VILD Music is glad to introduce Van Dammes, a fast and loud garage punk band from Helsinki. Some might already know the band from winning the ‘demo of the week’ contest of Radio Helsinki last year. Today on February 3rd. Van Dammes releases a single titled Vesna (Flash In The Night) from their upcoming EP, Better Than Sex. Vesna (Flash in the Night) is about a Serbian flight attendant Vesna Vulović who holds the world record, according to the Guinness Book of Records, for surviving the highest fall without a parachute: 10,160 metres. This happend as her plane crashed in 1972.
Have a listen:
Better Than Sex, their second EP, will be released digitally worldwide on VILD Recordings on February 26th. 2015. This brief but loud four-song recording was taped in the Finnish capital at the same place where The Ramones performed already in the 1970’s. It is impossible not to hear that fact when listening to this upbeat work of art.
The VD EP, Van Dammes’ debut, was released in April 2014, and it was followed by a short but turbulent tour. The release gained airplay on popular Finnish radio stations YleX and Radio Helsinki. It was also critically acclaimed in Danish, British, Canadian, Australian, American and Dutch reviews. Also, three official music videos were dropped from The VD EP.
