Newsletter from the underground

2014 is almost over and what a year it’s been for THE UNDERGROUND FRACTION! We have released three killer records this year and there’s nothing that can stop our desperate fight against the mainstream culture. What 2015 will bring is top secret (of course) but hopefully we will hit you in the face with another bunch of hardcore attacks pressed on plastic. Here’s what’s going on right now:

HÅLL DET ÄKTA


Håll Det Äkta
are working on new songs. We can’t wait to hear what they will come up to this time. If you have the chance to visit Umeå this weekend they play together with Beyond Pink on December 13:th. They are also booked to the Umeå Open Festival 2015! Check out the message from Umeå Open:

“Hardcorebandet Håll Det Äkta är Umeåbandet som gör totalt totalt kaos från första till sista sekund. Inga konstigheter. Bara en rad av intensiva, korta och explosiva låtar. Snabbt, svängigt och stenhårt. Om du såg dem sist de spelade på Umeå Open så vet du vad som väntar: en musikalisk urladdning med tillhörande stagedives, mosh och svett!

Umeå har en historia som hardcorestad, och Håll Det Äkta gör onekligen sitt till att förvalta det arvet. Sångaren Marc Strömberg syntes till exempel i filmen Trogen till döden, en dokumentär om hardcore- och straight edge-rörelsen. Och gitarristen Jacob Arevärn startade föreningen 090 Hardcore. Inte heller skyggar de för att vara politiska. Feminism, socialism, urfolks rättigheter, antirasism och samtyckeslagstiftning är några av de ämnen som HDÄ avhandlar.

Norrlands gyllene bär, hjortronet, har länge varit bandets symbol – fast förvandlad till en granat. Som detonerar vid varje tillfälle de spelar live. Igen, igen och igen.”

IRON


IRON are back home from the European tour. Their killer album “Desperate fight” just got out on CD, released by Vegan Records (Argentina). They also have the song “Break new ground” on the animal rights benefit compilation CD “Stoppa våldet: artister mot speciesism vol.2”. So here we give you some propaganda, the lyrics for that song:

I still choose my diet with care
but the blood on your hands won’t wash away
Resistance always conquer despair
As everyone leaves I still stay
As everyone leaves I’m still right here

Do you have what it takes
to make a change
to reconsider
and to break new ground?

I still choose my diet with comfort
Despite your efforts to drag me down
I heard those jokes a million times before
Try to make me look stupid but you are the clown
The joke’s on you, man. You are the clown

Dare you face the facts
Dare you face the truth
Of the slaughter house?
Go vegan!

Last but not least, this is THE UNDERGROUND FRACTION 2014:
