***Smash The Statues***
THEY ARE BACK AND HERE TO STAY! Smash The Statues kicked off in 2003 playing melodic, political hardcore punk. Their first album “Against The Stream” (2006) got positive reviews: “this is the best Dutch punkrecord of the year” (Up Magazine). In 2008 the band released “When Fear Is All Around Us” through Shield Recordings: “the band does everything right” (OOR)
They played big venues like the Melkweg and 013 with bands as Strike Anywhere, Strung Out, Beatsteaks, Propagandhi, Venerea and Modern Life Is War. And they toured Europe extensively.
After a three year break they are ready to hit the stages again, eager to play and packed with a critical view on society and the same horrible sense of humour. They will release a new album at the end of the year.
This up-and-coming orgcore punkrock band from Roosendaal (White Russian Records) are influenced by bands such as The Bronx, The Gaslight Anthem, Red City Radio, The Riot Before and Hot Water Music. So far they have supported Smoke or Fire, Nothington, ASTPAI, PJ Bond, Versus The World, Apologies, i have none and LOWER THAN ATLANTIS... Give 'm a listen, you'll like it!
