Alright we won’t be doing any “end of the year list” kind of things…. Cause we are “punk” or just lazy, or stupid, or drunk, or we just don’t care…
If you were there in 2017, cool! If you weren’t, cool!
Keep yourself and your loved ones safe people.

THE NEW HARSH REALMS / COMA COMMANDER SPLIT SINGLE!!!
Here is the link to our new 7″ split single… even before it is out on any other digital platform or vinyl release (26th of April) by Shield Recordings & Lost Youth Records:
The link contains 3 new Harsh Realms songs, about beers, girls and motorcycles and 2 songs from our beloved friends from belgium: Coma Commander. The CC songs are about ponies and naked soccer matches, which we think is great!
If you think both DIY bands deserve a bit more attention, feel free to share it with your friends!
Lets get foxy!
As you all may know, our new 7″ split single with the handsome guys in Coma Commander will be out 26th of April. Released by the great people of Lost Youth Records & Shield Recordings. The songs are recorded by Tim Van Doorn at Big Dog Recordings studios!
The very first track of side A ‘Modern Sinners‘ is now captured in a stop motion, lyric video. There’s blood, there are skulls and a donkey! What else do you need beside your milk and cookies this Thursday night?
More news, official video and new shows will be up soon!
Watch our ‘Modern Sinners’ lyric video for once and once for all!

4 years ago we played our first official show. In these 4 years we’ve seen so many places and so many faces. We did so many great things, too much to mention below but lets give it a try:
– opening for our friends in Antillectual a couple of times, was the best start a band could possibly have.
– opening for bands as: The Offspring, Red City Radio, The Flatliners, Off With Their Heads, Smoke or Fire, Versus The World, Teenage Bottlerocket, Nothington, Apologies, i have none, ASTPAI & A Wilhelm Scream to name a few.
– released: 1 full length album together with one of the best record labels around Shield Recordings, 2 singles and many compilation.
– made one video for our single ‘Sink in Time’.
– toured: UK, Germany, Belgium, Austria, Italy & Netherlands several times.
We can’t thank all the people that made the last 4 years a total blast but here you go:
Deny Putman for playing guitar in our first year as a band. White Russian Records for releasing our first single, Nico van Montfort for most of the recordings we did. Gert-Jan de Leeuw & Fieke Houkes for releasing our 1st album. Bonny Somalia, Bob Sacamano for the shows in Germany and the plans for a beach tour which is still under construction. All local bands we had the pleasure of sharing the stage with. All promoters in Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy & the UK!
There’s new music coming, new shows and who knows whats more to come in the next couple of years. One thing is for sure:
We don’t need our heroes
The tide is going to change
Got friends to believe in
As long as they will rise
Coen, Hans, Maarten & Wouter
Time for another blog you say?
Last few months have been amazing. We’ve shared stages with absolute legends; The Copyrights, The Casualties, Typesetter, Cornflames, The Smith Street Band, The Priceduifkes, …
But this next thing is something next level. We will play a sold out 013 with THE OFFSPRING and Good Riddance on June 16th. WellIBeDamned! We never thought this would happen. The press has been kind to us, too. We did interviews with 3FM (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJzyXTPG_P4), 3voor12, BN De Stem..
And as if that wasn’t enough, we we’re asked to support The Flatliners and The Decline on their Amsterdam gig at the Sugarfactory, August 21st. This is madness!
Are there any goals left to accomplish? Maybe Groezrock? We don’t know. Maybe some day… All we know is that this years ‘program-booklet’ had a special announcement (click here to read). Yes, we will record a Split 7″ with Belgian megababes Coma Commander in the near future. Stay tuned for more updates on that one.
Hugs & kisses,
