The 101’s to release new full length and video
Dutch punk rock outfit The 101’s have finished the recordings for their full length album, the follow up to their “Annihilation” single, hailing from 2012. The album, entitled “For The Years” was recorded at the end of 2013 by Robin van Loenen, known as songwriter and frontman of the Dutch award winning rock band Destine, and as producer and co-writer for many talented and award winning artists and songs. “For The Years”, containing 11 punk driven songs in the style of Red City Radio, The Story So Far and The Loved Ones, has been mastered by Troy Glessner, known for mastering jobs for genre defining bands like Propagandhi, Anberlin, August Burns Red, UnderOath and MxPx.
The album will see the light of day on March 14th 2013, on CD and LP, and will be released by White Russian Records, who previously released the Annihilation single as well. I For Us Records (No Guts No Glory, Nine Eleven) will take care of the Belgian release, No Reason Records (Atlas Losing Grip, Astpai, This Is A Standoff) will take care of the Italian release and No Panic! Records (River Jumpers, Crime In Stereo) will handle the German release.
The first single Chances is available now, and comes with a great video, capturing the bands energy, and shows what big sing-a-long choruses will do to the crowd. It has been shot by Niels Bourgonje, known for his work with the hard working Dutch band John Coffey.
The band will present this punk rock gem during a show with label buddies The Lowest Standard and Call It Off, at a free show in Altstad, Eindhoven, on March 14th.
“This new album is 100% ‘us’. It’s about our growth as human beings and as a band, and is our first real full length album. We decided to work with Robin to mix things up a bit, and get out of our comfort zone, which proved to be a great thing! Musically the new songs fit in with the tracks we released on our single Annihilation.” bass player Mark Welten says.
Pre-order information on the CD and limited edition coloured vinyl will be put online soon. Prior to the release the band will be performing a bunch of the new songs at the White Russian Records Showcase on January 16th, at the Crowbar in Groningen, during the annual Eurosonic/Noorderslag festival. Entrance to this showcase is free.Back to news overview
