Below is our complete Razor Crusade news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
Hardcore/rock outfit Razor Crusade have now disbanded. Vocalist Ivo Jansen "suffers from too many problems with his voice" and has been forced to step down to avoid permanent damage. Rather than replace their singer (as they did in 2003) the group chose to call it quits. During the past three years, Razor Crusade has released material with Deathwish Inc. and Relfections Records.
After a succesful first hardcore-festival in the spring of 2004, which was part of the 20th anniversary of the legendary Goudvishal, Reflections Records has teamed up again with the venue and decided to go for a second edition. Confirmed bands include: Converge, Planes Mistaken For Stars, Eighteen Visions, Hopesfall, Razor Crusade, Panic (exclusive reunion show!), Good Clean Fun (their only European show in 2005), Sex Positions, No Turning Back, and Strike First. More bands will be confirmed in the next couple of days.
The festival, which takes place on Saturday the 26th of March at the Musis Sacrum in Arnhem (which was also the home of our first edition), will feature 15 bands, 2 stages. A special website for the festival www.arnhemhardcoremeeting.nl will be launched January 21. In the meantime also check the venue's website www.goudvishal.nl.
Hardcore/rock band Razor Crusade has now officially joined the Deathwish Inc. roster for the release of their new album. Hailing from The Netherlands, the group spawned from the ashes of Reaching Forward and has previously released material with Reflections Records. The new record, entitled "Infinite Water," will hit stores in North America on October 26th via Deathwish (Reflections is handling the release elsewhere). You can download a track from the new album here. Meanwhile, look for the band on tour in Europe this October with Stretch Arm Strong.
