No folk punk allowed! UK denies visas for Serbian punks; they retaliate with a rather amusing protest song

Apparently the UK government has no interest in allowing Serbian punk act The Worldly Savages to play their folk noise at our lovely festivals. In trying to stop the spread of folk punk, the government saw it fit to deny visas to half the band members! It is not the first time I’ve heard of bands having problems this year; who knows how ridiculous it will become after Brexit!

The band is scheduled to play Boomtown Festival this coming Friday; the good news is they will still be playing, the sad news is that it will be a stripped down version with half the members left behind in Serbia!

Well the band was not too happy about the situation and took to youtube to protest UK visa restrictions. You can check the rather amusing video for “21st Century Racism” below. It’s actually very catchy and raises a good point about border controls.

Belos has been in the studio, polishing up her debut album Rhombithian with producer Matt Jordan, and will be featured at this years Fest. The album drops October 10th. Congrats!



The Homeless Gospel Choir release music video for “Crazy”

The Homeless Gospel Choir have released a new music video for the song “Crazy”. Watch it below.

Derek had this to say about the song:

“Crazy is a song about me and my feelings. Sometimes you try to explain the weird shit that’s going on inside of your head, heart & life to other people and you can’t make sense of it. This song is a journey of that. I was very fortunate to have my dear brothers Frank Iero & Dave Watt collaborate with me to make this song and video so special”.

The Homeless Gospel Choir will release their new album “Home” on August 18th via A-F Records.
