Super thrilled to announce that we have the legends from
The Crowd now on our roster. On tour for the very first time in Europe next summer ( 2017)
Give them a very warm welcome !!!

 The Crowd kicked the doors wide open for the Huntington Beach punk scene. Their songs on the seminal Beach Blvd compilation helped make it required listening for all OC punks, now and then. “Modern Machine,” which received heavy airplay on Rodney on the ROQ’s radio show, laid the framework for the now classic OC pop/punk sound. “Right Time” from their debut LP, A World Apart was featured on first Rodney on the ROQ compilation. 

An early influence for bands such as TSOL, The Vandals, and many early HB bands, they continue to deliver their hard driving Buzzcocks from the beach sound. From the classic Letter Bomb CD, the Punk Off CD to their latest single, “No Other/Straight Down” on Hostage Records, the band remains the purveyor of their traditional HB sound. 


This gonna be a hot summer. a lot of oldschool northamerican  bands are on the road.

pretty stoked to have TSOL - CH3 - DOA - MDC and NAKED AGGRESSION back in Europe!

support the bands - go to the shows - go bananas!

All money goes to www.sea-watch.org . We also collecting  donations in kind for some Refugee Camps in Kiel. On October 1st we will announce a list with the goods that are really needed.

Die MS Seawatch ist ein privates Schiff, das im Seegebiet zwischen Malta und der libyschen Küste erste Hilfe an Flüchtlingsbooten in Seenot leistet , während Verantwortliche in der EU sich eher auf Abschreckung konzentrieren und somit tote Flüchtlinge billigend in Kauf nehmen.

Des weiteren möchten wir alle Besucher des Konzerts dazu aufrufen Sachspenden mitzubringen, die wir an Kieler Flüchtlingsunterkünfte übergeben möchten.

Bitte nicht irgendwas mitbringen. Wir werden kurz vor dem Konzert eine mit den Verantwortlichen der Flüchtlinsgunterkünfte abgestimmte Liste der dringend benötigten Sachen HIER veröffentlichen. Wir werden diese Liste erst kurz vorher online stellen, weil sich der Bedarf immer wieder ändert.

LIVE spielen DIE BULLEN aus Kiel und HALLO KWITTEN aus Flensburg!

D.O.A. farewell tour!

After 35 years and 14 studio albums, canadian  punk legends D.O.A. calling it quits. They will say goodbye to europe and the uk with a 3 week final  farewell tour this October.
The band is calling it quits as Joe Keithley will focus more on his political work for Canada`s New Democratic Party (NDP). "I’ve been working on trying to change Canada and this world into a better place from outside the system for the last 35 years," Keithley shares in a press release on the northamerican final tour, "now I will do my utmost to effect that change from inside the system. That’s why I am running for the only progressive party, the NDP."
The band released last september their 14th and last record " We Come In Peace".
We Come In Peace' is as much a declaration of D.O.A.'s mission on this, the band's 14th studio album of all-new material, as it is a way to identify this collection of songs by serving as the album's title. Always a fiercely political band, D.O.A. have upped the ante here by jumping headfirst into the fray of the messy and chaotic shit-storm that is today's less-than-stable worldwide political environment, tackling the financial crisis, the Occupy movement (the song "Occupy feat. JELLO BIAFRA), shady dealings by top officials, systemic bigotry, andother important issues – both those that have been ripped from the headlines and those that have been culled from buried stories and the underground press."
First Dates will be anounced very soon!

We`ve got pretty much the shittiest news ever. Todd, the TOYS THAT KILL  and FYP singer went to the hospital 3 days ago to follow up on an eye problem and they found a detached retina and had to do emergency surgery. in the last two days wie tried very hard to save at least some parts of the tour but its impossible if he dont wanna be blind! We are very sorry, but we are forced to postpone the tour! We will catch up on everythin next spring/same period! Get well soon Todd!

Below a statement from Todd!

"Some pretty lame news here. We had to cancel our upcoming Toys That Kill Europe tour due to a detached retina in my right eye. When the doctor diagnosed me last week she rushed me into the retina specialist for emergency surgery that same day. I told them I was going to Europe next wednesday and they both replied with "No your not! If you get on a plane you will lose your eye!". It felt like a knife through my skull. I feel some horrible emptiness inside when canceling shows but this takes the cake. It's gonna be tough to imagine where we should be every givin night for the next month. The great shows we are missing and the fun times that should be having. I'll have my right eye to keep me company at least. It's so hard to get all of us,due to work schedules, to go to Europe and we were seconds away. Bad timing to say the least. They said I was lucky to not be blind in that eye already so there is some positives here but still...shit! Very sincere apologies to every promoter who booked a show and especially Benny & Fanski/Klownhouse for booking the tour and the Rockstar Records/Aachen crew for their help overseas. We will try to make it up asap!" -Todd C.

EUROPE! in cooperation with our US-Partner Agency BUCKET CITY AGENCY we helped to get you some BLACK FLAG dates in May! EXITED?

14.05. LUX-Esch/Alzette @ Rockhal*
15.05. ITA-Milano @ Alcatraz*
16.05. SUI-Zurich @ Dynamo*
17.05. ITA-Rome, @ Orion*
18.05 GER-Hunxe @ Ruhrpott Rodeo
20.05 AUS-Vienna @ Arena*

BLACK FLAG has reformed and is in the process of putting finishing touches on a new album with founder Greg Ginn on guitar and Ron Reyes (Jealous Again era) on vocals.

The one constant member throughout the history of BLACK FLAG, Ginn -- named one of Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists Of All Time" -- defined the west coast punk sound and the DIY ethos of punk rock. Greg Ginn also currently plays with Good For You and Greg Ginn And The Royal We.
Ron Reyes of Decline Of The Western Civilization fame was the BLACK FLAG vocalist from The Church / Jealous Again era. Reyes also currently plays guitar in Piggy.

The seeds of this reformation were planted when Reyes invited Ginn to perform with him at his birthday party some two and half years ago. Needless to say -- the party was a blast and the two vowed at that time to work on some songs together. The fruition of those efforts will culminate in the release of the new album later this year.
Far from being a one-time grab, this reformation has BLACK FLAG recording and touring extensively both in the US and abroad.

Greg Ginn - Guitar
Ron Reyes - Vocals

We are pretty stoked to anounce that we will book a handfull of Club and Festival Shows for F.Y.P !!!

F.Y.P (aka Five Year Plan) was Todd Congelliere's punk rock predecessor to his current bands TOYS THAT KILL and UNDERGROUND RAILROAD TO CANDYLAND. The group began as a one man band with a cheap Fisher Price drum machine providing the beat (per 7" liner notes).

From 1989, when Todd began work on the first EP until disbanding in 1999, F.Y.P gained notoriety (not to mention a noticeable increase in talent) in the DIY punk scene for touring the world several times bankrolled and set up by the Conge (per liner notes to last album entitled Toys That Kill).

While still a band, during its ten year span, F.Y.P toured Europe several times, Japan once, and the U.S. numerous times. They released over a dozen records on RECESS RECORDS before disbanding and received coverage in music magazines such as Maximumrocknroll,  Razorcake and Flipside.

Now, more than 12 years after their last show they just started to play selected Club and Festival shows ( including the FEST)  in the states to be followed by a handfull of Euro Shows in April and May 2013.


We are sorry to anounce the ELWAY /LEAGUES APART /BANGERS show in PLYMOUTH,UK is cancelled.the show moved to EXETER @the Cavern. Thanx to the nice folks who make that happen last minute!

Also Last Monday @ The Ramones Museum, they had
about half of ELWAY`s merch stolen. 200 shirts, 100 7"s, 50 cds, and some coozies, stickers and handbags were taken. All in all, about 3000 euro worth of stuff was taken. It's shitty, because you just know whoever stole it couldn't possibly do shit with it so why the fuck take it? Anyway, here they are with about 6 weeks of tour left without nearly enough merch to survive.

Please make sure to go to the shows to show them your support and buy some merch! they also open up their paypal acount, so if you have a little money left for them, please wire here: Elwaytheband@gmail.com
Thanks in advance.

We are stoked to welcome DOWN BY LAW to the Klownhouse family.

formed in 1989 by former All frontman Dave Smalley, Down By Law toured the world and recorded eight successful studio albums before their sudden break up nine years ago.

In 2008, Dave and lead guitarist Sam Williams, began to get the DBL itch again and decided to lay down a couple of new tracks and see where it might take them. Both members were inspired by the music and the positive fan feedback they recieved as the news about their recording sessions spread. So excited, in fact, that less than a year later, the band reformed and embarked on their first tour since 2003, where they played shows in South America and the United States. They followed that up with a visit to the Netherlands and several other one-off shows including an appearance at the 2011 Punk Rock Bowling Festival in Las Vegas.

In early 2012, Down By Law signed a new contract with DC-Jam Records and entered a Tampa, Florida recording studio in a quest to finish the album that Dave and Sam began work on in 2008. The completed 16 song record was then shipped to Ft. Collins, Colorado to the Blasting Room Studios where it was remixed by Smalley's old friend and bandmate, Bill Stevenson (Descendents, Black Flag), and then forwarded on to L.A. based D.O.B. Sound where it was mastered by Derek O'brien (Social Distortion, Adolescents).

We are working on some euro dates in late October/November.
The long awaited album, titled "Champions at Heart", is scheduled to street on August, 9th, 2012.


Some bad news for all SNFU Fans out there. The upcoming European Tour is postponed.Singer Chi Pig just went to DETOX and cant left Canada for a month long Tour in Europe...Good vibes to the Pig! We hope he is getting better soon. We hope to book a new tour early next year.



We are pretty stoked to anounce our newest Klownhouse family member:

BLUT & EISEN - new lineup!

German punk Legends BLUT & EISEN did their last tour back in 2008 in their original 1982 lineup. Due to Jobs, Family and other personal reasons, Drummer "Tier" (now the Singer) is the only original member who wants to keep things going. This is not a classic Reunion, this is a new BLUT & EISEN Edition, with following members:

Tier Wolf (Blut & Eisen | Cretins | Rikk Agnew Band) - Singer
Jenzzz G (Phospor | Der Moderne Man | Gigantor) - Guitar
Corwin Hambrick (Christian Death 1334 | Rikk Agnew Band | Mignon | Kettle Cadaver | The Children) - Bass

You want some news?
Well, here we go:
We have two awesome new Bands on our Roster. They are both from the UK and definitely kick ass! Ladies & Gentleman, please give a warm Welcome to the newest addition to the Klownhouse Family:
Their sound has been compared to Pinhead Gunpowder, The Replacements, Billy Bragg, The Clash, Alkaline Trio. If you are American, the music sounds English. If you are English, you have never heard of this band.

"The Magnificent trades in punk rock tunes of the highest order and does so seemingly with ease, creating a body of work that is fresh and relevant to the 21st century whilst not forgetting the past. You can ignore the comparisons to bands like The Clash and Leatherface (or anyone I might have mentioned), The Magnificent needs to be accepted for being themselves. A final thing that cannot be overlooked it that they also have one of the best guitar sounds I’ve heard in years--it’s a total joy to hear." (Punk News)

BANGERS (Cornwall, UK)

For many in the UK, Cornwall is known for being one of the most beautiful parts of the country and a holiday destination for the masses, as well as being the home of the tasty Cornish pasty. However, Cornwall is also being put on the map by a three-piece punk band going by the name of Bangers. This is a band which has, over the last few years, raised its profile through gigging in the UK, mainland Europe and even playing The Fest, honing their talents into a mighty bundle of melodic punk rock.
Check out their newest record "SMALL PLEASURES" here

Give a warm welcome to the latest addition to the Klownhouse Family: ALL EYES WEST from Chicago!

The Chicago scene has always been known for its gritty and honest punk rock defined by bands like Naked Raygun, Screeching Weasel, and 88 Fingers Louie. Newcomers ALL EYES WEST, no strangers themselves to the Chicago scene, are continuing in its great tradition with the release of their self-titled debut LP on Jump Start and Ass Card Records. All Eyes West came together in the summer of 2010 and is lead by vocalist/bassist Justin Miller’s emotionally charged lyrics which have been a signature to bands like Signsedso and indie rockers Hinter. Guitarist Jeff Dean is known for the sound that has defined bands like The Bomb(with Jeff Pezzati of Naked Raygun) , Noise By Numbers, and Explode And Make Up. In a relatively short amount of time the band has managed to build an impressive resume, touring both the US & UK and now its about time to tour Europe...
