The Old-timers Release Highly Anticipated Album “SOLI DEO GLORIA”

Today South Africa based punk band the Old-timers announce the release of their full length album “SOLI DEO GLORIA”.   The Old-timers urgent and emotion-filled music peels back layers of societal grime and dust to reveal the redemptive nature of God’s mercy, grace and love.  Lyrically steadfast and hopeful, their music reflects the daily human struggle against flesh and against self.  The Old-timers share their faith and hope through unapologetic answers and heartfelt pleas.  Musical influences include GBH, The Subhumans, Headnoise, Minor Threat and Hit The Deck.

The Old-timers’ unusual recording process leverages modern technology.  Dave (vocals) and Don (guitar and bass) live twelve hours apart in South Africa, and their drummer Matt Lagusis (formerly of False Idle) records at the Simpul Studios in Boise, Idaho, in the United States.  Dave & Don separately recorded the vocals and music, then forwarded the music over for Matt to add the drum track.  The album was mixed by Sef Idle at Simpul Studios, and digitally mastered by Lanthanum at Lanthanum Audio.

The purpose of The Old-timers is to glorify God in every song, to reach a desperate world with the Good News of God’s grace and love, and to have a ton of fun while doing it.  Released jointly by Caustic Fallout, Thumper Punk Records and Veritas Vinyl, CDs are available for pre-order through the Thumper Punk Records and Veritas Vinyl webstores, and digital versions are available through iTunes, AmazonMP3 and most other digital retailers.  All proceeds from the sale of SOLI DEO GLORIA will be donated to support the Missionary work of Dave and his family with Siloam Christian Ministries (http://www.siloam.org.uk/089.htm), which aims to share the gospel of Jesus Christ whilst providing medical aid, education and social help.  You can also donate personally to help support Dave’s efforts (please e-mail info@siloam.org.uk to confirm that your gift is for Project 089).

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
