SOME NEWS FROM CAMP CONTORSION 20.05.2016
It was quiet the last months on our website - but no news does not necessarily mean bad news ...
We played two great shows in Olten and Winterthur and of course songwriting nonstop. We are happy to announce that we booked the studio for December 2016.

Updates / new gigs for 2018 28.11..2017
It's been a while since our last proper update. This doesn't mean we were lazy ...
First there has been a trademark conflict with our newest record. We had to change the title from "United Zombie Nations" into "U.Z.N.", as there is a trademark registered in USA and EU region for the term "Zombie Nation" from another artist. It took some time to sort this out, but we are happy that we found a solution which works for both parties.
Besides the last shows in Aarburg and Reinach we are currently working on new songs. There are ideas for three songs almost worked out. During winter time we will surely invest more time this path down.
Shortly we can announce our first short tour in 2018 which will lead us through Czech Republic, Slowakia, Poland and Germany. More details coming soon ...
Updates cancelled tour / songwriting 14.06.2018
It was quiet silent here for quite some time - but you don't have to be afraid: we're still here ...
We had some issues going on with a planned tour at the end of May 2018. It was planned to do a 6-date run in Czech Republic, Austria, Germany and Slowakia. Unfortunately, the booking agency didn't take it as seriously as they should, which didn't left us another choice than cancel everything.
This was a big disappointment for us, as we put in a lot of efforts to make our first tour happen. But if you don't get any contract in months, nor informations about all tour stops and venues, and no promotion is done less than four weeks before the first show, it's quite obvious that this will get a desaster. And waiting to get back your pre-payment for more than 3 months for a support slot for a bigger tour which was canceled from the same agency made this decision necessary. We can only say: if you are reached by a Czech booking agency "Enemy Booking" for touring, just let it be and move on. Too many drama and lies ... But hopefully we can make it to these country sometime in the future with a proper tour.
Actually we're writing songs for another thrash metal massacre. At this moment, we have finished three songs completely. These songs are covering all the area we've explored musically so far - and also some new ones. We are really excited about the new stuff!!
So keep up thrashin' ... we'll see ya soon somewhere ...
EP update & release party 25.09.2019
We've finished recording our forthcoming EP "Thrash Metal Ddomination" in the SOS Basement Studio. The EP will contain six songs and will be released in November 2019. In this moment the mixing and mastering takes place and we're looking forward to present you some new stuff soon.
Don't miss our release show with our buddies from Mortal Factor on 23rd November 2019 in the Metbar Lenzburg!!

New live shows will be added soon. We have also booked some studio time for November 2022. We will delivery regularly updates about the process soon. So stay thrashy and healthy, friends!!
