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!
We receive many emails and messages from people who want to book Misantropic to shows/festivals abroad. Sadly, it usually ends up with us not going. We just want to explain the reason for this:
Fist: Misantropic never profit on gigs. If you can cover our travel expenses, we will come and play! However, we rarely do tours due our family situation, our jobs, our other bands/projects and offcourse our total lack of money, so when we play we do 2-3 gigs on weekends and then we must head back home to work so we can feed the kids and stuff like that.
We also live in northern Sweden. The north has no infrastructure. We are pretty much a sparsely populated colony that covers about 2/3 of Sweden’s total surface and this means that in order to get to the rest of Europe we have a long road south. So while a band from southern Sweden can drive to, let’s say Berlin, in around 7 hours the same trip would take us around 25 hours. And we just don’t drive for 25 hours to a show; we are to fucking old for that. Travelling by train is also hard, because there are basically no trains up north and the few that we have are really expensive and take lots of time. So for these reasons we need to fly in order to get abroad, and the closest Swedish airport that can take us abroad is 600 kilometers south from us – which means that our travel costs sometimes gets doubled since we first might have to fly to a southern swedish airport in order to fly abroad.
To sum things up: We would love to play at your festival. And please, feel free to write us and ask! But just be aware of our geographical situation and be aware that we might have to ask for more travel expenses than other Swedish bands (who mostly come from the south). Again: Misantropic never profit on gigs and if you can cover our travel expenses, we will come and play!
Delayed as fuck, but now it´s here: Misantropic/Eaten Raw split LP. Releasedate is set to 20/06 so you´ll have to wait another week to buy this, but as you can see it turned out great and it sounds fucking awesome! Hope you´ll like it as well. One of the tracks, called ”Ripping Through The Darkness” , has been available online for a while now – just follow THIS link to listen to it.
How to get it: Sweden: A proper releaseparty will be held in in Umeå in september, but if you live up north and don’t want to wait until then – just contact us and we´ll work something out. We will also bring records to our upcoming shows (Gbg in june and Sthlm in august) so all you southerners can buy it straight from us without getting ruined on postage. Abroad: We recommend you to order this through Halvfabrikat Records since the whole process of money transfer and postage probably will be easier for everyone involved that way (they are currently taking pre orders on the limited white vinyl, so act fast and get one of those!). Halvfabrikat Records have worldwide distribution through a number of independent companies, so check out their website and find your local dealer.
"How I long for the day
when the tables are turned,
when enough is enough
and your mansion is burned,
when you ask for forgiveness
for what you have done,
and the people shall answer
by giving you none"
