New release for Ashpipe that after a year from “Born Bad”, their second album, are back with this EP with 6 brand new songs which represent the current mood of the band.
Based on the need to keep on creating, communicating and expressing without restrictions the title’s choice itself is not casual at all:
with “Too much focused about the current political and economical situation so let’s talk about ironic and thoughtful matter” Ashpipe created a link between these songs as they were a single batch, which has to be listened from the beginning to the end without breaks.
We start from “Brucia”, a punk rock song with mandolin, then we have “Poser”, that ironically describes people’s virtual behaviours on Facebook, followed by “2 hearts 3 pots 1 song”, in other words the basic ingredients of Ashpipe’s fun, “Stay Free Stay Pipes”, new anthem of the band, the powerful and aggressive “Black Crow”, and, finally, a reggae/rock version of “Brucia”, called “ri(Brucia”.
An owed step for Ashpipe, whose line-up, now based on 7 elements, explore new musical coordinates using mandolin, accordion, new rhythmic patterns and a second guitarist that fits band’s sound in a natural and spontaneous way.
Always on the road between Italy and Germany, Ashpipe in the last year released two videos, “Cuore e Polmoni” and “Hooligans attitude”, and they are working to the third one, “Rum&Drum”.
You will see Ashpipe live in Italy and soon in Germany, where they will keep promoting “Born Bad” and ““Too much focused about the current political and economical situation so let’s talk about ironic and thoughtful matter” keeping on spreading their antifascist, libertarian and egalitarian roots.
No excuses, no compromises. Only Stay Free, Stay PiPes.
