It was a long time coming.
C’est parti pour l’aventure.

Can’t complain about the way we live today.

Our second North American tour was perfect. The almighty Prevenge are the best. The fest was Incredible… We feel so lucky, being able to meet, to play, to party with people from all over the world.

Here is a video of our song “So long wonder”, no animals were harmed in the making of this film.

We are now “home”, we were on the road last week end with our buddies from One thousand Directions and Guerilla Poubelle, and we’re playing a hometown show with Guerrilla Poubelle and Great Cynics on December 27th, then we’ll take two months off to work on new songs…

UVAV. 

We’re coming back.

Here we are, enven though we don’t really realize yet we’re almost ready to get into a plane and fly back to North America.
It’s hard to express how excited we are about this. The Fest. Damn…

Here are all the show!

And here we are, we made it back home. Safe and sound. 27 shows later. This tour, maybe because of its unprecedented length, was again something new, something different for us. More than just fun on the road, this is a completely different way to live a life. So yes, once again I’m going to thank each and everyone who booked a show for us, cooked for us, gave us something to drink, a place to sleep, bought a record, or just shared a little bit of this with one of us. This might sound a little bit cliché but it isn’t, we’ll never take for granted that people might feel some sympathy for our insignificant band. So thank you.  And then thanks to our tour buddies. Daria on the first week, and Charly Fiasco and 3 next. You already know what we think. We love you. Now let’s get back to work, we hope to see everyone again soon.

This is beyond words. Having someone, somewhere who felt connected enough to what we do, to what we say or to what we are to have it under his skin forever.

This is beyond words. Having someone, somewhere who felt connected enough to what we do, to what we say or to what we are to have it under his skin forever.

We are working on our July/August tour and it’s getting more and more precise! If you know anyone who can help, or if you can help personnaly get in touch with us!

To be more specific we are looking for shows:
- In Spain
- Dans le Sud de la France
- In Northern Italy
- In the West half of Poland
- Between Berlin in Dusseldorf

Get in touch with us here or on wank4peace(at)hotmail(dot)! Give us some cool names, share that on the internetz!

This will be a hell of a month.
Cheers

So, finally, this year we’ll play Fest. Yes. Fest, The Fest, in Florida. We’re super stoked.
Plus we’ll come to North America for an around-the-fest tour. And share some shows again with the best: Prevenge. More infos someday.
You can can check the Fest website. A few bands are worth checking :) http://www.thefestfl.com/fest12/

: Wank For Peace / Prevenge Tour

Chris from Prevenge/Pavones Records wrote a little something about our tour together in North America. Please read this, because this is exactly how we feel about them. I wish I wrote this myself. But those guys are just better than we are.

Sometimes you never know what you’ll end up with. Wank For Peace flew across the Atlantic Ocean to play some shows with Prevenge and support the split that the two bands had just put out. If you’re in a band that has done some touring, you know that sometimes you end up touring with bands you…
