We set a target for this year about writing new songs, and the surprising news is that we have actually come up with some new stuff. The new songs (there’s 3 of them so far) are still just being rehearsed, but they will be recorded in a few months’ time. And what will they sound like? Well, think of 18 Now.
We’ve also managed to book a gig in Berlin’s coolest venue for September. Life is good.
The video for our most popular punk rock smash hit, Cinderella has just passed the 60K milestone on YouTube. As all of our videos, it’s both up on the Blank TV channel (49,400 views) and on our own YouTube channel (10,650 views), hence the number for the total views.

Our almost legendary punk rock hits are just about to find their way to Alaska. The RadioActive Pit Stop is a weekly one hour Punk Rock radio show on 94.7 The End in Anchorage Alaska, which you can also enjoy as a podcast, thanks to the Internet.

It was in March 1996 that the first line-up of Bankrupt started rehearsing in a school basement. It consisted of Rocco, William, Canadian singer Michael K and Black Peter on drums.

Bankrupt has turned 15 this month.

We still have plenty of unused gigging capacity, so invitations are always welcome! 🙂 Continue reading
