about

Recent events have revived the age-old belief that you can achieve more together than alone. This goes for both global events, the music industry and the way we deal with our band.

Climate change, #MeToo, Black Lives Matter, the Covid pandemic and the war in Ukraine are the most important issues we’ve been facing on a global level lately. Each of these can only be solved by taking action together. We can’t stop global warming unless a great majority of the people is involved. A dissonant relation between gender types can only be restored if all support a healthy balance. Disadvantaged groups in our population can only get the right amount of respect if people outside those groups recognize the value of treating others with dignity; if both groups decide to tackle this problem together. And only together countries can fight an invasion of another country.

The current situation in the music industry in general and the punk scene in particular forces people to work together as well. The traditional roles of bands/musicians/labels/distributors/bookers are fading, if they ever were clearly distinguished in the DIY scene at all. Social and personal media have been taking over the role of mainstream media. The democratization of the musical landscape has created an opportunity that can be both a blessing and a curse. Bands can only spread their word and music together with partners and supporters, instead of via just one major label.

Since 2018 we have been releasing individual songs as singles. We didn’t feel like creating a new album in the traditional way. Now that we have recorded and released a bunch of songs we feel like putting them together so people can enjoy them the best way possible! We have never really released music the standard way, and this album is probably our most unconventional release to date. We hope to spread this release together with you!

DO IT TOGETHER! Team work makes the dream work!

lyrics

How did we get to this point? Who got us into this mess?
No one to blame but ourselves and the way we progress

We’ve been cutting ties, pursuing independency
We’ve been telling lies, inflating individuality

These strategies are useless in the end
It’s better to start looking for a friend

Together
Is the only way to make things better
Is the only way to help each other (out)

It is a chain reaction, let’s embrace our dependency
It is a call for action, give up soloist tendencies

It’s better to start looking for a hand

‘Cause we are the people, populists are not
Fighting the fever, it’s getting too hot
What matters is profit, the people do not
Fighting the fascists, will get you shot
Supporting the movement, sing them a song
Othering people, right versus wrong
Divided minorities, tagging along
Caring for all those, reacting so strong

We can only get ahead if we stick together

I’m finding out what matters in the end
It’s better to start looking for a hand
