BORN FROM PAIN Announces 'Survival' Record-Release Gigs

Dutch metallic hardcore heroes BORN FROM PAIN have issued the following update:

"We are doing three special shows in two days to celebrate the release of [the new BORN FROM PAIN album] 'Survival'. We chose two cult record stores for the special in-house gigs: Coretex in Berlin, Germany and De Rots in Antwerp, Belgium. There will be limited room so make sure you're there in time!!! Of course the third show will be at our old stompin' ground Smiley's in Brunssum, keeping the tradition as our release show venue in Holland intact... and to us it's always special to play back home. Also, very limited room, so show up in time!"

The details are as follows:

Oct. 31 - Coretex - Berlin (Kreuzberg), GER
Nov. 01 - De Rots – Antwerp, BEL
Nov. 01 - Smiley's - Brunssum (Limburg), NETH

"Sound Of Survival", a new song from BORN FROM PAIN, is available for download at this location. The track comes off "Survival", which is scheduled for release in Europe on November 3 via Metal Blade Records (except Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy, where it will arrive on October 31). The CD is said to be "musically [as] uncompromising as ever with an own twist in groove, melody, heaviness and harshness. Lyrically, [it is] more than ever making a critical and uncompromising stand concerning the state of the world today."

Commented singer Rob Franssen: "We are very happy the way the album turned out. We have invested a lot of time and energy in it and we are very pleased with the result. We feel we have integrated the new vocal sound into our music pretty well and concentrated especially on developing our sound further without losing our usual musical trademarks like heaviness, aggression and groove. We feel this is our best work easily up until now."

He continued: "We've taken a step further what our critical view on the ruling power structures is concerned, and thus the state of the World of today. We feel it is important to have a voice in times like these where the people are constantly lied to by ruling powers. Robbed of self-worth, pushed in the dirt and cheated out of their last lifesavings under the veil of lies. We feel it is important to look further than the 8 o' clock news, mainstream radio or the online news agencies. We are trying to be critical and create awareness that there is more than meets the eye and people should get informed and look beyond to what they tell us is obvious. We are actively pushing for a critical agenda here and are not accepting our current situation. It is time to have a voice before it's too late. Look for truth!"
