After the successful release of their EPs ‘Invincible Summer’ (2016) and ‘Swim’ (2017), Dutch punk rock band Ink Bomb is ready for the next step. This next step is called 'Fiction.' It’s their most ambitious, fastest, aggressive, catchy and fearless release yet.
"On 'Fiction,' we have further developed our own sound. I can’t wait for the whole world to hear it!" singer Joost Hoedemaeckers says. The title 'Fiction' can be explained in multiple ways but mainly refers to the post-truth society of today. Science and journalism are coming under increasing pressure, while facts no longer seem crucial.
In addition, books, reading and fiction are indispensable for Ink Bomb members. Conversations on the road or backstage often are about a novel or other book that has been read by one of the musicians. Thus, fiction influences the lyrics of the band directly and indirectly. It still takes a while before it is August 23rd. Luckily, the first single 'Griefwalker' will be released next week, on Friday 31 May.
