Coup d’etat time!

The western world objects democratic elected leaders if they don’t match their politics, but today in The Netherlands there are millions of idiots wearing orange and celebrating our new king, born to be the new head of state. Can somebody call the United Nations Security Council we’re under attack? Thanks! Better news: we will be playing two shows with Venerea and The Ignored on September 13th in Ieper, Belgium and September 15th, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. First hometown Nijmegen show in three and a half years!
