Solid Ground Releases Free Farewell EP

Switzerland's permier hardcore band Solid Ground (2003-2008) has left us a final present, a farewell EP released through Let it Burn Records on January 1, 2009. It is titled "This World Keeps Spinning Without You" and is available for free at the band's MySpace page or direct download here. A physical CD version is following in March 2009.

The label comments about Solid Ground's final release:

"'This World Keeps Spinning Without You' is SOLID GROUND's final recording and at the same time their best output since their origin in 2003. These 4 songs simply sum up what hardcore is all about: fast & aggressive music with a strong and honest message. This is raw, tough and pure and most of all it comes from the heart."

Solid Ground To Disband Later This Year

Hardcore band Solid Ground has decided to call it a day, but has plans to continue to tour through this fall and possibly put their last four songs to a recording. Here is a message from Martin SG:

"Some may already have heard the news:

"Solid ground decided to call it a day. Nothing really bad happend. It is just that over the last 1 or 2 years, it was getting harder and harder to keep the band going on a level that we wanted to. Due to job responsibilities, among other duties, we couldn't dedicate as much time to the band as we wanted to.

"However we feel that there is also no reason whatsoever to stop the band right here and now. We are still going to play the bunch of shows this summer that are already booked, plus we want to finish this band in an appropriate way. So we are going to do one last European tour in October. Which by the way is being booked by our friends at Avocado Bookings as i write this.

"We always felt that playing shows is one of the most important and fun things with Solid Ground. So everyone out there that wants to see us one last time, make sure to come out to those last few shows and have fun! Check our website for dates and venues. We definitely will give a 120 % for each and every show - just as we always did.

"After our European tour we will play one official last show here in Switzerland, which will be announced later on.

"The madness is not over yet! If all goes well, we are even going to record the last four songs that we just wrote. We are very proud of these tunes and, like every band, we think our latest stuff is our best! :-) So we feel it would be a shame if those songs would never see the light of day.

"And in case you don't know or i forgot to mention ... the guys in CHEAP THRILLS rule big time!!! check out these boys if you haven't yet."
