Tattooed Smiles

Release: 26 October 2018

 

Tattooed Smiles is the album that Jan Paternoster & Dries Van Dijck could only have written at this point and place. A powerful and emotional record, embracing the raw beauty of their cradle Brussels, and brutal esthetics of a lost generation looking for ways to survive in their homestead. This cultural richness shows itself in the collaborations with the infamous Belgian Hip Hop artist Roméo Elvis, but Black Box Revelation hasn’t lost touch with their original sound. The old school American blues rock atmosphere still lingers around on the title track of the album and through the haunting vocals of Seasick Steve himself on “Built to Last”.

Lowlands FESTIVAL 2019

“Dutch rock band De Staat start their set by giving their take on 'Firestarter' by The Prodigy as the crowd flood into the main stage to see them. De Staat does this because Prodigy was going to take this headline slot before the tragic death of Keith Flint. 

“De Staat create a spectacle at Lowlands day one”

“The crowd spiralling around in the thousands, it is incredible; a spectacle. Ultimately, De Staat earns the headline slot, and hats off to them for rising to the occasion and collaborating with Lowlands to create something that will go down in Dutch music history.”

(GIGWISE)

“DE STAAT rises above their own reputation in Alpha tent…historical…”

VOLKSKRANT - Menno Pot

“A worthy replacement for The Prodigy. And the firestarter of Lowlands”

TROUW

“Best show of the day”
