(2003 – 2010)

Bio: New Reality is a punkrockband from Groningen that consists of three members. The members have quite a lot of band experience, having played in bands like Teenage Warning and Legal Axion. The band plays modern punkrock with the “old school” feeling, and can be described as rough, tight and aggressive but also as melodic and exciting (think of bands like Chaos UK, Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat and Poison Idea). All three members sing, so every song has it’s own voice. This way there is a lot of variety among the songs. Bert runs “Teenangel Radical Recordings”. They split up after their guitarplayer leaves.

Lyrics: The songs are about personal experiences but sometimes they have a political side
