After their massive single “Summer of 94” spreading a very positive vibe – the next single release for Venerea’s new album also does have something to do with spreading, and positivity. But well, in a way different way…
“A Case Of Corona highlights a positive side effect of Covid (for a-holes.) It describes a relationship running on empty, so the narrator fantasizes about his partner getting sick so that he can feel needed again.”, says the band about the new song “A Case Of Corona”.
“Practice at empathizing with fictional idiots is only one reason why listening to skate punk will make you a better person. Physical fitness is another since the cracking tune will surely make you want to jump about enthusiastically”, explains the band further.
The single will be released on 23rd July via SBÄM Records.
Venerea first rose to infamy during the Swedish mid-nineties punk boom, with genre-defining albums such as Both Ends Burning, Shake Your Booty, and One Louder.
They have toured extensively through Europe as well as occasional visits to Asia and North America, alternating headlining stints with festivals and package tours such as Vans Off The Wall, sharing stages with everyone from Snfu and Bad Religion to NoFx and Propagandhi.
The next chapter begins on August 26th with the release of the new LP/CD Euro Trash on Sbäm Records, filled to the brim with instant classic bangers such as the pre-release download single Summer Of ‘94 featuring guest vocals from Kola (Millencolin), Geir (Adhesive) & Ingo (No Fun At All) but even without the all star cast they have never sounded better.
The band’s popular brand of melodic hardcore & dual guitar/dual vocal approach is instantly recognizable & the new tunes will stick like glue. The lyrics keep coming from out of the left field, with topics including possible byproducts of covid, morbid rubbernecking, needy musicians, forced adoption, extreme nerdery, obese hijinx, the biography of an ex-drummer’s wife (in two parts), requited self-deception, the imaginary world, & the importance of sucking.
Euro Trash was expertly produced by Gustav Brunn (Atlas Losing Grip) at legendary Tambourine Studios, Malmö.
