Czech Republic streetpunk/Oi! band Cirguz has been hard at work for around a decade, narrowing their focus, harnessing their sound, and playing a shit-ton of shows around the world. The guys definitely have an ‘old-world, traditional’ sound with a working class streetpunk/Oi! vibe. It’s a joy to hear. Oh by the way, did I mention they sing exclusively in Czech? Pretty rad.
The band is getting ready to release their newest material, “Tak Se Sbal”, next week through Pirates Press Records. You can listen to a few of their songs here and get to know a little more about the band.
Here’s what Pirates Press had to say about the signing,
Cirguz is one of the best punk bands this vibrant Eastern European nation brings to the table, period. Unlike lots of other Eastern European punk bands, Cirguz’s songs are all sung in their native Czech; and their message and passion both ring louder as a result.
Touring bands all know how well supported, appreciative and loyal the Czech scene is; For their YEARS of amazing hospitality towards the Pirate family, we’re proud and honored to be able to offer back to that scene, and to the world, such a standout release.
Let’s hope Cirguz decides to travel westbound for some US shows in the near future.
