Punkalicious Christmas 2017
PC presents: Adhesive, Holly Would Surrender & Primetime Failure
Punkalicious Christmas presents:
Dieses Jahr steht alles im Zeichen des Skatepunks..
Das Publikum wird am Abend von 3 Bands beglückt werden.
Adhesive aus Schweden ist für den ein oder anderen Skatepunk Fan hoffentlich noch ein Begriff?
Wir konnten die netten Schweden überzeugen im Dezember im goldenen Salon halt zu machen.
Neben Adhesive und Holly Would Surrender werden dieses Jahr die wunderbaren PRIMETIME FAILURE aus Bielefeld stehen.
Here they come again…
The original line-up with Mathias, Micke, Geir, and Robert will reunite in 2017. We plan on playing a decent number of shows during the following year or so, and then it’s back to being punk rock retirees again. We bring no new songs, records and whatnot. Our goal is one thing:
Raising money for charity, while having some fun along the way. We’re only in it for the cash. During this period, we will save all profits made from live shows, and donate every penny to one or more charity organisations involved in aiding refugees and victims of conflicts.
"Born and raised in suburban areas around Bielefeld, Germany, 4 guys in their thirty-somethings are still trying to save your day. Even though their sound can’t be pigeonholed...stop naaaah damn it... Primetime Failure simply plays that kind of "Skate Punk" a whole generation grew up on.
Remember when you bought that "Mons Tour" longsleeve?
Or the day you first heard all those songs on your older brothers' mixtape?
Remember nearly breaking all your bones trying to skate?
Remember the days you thought it would be like this forever? ...
If there was a slapstick movie on your salad days in the ninetees, Primetime Failure would write the perfect soundtrack to it."
HOLLY WOULD SURRENDER:
Holly Would Surrender is a four piece Pop-Punk band from Hamburg/Germany. After a few changes in the line up over the years, today the band consists of Ole Baumert (vocals, guitar), Stefan Heiler (bass), Andrew Klassen (drums) and Bruno Aguilera (lead guitar). Formed in the beginning of 2010, the band started writing songs and immediately hit the road. Their pop-punk heroes Blink 182, NOFX and New Found Glory (to name a few) inspired Holly Would Surrender, which is apparent in their style, songs and performance.
Holly Would Surrender's first EP 'Past Crimes – Hard Times' was released in 2010, before they ever performed live. Since then, they have shared the stage with bands such as Zebrahead, Mest, The Ataris and Patent Pending, among others. In 2013 'The Great Escape' was released by Monster Artists (in Germany, Switzerland and Austria).
2016, three years later the four piece comes up with ‘Kaleidoscope’, their second album, released by Acuity.music (digital) and White Russian Records (CD and Vinyl). They couldn’t have chosen a better album name as you can find exactly the variety of a rotating kaleidoscope in the songs. The lyrics are much darker than before, due to personal changes in Ole Baumert’s life. But the energy of melodic hymns and catchy choruses get the songs stuck in your head.
Lyric support came from Joe Ragosta (Patent Pending) and vocal supporters were Tony Lovato (Mest), MC Lars and Nick Diener (The Swellers). And not to mention Dan Palmer's (Zebrahead) unforgettable guitar solo.
Holly Would Surrender never cared about stereotypes and clichés. They get their inspiration from the most unexpected sources. How about 90s Eurodance?
