Jon Creeden joins Bearded Punk Records family Posted 15 Feb 2016

We discovered our next Bearded Punk Records international family member when one of the most respected dudes in the Belgian punk rock scene approached us to do a show for him. Our jaw almost dropped to the floor when he heard his very first demo track Nail biter. 'The song Hot Water Music is just waiting to write' the dude said. He wasn't kidding. Immediately we checked if this amazing band was up for doing something together and well... our next BPR baby was born!

We are super stoked to announce that we're teaming up with THE FEST 14 / Pouzza FEST '15 act Jon Creeden & His Flying Hellfish (CAN) to release an exclusive limited amount (100) of hand made collector demo tapes for their up and coming Euro tour with Chris Snelgrove Music. The tape will contain all the The Flying Hellfish demo songs released so far + some previously unreleased Jon Creeden solo tracks. Also one of those snazzy download codes for convenience.

The tape will be available starting the 25th of February. If you want to be sure you get one you can pre-order yours now. Or you can just get one at one of him personally at one of his up and coming Euro shows.

Is it worth it? Yeah it's worth it!

For I Am joins Bearded Punk Records squad Posted 02 Feb 2016

Over the past few years, the punk rock community has become a close family to me. A family that’s always been there for me during the rougher times in my life. My best friends in the world (the most beautiful human beings you'll ever meet), conveniently enough, all play in the same band together. Needless to say that I really, really, really wanted them to join our label.

I’ve watched these guys (and gal) grow from being a very promising fun bunch on stage to a major force to be reckoned with, within the Belgian punk rock scene. In under 8 months they’ve completely sold out the entire first pressing of their debut EP, headed out on their very first European tour and played with punk rock greats as The Smith Street Band, ASTPAI and Chumped. Their debut EP ’15 Minutes Late’ is a small masterpiece and it would be a shame to deny everyone that still has to discover it the pleasure of being able to physically purchase it. Sooo… We’re SO thrilled (really, really, really thrilled…) to announce that the amazing For I Am will re-release 15 Minutes Late via Bearded Punk Records and thus make our cosy little family EVEN cooler!

15 Minutes late will be available again just in time for Valentines day but you can already pre-order the thing! We'll keep you updated on more insanely cool For I Am news very soon, in the meantime kick back, relax, go give these sweethearts a like and re-listen to one of the funnest Belgian punkrock EPs in the last 10 years…

Listen to Hans Roofthooft (F.O.D.) & Red Cloud’s split EP in full NOW! Posted 15 Jan 2016

You know how you get something special in hands and want to share it with the world like immediately? Well we got our greasy fingers on a fine little gem a good month ago and we’ve felt SO bad for keeping it to ourselves all of this time. Today the moment’s finally here to let Hans Roofthooft and Red Cloud’s split out of his solitary confinement (aka my downloads folder) and into your ears!

When we say special, we really mean special. Not only is this the third and most solid unaccompanied release of Generation 84’s powerful vocalist Teun V.A. ( Red Cloud), but also the very first solo release of the best Belgian punk rock frontman of this generation: Hans Roofthooft. Wow oh wow what a partnering up did that turn out to be. Hans and Teun’s first conjoined solo endeavour is an honest, heartfelt, emotional ride perfect to play away this dreary Friday. From Red Clouds spine tingling cover of F.O.D.’s classic ‘Carry On’ (feat. the talented For I Am lead lady Hanne Terweduwe) to Hans Roofthooft emotionally loaded ‘Sally’. This EP is a must listen.

Get your karaoke on with You Nervous'? first single 'Just Say' Posted 27 Dec 2015

You karaoke? You can! You Nervous? whipped you up a sick first artwork video from their up and coming debut album ''Furry Tales". Unleash your inner karaoke diva by singing along to their very first single ‘Just Say’ (that youtube thingy below).

The CD release party is still planned for the 23rd of January at Gent Glas. Remember: dresscode = furry animals!

We also put a pre-order online so you can buy Furry Tales without even LEAVING YOUR HOUSE! What magical times do we live in huh?

Us and You Nervous? are a thing now Posted 14 Dec 2015

Guess who’s back, back again…?

No it’s not the Backstreet Boys. But you’re close! Belgian 2015 Punk Rock Holiday act You Nervous? is back (from never really been gone, I guess?) with their FIRST EVER FULL LENGTH: “Furry Tales”. An 11 song counting melodic/pop/skate punk banger that’s going to flip the Belgian punkscene upside down, and then the other way up again.

Furry Tales will be released on the 23rd of January via Bearded Punk Records. Their releaseshow will be held on the same day (weird huh?) in Gent Glas! Dresscode: Furry, forrest and boy-scouts. We’re not even joking! The guys already arts-and-crafted you a sick teaser video. Check it out below.

Hans Roofthooft (F.O.D.) / Red Cloud announce split Posted 10 Dec 2015

It’s always great to see cool friends do cool stuff! Hans Roofthooft (F.O.D.) and Red Cloud (Teun Van Aerschot // Generation 84, Break Of Day), two of Belgium’s most amazing and unique vocalists teamed up for a surprise 5 song split release. The guys chucked me the whole thing just a few hours ago and asked me if I wanted to drop a couple of tunes for you today. “Fuck yeah” was my obvious answer. As this is probably the most hasty release I’ve ever done, I’m not even going to try and act prepared. I'll just let the music do all the talking for once...

Coma Commander stream 'Council Of The Jackalope' in full Posted 23 Nov 2015

When we first started this label, I would've never thought that I would get the opportunity to work with one of the best bands in the Belgian music scene. Being heavily influenced by class acts as RVIVR and Latterman, it might come as no surprise that Coma Commander quickly became my new all time favorite Belgian band. Today I'm, (WE'RE), extremely proud to finally present the new EP to you guys. 'Council Of The Jackalope' is one wild ride of just raw, catchy punk tunes and well amongst the best things you'll hear the next few months. From fast Off With Their Heads-esque bangers as 'Christopher Robin And The Giant Blisters' to Iron Chic-ish melodic stuff as 'Broken Bottles And Empty Veins', we're more than sure that you'll find something in this you like. You can buy the album in our shop!
