Latest News January 2021

Dear punks, beloved friends,

how is everyone doin? I hope y´all still hangin in there! Can not offer
you much comforting words these days BUT at least we got some new stuff
coming up that might brighten your mood a little...

we worked on a new release with the emo/ screamo fanatics from zegama
beach records and middle man records, whose shawn decker is once again
involved in what i would call the least fastest and most melodic
recordings i really grown to love since a long time. LACRIMA consists of
people known for their passion when it comes to intense emotional music
and created a 7inch that would fit right in with the great ones in the
early 2000s, like RAEIN, LA QUIETE or FUNERAL DINER. Here is a video of
one of the songs here or on facebook. This is ready for preorder now and will
be shipped in about two weeks!

The PIRI REIS LP is beeing pressed as i write this. Hopefully this will
see the light of day in early april .. co released with moment of
collapse and zegama beach records.

As most of you probably already expected – this years CRY ME A RIVER
FEST will be postponed once again. We do just not see how we should plan
this, especially since there are so many international friends and bands
involved who we want to have the change to be part of it. As last year
we offer you:

* to keep your reservation spot for next year,

* get your money back

* donate money for people / bands / diy projects in need

if we dont hear from you – we just keep you on the reservation list. As
last year – people who donate money will be added to a priority list for
next years fest spots...

wish you all the best, stay healthy and take care!
