Little did we know …

summer is over. gone are the heat and the fucking laziness. so we started to get busy again… buzzing around the hive of reality and filling the gutters with shit!

first things first: after some sort of kick-off show last Saturday together with a huge bunch of drunken people somewhere in the middle of nowhere (in almost upper styria, to be more precise) we will be playing two shows with Drip of Lies from Poland next week – one in Graz, the other in Vienna. Check the show section for more details. Also, some dates for our little winter tour end of December this year and the beginning of January are already confirmed. But we are still looking for more shows to fill the gaps. If you want to help or know people who maybe could, please let us know! we are looking forward to seeing many of you at one of our next shows! AND we finally got our album ready to be played on your tape and CD players! forget mp3s – fucking nostalgia is striking once again! blurry sounds and fucked up plastic covers wrapped in cheap paper!

FRANZ STRØSUK LP (2013) – now available on Bandcamp!

HIGH/LOW/ASIDE/INVISIBLE/IMAGINARY/WEIRD/CRAZY-FIVES to everyone!

It took some time, but finally we proudly announce the online release of our first full-length studio album! FRANZ STRØSUK contains 10 songs, of which most are known from our live shows. There’d been many crucial developments during the last couple of weeks. Since our recording sessions in July, we’ve played most of our past shows, had a change in our line-up and spent many hours producing merch, covers … . At the moment we are planning two more (mini)-tours for Oktober/November and December. THANX again to everyone involved in that great process. Without you people, it wouldn’t have been as much fun and success! Fuck nostalgia, but sometimes such words of gratitude are needed, and let me assure you, it’s the bloody truth! THANK YOU: Tom, Chris, Conny, Lea, Marian, our families, Wolfi, Thomas from Output Mastering, the guys from Dead End Friends, the people from SUb, Mike, Raph, Spela and Ivan and everyone else who helped us in some way recording, mastering and releasing the album, and of course all those involved in setting up and organizing shows. DIY sometimes appears to be nothing more than a word (or three words) but it is still alive and prospering!

So far you can listen to (and download for a very reasonable price) the LP on Bandcamp. There will be an one-file-audio-video on ytbe soon as well. CDs and tapes with the entire album will be available later this year, latest at our next shows, which will be announced as soon as possible. Thers’s still a lot of shirts and bags left from our last screen-printing session. Just write us a line or two if you are interested in either and we can put some pieces aside (franzstrosuk@riseup.net).

ENJOY!

MISSION COMPLETED

Well, well, well. So our mini tour in September is pasé. Three shows in four days – that might not sound as enormous to everyone as it does to us, right, but we enjoyed it a lot. And as it’s always the same, a fourth show would have been even better. Anyhow, we met a lot of new friends, regained a little of our tightness on stage and smashed some brain cells for good. Nothing more to wish for! Thanks to everyone who have supported us these last couple of days! CU again soon. In the meanwhile we are desperately waiting for the master of our album. Should be dropping in soon… or so we hope! More news on that, as soon as we have some!

Here’s a pic from the show in Maribor (fucking posers!!):

SEPTEMBER MINI TOUR + Updates

Life appears to be ok sometimes, at least, when everything works out even better as planned. We were trying to set up a mini tour from Sept 13 to Sept 16, and, guess what, it worked out pretty good so far. 3 shows in 4 days are settled in Maribor, Kremsmünster and Graz. All we need now, is another show on Sunday, Sept 15. So if you are reading this and you think you can help us in either way (setting up a show, spreading the word, … ) plz let us know.

We also updated the media section of this blog – new embed bandcamp  player + watch utube videos directly. Things are in progress and we are kept busy! Nothing bad about that. There’s also some pics from the show last Saturday at Club Waakum online here.

DO IT YOURSELF but do it together!

ATTENTION: Big announcement ahead.

But first some words of gratitude and joy: The Sunday show in Wr. Neustadt was fucking amazing. Thx to BHF and Brackets Closed for setting up this wonderful afternoon get-together. And also a big thx to everyone who showed up and suffered the tropical heat of the foxhole rather than going for a cool and comforting swim somewhere else. DIY is the way to be and this is much more fulfilling than anything else. Blablabla…

Now the big news: we proudly present the first song of our forthcoming full length album. The song is called SEPARATE WAYS and comes along with some moving pictures.  The entire album will be available soon! Stay tuned fore news on that!

Tea and biscuits for everyone!

It was a rough weekend, with ups and downs – but everything turned out to be alright in the end. The show in Güssing was plagued by wasps and the common annoying  oppressive interference of the governmental puppets. A proposal how to be a real role-model for the next generation: Quit your jobs and start thinking for yourselves.  Anyhow, we met great people in the woods and made some new friends. Thanks again t C. for helping out on such a short notice. Without you we would have missed the “punks @ techno-party mayhem”… crazy shit, believe me. Sundays in Graz are boring, at least when you are playing a show at Explosive. The Adolescents did their job, so did we – nothing more to say about that. Our next show’s gonna be a Sunday afternoon in Wr. Neustadt with BHF and Brackets Closed. Bring some tea and biscuits and enjoy some punk rock music!

Upcoming dates:

18.08. /BHF (AT) + Brackets Closed (AT) @ Fuxbau, Wr. Neustadt
31.08. /Between the Lies (AT) + Lecker Pissen (AT) @ Club wakUum, Graz/Gradec

July had been an intensive month. A lot of mind-blowing things happened, and more are to come in August and September. We finally got a first mix of our album. Thx a thousand times Mr. C !

If you need tickets for Sunday, plz send us a message!

MASTERPIECE APPROACHING!

Recording sessions are finally completed. Four days in a basement studio with dear friends, some bottles of booze and uplifting spirits will bring us 10 songs of emotion and musical creativity. Now it’s time to wait for the mix and master. Well, there is only so much to do concerning our album now! Until then we are rehearsing for the upcoming shows. Next gig will be on Monday, July 29th @ Escape in Vienna with the Street Dogs, Louise Distras and Wham Bam Bodyslam. In August we will be playing in and around Graz/Gradec once again.

We already got some pictures from our last show @SUb in Graz/Gradec with Punkreas from Montenegro. Klick here to see them. THX a lot Mr. Broko for uploading the pics!

Check the SUK SHOW section of this blog for more info on our upcoming shows.

FRANZ STRØSUK says THANK YOU to everyone involved in that awesome times we are experiencing right now. Without you people, it would be much harder and much less fun too!

Take care!

We found a Shelter in Vienna!

Roadtrip #2 this week had been quite a little longer than the first one. Gleisdorf did not fail to meet our expectations … none; but it was quite alright and we reached some point of epiphany:  people will not show up in masses for the first slot, especially when a punk band opens a metal-(only)-night in a little town next to nowhere. In Vienna, we missed the stampede of noise-eager human-beings as well. The show was good, though, and we’ve got some pictures: check this link, if you are interested!

Next stop will be right in front of our doors! The foundations of the city of prohibition will shatter and we will hit the nail on its head! FUCK OFF MR. MAYOR!

save the date: 12.07.2013 Franz Strøsuk + Punkreas @ SUb, Graz/Gradec

News Update! More gigs in July/August! +++Merch+++

It has been some time since the last update. But we have been busy. There’s gonna be a shit load of concerts coming up this summer. So we will be busy driving across the country and spreading some more propaganda against the mainstream – sometimes one has to use the mainstream channels, though, in order to tear ’em down… WTF!

During the last couple of weeks we have also printed some more shirts and bags. Thx to P. @ Traumwerk at this point! The merch looks awesome. Check below for some pics of it.

So here’s the dates to remember. Serve your country and riot!

01.07. /KRISIUN (BRA) + UNDER DESTRUCTIONS (AT)+ tba. @ Kulturkeller, Gleisdorf
04.07. /Antagonist AD (NZ) + more @ Shelter, Vienna

29.07. /STREET DOGS (US) + LOUISE DISTRAS (GB) + WHAM BAM BODYSLAM (AT) @ Escape, Vienna
