|Jyrock, Ilokivi, Jyväskylä by Juho Yksjärvi|
This year we celebrated the 5th year together as a band and what a year it was indeed! 2014 turned out to be a year full of surprises for us. We didn't play as many shows as before, but the shows we did were pretty epic! The shows we had with the Cro-Mags and Negative Approach felt unbelievable and unreal. The shows we had in Turku and the ones we had this fall in Oulu and Joensuu were intense as hell - even with all the problems we had with the broken kickdrum! Thanks to everyone who participated in making them so memorable - the promoters, the bands and the people who went crazy in the pit. I am in your debt. You made me dislike my life a little less.
This year we focused on finishing the LP we've been working on since "What I've Seen" came out. The album is now in mixing and it should be out some time before the summer of 2015. Via whom, we don't know yet. If you're interested in helping us with getting the son of a bitch out, get in touch.
Let's see what 2015 throws in front of us. Hopefully more shows, more cities and more countries. If you have any leads on where we could play or if you're interested in booking us to your club/show/house, email me. After we get the LP out, we're eager to get it to as far away as possible - most preferably with us in a van.
Until then, go see UPRIGHT live as soon as you can, keep your eyes peeled for the next LIGHTHOUSE PROJECT record and buy the records EIGHT and ILLS put out earlier this year. You won't be disappointed.
Alright, that's all. See you next year.
