Re-Tros Album Launch This Weekend!

Armed with a new album, Rebuilding The Rights of Statues (Re-Tros) are returning to Shanghai to launch what is looking to be one of the biggest Chinese releases of the year. Two years on from their highly acclaimed debut release "Cut Off", Re-Tros have finished recording their much anticipated new album "WATCH OUT! CLIMATE HAS CHANGED, FAT MUM RISES...". It's obvious from the first few songs that the trio have kept their brooding atmospheric post-punk roots and have layered it with a focus on developing a far larger sound. "WATCH OUT! CLIMATE HAS CHANGED, FAT MUM RISES..." is a shifting into the next gear for a band that has already headlined several music festivals and even had the chance to work together with the likes of Brian Eno.

If this is your first chance to see Re-Tros, we urge you not to miss it. There are few bands that have managed to portray their emotions so clearly through their music and to raise the bar to a global standard.

Supporting Re-Tros will be Nanjing Indie/Experimental outfit - Fading Horizon. Signed to Miniless Records, Fading Horizon are quickly making their name in China's populating Indie music scene with their signature lo-fi Noise Rock numbers. Get ready for a night of dim lighting, deranged atmospheres and static infused sounds worthy of the coming apocalypse.

After the bands play, S.T.D. will be hosting a free after party in LOgO with the STDJs to go into the wee hours of the morning. Maybe we'll hire a public bus any case we suggest you come unprotected...

Digital Love Encore and such

This post is a bit late butttt I've been extremely busy, extremely tired and extremely something else which I can't put my finger on. Thanks to the hundreds of you for coming out to support Pitchtuner. Thanks for making all of us stay til 7am and party with you! haha we love it. It was a great success and Pitchtuner thank all of you for supporting in hordes.

With Digital Love Encore just tomorrow night, I should probably be in getting some rest (if last week is any indication of what to expect this week) but I'll be out and about. Scoping what's happening in this concrete maze we live in. Don't forget that LON will be playing a very special live set tomorrow. Mr Clumsy will be our honoured guest on decks and from what I've heard it sounds pretty hawt.

I don't have too much too say right now but see you soon!

Oh, also check out Fucked Up's blog about their little trip to PRC. We miss you so much, guy!

til tomorrow for some Digital Love!

Fucked Up in Nanjing Road Trip on SPIN Earth!

Fortunately, for those of you that missed out on the road trip to Nanjing for Fucked Up's first show in China, our road trip competition winner (Smart Shanghai - What's your most fucked up experience) Jay Caplan brought along his video recorder. Well Jay has edited the trip and put it into a digestable few minutes. It's recently been accepted by SPIN Earth, a community started by SPIN Magazine which allows people from all around the world to experience music in other countries. We suggest you check it out!

Thanks Jay!

Weekend Wrap Up - Fucked Up in Shanghai

Hey Team!!

Sorry for the late post, but I've just been a little tied up with post-Saturday obligations. Mainly trying to find the owners of various limbs, teeth...etc. etc.

But DAMN! What a show. Even that flash cyclone had little effect on all the people that turned up at LOgO to watch what was a fantastic display of live music from all bands. Big ups to support acts Crazy Mushroom, MOFOs and The Rogue Transmission.

Basically, if you were there then you witnessed arguably one of the best live Punk Rock shows ever in Shanghai. It was fun, loud, distorted, energetic, sweaty and pretty balls out in general. Fucked Up absolutely loved the chance to play for everyone and hopefully we will be seeing them again in the not too distant future. Be sure to keep an eye and ear out for the trail of destruction which seems to follow them.

From behalf of S.T.D. we want to say thank you to everyone for taking care of one another in the depths of the Fucked Up mosh pit. Thanks to everyone involved on what was a beautiful Fucked Up experience. See you this Saturday at Pitchtuner!
