THE FOURTH PUBLIC DIS-SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Rites is a five piece hardcorepunk band from the south of the Netherlands. They play high energetic hardcore songs with a punkrock-twist. In November 2017 Rites released their 3rd EP ‘Misery is Company’ on vinyl (Smithsfoodgroup DIY and Cult Culture) and on tape (Nosebleed records).
The songs express Louisa’s frustrations and feeling on living in today’s fucked up world. Rites list Strike Anywhere, Cruel Hand, Mouthpiece, Paint It Black, Cro-Mags and Dag Nasty as their influences while they don’t sound like any of them, you can see how listening to those bands has played their part in defining their own unique and authentic sound.
Latchstring are a mildly noisy collective of liberal socialist feminist leftists, punk hardcore emo indie rockers and meat eating vegan vegetarians, some of whom will drink all your beer but all of whom will drink your coffee and judge you on your books and records. We’re all trying to be better people, but you could have worse house guests than us, you know?
