Concert review: Attila, The Word Alive and Carcer City by Alex Bock

April 30, 2017

  Munich, Backstage Halle, April 25th, 2017 Another night in my 2nd living room… only one of the venues was occupied that night, the Halle and I was heading there to see Attila with special guests The Word Alive and Carcer City. Opening band was Carcer City. They’re a five piece from the UK, signed to Stay Sick Recordings (Chris Fronzak’s label). Their sounds is probably nothing really new, but what new band can create something that hasn’t been there before? Never the less, they played a good live set.

They have just released a video for their track, Band Aid and lead singer Allison Iraheta states, “This video was shot entirely in Taft, Calif., one of the 30 cities that brought us to their town last fall on our first-ever fully crowdfunded American tour. We wanted to capture our experience, both visually and emotionally. When we were driving through the country and staying in people’s homes, it was very clear to us that this is not a divided country. What we saw were good people dazed by hard times and towns struggling for the dignity of better days. We have no political agenda or affiliation. Our agenda is love.” Check out the video here:   You can pre-order the new EP by heading over to Visit their social media sites and stay up to date on their latest news. Information & Links:
