20 punk-rock songs
The band from an industrial region of Barcelona presents their third album, which has a combination of strength and melody, both in sound and lyrics.
This way, they fill the void in the current Catalan combat-rock scene.
The quintet recorded this new album with the same studio and technician that produced Catalunya Punk's (Bullanga records). No ens aturaran was recorded during the summer of 2006 in Torelló, in the country house Doctor n'Rik Muzzic with Xavi Cholbi (Drummer of Inadaptats, Answer, Djvu…), who has also been in charge of the production.
This album confronts themes from mafias in the construction business, catholic religion and women abuse, to the hypocrisy behind musical piracy, or various aspects of daily life in general. Songs like "Habemus Papam", "Seif de Miusic", "Col·legues" or "La Cosa Nostra" demonstrate their contemporary social criticism through punk-rock rhythm.
Moreover, the album includes the track "Dia perfecte", an adaptation of Lou Reed's "Perfect Day", but brings to the song the unmistakable Redbanner style. It also contains a cover of the song "Quina vida" from Pixamandurries (cult Catalan punk band from the 90's) in which three of Pixamandurries members collaborate with Redbanner on the vocals.
The band, which will turn 10 years old next summer, started in a garage in Molis de Rei, were they would cover the bands of their musical roots (Kortatu, Decibelios, La Polla Record…) and they come back in 2007 after being on stage in almost all Catalunya, as well as in Valencia, Euskadi, and all Spanish state and even Northern Ireland and Germany. As a relatively young band, Redbanner has given more than 180 concerts. They have shared the stage with important bands of 80-90’s like R.I.P, Reincidentes, S.A, Inadaptats, Obrint Pas o KOP.
The formation, except for a bassist change in their beginning, remains intact, which has helped the band maintain their continuity and their essence.
