Now this is something we're VERY excited about! On April the 27th we're going to play a show with our best friends, UPRIGHT, and one of the greatest hardcore bands ever: the CRO-MAGS. Their European tour consists of only 8 shows, with only two shows in Scandinavia. The show will happen at Kuudes Linja, Helsinki. I think the venue can hold like 300-400 people inside, so it's certainly gonna be pretty intense. Get your tickets from the link below, 'cause this will most likely sell out. And you don't want to miss this. This will be a night to remember.

Tickets: 27.4.2014 Kuudes Linja, Helsinki: CRO-MAGS (USA), TOTAL RECALL, UPRIGHT. 22e + postages. K18.

Jumping the gun for 2014

Hello everyone.

We said we wouldn't play any more shows this year, but it seems like the urge to get back on stage is getting way too big to handle for all of us, so.. This is what's going to happen:

On December the 7th we're playing this crossover-show at our hometown Jyväskylä. It will be the afterparty for a skateboarding competition that will happen at the local indoor skatepark earlier the same day. The bill has the heshers of Baltimor, a bunch of rappers, a DJ, us and maybe something else too on stage. If you're interested in knowing what the next album is gonna sound like, you should attend, since our setlist will focus on the new material. If you're a skater, take part in the competition and you'll have free entrance for the show.

For more info about the show and the venue, visit

6/0e, ALL AGES

So yeah, after this we're back in business. If you'd like to have us play at your town, party or venue, get in touch. We would like to get to places and cities we haven't been before - if you think you could help us with that, please do.

The LP is in the works and our goal is to get it out before summer. If you have a label and would be interested in releasing it, contact us. We're still broke as fuck.

Stay tuned,

This is not a "we're breaking up" -statement

Time for some news. A few weeks ago we played at Lepakkomies and had a killer time. Thanks to everyone who showed up and especially the organizer Manu and the ones who attended the pit and bought some merch. We're really broke so every euro meant a lot (a liner note: we do ship our merch outside Finland as well, in case you didn't know, haha) - thanks a million! I heard someone shot some video footage of the show, maybe it'll end up somewhere in the internet, I don't know. Hope so.

As for shows in general: we decided to take a break from doing them. At least till the end of this year. Today our drummer Aki started his personal journey on "becoming a man" in the finnish military service and it will naturally take a lot of time away from him during these next 6-12 months.

That alone isn't the reason though. Since we live in two different cities nowadays, getting into rehearsals isn't as easy as it used to be - now we're lucky if we get there even once a month - so we are forced to move forward slower than before. Right now it's more important for us to get new material done, since we're all pretty tired of our old songs. I'm pretty sure everyone who's been in the same band long enough has experienced this state of mind. You know what I'm talking about, right?

I also believe that as a group, we're at the point of make or break: to either find that red line, that spark, the connection that will keep us together - or to simply realize that we've grown too far apart to keep this thing as fun, entertaining and inspiring as it was when we started out. That being said, these next 12 months will be very crucial. Let's see how they turn out and what's to become. One thing is for sure though: we will get back on stage, when the time is right for it.

In the meantime you can keep an eye on our other projects: Temsu will continue making grind and noise in his other bands HävitysSynti and Flash Gordon & the Masters of the Universe. Santeri's new band SATAMA is about to release their first release some time soon. I heard their stuff is pretty heavily influenced by some Dischord-bands from the 90's, so I bet it'll be interesting. At least I'm looking forward to it! As for me, I try to get my personal shit together and keep myself busy with writing. I'm currently in the middle of this bigger project that will hopefully see daylight some time next year and then I have this blog, where I write some shorter stuff, like poems and such, whenever I feel like it.

So, like the title says: this is not a "we're breaking up" -statement. This is the exact opposite of that. We're still friends, we still hang out and we are writing new songs. We're just gonna stay underground for a while now, but when we get back up, we're gonna get back up stronger than ever.

Stay inspired, stay mad.

Back home

So, the tour is now over. It was great and I would like to thank everyone involved in it. Special thanks to the Lighthouse Project guys and our driver Aapo. You guys were awesome! To everyone we met during the trip: it was great getting to know you all and I hope we get so see you again some other time.

Here's a video from our show at Copenhagen's Ungdomshuset. Kudos to Piia, who shot and uploaded the whole thing.

Now we're about to get into writing some more new songs. We'll keep you updated. Until then, make sure you get yourself a copy of the new Lighthouse Project 7". We also have a lot of t-shirts and records left, so if you haven't got any and would like some, take a look at our merch -section. We're all broke and in debt, so we really need the money at the moment, haha!

Have a great springtime, everyone. The streets are getting dry here in Jyväskylä, it's finally possible to skateboard outside. I'm loving it.

Until next time,
