I‘m almost sorry for being so lazy with updating this site. Anyway, Boredom is still around and we‘re working on new songs which hopefully will be released in the beginning of the next year! We‘re also planning to play a larger tour then again. Actually we‘re thinking about releasing the songs as a split with another band. As soon as things are confirmed or there is a rough schedule about when the release is gonna happen we will post it on this site! We played a couple of festivals and single shows this spring/early summer and always had a good time in doing so. Thanks to all the friends who invited us, the bands we played together and all the people that took care of us. Some major things also changed in the band since the last enry last year. At some point last year Vera decided to leave the band as she had to focus on other things and our friend Yoschi became our new bass player in the band. It has already been about one year now since we played the first shows with him. Also Marian played his last two shows with Boredom on the Tragedy shows this year in June in Graz and Linz. Since then Domsch became our new drummer and already played the last couple of shows with us. I‘m stuck in Berlin since about one year, Yoschi and Domsch are bobbin around somewhere in Vienna and Linz and Franz and Chris are hanging out in Graz most of the time, so we‘re all spread pretty far from each other. Apart from that we all got to work, read and drink quite a lot or are busy with studies and other band projects based in different cities. All that makes it a bit more difficult to practise or play single shows and is possibly the main reason why we play less than the years before at the moment. But as already written before, we‘re still active and working on new material and we will do our best to play at least some tours next year and are also always motivated for playing a couple of weekend shows in a row or festivals. I‘ll try my best to keep this blog more up to date and will rework some things on this site soon. Hope you‘re able to enjoy the rest of the summer without too much work or finally getting arrested too and hope to see all of you punks in healthy condition soon again! Thanks for listening, cheers.

http://boredomoverall.blogsport.de/2013/03/11/50/ http://boredomoverall.blogsport.de/2013/03/11/50/#comments Mon, 11 Mar 2013 20:38:45 +0000 Administrator News http://boredomoverall.blogsport.de/2013/03/11/50/ Three weeks already went by again since we came back from the Greece tour. I‘ll try to keep the retrospect short now, as I started to write a small diary of the time we spent in Greece, which I‘ll post on our blog when I‘m back in Graz again. I think it got a bit too long to post it here in the news section and apparently I forgot it on my computer in Graz when I left for Berlin. Anyway, all I want to say now is that all the shows were great again, we got treated amazingly good again, whe had great fun and spent an awesome and also exciting time with our best friends there again, you‘re the best and we love you! Jack also came from Athens to Graz last week to finish the Despite Everything recordings there and scatterbrain as I am, I totally forgot the excact date and was driving to Berlin just when he arrived in Graz, argh…that’s a pity. Hope you had fun and alcohol in Graz though! Ok, more details and stories about the Greece tour will be online to read soonish.

After we came back from Greece Phillip got the testpressings of the new LP send to Cologne and according to him everything sounded fine, so he gave the pressing plant the conformation to start producing it. Unforunately we‘re not able to play a release show before we‘re going on tour in April as the pressing plant just told us the LPs will be delayed a bit, but we will bring them with us for the shows in April. We also will try to play a release show in our hometown in Graz after we will be back from the European tour. As soon as anything is confirmed we‘ll post it here. All the songs of the new record are already online at Bandcamp as streams to take a pre listen. It’s also already possible to pre-order the record at Contraszt!Records if you‘re interested. Altogether it’s nine new songs and this is what the LP looks and sounds like:

1. Anxiety Disorders
2. Connoisseur Of Art
3. The One-Handed Parasite
4. Untitled
5. Crisis Stimulus
6. Intro
7. Fair Trade Caffeine
8. Plain Vanilla
9. Alea Iacta Est

The pressing will include a bit more than 500 pieces on black 180g Vinyl. This time we did the whole recording in our practise space in Graz by our own, the mix and master again is done by Robin and it got released by Contraszt!Records in Germany, Halvfabrikat Records in Sweden, Rope or Guilltone Records in Holland, Panda Banda Records in Slovenia, Dream Comes True Records in France, Destroy It Yourself Records in Portugal and WinHtein Records in the UK. The lyrics can also be found either on bandcamp or in the lyrics section. Thanks once more to Phillip who mainly released the record and handeld the whole process of getting it finally done, thanks a lot too to all our other friends who are running diy labels spread all over Europe and supported us again! Believe me, running a diy label means a lot of effort, time, passion and also money to put in or even to loose and bands like us wouldn‘t be possible to do things like this without all your help and idealism concerning diy and punk music and we really appreciate that! If you live in one of those countries we would highly recommend to check out the activities of those labels and to support them by going on shows or buying records if you‘re able to. Thanks!

We‘re are going to play at KuZeB Festival in Bremgarten, Switzerland on the 29th of March and after that one more show in Laives, which is located next to Bolzano, Italy. As already mentioned before we will play a release tour starting on April 3 in Olomouc, Czech Republic. The whole tour will be together with Catholic Guilt, the new band of our drummer and our guitar player. They are playing fast 80s hardcore/wave punk.

Will hang out in Athens until the 20th of February, so I really hope to meet up with all of you and to eat shitloads of Pita bread! This is also a call for solidarity with the Punks from Villa Amalias and with every other squatted and self organized diy space, as well as with all the struggeling people in Greece and everywhere else! The pigs won‘t get us down! blog.occupiedlondon.org

Thanks to everyone who’s involved in making this possible for us, especially to Philipp for helping us again with releasing it and also taking perfect care of the whole pressing process! This is amazing and means the world to us. Thanks too to everyone at the Winter Hardcore Fest at Epplehaus in Tübingen where we played in December…awesome bands, sweet people, heavy drinking, great food, party dancing, nearly dying in Bavarian snow storms, what does any honest Punk need more? As it seems we are doing four shows in Greece in February with our friends from Sarabante. Sarabante and good old Jack of Despite Everything are taking care of that. In total rockstar manner we‘re just hopping over to Athens by plane, haha..just need to book those shitty flight tickets finally. See you cute Punx there or on our European tour in April. Amore y guerra, volle Kraft voraus, Rock und Roll, forward!

Here are some pictures of the Tweety Party we played last Sunday in Graz, 400 [edit] 600 people, fun times, thanks, numavi!

All together it will be eight new songs. The mixing and mastering will be done again by Robin Völkert. We‘re still looking for labels willing to help us with releasing and distributing the new stuff. Feel free to contact us if you‘re interested. We‘ll try our best to release it as soon as possible and post some more informations about the release here in the next days. We‘re also playing two more shows in December. As we had to cancel our show at the houseproject Die Danz in Regensburg in July we‘re happy that we‘re now able to go there soon. The second show will be at Epplehaus in Tübingen the day after, where we‘re going to play at the Winterfest, together with loads of other awesome bands. (more infos here: hcwf.blogsport.de) Really looking forward to this! For the upcoming year we‘re planing to tour through Poland, Germany, The Netherlands and France in April again and are also thinking about playing some shows in Greece again and later the year we hopefully make it to England, Scotland and for the first time to Ireland. At least that’s the plan, as soon as anything is confirmed I‘ll post it here. I also want to apologize once more that we had to cancel the Kain release show in Linz in October in the very last minute, due to health issues and family reasons. Anyway, hope you had a good time there and you really should get their new 12inch (kainpunks.bandcamp.com) if you want to support some of the last few really active and sweet diy punks in this ridiculous country. Thanks to Inu and Geranium for the nice time together in September. Winter is here again, stupid wage slavery, university misery and other unnecessary things are yet still not abolished, so all those things are still raining their shit upon all of our heads. We can‘t stop to fight this, we‘ll stay alive and we need to be more angry than ever before…question everything at any time, where are all the remaining punks? Thanks!

Here’s the tentative schedule for April:

03.04.2013 Brno/Bratislava
04.04.2013 Krakow
05.04.2013 Warszawa
06.04.2013 Wroclaw
07.04.2013 Berlin
08.04.2013 Hamburg
09.04.2013 Hannover/Münster
10.04.2013 Nijmegen, De Onderbroek
11.04.2013 DE/BEL/LUX
12.04.2013 Strasbourg
13.04.2013 CH/DE/AT

Thanks a lot to all the people that came to our show last Tuesday at SUb in Graz. It was fun to play there after more than one year and around 140 people were showing up, which is awesome! SUb is closed for summer break until September now, but we could need some help building a new floor and to renovate some other things. Just check out the website of our diy space if you‘re around by mistake or just trapped in Graz and willing to help, at least we can offer you more than enough cold drinks, haha. Now I just came back from the sauna I needed to take with friends after loads of food and beer at the Fluff Fest weekend…even though it’s summer it feels good just to sweat out all the shit, but also to meet so many amazing friends and some nice bands from all over Europe on the last weekend and having a good time and beer together and to see that things still can turn out the best if they are done in a diy way….so thanks to all the people that watched us playing on Saturday there and who were involved in the organization of the festival…in some moments life still can be fun and pretty easy. We‘re going to play one more show together with Kain at the houseproject Die Danz in Regensburg this weekend. In August we want to record the new songs and try to release them soonish. If there’s anyone out there who wants to help us with that it’s again highly appreciated. Concerning shows we will be back in September in Austria and Germany together with our friends from Geranium and Inu, hope to see you then in all sincerity again….so enjoy the summer as much as possible, take care, try not to work too much, stay punk and last but not least..cheers!

Hey!! We‘re going to play at Unconquered Town festival in Karlovac, Hrvatska on Friday. Lukas decided not to play guitar in Boredom anymore, but he’s still around in Vienna and is also playing in bands such as Ruidosa Inmundica. Our friend Franz is the new one in our boat. So this will be the first show he’s going to play with us. The last tour we‘ve played in the beginning of April unfortunately has been pretty much a pain in the ass…a broken engine in Switzerland, sliced tires in Madrid, stolen equipment in France, canceled shows etc., the whole works you possibly don‘t need as a touring diy band. In spite of everything thanks to all the friends who treated us heartily again and set up really nice shows, gave us good shelter again and to all the people that danced with us. However, it took us some days after the last tour to sort out things and to get back our energy. In the meantime we‘ve got finished seven new songs, which we‘re going to record in the summer and we‘re also going to play some more shows over the summer, such as Fluff Fest and some other shows in July and September. Most of the shows are together with chummy bands such as Alpinist, Kain, Inu, Geranium, Masakari, etc. Check out the show section for more informations. The last news entry has been ages ago, so at this point I also really want to thank all the bands and amazing people we met on the February UK tour, possibly the most awesome tour we ever did so far! So this is more or less what we did within the last months. I just did some updates on this blog and will do some more these days and hopefully we‘ll manage to keep it up to date more frequently in the future again.
So see you soon again friends! Salud!
