Van Dammes, the Finnish garage punk quartet from Helsinki, just released their fifth EP called Finally There with a music video for their eponymous single. The record is a tribute to the Finland national football team which will finally play in their first ever major championship as they attend the EURO2020 in June.
This is something that the whole Finnish nation has been waiting for decades, and a great inspiration for kick-ass garage punk songs. Originally, the band was also scheduled to play in the tournament opening in Copenhagen. Unfortunately, the pandemic messed up the plans.
The record is released by German label Rockstar Records and available digitally worldwide but also on cassette. The band plans to tour Europe again in summer 2022.
