This weekend we will play at the lovely Cyklopen again, and this will probably also be the last show we do for a while. And this is why:
Our plan for 2017 was originally to write shitloads of new songs and record a new release, but unfortunatly Erik had some problems with his neck during last year and by the time we got to 2017 it got worse and he had to take a break from playing music all together in order to recover. The song writing process thereby came to a halt, and the rest of us just focused on playing live shows as usual with David (stolen from local stenchcore brigade Scum Crusade) filling in for Erik on the shows. But now Erik is getting better and it´s time to write those new songs and record them. So, after saturdays show that is what we will do and hopefully we´ll have some new material out in early 2018. Then we will also tour again, so feel free to get in touch already regarding shows next year! But until that material is recorded, we will do very few (if any!) shows.
And while we´re at it: all our merch is pretty much sold out and no new stuff will be printed at the moment. When we do, we will let you know! Until then, check out Insane Society Records for shitloads of crust-as-fuck Misantropic shirts and patches and order from there!
Also, alot of people are asking about when the official version of the ”Discography” LP will be released (as a limited edition of screen printed raw versions was released, and sold out, earlier this year). The answer is, that we have no fucking idea. Ask the labels involved! Hopefully they have more info.
Ultra thank you to everyone we met on tour this summer! Agnosy and Odio (aaaarrgggghh!!!), all the amazing organisers in Prague, Zdùnska Wula, Vsetin, Warsaw and Zelebsko, everyone giving us food and drinks and high fives, Insane Society for helping us out with merch and last but not least to Pawel Scream and Zhenja for being so fucking awesome. Much love!

First gig of the year in Stockholm is over and it was a blast. Thank you!
As some of you probably have seen on Facebook, Erik is taking a break from playing with Misantropic in order to recover from a neck injury that he have been struggling with for some time now. It is off course really fucking sad not to be able to play the upcoming shows together, but we hope for a quick rehabilitation and that he will be back on stage playing with us again in the future.
Luckily for us, David Eliasson (also in Scum Crusade) will help us out on guitar so no gigs will be cancelled. The new recording, and the new release, will probably be postponed though. The dates for the first half of 2017 can be seen above. See you on the road!
It has been a great summer with shitloads of great gigs! Thank you everyone who have helped us on the road; drivers, organizers, friends, merch makers, other bands and all you people in front of the stage! Punk forever, forever punk!
Misantropic + crew, Rozbrat Squat (Poland) june 2016
We will play one more show this year, in Berlin (Germany) at DIY Refugee Solifest 22/22-10, but after that we have decided to take a break from playing live for a few months. Instead we will focus on writing new material and record a new LP. Hopefully that record will be out in the first half of 2017.
Also, we have a discography LP in the works. It is now in production and will be released sometime during the end of 2016 by Neanderthal Stench and Halvfabrikat Records. On the LP you will find the ”Insomnia” 12″, the songs from the split 12″ with Eaten Raw and the songs from the split 7″ with Deathrace. Check out our Facebook-page for more info about that.
Our minitour in Slovenia and Croatia, that was planned for july, will not happen due to circumstances beyond our control. Please note that the tour was not confirmed or official at all (we was just in the stage of planning it, even though we know some venues already had put the info out about us coming over to play), so we do not really see it as a ”cancelled” tour. Anyway, this sucks but shit happens and hopefully we can come over some other time.
We´ll play in Luleå (Sweden) and Oulu (Hässäkkä Päivät festival, Finland) in early july. No plans after that. Want us to come and play? Contact us!
