DeeCRACKS and Kingons’ passports, money, and personal belongings stolen one day into European tour

Because there haven’t been enough bad things happening to good people lately, Austria’s DeeCRACKS and their Japanese brothers in pop-punk Kingons had their passports, money, and personal belongings stolen out of their van – which now has a broken window – earlier today.

“SH*T!! Someone broke into our van in Italy while we were having pizza! All the passports of us and the Japanese are gone as well as money and most bags! Some of us only have what they are wearing now anymore… Luckily, no one got hurt and all our gear is still here! We are at the police station now. This might take a while, hope we make today’s show somehow…”

Both bands will be touring Europe for the next week and half.  More details on where you’ll be able to catch them can be found below.

If you go to a show, help ’em out and buy some stuff from the merch table!  If you don’t live in Europe but you wanna help, here’s DeeCRACKS’ Bandcamp page, and here’s the Kingons webstore.

Album Review: DeeCRACKS – “Beyond Medication”

Austrian pop-punk heavyweights DeeCRACKS are known for their no-nonsense approach to the old school pop-punk (dare I say “ramonescore”) sound popularized by seasoned bands like The Queers, Screeching Weasel, etc. and that’s exactly what they deliver on their latest album Beyond Medication. And though the record doesn’t really bring anything completely new or groundbreaking to the table, it’s a phenomenal addition to a great band’s growing catalogue.

The songwriting, as one might expect from a pop-punk record, isn’t extremely complex but it’s still catchy and will keep you singing along for the album’s entirety. The instrumentation is spot on, just like it has been on all of DeeCRACKS’ past releases, with blazing fast drum beats, all down-strummed guitar and bass parts, and vocals that are appropriately gritty.

As for my favorite songs on the album… I think all of the tracks on Beyond Medication are great in their own unique way. Songs like “Dead End Mission,” “Adderall,” and “Terminal Illness” are hard and fast, while others like “Charity Forever,” “Crazy Girl,” and “Summer’s Gone” are much more tame and melodic. One thing they all have in common? They’re awesome!

So if you like bands on the more “punk” side of the pop-punk spectrum (not the shit high school kids are listening to and going to the Warped Tour for), I highly recommend you give DeeCRACKS a chance. They’re a phenomenal band and Beyond Medication is a great record for a new listener to get started off on.

4/5 Stars – Listen to the entire album below.

DeeCRACKS denied entrance to the US; drop off of tour w/ Direct Hit! & Jetty Boys

Austrian pop punkers DeeCRACKS have announced that, due to their lack of US working permits, they have had to drop off remainder of their current North American tour with Direct Hit! and Jetty boys has been cancelled. Here’s what they had to say in a recent blog post:

“Hey everyone,

We are devastated! We were denied re-entry into the USA at a Canadian Border and were sent back to Austria. This was the worst thing that could happen to us and we are deeply sorry to have to cancel all the shows in the US.

What happened was, we were playing these great shows in Canada, that we had working permits for, and were heading to the next show in New Jersey on Monday. We didn’t have any working permits for the US and we knew that, so we made up a little story on how we are just travelling with the Jetty Boys and are just friends of them, and tried to sell it so they let us back in. It was stupid, 2 Austrians in a van full of gear with 2 Americans (Eric and Jon of Jetty Boys)… I mean, hey, we all look like we were in a band, because we are… and we admitted to having played shows in Canada, because we had the permits for that. So the border patrol googled our bands’ names and found all the dates, while we kept on lying. BIG MISTAKE! SUPER STUPID! So they were after us, treating us like terrorists, we apologized for lying and told the truth of course. We never expected getting deported, we thought we will have to pay a fine and pay for permits there or something. It would have all been easier if we wouldn’t have lied to the cops there first. They hated us for that, threatening us with doing time and all.

Then, they found out that we have already played a show in the US, in Lansing, MI. This was a violation to the ESTA waiver program, which is the tourist visa we had. So Matt and I are now banned from it for life. This doesn’t mean we can’t come to the USA anymore, but it’s gonna be harder for us to get a visa. We have to go to the US-embassy in Austria and make an appointment and all that. Matt and I will set up an appointment soon to find out how we could travel to the USA again, as tourist or as a band. We will do whatever we can to make it back over there and play, all legally from now on though. Playing the show in Lansing was seen as a criminal activity, so we had to swear an oath and they took all fingerprints and had mugshots taken. We now have a criminal record in the US, which won’t make it easier for us going over again. We’ll see…”
