D-beat raw punk never die


So we're back from our Mangeling for freedom pt.2 tour. And what a blast it was! Excellent shows, great people, good food and awesome events. Really looking forward to go back again sometime! A big thanks to all the people involved in making our trip to what it was, all the organisers, volunteers, people who made us food, gave us drinks, gave us sleeping places and let us play.

The new record is almost finished and it sounds pretty amazing. We're really satisfied with it and proud of the time and effort everyone involved have put in to it. Keep your eyes and ears peeled, hopefully it won't take too long at the vinyl pressing plant.

We've got two new shows coming up, one in Malmö the 20th of May together with Antlers, where we haven't play since our release party at the beginning of last year. And another one in Helsingør, Denmark together with Ahna the 29th of May! Hope to see you there!

Upcoming gigs:

20 MAY - SWE Malmö, Harem, w/ Antlers

29 MAY - DNK Helsingør, Elværket, w/ AHNA

2014 is fucking dead!


So 2014 was the year nazis tried to kill our comrades, right-winged assholes got elected into the Swedish government, cops held them in a tight mother-like cradle showing their true colors (again), while sending cavalry rushes trough masses of protestors, beggars got slandered, mosques attacked and refugee camps set on fire. All just a fraction of events through out the year. But most ridiculous is that it would seem the only solution to this is more surveillance, more cops and army training camps against poor people?
   2014 was also a fantastic year where we toured a lot, met tones of amazing people, played with rad bands at cool spaces kept alive by people who refuse to back down. Demos and protests are being organized, new bands are being formed due to anger and a feeling of that something needs to be done. We say 2014 Is Fucking Dead, keep together and keep the fire burning! Never ending resistance! Still mangeling for Freedom. A//E

Mangeling for freedom

So we're back in Sweden again. England got mangeled and we've played our last couple of shows for the year. Thanks a million to our eminent driver Charlie and Irena for taking care of us and stirring up chaos. And cheers to all the organisers, volunteers, bands and crowds for making our trip a memorable one. Hope to see you all soon again. Well be in our practice space finishing our new album for the time being. All the best. A//E /Crutches #mangelingforfreedom

Deluge and a small tour.


So, this month started of with a big bang.. or should I say gush?
90mm. of rain in just a couple of hours, Malmö got wet as hell! Which filled our rehearsal space along with many of our friends spaces. Sucks big time! And some people say it's not a climate issue to discuss. Well...

It might be holding us back for a week or two. But we cleared our space out and I don't think it's ever been this clean. haha.

Last weekend we headed over to France for the ABC benefit fest and did a show in Hannover and one in Bremen. We had a fucking blast! Thank you all for organising and showing up in support of DIY punk. Showing that commercial attitudes and gentrification can go to hell!

Now we're having a bit of a break from touring and are focusing on writing some new stuff for the upcoming album. See you in England for our tour over there in October! So stoked!

Here's an interview Periferia zine did with us a while back. It's in Czech, but still!
