about

Ruiz, our premium indie-rockers are back with another fine release on Geenger Records, only a month after their latest EP "Draw The Line Never A Square". If, by chance, you missed their previous release, here is an insight into their biography and things they've done so far:

Starting in 2005 as a powerful duo and expanding their line-up with a bass player in 2007, Ruiz continuosly worked on their signature sound which is a bit difficult to describe, so think of it like this: Kyuss and Nirvana aesthetics, Gang of Four and Rapture dance elements, and the unrestrained playing of At the Drive-In. So far they have three releases under their belts – a self-released EP named "Taste!", a critically acclaimed debut album called "Erupt!", mastered by triple Grammy-winner Bob Katz, which came out in 2009 on Sonic Doom Records, a small indie label from Croatia and, most recently, an EP entitled "Draw The Line Never A Square", released on Geenger Records as a preview to this album.

In the meantime Ruiz did countless gigs across festivals in Europe, winning the regional band contest in Slovenia, having two videos appear on Croatian television and sharing the stage with great regional and international bands such as Partibrejkers, Let 3, Bernays Propaganda, Stereo MC's, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and Emil Bulls, just to name a few.

Ruiz progressed and matured musically, crafted over a dozen of new songs and decided to make two releases, both for Geenger Records. The second one in the series is an album named "RuizRadioRevolution", a mighty danceable rock monster full of catchy melodies, pumping bass lines and incredible drumming, all intertwined into sounds so modern and fresh, on par with greatest indie bands of today.

Deep and personal lyrics found on "RuizRadioRevolution" criticize the modern society that sees money as the highest value and goal, as well as the growing absence of human interaction and compassion, all through the metaphor of radio, a medium once everyone gathered around to enjoy and listen to music, and share their thoughts and feelings between each other. And if you thought Ruiz don't really practice what they preach, you're very wrong – the guys give a part of their humble income to a donation-dependent organization which helps pregnant women who decided to give birth despite rough social conditions they found themselves in. Well done, Ruiz!

The album was recorded and mixed in Pleasentville studio by bass player Marko Kalčić, and Gregor Zemljič mastered the record. The rest of Ruiz are Tomislav Šnidarić on guitar and lead vocals, and Janko Kezele on drums and percussions. The artwork was handled by a design duo Igor Manasteriotti and Mia Marić.

Now that you know everything, heard Ruiz and got assured they're one of the best young bands to emerge from these parts of Europe, please don't hesitate to support them and their noble mission, because we believe these guys are on the right track to become one of the greatest!

The revolution has started and we need YOU to spread the word!

Track Name: Go Go Go
You wanna live like a renegade
You wanna shine like a monument
and have a soul like some sort of testament
But you don't wanna know the Truth

Come on and take me like you never will
And I will kick in like an amphetamine
Soul is to save, it's not an energy
But you don't wanna know the Truth

Go Go Go
Track Name: You Decide
I could get lost
Or I could be found
I can go both ways and you will decide

If I can be you
And you can be me
We can go both ways
But never get free

And now that we stand
In front of His well
We can say things
But we cannot pretend

For all that I am
And all that I know
I'll be your heart you'll be my soul
For all of my years
And all of my days
You are my guide
I am your maze
All that I have
It's all right in here
I have been told you are so near
You are so near
Near
Track Name: Hey! I Can't!
I would love you but I can't
Already I know I would fail
I would love you but I can't

Every day you have so planned
And I don't want to live that way
I would love you but I can't

Hey you!!! I would love you but I can't!!

Come on over and let's play
Whatever is your favourite game
I would love you but I can't

You have everyone so trained
But I don't want to go their way
I would love you but I can't

Hey you!!! I would love you but I can't!!
Track Name: Come on Baby
Come on baby you're the one
That lives in circles from the start.
I am your rhythm, I am your groove
Come on honey, break it through
I can't believe that I'm still looking better than you

Come on honey I see it clear
You want some answers
And now you're near
Turn away from what holds you down
Come on honey trust me when
I can't believe that I'm still looking better than you

Come on baby now it's time
To make a difference on your part
You have the keys, you know the way
This is the last time that I will say
I can't believe that I'm still looking better than you
Track Name: Let's Make a Sound
You wanna life
You want it now
You wanna long-legged girl
on your side

You wanna live a thousand years
You want to get inside of it
and bail from here


Find your way with me
Let's make the sound that lovers do
I wanna be the one you'll never forget
Something new, and something wonderful


You wanna gate
Your exit way
'Cause you've been sick and tired of it
You look for an escape

Cause you have lived
A thousand years
And all you ever did was,
You disappeared
Track Name: Whatever Forever
Whatever you may think it's now part of me
It got so big that I can't keep it in
To stay within
'Cause every day is a whole new outbreak
Of everything I thought I'd never be
So I let it be, I have the seed, I know the field

Used to be lost and now I'm found again
Once I was dead and now I'm alive again

Whatever code I made He's breakin' it
I used to sell myself out for secrecy
and self -forgery
'Cause freedom isn't what I thought it was
Whatever you may feel it's now part of me
It's time to flee, the bigotry of vanity

Used to be lost and now I'm found again
Once I was dead and now I'm alive again
Track Name: Soul to Soul
I have had a real insight and I know you are
acting like you're not that vile well I know you are

Every time I see your face I can't believe my eyes
That you hide so well

And every time I got inside you all I've sent was guilt
But you seemed OK, so live and well

Our souls were clicking but our eyes were squinting
'cause I never knew what you'll do next

Every single heart you break it's now mine to take
And all the dirt you pass on them, it's now mine to have

Eat more hormones get rid of your organs and keep trampling the truth
Dissimulate,

Bless me if I'm wrong but I just can't believe my eyes
That you're miles away and so live and well
Track Name: Hello God
I need a friend now, I need a bro'
Distant hate and clutching love
It gets on my nerves when I see you in
Sometimes in fractions and sometimes real

Hello God, was I meant to be saved
Am I meant to be brave
Or sleeping on the wrong side of the bed
Or sleeping on the wrong side

I need some space now, I need a room
liberation not a fuckin' broom
It gets on my nerves when I see you in
Sometimes in fractions and sometimes real
Track Name: Pilgrim Song
The Pilgrim song is a blessing for all
Who have ears to hear and eyes to see
Two thousand years old
A perfect tune for your soul
A great thing you don't wanna miss

The Pilgrim song will now baptize your tongue
It is something that you need to sing
I only want you to be in peace

The Pilgrim song is a blessing for all
Who have ears to hear and eyes to see
If you know where're you from
You will know where to go
And for sure you'll know where you’ll end up

The Pilgrim song will now baptize your tongue
It is something that you need to do

Pilgrim song
Track Name: Radiostar
Freedom is upon you
You're already there
But you’re feeling so useless
Like you have no name

'Cause she's not a goddess
She's only a poor soul
She draws your attention as she screams at your door

Radiostar is right back on track
The Radiostar is back
Radiostar is right back on track
It's time for the Radiostar

And maybe you're older
So cynical and wise
But you're feelin' so nameless
Like you don't know who you are

'Cause she's not a goddess
She's only a poor soul
She draws your attention as she strips on your floor
Track Name: So Around You
I'm around you, so around you
I get this feeling that surrounds you
And I can't compete with you no more

I'm the reason why you're living
I'm the reason why you're breeding
I can't compete with you no more

After all it's your home

I'm around you, so around you
I get this feeling that surrounds you
And I can't compete with you no more

Intervention, introspection,
That is my piece of affection
I can't compete with you no more

After all it's your home
But I know that is no way to go

I'm around you, so around you
Track Name: Now I Wanna Be You
I know all there is to know
And I've seen all there is to see
Many years I've been away
Now I wanna be You

Hungry children, women raped
Empty souls, empty plates
Many years I've been awake
Now I wanna be You


I wanna feel things I've never felt before
I wanna do things, I've never done before
I wanna get things I've never got before
I wanna say things, I've never said before

I wanna feel things I've never felt before
I wanna say things, I've never said before
