Venerea Release Third Single From Their Upcoming Album

Venerea

The third single by Swedish skate punks Venerea is the most political one of the new album. 

“The lyrics to Blind Faith are from the point of view of a lone refugee child’s father, who could not leave”, singer John explains.

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 new LP/CD Euro Trash on Sbäm Records, filled to the brim with instant classic bangers such as 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 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.
