State of mind

Soooo, PØLP was released six weeks ago. We’d like to thank everyone for streaming, buying and sharing! We hope you like it!

The pink vinyl is almost sold out, as well as the cassette tapes. So if you want one of those, hurry to our webstore. Because we’re cheap bastards and don’t want to pay for our Bigcartel page, the store is not perfect. If you think you’re paying too much for shipping costs, please send us a message. We’ll sort something out.

We want to thank each and everyone for the (mostly) positive feedback. We really appreciate it. Below the reviews of PØLP we’ve seen so far. Some very positive, some a bit less positive. It’s all about opinions.. But we’re happy to see that most people seem to like our album:

Rock XXL (9/10) (BE)
SWNK (90/100)
Underdog Fanzine (DE)
Mass Movement (UK) (70/100)
Out Of Step HC (BE) (8.5/10)
Lords Of Metal (74/100)

Meanwhile, we’ve been playing awesome shows at BoemTikFest, Heerhugowaard, Brute Boul, Paderborn, Essen and Aachen with some of the best bands; like When There Is None, White Hand Gibbon, Starry, Modern Saints, Resolutions, LateGeneration, March, Screw Houston, and many more.

Our next shows will be in Wageningen, Middelburg and Weinheim. And we’ll be announcing a short European tour soon. Keep checking our shows page for more info.
Life is good!

Take care,
– The Realms

P.S. did you know that we’re an Instagram band now? Facebook has been fucking with us for too long, but we’ll try to update that page as well.. sometimes..

We are proud to announce that we are officially joining the Shield Recordings family to release our very first full length LP/CD called PØLP.

The release will contain 11 tracks that we recorded with the greatest campingbøss of the Dutch punkrock scene: Nico van Montfort. Nico also mixed the thing.
The mastering was done by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering, New Jersey, USA. He’s known for bands such as I Am The Avalanche, Make Do And Mend, Daylight, Tigers Jaw and The Wonder Years.

The artwork was done by Tyler Gibson at Doom Toof Design. So far he has done artwork for bands like Banner Pilot, Notington and Elway. So we are pretty stoked to be working with him!

The release is scheduled for October 1st and will be followed with a bunch of shows.

You can pre-order the vinyl or cd versions soon through

We are happy that we will be working with a great label that released records for bands like: Antillectual, The Real Danger, the Road Home, Make Do and Mend, Tim VanTol, Astpai, Sweet Empire, This Routine Is Hell, Accelerators, PJ Bond, Ducking Punches, and many more.

So it’s onwards that we go!

04. To Be Honest
05. In Need Of Guidance
06. I The Cause
