Guitarist Maxxx states, “Recording a music video from 10PM to 7AM in the morning ain’t that easy! But we are happy to show you how fun it was with this behind the scene music video! A producer, four crazy French guys, one rough punk rock song: We are THE AMSTERDAM RED LIGHT DISTRICT.”
The band’s new album, Gone For A While, was released on November 26th via Red-Light Records. You can order Gone For A While digital album here, the physical album here, and the ‘Gone For A While’ single here via iTunes.

TARLD’s sound has been nurtured from the roots of bands that the band have listed to since their youth – such as Refused, The Bronx, Letlive and The Ghost Of A Thousand. They pride themselves on their live show particularly, having been part of tours throughout Europe with bands such as Comeback Kid, Slayer, Anti-Flag and Refused.
TARLD have found a home in between punk and hardcore, where vocalist Elio’s gritty screams coupled with blood curdling riffs pummel perfectly into the soaring melodies and catchy choruses - carrying this band into a spectrum of audiences.
