The guys in SOLID GROUND are already back with a new band: ANIMAL INSTINCT! check out their myspace...
Farewell EP for free!
Switzerland's permier hardcore band Solid Ground (2003-2008) have left us an amazing final present, a farewell EP released through Let it Burn Records on January 1, 2009. It is titled "This World Keeps Spinning Without You" and is available FOR FREE at www.myspace.com/solidgroundrip. A physical cd version is following in March 2009.
call it a day
Read here what Martin SG has to say:
some may already have heard the news:
solid ground decided to call it a day. nothing really bad happend. it
is just that over the last 1 or 2 years, it was getting harder and harder to keep the band going on a level that we wanted to. due to job responsibilities, among other duties, we couldn't dedicate as much time to the band as we wanted to.
however we feel that there is also no reason whatsoever to stop the band right here and now. we are still going to play the bunch of shows this summer that are already booked, plus we want to finish this band in an appropriatebway. so we are going to do one last european tour in october. which by the way is being book by our friends at avocado bookings as i write this.
we always felt that playing shows is one of the most important and
fun things with solid ground. so everyone out there that wants to see us one last time, make sure to come out to those last few shows and have fun!
check our website for dates and venues. we definitely will give a 120 % for each and every show - just as we always did.
after our european tour we will play one official last show here in
switzerland, which will be announced later on.
the madness is not over yet !
if all goes well, we are even going to record the last four songs that we just wrote. we are very proud of these tunes and, like every band, we think our latest stuff is our best! :-) so we feel it would be a shame if those songs would never see the light of day.
and in case you don't know or i forgot to mention ... the guys in
CHEAP THRILLS rule big time!!! check out these boys if you haven't yet."
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!
The SOLID GROUND / CHEAP THRILLS tourdates are all confirmed now. please check our tour-section or the AVOCADO BOOKING website to find out when SG is playing your city and make sure you show up.
yet another new member to the LET IT BURN Family
Who would have thought that? Only one signing in whole 2007 and 2008 starts with three in a row! After DEATHSPIRIT and RED TAPE PARADE we announce the third band that will enlargen our roster: Swiss hardcore legend SOLID GROUND have joined us and will release their highly anticipated new album "Can't Stop Now" March 15, 2008. Needless to say that we are honored to work with a hardcore band of such high integrity.
Can’t Stop Now features 15 tracks of hardcore the way it was initially meant to be. While still staying true to their unique sound, SOLID GROUND's new material turned out to be way heavier and severe than songs previously written.
The band decided to upload three brand new songs to their myspace profile. You can also download them in high quality in our audio section.
As touring is SOLID GROUND's "calling card", they're gonna hit the road with CHEAP THRILLS in March 2008, just starting off on the release date of the album. Check out the AVOCADO BOOKING website for dates and info.
