Endzweck Live in Malaysia: Tour dates confirm!

Posted in Show/Gig on June 4, 2009 by ijam315

tour poster

Endzweck (Japan) finally will hit Malaysia, and believe it or not, it will be around next week. I am so excited to see them and a chance to share the same stage with them on June 13th 2009 @ Grand Hall, MCPA will be something I’m looking forward to. I still remember listening to their CD last 5 years ago, and the excitement will never be fade for each and everyday. Be there, coz this is one of the great band who are making their way to Malaysia. This is the shit, man!

Line Up:
Takashi Uesugi
Akifumi Mochizuki
Hirohisa Yamaguchi
Yoshinori Yamaguchi
Atsushi Oku

Endzweck is probably Japan’s hardest working underground hardcore band around currently. They brings you intelligent and thought provoking hardcore music. Endzweck are a big name in Japan, and are one of the few bands that managed to turn heads in all other parts in the world as you know them, with their driving, dynamic and modern version of melodic, emotional hardcore, stuck somewhere between the new school and its roots. Similar to bands like Newborn or Shai Hulud, this is bringing anger as well as emotion, and is in my eyes still one of the most interesting versions of modern hardcore.

Have Heart – RIP

Posted in Band News on May 15, 2009 by ijam315

Patrick Flynn, “It’s time to go home again

Another great bands announced their departure, and it is unbelievable it is Have Heart. Luckily, we can still see them lives tomorrow @ MCPA as it will be their first and last performance ever in Malaysia. So, I hope to see some of you boys and girls in MCPA tomorrow. Give em some shout before they calling it quits. Be a part of this moment coz you won’t be able to have this chance again in future.

Words from Have Heart :

Once the Fall rolls around, we can’t really do this band the way we would prefer to anymore. Knowing this deadline of ours and having a whole world tour already booked, we’d like to take advantage of the chance to say goodbye to all the people we have met around the world over the years.

So, please come check us out in the remaining months on our little trip around the globe. So far Asia has been a wonderful experience and we’re very happy to have had the chance to meet so many kind people and look forward to the rest of Asia.

We will be playing our last show on this year’s National Edge Day on October 17th 2009 with a bunch of our friends bands and a sweet guest. It will be somewhere T accessible in the Boston area. It will also be a benefit for a women’s shelter in New Bedford, MA, run by my kind mother.

It’s been a nice 7 years and we’d like to thank all the unique hardcore kids and bands we have encountered. And in the words of DFJ, thanks to all the shit talkers for all the material to get off on. But, really….we have met so many wonderful people who we’ll just never forget.

It’s been so great. Take care and hope to see you over the next couple months”
