Our new EP will be out next week. It’s called Goodbye Blue Monday, it has 5 new songs and it will be available for free download. The release will be digital only at this point, we may release it on CD later if there’s demand for it. We’ll start publishing the songs one by one here and on Facebook from tomorrow.
Goodbye Blue Monday will be a mixed bag of songs. 3 of them fit perfectly in our punk rock catalog, while we’ll be pushing our boundaries further into guitar pop territory with the remaining two. We’ve worked with 2 different sound engineers, Philipp took care of the vintage punk rock sound, while Jappan polished the guitar pop hits to perfection.
We’ll also release a Hungarian language version of the EP at the same time.
Although we haven’t played any gigs since September, we’ve been busy with other stuff. We have 5 new songs in the pipeline that will be recorded and released as an EP sometime in March if all goes well. 3 out of the 5 songs will satisfy your punk rock needs while with the remaining 2 we’ll experiment more in guitar pop territory. All the songs are at least 2 and a half minutes long, and we’ll record all of them in English and Hungarian as well, so this will be our longest release since Shorter Than Danny DeVito.
At the end of last year we also started looking for a second guitar player. This project is on hold now due to the recording preparations, but we’ll get back to this once the EP is ready. We have a candidate who seems to fit right in, but he’d need to move to Budapest first, which may or may not happen in the near future. We hope it will.
We have also started booking gigs for the spring and summer, the first dates are already up – only Hungary so far, but hopefully we’ll get more invitations soon.
As you may have noticed already, our website has got a new design and looks better than ever. That’s because the new EP is just around the corner. Now you only have to wait a couple of more weeks and you can listen to it as we’ll make it freely downloadable. Its title will be Rewound, and it will feature a cool surf rock intro plus 3 catchy-as-hell smash hits.
Next week we’ll play two gigs, on Friday we’ll return to the amazing Bozak club in Teplice, and on Saturday we’ll play White Trash Fast Food in Berlin, as part of the Berlin Music Week. And we already have a gig in Budapest scheduled for December with our old buddies The Joystix plus the Deleeders from Italy.
It would be cool to play a couple of more gigs in Oct-Nov, so you know, just let us know if you want to book us.
