Help a cool band out!

When Your Number's Up

Yeah, you heard. Apparently, it gets even worse. That's all I know or even want to know for now. We got robbed at the very end of tour in a totally unreal, extremely sketchy series of events that still makes no sense at all, only leads to paranoia, anger and a total loss of faith. Passports, money, all the costs of the tour. Either way, whoever did it, it was a bullet in the head, the end of the line. A sudden and totally fucked up way for it to end, which I know will be fitting when I look back on it. All we could do was play the show, badly, and go our ways with whatever money we could muster. I hitched a ride back to Prague with Tomas. Since I can't do a fucking thing about it, I'm going to hang out with my girl, and friends, stare at some Czech mountains and try not to think about it. Needless to say, all outstanding plans are off. All this shit aside, thanks to everyone that helped out and travelled from all over for the shows on this tour, all the kids and bands we played and stayed with. Minus a few fucked up shows, it was probably the best tour we ever had. Thanks everyone for your good wishes. I'll elaborate when I'm home next week, for now - yes it's true, and yes it's over.

As news travels fast most of you should have heard by now that Cursed, on their 2nd to last show of their European tour, got robbed from all their tour-money. Money they needed tp pay their van, their plane-tickets and their merch. Apperently someone, in a squat in Mullheim, Germany, got his way into a locked room and stole the bag that had the money, being over 8000 Euro’s, passports and some personal belongings, leaving the band not only with debts but most and for all a feeling of total despair. The band played, as what to appears, their last show the day after in Amsterdam, Holland....

We, as their European label, have never ever asked anyone to help out financially, and even though we have lost a fair amount of money as well, won’t do that now either. What we however are not afraid to do, is ask to help out Cursed.
And although, Chris Colohan, the singer and spokesman of the band is very clear on their website yourfuckingfuneralblogspot.com about the (non excisting) future of Cursed, we feel we should do whatever we can to at least try and give them back a sense of hope and faith in the hardcore and punk community.

If you have a a few bucks, or maybe even a good amount, you can go to www. myspace. com/burninglovers This is Chris’ other band and on their myspace is a Donate button.

We also have leftover merch for sale in our online-store, we have their new album available. And some other goodies…. We would kindly ask you to pick up something from this incredible band and in that way help them out.

We’ve heard some plans from people doing benefit shows and what-not, but nothing is certain yet. Hopefully ‘our’ community, something we still believe in, can come up with something and really show that hardcore is for the kids, and BY the kids.

If anyone has suggestions or can help out (REALLY help out... Right now, words on the internet, no matter how well ment, don’t mean much….
) please get in touch!
