You stood me a smoke yesterday… Farewell to Hateful Abandon

To be involved was an honour. Given meaning by toil!

HATEFUL ABANDON have departed Todestrieb and will continue their mission elsewhere — more frequently and more publicly. Endtime congregations will be gathering soon! Touring worldwide. Gather supplies, await your destination.

HA have been and will always be intrinsic to Todestrieb – a foundational part of the label. This will never be forgotten and I’ll continue posting occasional news, but for future release and tour news follow their facebook page.

Thanks to everyone who supported our HA releases – ordering the albums and demos, trading with us, spreading the word, reviewing, carrying interviews!!! I know the band had a big impact for many people; if you discovered them through TTR then we did something right!

Putting together the L/B design was a perfect conclusion. Regards to V/M&SWINE–stay sharp out there!

Symbols of the Union, Jack: New T-Shirts Available from Hateful Abandon

This image was designed for the LIARS/BASTARDS CD – to fit under the CD tray.

It’s a collage of riot police (Bristol or London riots from a few years ago) and the infamous Bullingdon club. You can see Cameron’s face and Johnson’s foot in there. Essentially it’s a student society with membership limited exclusively to cunts who get a kick out of behaving like cunts.

A Bullingdon member can pay off any damage and expect protection until the inevitable leap to power. Otherwise, be prepared for gas and truncheons… on the orders of ex-members.

The overall symbol is a union jack, circular to fit under the CD — the obvious CRASS similarities were completely unintentional, but some of the best things are.

Cvlt Nation Review Hateful Abandon – LIARS/BASTARDS

Read the complete review here.

It’s track 2, “Culprit,” that may be my favorite on the LP. Again there’s a militaristic feel coupled with atmospheric, gloomy keyboards, and swirling, slashing postpunk guitar sounds that I think characterizes a lot of HA’s best stuff. One thing that cannot be over-emphasized is the incredible job that Swine’s Tom has done on the drumming. Live drumming mixed with programmed drum machines (or at least that’s how it sounds to me) is combined with the percussive effects of old-school industrial sounds: Things like chains clinking, oil drums being pounded, metal scraping against metal, etc. The element of experimentation that drove bands like Savage Republic and Einsterzende Neubauten to make music is on display on much of HA’s work.

Hateful Abandon – LIARS/BASTARDS Out Now

The third HA album, officially released March 31.

The culmination of a 10 year partnership, we are proud

pipe, wires and soil.


We also designed some new shirts and patches,
