“It’s the end of a year… There’s another one comiiiing!”

by landverraad

Wow, this year has been a total rollercoaster for Landverraad. We played more than 40 shows all over Yurop, released an LP, ate shitloads of super tasty vegan food, slept on beautiful wooden floors or luxurious IKEA mattresses of amazing people, talked about important stuff on- and off- the stage and had super fun times. And now a bit of a personal rant.

Sometimes if I stop to think about how crazy it is to be in this DIY punk community it makes me very happy about the life choices I have made. I defiantly have not ‘made it’ according to the standards of the western society, but being a part of this special community makes sure that these standards are set wrong (and of course, there should not be a standard at all). People all over the world’s smallest (and most annoyingly privileged) continent go through the trouble of setting up a show, arranging equipment, cooking food and hosting us in their or their friend’s houses just because they feel it’s an important and/or nice thing to do for bands that share most their views on organizing and life in general. I feel it’s really special that this concept still survives in the state of the world we live in today. And this is just a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped us in any way over the 4 years of being Landverraad. It’s been amazing and it continues to be so.

Punk es amore!
