It's been a while...

Hello everyone! We know it's been a long time since our last blog update but we've been really really busy and that's good because we've got lots of things to write about!

First of all we are playing a show in Athens @ Intrepid Fox on the 25th of December -yes, Christmas!- with Bombing the Avenue and Chris Kritikos (Bad Bid). Check out our promo video,an amazing work by G.N.P. Productions!

You can also check out our interview on RockInAthens.gr It's in greek but google translate will probably help you!

We are very proud to have our song "Late Night Resolutions" featured in the "International Punk Rock Superstars vol.6" compilation, released by Pinhead Records. It includes many great bands, you should check it out!

What you should also check out, is our album review on pointless critics! Seriously, check it out now!

Finally we're writing new music, we're planning a european tour for the summer of 2013 and we're also preparing an awesome video. So stay tuned!
See you on the 25th,
Wish Upon A Star

Save Your Breath - Tour Video

Well..it's quite difficult to picture three weeks of touring in a three minute video. Touring is fun! Sometimes it's hard but definately every single moment has a great value to us individually. We met beautiful people and saw many awesome places throughout our journey. This video is dedicated to everyone who helped us, offered us a place to sleep, fed us, booked a show for us, bought a shirt, asked for a sticker, attended a show with crappy sound or came to say hi! The world seems so small after all and we will continue searching for these fine little moments of freedom..

Till next time, peace, love and dedication.

Something to Hold Onto Spring Tour Day 18

 Greetings from Slovenia!
We just arrived at Koper and getting ready for the very last show of this tour.

Our day off at lovely Neustadt couldn't be better. We had a BBQ at Stephie's famous yard with Despite Everything and many locals who made us feel more than welcome. Spent our day chilling in the sun but Manouras couldnt ease his hunger for football proving he is a real goalkeeping monster! (Ask Billy and Zahos from Despite about that). The next day, after a small drive to Graz and two (!) stops from the local  police, we arrived to Sub Club. Really warm place, great backstage meal by Thom from Ants! and another show with Despite Everything, Tag Tear Rebuild and our favourite British guy Jack Holmes. There were more people than expected,we had a very good time during the show and are really sad to leave our beloved Austria. We will be back for sure!

On this tour everybody kept telling us how difficult it would be to cross the Croatian borders. Well it only took us 2 minutes,how cool guys are we? Next stop was Zagreb and Route 66 club. Awesome place with a big yard and packed from the hour we arrived. Zoran our Croatian host was incredible. We were treated like kings and the hotel room was a real shock for us. Despite a mini electricity black out in the middle of the show everything went well.
 Quick coffee at out hotel room,packing up and Slovenia here we are!! We have weird feelings seeing this tour coming to an end and we will dedicate an update for our tour summary for sure. But until then, we have another show tonight!

Something to Hold Onto Spring Tour Day 15

Good evening people!
 Lots of news since our last update. The Wiener Neustadt show was very cool and afterwards we had party time at a local pub with some beers and shots. Slept at lovely Stephie's place an awesome house with a fantastic yard and a small lake. We really didnt want to leave.

Next day a quick drive to Budapest. Straight to the venue to have another gig with The Plan Beer Caves and Spraynyard. You should really check The Cave's album its one of out favourite driving soundtracks! After the show we went to a bar in the centre of the city. Suddenly and while we had a smoke outside of the bar,a neighbour started throwing water to Orfeas from her balkony and in 2 minutes a police car arrived asking what we were doing in the city but our Budapest host Magda helped us avoid any problems.Woke up,had a tour in the city,ate local food and chilled at a huge park with Eri's local friends.

In the afternoon we were supposed to have a small show at a practise room. Probably its one of the best DIY shows we' ever had. Old factory,tiny room but an awesome atmosphere! Manouras had his first crowdsurfing while playing his bass, Orfeas played with a borrowed guitar after a broken string and Panos has a twisted ankle. Good times!

Left Budapest with great memories. Back to Austria and Vienna. Really happy having a show with our good friends Despite Everything and also Planet of Zeus were in the city and met us. You should definately visit Vienna on 1st of May, there are street parties in almost every corner, music everywhere, cheap beer and happy faces. What else do you need? Our show was at an ex pizza place (!) and we had a blast. Slept at Neustadt and Stephie's place again.
Today its a day off for us and Despite Everything so we are gonna spend our day playing football, table tennis, resting at the sun and have a bbq at our favourite Neustadt yard. 

See you soon!

Something to Hold Onto Spring Tour Day 10

 Greetings from sunny Wiener Neustadt.
The three german shows with Authority Zero and What Else?! were amazing. AZ rule and we are

really waiting to meet them back in Athens! If u plan to tour Germany u should really try

booking Martin aka The Partyboy (you will find out why).
After ten hours of night driving yesterday we arrived safely at Prague. It was like summer

there and the city was awesome! We had a show at Chapeau Rouge a three stage club just in

the heart of Old City of Prague with 1st Choice. It was a really weird show, not so crowded

but with lots of stage invasions and people dancing to our tunes.
 Woke up and travelled to Wiener Neustadt. The venue is great,we will enjoy an open air punk

rock documentary,a bbq and the main party is our show with Soey, The Caves from Uk and

Spraynard  a band that George likes very much and you should check out their latest album.
Hope it will be a blast!!

Something to Hold Onto Spring Tour Day 8


 Our Serbian part of the tour is over.We couldn't imagine a better start than a fully packed show in Kraljevo with Regulator. The crowd was amazing, stage diving and dancing went on all night long (we had our first 3 encores in a row (!) ). Voijkan and Nicolas' hospitality was amazing and we really enjoyed their meals and their tour through the town and Kraljevo's river.


  Next stop was Zrenjanin where Milos from All Except One and the rest of the Victims of Society crew made us feel like home. We had a couple of beers (ok we had a lot) before the show and really loved Milos' Serbian rakje. Orfeas stole the show during the after party performing his famous dance moves. Milos' drinks are still keeping us alive during our tour :)

Novi Sad
Our last show of the mini Serbian tour was at the wonderful city of Novi Sad. Bojan and Wolf from the Rebuild Collective are the best guys ever! After a tour at the city's old fortress and a great vegetarian meal by Njanja we wad a really good show with Fast As We Go Far and Lilla Horea and then a great time at the Black Sheep! (local underground bar) with a huge collection of vinyls.
 In the morning  Asteris and Panos had a nice meeting with the local authorities and after 11 hours of driving we arrived in Germany.

Last night we had our first gig in Germany (Koblenz). It was a great experience sharing the stage with Authority Zero, What Else!? and Society Off.We offered them some Ouzo and they really enjoyed it! In a few hours we'll be in Frankfurt for our next show.

Something to Hold Onto Spring Tour Day 3

Hello everyone!

After a long trip from Thessaloniki yesterday, we're now in Kraljevo, Serbia and are staying at the office of Positive Youth where the people are great and very hospitable! Tonight we're playing our first show outside of Greece, at the Rock Club bounty with "Regulator".
We had a great time in Thessaloniki on Wednesday's show with Absent at Apyra Moria  and want to thank everyone who showed up. It was a great way to start our tour!

Until next time,
