The Vicious Seeds from St. Petersburg on gigs in Turku and Tampere

In mid-August, Komitea will astonish the Finnish audience by bringing the instrumental funk messiahs of The Vicious Seeds on couple of gigs in Turku and Tampere. The band is going to do a mini-tour with Princes of Nigeria, who are of course well-known of their past Komitea connections.

You’ll be able to see the bands in Turku at the MAD Pride event by the River Aura on 15th of August, and again in the same evening at Baari. The admission is free to both of these concerts.

On Friday 17th of August the bands will play at Bar Edgar, Loimaa, and on Saturday 18th of August they’ll shake asses at Club Vastavirta in Tampere with Ismaila Sane’s ETHNIC! and Jamora.

You and your groovy hips are warmly welcome!

Pics from Aurajoki riverside gig Saturday 16th of June

A couple of Komitea artists hit Aurajoki river banks in Turku last Saturday.

Rane & Co. served blues from Aurajoki delta (a.k.a. “Turku Archipelago” by its playful nickname).

Kivireki frightened kids and police by cursing like freshwater pirates. Ten thousand thundering typhoons!

The audience liked the music, and the amount of coins we found in the guitar bag afterwards surprised us. “Goddamit! This was probably the first Komitea event ever that made profit!” someone exclaimed, before bursting into tears (of joy).

The next river bank show will be on 7th of July. Welcome, you bashi-bazouks and tin hatted tyrants!

“Rakkaus” by V/P is the first Komitea lp

With their new release Rakkaus (“Love”), V/P, who’ve become known of their raffish punk’n’roll, steps into new dimensions as a band – and simultaneously as a Komitea artist as well.

Here and there you may notice even serious undertones in their songs now. On the other hand, Rakkaus is also the first longplay released by Komitea.

You’ll find the album on all the major digital platforms. Below you can listen it on Spotify.

New music videos from Rane & Co. and Princes of Nigeria

Back in February, Rane & Co. retreated to the barrenly beautiful island of Jurmo to shoot a video for their love song This Love Is for Real.

Meanwhile, Princes of Nigeria shot a video for their tune I Oppressed People at the Twisted Films studios. The song is dedicated to all the riot polices around the world.

Two weeks ago Princes also hopped at the Noise for Fiction studio to record their next single (With My) Koro-Koro Eyes. You can expect the release during the summer months or thereabouts.
