Clean your ears kids.
Are we transforming?
An absolute masterpiece.
Trying to be in the loop right now is a mess.
Information is moving faster than are fingers are built to type and our ears are constructed to pick up.
Someone has to pull the break soon. We are information junkies. I’m glad there is more then one in this band. I don’t understand how you handle information on your own.
Cutting down on information channels is a start. Choose who you trust and stick with them. For now. Just because information is free doesn’t mean it’s correct.
We are currently constructing. Building bridges and laying out tracks. Reading and learning new things. Turning things around. Looking at the things we do from another perspective. And the things we have done. Unlearning old habits to make room for new ones. We are finally at ease with our selfs. Watching the world fall around us. Pointing at it while calmly saying “we told you so”.
Out of the ashes like a phoenix.
WASHINGTON YOU HAVE A PROBLEM

The chief Raoni cries when he learns that brazilian president Dilma released the beginning of construction of the hydroelectric plant of Belo Monte, even after tens of thousands of letters and emails addressed to her and which were ignored as the more than 600 000 signatures. That is, the death sentence of the peoples of Great Bend of the Xingu river is enacted. Belo Monte will inundate at least 400,000 hectares of forest, an area bigger than the Panama Canal, thus expelling 40,000 indigenous and local populations and destroying habitat valuable for many species - all to produce electricity at a high social, economic and environmental cost, which could easily be generated with greater investments in energy efficiency.
Please if you are reading this take 30 seconds of your time to reblog or at least read this. Even if it doesn’t match the “theme” of your blog or if you think it does not affect you. LOOK at that man crying.
We should care about indigenous people and want them to have complete respect. He shouldn’t be crying alone.
different day, different asshole.
same’s happening here in Chile.
Tonight we will kick of our german tour with a show at Project 7 in our second home town Magdeburg. Since the apocalyptical prophecies of the nutty priest of the big republic in the west went terribly wrong we can start our own prophecy tonight.
This is the new era. The era of WE.
In one week we will depart for our German tour. Dates are posted at www.torpedoband.com and while you are there be sure to order our album WE at the same time. WE will be released in a limited version on vinyl that we will bring with us on the tour.
All our heroes in one place, in one night. Classical versions of our favorite music. I was shocked when I saw the poster. How perfect can a concert be? Great inspiration for our upcoming tour. Maybe we’ll squeeze a symphony orchestra in those tiny dirty german rock clubs.
May 6th at Södra Teatern in Stockholm. A night to remember.
It’s here! WE are here! At least as ones and zeros. As you’re waiting for the vinyl, get the data here http://itunes.apple.com/se/album/we/id433460894
A year ago when we were gathering art, movies, sounds and photos to our inspiration map for the upcoming recording of WE. Among many other great artists we discovered Burtynsky and his beautiful work. Over the last ten years he has travelled the world photographing the terrible damage oil is doing to our world. It’s weird how such how such awful and terrifying things can be so beautiful.
Anyway. Fotografiska (museum of photography in Stockholm) is now holding an exhibition with his work April 22nd to June 26th. All you swedes and tourists must see it.
