After releasing their debut album, Brat Pack switched guitar player Willem – who was busy with Antillectual – for Jeroen. In this new line-up they have since played all over Europe, including two tours of Western Europe, a tour of the Balkan states, a UK tour and many weekend trips to Germany, Belgium, France, Czech Republic and Denmark.
Now, three years after releasing “Hate The Neighbours”, Brat Pack is ready to unleash their second full-length: “Stupidity Returns”. This album was recorded with producer Nico van Montfort, near the town of Venlo. This town is home to the most notorious right-wing politician of The Netherlands, Geert Wilders. The bend to the conservative extreme-right of the majority of the Dutch population has been a large influence on the album. The title is in part a comparison of the current political climate to that of the late thirties. Musically, the album is again a combination of the aggressive sounds of bands like RKL and Poison Idea with more melodic influences like The Adolescents and Agent Orange, yet generally sounds more “mature”. Not conform the connotations this word usually implies, this does not mean less aggressive, energetic and urgent. Quite the contrary…
