Between December 20 and January 20 Dutch punkrockers Ink Bomb will be selling their own acoustic version of the classic “Nothing with you” by the Descendents. Price: 1 euro. The band will donate all of the proceeds to the Kledingbank Nijmegen, a local initiative which helps people below the poverty line with free clothing bundles.
The choice to donate to the Kledingbank was easily made. Vocalist Joost Hoedemaeckers works there as a volunteer coordinator on a weekly basis. He knows the organization can always use outside support. “Clients of the Kledingbank come in from all kinds of organizations like Stichting Gast, Refugee Work, the local food banks and the Salvation Army. They all receive a clothing bundle of which undergarments and socks are new. This of course requires funding.” https://www.facebook.com/KledingbankNijmegen/
Just as with previous INK BOMB releases this Descendents cover was recorded and mixed in the studio of guitarist Quirijn Foeken. Because of this there were no production costs for this Christmas release and the total proceeds will benefit the clients of the Kledingbank Nijmegen.
Buying the cover…
The acoustic version of Nothing With you is free to stream for everyone on Bancamp: https://inkbomb.bandcamp.com/track/nothing-with-you-acoustic. Whoever wants to buy the song in MP3 form and donate to the Kledingbank Nijmegen, can do this in one of two ways:
You can transfer 1 euro to bank account number NL26 RABO 0120 3305 12 in the name of J.A.P. Hoedemaeckers. Be sure to mention ‘donation 2016’ and your e-mail address in the comments section of your bank transfer. The band will send you the mp3 by e-mail. This way we can donate the total amount to the Kledingbank.
The second way to purchase the song is by ordering it via the bands Bandcamp page either with PayPal or a credit card. Because of administration costs Bandcamp charges, only 70 cents of every purchase can be donated to the Kledingbank.
Ink Bomb is a melodic punkrockband from Nijmegen, NL who have been making music since the beginning of 2015 in the style of bands like Bad Religion and No Fun At All. The members have gained experience in previous bands like Superhero, Planet Eyelash and Anders Niemand and were looking for like minded people to play raw, melodic punkrock with. The result: an explosion of feisty punkrock with cutting guitar solos, driving bass lines, drums on speed and spirited vocals from a frontman suffering from ungovernable Weltschmerz. Tentative highlight: the presentation of debut EP Invincible Summer on the 24th of September 2016 in a heated and crowded De Onderbroek in Nijmegen. The EP, as well as the eye catching sunvisor, were quickly sold out that evening.
