Athens aftermath / Tour prelude

We just came back from a superamazing weekend in Athens. On Friday we played a show there, which was really good. A lot of people, good bands, good energy, good feedback. Thanks to everyone who came. That was a nice welcome!
The rest of the weekend was all about great hangouts and sightseeing. Athens is an impressive city. You should go there, if you've never been there and if you get the chance. We hung out with the guys from RIVALS, who organised the show and also played there. On Saturday Julian recorded some guest vocals for them. The result can be listened to on their myspace.

Anyways, our next tour kicks off this Friday with the Belgium shows. We are really excited about it all. You should definitely check out our tour-buddies ILLS, which is a real good band. Here are the tourdates. Hopefully see you at one of these shows, beloved reader.

Wolves 7" has just reached its fourth press

Blacktop Records and Team Ritual both are happy to announce that our "Wolves" 7" EP, first released in December 2006, has just reached its fourth press. This little piece of vinyl has been a very nice companion, so we are glad that this record will continue to be available to anyone who's interested in it. This new edition is pressed on clear vinyl.

To celebrate this, Blacktop Records offers a very special deal: An exclusive shirt + the 7" + a free Blacktop CD altogether for only 12 Euros (incl. shipping within Germany), while stocks last. Check if your size is still available: http://blacktoprecords.de/ritual

We're supporting UNBROKEN in London

Dear friends,

we're more than happy to announce that we'll be supporting UNBROKEN on their single European show on October 16th. As you might be able to imagine, this means the world to us. UNBROKEN is one of those bands that got us into hardcore and that induced us to start a band ourselves. So this is totally mind-blowing to us!
We'd be happy to see some familiar faces there. Some tickets are still available.

Take care,
Team R.
