Shred Fest & Fresh Merch
After a false start last fall live events are really back this time! We can
finally reveal the new festival we’ve been hinting at: SHRED FEST, a combination
of music and skating! And there’s a pre-order for great looking new shirts and
With shows on the way we wanted to make new merch. We made a poll and people
picked the Bijstand mural design by Mike Nicolaassen. You can pre-order a shirt,
crewneck or zipper with an album of choice! We have all items in 3 color options
(black/navy/burgundy) and a wide range of sizes available for pre-order only!
Pre-orders are up until Sunday Feb 27, orders will be sent out at the beginning
Unfortunately our financial reserves have vanished during the pandemic, this is
the ultimate way to support us. Thank you for helping us out this way; it means
the world to us, and makes new recordings possible(!)
When Friends First Fest #6 got postponed to Dec 2022 we wanted to do “something” as soon as measures would allow it. SHRED FEST is our impromptu festival happening at skate park Waalhalla in Nijmegen on April 2nd. Combining a rad line-up (announcement soon!) with skate demos, contests, jams and food! You heard the announcement here first, keep an eye on our social media or the FB event for updates! Bring your board / bmx / blades / scooter kid or borrow some gear from Waalhalla and come SHRED with us!
Deconstructing I WROTE THIS SONG
To kill the downtime we’ve been doing all sorts of pandemic projects: a drum
chronology, acoustic shows
The latest (and hopefully the last) one
is a series about the deconstruction of I WROTE THIS SONG. The first 3 episodes
give a peek at our songwriting process through demos, instrumentation
breakdowns, the song’s structure and music that inspired the songwriting.
