Sometimes when you write a song, reality detonates like a bomb over you - exposing that your song idea really was just a butter knife compared to what's happening out there. We can assume that it happened to many bands before, but by the time this song was written, we and a lot of people didn't expect it to be THAT BAD!
We decided to make a video of this song and soon we'd like to show you some footage of how we thought to tackle this issue our way.

here's a small video of our live recording session at vik's place. the original plan of seeing cis using his voice (while strolling around in the park) didn't quite work out as planned. we ask for your understanding. in return, verena is playing the violin in another park.

the song will be released through LaserLife Records and Shield Recordings on a split 7" with WOAHNOWS in september 2013.

Finally, we managed to do some pictures of us, that are not taken right before or after a show. So we met up in the Grazer Stadtpark, fooled around for a little while and Marie Drücker did the rest!

hey friends!
about three years ago we've played our first gig in rotenturm, austria.
since then THE LIBERATION SERVICE had 4 different drummers, did 8 tours (some were short, some ridiculously long), played 130 shows in 12 different countries, met some of the the greatest people you can imagine and grew beards (at least most of us).
tonight we're playing a squatted former kindergarden somewhere in holland together with our sweethearts in soey. really didn't see that coming when we first practiced!

we sincerely can't thank you enough for the support in the last three years.

Here's the statement we wrote together with our buddies from The Forum Walters, dealing with the fact that some of our shows were cancelled due to Joey's religious beliefs. Needless to say, we're looking forward to all our shows that haven't been cancelled.

Dear friends,

we've spent quite some time to book a tour trying not to end in a major financial disaster. It does not really help the situation that our van got broken into and valuables worth over €6000 got stolen in Italy. Our little group consists of Joey Briggs, The Forum Walters and The Liberation Service, who share the love of music and touring.

We are now dealing with the consequences of an article about Joey's religious beliefs, published by a German magazine.
We want to clarify that we do not share Joey's beliefs in any way but we are well aware that Joey is primarily a musician, not a missionary.

Everything we've worked for so far is now on the brink and we, The Liberation Service and The Forum Walters are just two small Austrian bands who worked their asses off to get this tour together and we are still working our asses off every single day on tour.

The article published by the magazine already led to some cancellations which mean far more than financial disaster to us. We are not gonna let this get us down and hope for your support. We're looking forward to our upcoming gigs.

Greetings from a Romanian petrol station,
The Forum Walters & The Liberation Service
