LET IT BURN SHOWCASES
The Let it Burn Showcase Weekend is over and I wanted to blast out a short but big THANK YOU to everyone who was involved:
first of fall Nanouk / Avocado, my partner in crime who contributed a big part to both shows with his professionality and weird haircut!
then of course all the bands who played the two shows.
Final Prayer, Today We Rise, Solid Ground & Deathspirit: thanks for rocking out!
Mike Chamrad for taking some genius pictures!!!
Martin Metzger and his wife for muffins, distro and transportation.
also both promoters, Franz / Feierwerk and Anselm/Juha West who did a great job and delivered enough booze and food to make all bands happy.
and last but not least a big shout out to all the kids who showed up, danced, sang along and lost blood & sweat at both showcases.
See you all next year for the Let it Burn Showcases 2009!

"Welcome The" OUT NOW!
Just a short note to let you know that MISCREANTS debut MCD "Welcome The" is out to destroy you now!
Line up change
Miscreants and guitarist Rick Venema have officially parted ways, on good terms.
"The time came for both parties to cut the gordian knot and make a decision for the band's sake. Rick's a great bandmate and a good friend but in order for things to move forward with Miscreants we needed to let him go. No hard feelings. No regrets. We'd like to thank Rick for all his efforts and wish him the best of luck in the future. We are looking forward to touring with him one last time this summer!
After Miscreants' upcoming European tour with Age of Ruin, in support of our August 3rd release on Let It Burn Record, we will not immediately be looking for a replacement.
We are in the middle of writing a new record - halfway done as a matter of fact - and will look for a full-time member once the record has been recorded. Until then we will ask friends to fill in for Rick upcoming tours and see where that takes us..."
on tour all through august and september
Friends, bookers, promoters and music fans!! Miscreants will be on tour all throughout Europe with Age of Ruin from August 7th until August 23rd. Joining us for the last week of that tour are Denmark's permier thrashers, As We Fight. Anyone interested in booking a show for this date, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Directly after the AoR / As We Fight tour Miscreants will be doing an additional 2 weeks of shows all across Europe to support the release of their EP 'Welcome the Miscreants'. Anyone interested in booking Miscreants from August 23rd until September 8th. Please get in touch through email@example.com
Its been a long time since we signed a new band last time but it was definitely worth the waiting. Let it Burn Records heartly welcomes the Miscreants from Holland! We're constantly observing the European underground music scene and Miscreants is definitely one of the most promising bands these days. Within the short time since their formation they have showed more dedication and guts than most other bands out there. Above all Miscreants have recorded one hell of a debut MCD which we are more than proud to release. To get an idea of what we are talking about simply check out their song "Blood As Spirit" and you'll know.
"I am extremely pleased to work with Let It Burn Records" says Miscreants' vocalist van der Velde. "Chris (LIB) showed great interest in the band from the start. He is as excited about the band as we are and has given us great confidence. We aim to prove that his interest and Let It Burn's efforts to get us out there with this release are well deserved. Expect to see us out on the road all over the place with all sorts of bands, proudly flying the Let It Burn flag from our 'Ship of Fools' ( i.e. van)! "
We are looking forward to working with Miscreants and are happy to have enlarged our roster with such an amazing band.
