Sweet Empire - "Unsolving Problems (In The Animal Kingdom)" Shield Recordings, Gunner Records, Cats? Aye! Records, LaserLife Records - A BlankTV World Premiere!

Artist city, country: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Artist Biography: Four friends, sharing a love for independent music, came together somewhere in a small town in Holland in the summer of 2008 to establish their own musical kingdom: Sweet Empire.
They started to create songs that are melodic and playful, yet with a dead serious undertone. Bringing to mind bands like Descendents and Dag Nasty, among others.
The band has a strong opinion on animal rights, each other’s record collections, the environment, politics, and the great hoax: organized religion.

About The Video: The band recorded this video on a Sunday afternoon. The dog is called Jet and wasn't hurt at all during the making of the video, she got a lot of treats and was very happy.
This video is to promote the new album 'Old Ideas Keep Fighting Us' which will be released on September 1st via various European labels: Shield Recordings (BeNeLux), Gunner Records (Germany), Cats? Aye! Records (UK), and LaserLife Records (AT).
The lyrics are about our societies having suffered crisis upon crisis. Sometimes we can’t help them from happening, but most of the time they’re just a result of human ignorance and sloth. Humans are rational beings and we are able to change our lives and behaviour. Whatever brought us down can be changed and/or brought to justice. Somehow we passively keep on following the same paved paths of the class/caste system we so eagerly want to oppose. Always remember that we are rational beings and that we are capable of doing a lot more than we’re doing now.

Song Lyrics: Another hectic year has passed
We’re rebuilding residues
Recovering from the darkness
That turned our states into ashes

Picking up our good old lives
Keep ignoring the castes that brought us disaster-
Following the lines of our outdated classes
And I wonder
Are we but animals?
Are we just animals?
Animals?

Waving red flags on our shores
Our brains don’t need any more
Lies to starve our empathy
Or grow more indifference

Hey!

Another hectic year has passed
Rebuilding more crises’ ruins
No recovery from endorsements
That took our health and our sources

Picking up our good old lives
Keep ignoring the castes that brought us disaster-
Following the lines of our outdated classes
And I wonder
Are we but animals?
Are we just animals?
Animals?

We own more rhetorics
To answer these immoral choices
Can we throw this wheel around
And learn how to share again?
And
Learn
How
To
Share
Again?
