Exciting news! On Thursday the 12th of September we’ll be supporting Good Riddance at Melkweg, Amsterdam. From the start of Smash The Statues, Good Riddance has always been a major influence on us with their melodic hardcore punk and with the topics addressed in their lyrics. So yes, we’re super stoked to share the stage with them.
It means that our small weekend tour has gone from 3 shows to 5 shows in 4 days. Check out our shows section for the upcoming shows with Good Riddance, Venerea, This Routine Is Hell and many others. Hope to see you there!
Over 4 years ago we shared the stages with them at the legendary Trashfest and we’re exited to share the stage with them again at the Winston Kingdom in Amsterdam. On August 22 we’ll be playing with Off With Their Heads. Also playing are The Netherlands’ only orgcore band Harsh Realms. Make sure you’re back in time from your holiday in the sun and attend this lovely Hell Yeah Bookings show. Or it will be off with your head. And don’t forget to buy us some sense of humour. Thanks.
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!
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!
Hey Breda, we’ll be playing your town this May and September. On May 3rd, we’ll be playing at 3 Tha Hard Way at ‘De Speeltuin’ together with All On Black and Schelles and on September 14th we’re ripping it at ‘Breda Barst’ together with This Routine Is Hell. We heard both shows are for free. What more do you want? See you there!
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.
Flyer for the reunion-show on april 5th by Florian[/caption]We are proud to announce that Against Time and The 101’s are joining us at our born again show on April 5th at ACU in Utrecht. Against Time, who disbanded in 2003 have recently played some shows and we are thrilled to have them play at our show. The 101’s are one of The Netherlands most promising punkrock bands and will show that to everyone who is attending this killer show!
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.
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.
