Loits - "Must Album" Release Info

Loits "Must album"

Nearly three years have passed since the release of "Vere kutse kohustab", but Loits have not left their guns rusting in the ditch. On Estonian Flag Day, June 4th, the long-awaited "Must album" ("Black album"), encompassing nine songs of unheard-of brilliance. The record is not unlike a picture album left behind by the grand-grandparents, documenting not only photographs, but also all the joy expereiced, as well as the tragedy of one small nation. "Must album" does not glorify the love for the fatherland or the soldier's valour, not the beauty of life or the pain of grief, although the latter one acts like the cord that twines the songs together. The new Loits album is a gift of remembrance to those departed, serving also as a reminderto all that injustice never dies.

Loits "Must album" limited edition

The limited edition of "Must album" is a true bag of surprises to all friends of Loits. In addition the actual album, the neat cardboard package contains a cool sticker as well as six commemoratory cards. The main thing, though, is the bonus EP "Mustad laulud" ("Black songs"), containing four tunes that are of somewhat different cast, yet entirely delicious nevertheless. And as if this was not enough, it also includes a photo album, a newsreel movie about the "Must album" record and a "Monologue" balancing the overall tonality of the album, all launchable on a PC. Together with Loits you are strong!


Today is the solemn date that we are proud to announce the pre-ordering of the both versions of "Must album". After trying on some boots of Spanish origin, the admired musicians were ready to agree to anything, meaning, this time, the signing of all pre-ordered records. After a few entertaining hours in the company of a searing iron and a torture wheel, the people of Loits began wondering about offering up even more surprises. The good old practice of lashing gave root to the idea to raffle off among the pre-orderers of the limited edition the silver medallion depicted on the album cover. One of the pre-orderers of the regular version will also receive the guitar strings used during the recording of "Must album".

The last day to pay for the pre-order is May 31, 2007; we'll start sending out the records on June 4th at the latest. If you are unable to reimburse us in the seven days following the receipt of our purchase verification, please contact us in person; otherwise your order will be deemed null and void.

Loits - Vere Kutse DVD

"Vere Kutse" -- The Story of the Origins of Flak'n'Roll Now on DVD

The respective movie was put together for the "Vere Kutse Kohustab" album presentation party. After a brief "tour" of Estonia the band decided to release the movie titled "Vere Kutse" on a DVD-R, since the number of people who wanted it for their private collections was growing rapidly.

The movie features several interviews with the band and the people close to the band as well as rare footage of concerts and of the European tour. Now that the movie is over a year old, it can very well be called a brief but concise overview of the story of the origins of both Loits as well as Flak'n'Roll. In a nutshell -- 45 minutes of tears, joy and rock'n'roll!!!

At this time, unfortunately, the movie is only available in Estonian, but the band is diligently working on the translation, and hopefully by this summer also a subtitled English version will be ready.

The professionally dubbed DVD-R comes in a DVD-case with a colour-printed sleeve containing a foreword.

Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori
BEAUTY IS IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDER... the very same way that everyone has their personal criteria of truth and secret codes for evaluation of different phenomena. Thus it is not a great surprise that Loits have received both warm welcomes as well as been attacked with extreme propaganda. The only things Loits show barefaced hostility towards are injustice, cynicism, hypocrisy, ignorance and betrayal. We are far from justifying or propagating any acts of hostility; also it is our ideological principle not to spread negative feelings. Loits speak about the past, the present and the future without gilding any lilies or concealing anything. When singing about war we envision it through the eyes of the soldier on the front; when speaking of home, a citizen concerned with the fate of their homeland is speaking within us. Loits do not attack or monger hatred; Loits call for respect towards one's own country, people, history, language and culture. In the light of all this we don't feel like we should ask for anyone's forgiveness, nor do we feel that we owe any explanations to anyone. Being an Estonian and proud of it is not a crime. Loits regret nothing.
