In cooperation with Seayou Records we released a split 7″ with Die Eternias and Dust Covered Carpet as well as a limited edition of Die Eternias skateboards and T-shirts. We also shot a video for the song „King Young Star“. The second song by Die Eternias on the record is called "Paul is a Bastard". We also toured through Germany, Austria and Bulgaria.
Die Eternias were a four piece band from Vienna. They claimed to originate from He-Man’s home planet Eternia developed in the childhood daydreams of singer and guitarist Voodoo Jürgens. In 2004 the four Eternias founded the band. After they won a band contest at Viennese club Flex, they released their first album on the club’s own label Flexschallplatten (released digitally on Seayou Records). Another 7“ EP on Seayou followed. In fall 2012 Die Eternias released their first and last LP „Sould Out“.
Die Eternias setup was conventional: guitar, bass, drums, an organ at live shows. The music was not. Influences range from reggae to Kurt Weill, the songs are about the repressed facets of Western society, the peripheral and marginalised individuals, the petty criminals, the prostitutes.

You know when you should ride the Die Eternias skateboard? When you are in a city of clowns, outlaws, laughter, misfits, confetti, underdogs, boxers with funfair masks, chunky police guys and lollipops.
Enjoy being weird!
