One year after the first demo, Hold A Grudge went back to the studio to record 7 new songs. Despite having to overcome a couple of problems (kids, money, lineup changes) they released the new, self-titled album, on June 2006 on Troika Records.
This new CD offers 7 new tracks as well as the 3 original songs from the demo.
- Brothers In Arms
Because in the good times as well as the tougher times, we can always count on each other.
- Build Something Great
It's ok complaining about the stuff that pisses you off but at the end of the day it's still just talk. Actions are what make the world go 'round. So let's build something great.
"Selling Out: the compromising of one's integrity in exchange for money or other personal gain." - wikipedia.org. Considering the power the press wields, this is scary when it happens to journalists.
Everytime I think T.V. has finally hit the bottom, it manages to get to a new low (how dumb can the next reality show be?) I feel sorry for those addicted to those fucking stupidities.
- Reclaim The Streets
If everyone would just stick together, we could put an end to racism and intimidation. The city is ours, the city is yours, make sure it's never theirs.
- Dogs Bark
Sometimes it seems the coppers are as bored as we are... How many times have they crossed the line between duty and harassment? Just run.
- Memories Last
As long as we remember, as long as memories last, a friend never truly dies but lives on in our hearts.
- Get Out
If I wanted to go to a fashion show, I'd go to a fucking fashion show. You shallow freaks just get the fuck out.
- Not For Sale
Fuck those motherfuckers trying to cash in with punkrock and hardcore. This ain't about bands making a buck with their music, but companies trying to take what's ours and sell it to assholes who don't deserve it. We are not for sale.
- Never Come Back
Funny how those who are the loudest, those who claim to be the most "into it", always leave first.
