Like A Motorcycle is four piece punkrock band from Halifax, Nova Scotia, and the first all female band on Rookie. They started in 2011 and are playing since summer 2014 in this line-up, in the tradion of the Riot Grrl movement: Raw, vehement, partly frenetic and screeching, partly melodic. On September 2nd we gonna release their debut album on Rookie: High Hopes.
The same titled song is out as a radio single since beginning of June. Here you can see the video: High Hopes (Video)
STATUES ON FIRE release their new album “No Tomorrow” in August. Most often used references are bands like Propagandhi and Strike Anywhere. The band worked once again with Marcello Pompeu and Heros Trench, Grammy nominated producers in Brazil, also front man and guitar player of the famous metal band, Korzus. You gonna hear tons of SG’s and Marshall plexi in your ears, promised! „No Tomorrow“ proves the band’s development of their own punk rock style. You can hear catchy and powerful songs combined with heavy riffing and great songwriting. The lyrics are based on their view of society and human relationships, the album title explains itself. Live:

This new Cologne based band with experienced members (Genepool, Bazooka Zirkus…) quickly found their very unique style. Guitar music, not prior rock, not main punk, not primer indie. Straight forward, with different layers but still playful. The first same titled album contains 12 songs, forcefulness follows catchyness and you won’t remain seated very long but start to move your feet and sing along. Vinyl comes with download code and printed inner sleeves.
„Echtholzstandby“, the second album of Schreng Schreng & La La. Schreng Schreng & La La, ist the duo of Lasse on guitar and Jörkk on vocals.
11 songs, including well selected cover songs by Cüntsler, Eric’s Trip and Jimi Berlin, coming with a nicely designed digipak and booklet.
