Track: Coilguns – We Missed The Parade


The noise punkers Coilguns come from La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland. Following the release of their single ‘Venetian Blinds’ back in March, the band have come up with a classic hardcore punk anthem with the track ‘We Missed The Parade’. Written, arranged and produced by Coilguns, the track was recorded by Scott Evans at Ocean Sounds, Giske (Norway), mixed by Tom Dalgety and mastered by Robin Schmidt.

The band comments:

“When we recorded that song, we thought it would be more of a B-side. With its somehow classic punk-hardcore feeling, it felt like it might belong to an old Coilguns era. Through the process of mixing, the track grew on everyone and felt more and more like an anthem, specifically one of our very own lives. Substantially, the track talks about the fact that we’re getting older, still doing the same thing, not being sure why we still do it, but nonetheless, we’ll keep on doing it, and we’ll keep doing it our own way, on our own. 

Jonathan Nido (Guitarist and founder of Coilguns) comments about the video:

“This was shot during our UK tour last April and perfectly captures the energy of that song. One of our crew members, Zach, who normally serves as a stage technician, found himself without space onstage due to the intimate size of the venues. As a result, he took charge of the camera, filming this song each night and editing it into the clip you see here. I love the fact that this happened spontaneously and that we now find ourselves with a homemade video for this track.” 

Carefully controlled chaos, but chaos nonetheless. This is such a massive tune from the scrappy, detuned melodic guitars, riotous drums and passionate vocals, it’s infectious. Despite the unhinged noise fest the band let loose, the track is brilliantly written and exceptionally performed, sending you looking for more.
