You can listen to the first song ‘Billion Dollar Baby’ here:
Two weeks ago we had great fun playing our first show since our comeback. We uploaded two clips from that show which you can check out here.
Max shot the video and Nico did some of his sound-recording-wizardry…Enjoy!
We are happy to announce two shows in Belgium. Dikken bal! On april 6th we will be celebrating our resurrection with our southern neighbours in Leuven. We’ll be playing at the Sojo with Face the Fax, The Ignored and more.
On the 4th of may we will be returning to the bravest of all the Gaul tribes to play the Fortyweight Showcase in the PaNique d’O in Mechelen. We’ll be playing with Off The Charts, Outline and Cheap Drugs. For more details, check here.
It have been 3 long years missing you people. That’s why we’re putting the band back together. Our hearts are still burning, our fingers are itchy and man, our blood is boiling! We’re gonna do our first show at our 10 year anniversary on April 5th at ACU in Utrecht. Oh yeah, we will probably record new stuff this year as well. Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you.
For the official statement, read below:
Nope, we’re not releasing an acoustic EP, we’re gonna quit. After more than 6 years of Smash The Statues, we’ll pull the plug. We’ve tried to get our individual input and ambitions to an equal level, but without succes. Although the decision was hard, it felt right to quit something beautiful instead of continuing something that you don’t feel like doing anymore. We still have some shows scheduled that we will still play, but in January 2010 we will play our final show in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
