Organize and Arise along with Profane Existence will be setting up shop at Cause Spirits and Soundbar in Uptown Minneapolis to celebrate 25 years of MISERY as they play two gigs. One all ages show and a later 21+ show. Needless to say, this will be a record release show for DESPISE and WAR//PLAGUE, along with many other bands.
So we just wrapped up our tracking last week and now have Brad at Audiosiege in Portland doing the mix and I’ve gotta say…this is by far the best experience and sound we’ve ever had! We’re planning to do two separate albums with this session. Our first priority in releasing these tracks is to get our single out for the PE series that’s running this year. I believe we’re in line to be #7 and already have the art and title sorted out….but sorry, you gotta wait ;)
The next release is based on a mere concept we had some time back and will be a 4 song 12″ with a sort of back story. We’ve been really hitting the ground running as a band and feel that we not only want to write music, but we really want to put our minds and energy into something that’s not just “another record”. I’m not quite sure what that means, but after doing this for so many years, you really start to recognize how important the music can be and what kind of effect it has on yourself and others.
So, to say that we’ve just begun would be putting it lightly. Tons of ideas, and tons of support from all over. Cheers to the DIY community and everyone involved to make this place better by contributing in one way or another. Punk is a way to get a message and a feeling out to the world, and damn it feels good! Cheers
IN DEFENCE loves the month October. It’s their favorite time of the year. Halloween is approaching, I’m (Ben Crew) finally turning 21 and IN DEFENCE is getting ready to hit the road again. This time around we are headed on a midwestern romp where we will play a basement show with PHOBIA and help BURNING SONS celebrate the release of their new 7″ record “Reflective Confessions”. If you buy an IN DEFENCE LP, CD or T-SHIRT you can get the BURNING SONS record FREE along with a hand screened “NO WAR BUT STAR WARS” patch. Supplies are limited. Act quick. Once these special freebies are gone… they are gone! And trust me you are going to want the Burning Sons 7″. It rips! (All prices are postage paid in U.S.)
