No Tomorrow

SOF_No Tomorrow_web

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.

Unexpected Gift


It was a seven-year creative process from the first rehearsal until this release – and you can hear on these 20 (!) songs how much this band has invested. With Unexpected Gift, Kick Joneses are making themselves and us the gift of a new level of songwriting, texting, singing an arranging. What is striking is the volitionally eclectic approach. The leitmotiv of this record is that there is none. It is the amazing variety which makes it indeed an Unexpected Gift. There are pulsative and danceable songs next to fluffy pop tunes and rather rock orientated ones. But Kick Joneses are also entering new terrain after all these years. The three ballads marking this premiere are remarkably non-cheesy and wholehearted.

During the slow incoming spring in May 2016 these gentlemen gathered in a small cottage located in the middle of the forest a couple of miles outside their residence in Dalecarlia, Sweden. Their goal was to put 11 songs on tape, live and raw, over two austere days. And it succeeded. With total concentration and focus together with some canned food everything went very smoothly. Without having seen the light for 48 hours, they left the lonely village with 11 fresh power pop tracks. Although spring is often associated with flowers and birds chirping, it’s very dark and gloomy in Sweden during this time of year – the album title Noir felt close and self written. But the material also had gotten into a different direction. Immediately after the members had started working on the album, some time before the recording, they felt that after all the years together they had grown as a band and the songs followed them in the right direction into a stronger and, at this time, darker environment – Noir is certainly a band album in the truest sense.
