“We were heavily influenced by the current wave of revolutions raging across every country in the world. In these songs, we were trying to express the optimism and excitement we were feeling. A furious energy was burning through us! However, we’re smart, realistic (and sometimes pessimistic) people too so there is a very dark side lurking in there too.” – Louis Lingg and the Bombs
2 years after their first album “Lullabies for Mutant Monkeys” the paris-based anarcho-pop-punk band Lous Lingg and the Bombs return in an impressing way with their new album “Alphabet of a Revolution”. On 19 songs, which are rarely longer than 3 minutes, the punk-dance-party is celebrated, which is overflowing from your local illegal squat.
This is the soundtrack for the anti-capitalist demonstration currently camped out in your city. This is the sound of people screaming for another way of doing things before it’s too late for us all. This is the smell of teargas and the leather of a riot cop’s glove suffocating all hope. This is the joy of taking back the streets, of taking back what’s rightfully ours. These are the sounds of freedom and our future.
The album “Alphabet of a Revolution” will be released on May 25th, 2012 as a free download and as a special-edition-download with some extra tracks to pay for and will be available on every well-known portals and download stores.
