Bankrupt: Veronica – Free download (320K mp3)

Here’s the second track off the coming Goodbye Blue Monday EP, a Ramones-influenced tune about fatherhood. The Ramones never had kids, so they couldn’t have written a song like this. We did.

Get Ready for the New EP!

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. playcount passes 100K

Today we have passed the magic 100K playcount milestone on, meaning people on have listened to Bankrupt songs over 100,000 times so far.
Our most popular release is by far Shorter Than Danny DeVito, which accounts for over half of the playcount with 52,683 scrobbles, and it features the 2 most popular Bankrupt songs, Record Store Renegade (19,237) and 18 Now (11,478).


January Status Info

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.
