We are glad to report that one of our favorite Slovenian electro-punk bands, Kontradikshn, is busy touring this summer. Since the beginning of July and through October, frontman Petar Stojanovíc and the boys will hit stages in Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czechoslovakia, Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, and the Ukraine. And they seem to be loving it. In July, Stojanovíc wrote, via email: ” Yes, we have a lot of dates for this year, can’t really wait for all of them! This weekend we already had first open-air experience and it went great!”
In addition, Stojanovíc told me that the band is currently writing and recording songs for the follow-up to their debut album, “Reframing.” He writes: “We recorded 4 new tracks – raw drums, synths and guitars and are planning to record 6 tracks more in August so the new album is already in the pre-production/recording process.” That’s excellent news!
In related Slovenia music news, Karmakoma frontman Enej Mavsar recently told me about his new guitar punk band, Suzi soprano (lower case spelling intentional). Find out more about this exciting venture at www.punkrockbeat.com .
