Review SUBS tribute
Last year, we were privileged to record a song for the tribute album marking the 10-year aniversary of legendary Chinese punk band, SUBS. The album is called Nice To Meet You, Too! and is available from Indie Music Store.
Here is what the reviewer from Live Beijing Music had to say about it:
"Alright, so the SUBS have been crazy busy – after the release of their latest yoU aRe yoU, the band has recruited the one and only Josh Feola (of pangbianr, SmartBeijing, Charm – dude gets around) to hit the skins and looks like he’s having a blast. To prove the wealth of respect SUBS has garnered over the years, the band has released a tribute album entitled Nice To Meet You, Too! which compiles thirteen international bands interpretations of the bands most famous songs. Gnarly. As with all covers, they’re hit or miss with my favorite being Robert Post’s take on Postlube, Mirramaze’s violin-riddled take on ‘Ship’s Log’, and the Greenland Whalefishers’ goofy fun reimagining of ‘We Won’t Have To Wait Someday’. But about, I’m more in awe of the collective Western SUBS love. Respect, indeed. Grab it over at Indie Music Store. Oh, SUBS play Strawberry May 2nd, and MIDI May 3rd."

Bliuzo Naktys - Lithuania 2013
Thank you so much to everyone at Bliuzo Naktys festival in Lithuania! We had an amazing time, and we're looking forward to seeing a lot of you again when we come back in September. Here are a couple of pictures from the show:
Mirramaze is honoured to be a part of the 10-year anniversary tribute album to legendary Chinese punk band SUBS. The album will be released in China in July.
Our third album, Prozac Nation, is finally finished, and now we're getting ready for the release party. We've been lucky enough to be joined by two other amazing bands for this event, Dømt, who're releasing their debut album on the same night, and Alex Winther who is releasing his very first EP. And Sindri has been kind enough to agree to play a set of his own stuff, as well as providing the bass-in-the-face-factor for the Maze.
John Dee 2012:
Thanks to everyone who came down to our show in John Dee - and to the afterparty in DeVilles. Here are a few pictures from the night:
Rock Nights Festival 2011:
Thanks to the arrangers, the stage manager, the fans and everyone else who made this festival so special. We had a great time, so hope to see you there again next year!
Thanks to all our fans, old and new, that came to our concerts in Lithuania in June. We can't wait to see you all again in August in the Rock Nights Festival!
We'd also like to thank Sindri for doing an amazing job supporting us at all the concerts. He unfortunately didn't bring enough albums with him, but if you want to buy one you can contact him through facebook or myspace.
Fair Trade Festival:
We would like to say a big thank you to all the arrangers and all the people who took part in the Fair Trade Festival this year - the first of its kind in Norway. It was magical to watch from the stage as people were dancing to our music in the rain - and some even got naked for Fair Trade. More pictures to come in the gallery section.
We had a great time playing at this year's march in the Cuba Park. Chilled vibes, good times! More pictures to come in the gallery section!
We kicked off the tour by playing a small venue called Arcanoa somewhere in East- Berlin. This is a venue that amongst other things sports an electric chair on the stage (!) and a river running down the middle of the bar. The German band Kite A Like did support for us, whilst the bar manager did his best to support us in every other way. We were very sorry that we missed out on the weekly medieval jam session they do- next time we'll be there!
We were mightily impressed by the spirit of Berlin punk. This is the real deal, not the watered down version we've become used to. It also manifests itself in the strangest ways. Anything from openly smoking what was definetly NOT Malboro inside the clubs, to openly enjoying a drinking session on the S-Bahn in the middle of the afternoon. In the club called White Trash Fast Food (note the name...) the smoking ban was openly ignored after around one in the morning (when the staff was too pissed to bother with it). In the kebab shop that we stumbled into somewhere in East Berlin, we had to do an impromptu gig, that resulted in us running away from offers of drinks, more drinks and dodgy after parties. However - even in Berlin certain venues have had to give in to council oppression - we turned up for sound check to find the PA system gone as the club had recieved noise complaints from the neighbours. The gig (and the night) was however saved by us being able to make a hell of a lot of noise even without a PA. This is also where we met German Bob Dylan who told stories of when the wall came up in Berlin, and how he'd fled to Sweden where he'd learned a new word: "hej"!
We're looking forward to revisiting Germany as a part of the bigger European tour in October, and we hope we'll see you all again then!
The 2010 tour:
We made it back from Eastern Europe alive (kinda) and we'd like to thank everyone who came to our shows and everyone who bought our albums. And of course a huge thanks to Sindri for stepping in as the lead guitarist with just a couple of weeks (and just three rehearsals) notice. We had a great time - and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2011! The gallery section will be updated with lots of pictures from the tour pretty soon, and the band members will be telling their stories in an audio interview - but here are a few pics just for now:
Thanks to everyone who came down to our release party at John Dee. Here are a couple of pictures from the night:
Release Party John Dee
The release party for the second album is coming up on October 2. in John Dee. Doors open at 21:00. Support by Sindri, Haptic and Gotham Saints. For tickets, please go to

Mirramaze on facebook
Yep, we finally did it... We are now on facebook, and we hope you'll join us there:
Music video ready
Here is the music video for Newsflash from our first album. Hope you enjoy it!
Recording a new album
Mirramaze is pleased to announce the recording of their second album. The album will be recorded in Sono Studio in Prague. The studio has previously hosted such noted artists as David Bowie, Limp Bizkit and Living Colour, as well as Norway's own Midnight Choir. To see where the band will be spending the next month, check out their web site:
Rock the Streets
Mirramaze was happy to play at the Rock the Streets 2009, a free festival that focuses on the quality of life of the homeless and the substance abusers of Oslo.
|Some of the other artists who helped out in this event where all the proceeds went to the Blue Cross Contact Center were Maria Haukaas Storeng and El Caco. We would like to thank them for their commitment. We would also like to thank all the volunteers who worked tirelessly in the rain to pull this festival off.|
Some pictures from Rock the Streets 2009:
The band kept busy in the winter of 2009, making a video for the first single of the debut album as well as everything else.
The video is being mixed right now, but as a consolation price you can watch the old live video whilst you wait.
There are also some pictures in the gallery section from the shoot
