When Trumpets Fade
Music that hits you harder than the explosion in Apollo 13. Hardcore that sounds like commander Jim Lovell losing his cool. That's what this Dutch five-piece is all about. Hence the name: Screw Houston, Start Screaming! No wonder these guys happen to cause quite a stir in both the national and international scene, right after their inception in February 2009. Inspired by the likes of Gallows, The Ghost Of A Thousand, Cancer Bats and The Bronx the band released a self-titled EP (currently sold out) in it's first year of existence. Within two years Screw Houston, Start Screaming! Did over 50 shows with acts like F***ed Up (CA), Through This Defiance (US), Holding On To Hope (US), Midnight Souls (BE), Fights & Fires (UK), Otis (NL), Noyalty (NL), 21 Gun Salute (NL), Striking Justice (NL), This Routine Is Hell (NL) and Antillectual (NL). Because of those appearances and because of the band's utter dedication Screw Houston, Start Screaming! Teamed up with White Russian Records to release it's first full length album (the digital version). 'When Trumpets Fade' contains a raw and energetic mix of powerful rock 'n' roll riffs, passionate screams and melodic hardcore. The album was recorded by the band and Walter Poppelaars at Studio West, Roosendaal (NL) and marks the kick off of a number of tours the band will embark on to support it's newest release. 'When Trumpets Fade' will be available in a beautiful digipack, designed by Bob Martens. The record will be released on October 7th 2011. Be sure to check it out. And Start Screaming while you're at it!
