STATUES ON FIRE (BRA) – on tour with a new record!

Statues on fire is one of the bands that blow your mind away in a minute once you heard them. This melodic punk band from São Paulo, Brazil was formed in 2012 by Andre Alves, head of the Nitrominds from Sao Paolo. Nitromind quit in 2012 and Andre and lalo who also played in Nitrominds started a new band called Statues on fire – a mixure of melodic punk rock, a touch of hardcore and a small piece of metal with great guitar riffs and simply good melodies. Propagandhi meets Dag Nasty and Suicidal Tendencies.
In 2014 they released their first record called -Phoenix- on Vinyl in Germany via Rookie Records and on CD in Brazil on 3 different labels ( RedStar, Bombardeio and Thirteen Records).
Since that time Statues on fire keep touring in Europe every year. And 2019 they will be back on the road to kick asses. And they will release their 3rd album “Living in darkness” (Rookie Records/ Cargo) in May 2019.

ANTI-PASTI (UK) – on tour in May 2019

England, 1978… the Punk Rock explosion had enveloped the country. In Derby, Anti-Pasti arose from the ashes of several other well-meaning but otherwise non-committed early punk bands. An early release by the band on their own Dose label was the now much sought after Four Sore Points EP on clear vinyl which included the standout track No Government, later voted 3rd in a poll of all time punk classics by readers of Sounds magazine.
None of this had gone unnoticed by executives of Rondolet Records, who signed the band up and speedily released the single Let them Free. This was closely followed by Six Guns and the album The Last Call which reached thirty-one in the National Music Chart and topped the Independent version for a full six months..
After the release of their second album the band members went different ways until 2012, when an offer to play the much celebrated Rebellion Festival came in.
After the huge success of Rebellion, the venture began to flourish, with a UK tour and selected European dates going down a storm. The new look band performed at festivals across Europe, toured Germany and recorded the long awaited third album RISE UP which was released by Westworld Recordings to universal acclaim.

20 years AUTORAMAS – tour and new record!

AUTORAMAS from Brasil was the brain child of GABRIEL THOMAZ. Garage Pop at its best, a 4 piece band with a rocknroll attitude and wild at heart. They played their first gig in 1998. After the second gig they already had a fan base in Brazil’s alternative rock scene. The Brazilian press was enthusiastic about how powerful they are live and that they are a blend of B-52’s, DEVO, DICK DALE and THE VENTURES.

AUTORAMAS won three prizes in the last MTV MUSIC AWARDS in Brazil in 2005. It was the first time in MTV Brazil. They have been touring in Europe every since. Constantly and without any breaks.
Their new and 8th album “Libido” got released in summer 2018 (SOUNDFLAT RECORDS in cooperation with the Brasilien label HEARTS BLEED BLUE (HBB)). The sound of their new album goes back to their roots, its raw and got punky roots that by all means need to be enjoyed at maximum volume! Its their 20th anniversary. And they will be going on tour again end of April 2019.
