LANDMINE HEART to release debut 7″ on Aggrobeat Records

Landmine HeartLandmine Heart, a four-headed dutch punk beast consisting of members who served the last 20 years in bands like: Beans, Strike First, Shaggable Sluts, The Yuppies and Bitter Grounds. All the members have been playing in bands since the ‘90s and this history combined with the groups ability to draw from different punk genres, enables the creation of a catchy sing-along sound that will make sure that any audience feels like they are part of the show. Landmine Heart plays highly energetic punk rock. Mix this with the attitude of The Damned and The Stooges, the anger of Black Flag, the sleaze of The Hellacopters and the power of Motörhead, then you get the explosive sound of Landmine Heart:  Anthemic, filled with hooks and with lyrics  relating to real life, a style firmly embedded in the historic roots of punk.

Originated/Jinxed in 2010 after the demise of their old bands. Landmine Heart was all set to conquer the scene but a series of setbacks: dead, depressions, addictions, raising a family, marriages, divorces or other bands, all conspired against the band and the momentum was lost. Or one could say “life took over”. An occasional gig here and there and a rough and rowdy live recording, made with a iphone, was the only sign of life of the band in years. But that recording and the shows gained them enough credits not to die a silent dead.

In late 2016, the band returned invigorated with a new understanding of itself and pumped with a year’s worth of frustration. Jinxed from the start and more dead than alive the band reclaimed the stage and took no prisoners. But what once was a gathering of punks, skins, bikers, junkies, lowlifes and non-specified, was turned into an artfair for beggars and hangers-on. The smell of sweat and danger was replaced by the smell of roses and patchouli. The sound of the streets turned into the sound of art-school trendies who cry and whine and the only danger was the sticker in the back of the guitar amp. The boys were from the wrong side of town and didn’t quite fit in with the ‘art school’ scene.The band carried on regardless, and somewhat helpless as something called punk, that housed everything they stood for died a slow dead in a city once internationally known for it’s  punk/hardcore scene and fuck you-attitude. Sick of what was left of that scene they helped to build, the band regained their strength on the ashes and ruins that where left behind . Eager to bring back what was lost on the way.

Bruised, broken, bitter, down but not out. These words define Landmine Heart through out the years. It formed and shaped a sound of bitterness with a little bit of hope. But…….if you step on it, it will explode!

Aggrobeat Records (The Oppressed, The Warriors, Oi Polloi, Angelic Upstarts) will release the bands debut 7″ in October.
