Exactly one year ago we had the honor of playing the Greenfield Festival! Thinking back on this still gives us goose bumps and it was a huge step for us! Normally we would be in Interlaken today raising some glasses and partying hard but as we all know there is no greenfield this year!
You can check out the video to BFJ of last years greenfield and at least get some good vibes into your homes! Im sure you can recognize some familiar faces in the crowd 🤛 for next years edition get your tickets and support the fest! We will definetly be there!
No Greenfield Festival this year! We are really sad that due to the Corona situation the biggest metal festival in switzerland had to get canceled! Last year we had the honor to play at the fest and were suffering with everyone who was looking forward to this years edition.
Never the less the Foundation tour is on! So lets share the hell out of this and fill up the clubs at the shows!
Cheers HVAAufgrund des durchschlagenden Erfolgs der Tour 2018 bringt die Greenfield Festival Foundation dieses Jahr erneut ein Metal-Festival zu dir nach Hause - in deine Stadt. Drei aussergewöhnliche Schweizer Bands gehen gemeinsam auf Tour: Hellvetica, Lotrify und ARTIFICTION.
Jede dieser Bands repräsentiert eine andere musikalische Facette des Metal Genres, so dass diese Konzerte, jedes für sich, ein eigenes kleines Musikfestival ergeben aus Melodic Death Metal, Thrash Metal, Melodic Metal, Hardcore und Punk. ... See MoreSee Less
I hope you guys are all safe, healthy and taking care of eachother out there! We are all in good shape (well beer bellies are still there and growing :-D), safe and sound.
We have some news for you concerning the future plans of the Band in regards of the upcoming tour and planed shows until summer. As many of you know we actually booked a tour through Bulgaria, Macedonia, Kosovo and Greece starting end of april and finishing mid may. With the current global situation we feel that its not the right time to hit the road. People all over the globe are paralized by anxiety, fear and existencial worries (not mentioning getting sick and dying). This is not about us but its about all of us and the responsibility we have towards our fans, supporters, friends and family. We consider touring now as highly irresponsible and completly misplaced! Not just in Europe but globally. Therefore with a heavy heart but a clear mind we are postponing the "15 YEARS THRASH WITH ATTITUDE TOUR" into autumn.
We want to thank all promoters and bands we would have shared the stage with for their understanding and support! We are working on resheduling everything and we will get back to you guys with new dates ASAP!
Most important now is stay healthy AND HELP EACHOTHER IN NEED! If there is somrthing we can do or requests you want for us to brighten your day please let us know!
Times are tough now days for everyone no matter what job you have, if you are rich or poor or young and old. We kept silent for quite some time but we feel its important to send some words and inform about whats going on in our camp.
As all of you know the situation with COVID 19 is pretty messed up! Due to this the following shows are canceled: - 21.3.2020 Zürich Greenfield Festival Foundation On Tour 2020 | Zürich, Greenfield Festival - 18.4.2020 Rheinfelden DE
As per today the tour still stands but we are in strong doubt that we will actually do it and that it will be possible to do. We will keep you posted and the final decision will be taken by the end of this month.
We are lucky enough to have this as our hobby and are financially not depending on what the band generates! Many other people in this industry have to pay their bills from currently nothing, clubs have to pay their rents from the small money they have etc. Please support the venues and promoters who have supported us through the years and of course every one else also. If you have tickets that you bought please donate the money to them so at least they have something. Also if you want to help i'm sure you can contact them and donate something or send kind words to them. Here are a few of many that have supported us massively during the years: Met-Bar Lenzburg, Musigburg, Coq d'Or, DISTRICT 28, Palazzo Bowling & Beat Club, KIFF Please support! Together we are one! Together we are strong!
We wish all of you guys that you remain healthy and can't wait to see all of you in a moshpit, at a stage dive, at the bar or giving high fives as soon as this situation has passed!
Yeah we have added one more show to our already pretty full tour!
For the first time we are going into Kosovo and play a show there in pristina at the Termokiss! Were super stoked to see many new faces and make new friends on the road!
Many people ask us: How can we support you guys? Its simple! Share our stuff and spread the news that were coming to your city to as many people and as loud as you can everywhere! Or do it like our two great fans and buddies Andrej Mickov and Salloni Iliri Since 1939 for hooking us up with the local promoters in Skopje and Pristina! you guys are fucking amazing!
Our drummer has set up his online store for people who are passionate about music! The guy has a MASSIV amount of CDs and VINYL that he is selling due to different corcumstances! There are different Items that you probarbly cant find at any random CD store!
This one should tease all of you to come to our upcoming shows and the tour! Great review from Metalinside.ch and our friend, die hard supporter and music lover Lukas Frey! Thank you for your kind words buddy! You rule!
Quote: „Der perfekte Soundtrack für den Weg zu einem Konzert, nach dem Hören dieser Scheibe ist man bereit für Moshpits und Stage Dives!“ „The perfect soundtrack for the road to concerts. After hearing this you are ready for moshpits and stage dives!“
Big cheers to Greenfield Festival for the great support! Great festival run by great people! Check put the foundation tour shows coming up in march!
HVA#artistspotlight | Dank dem Band Contest performte Hellvetica am Greenfield Festival 2019 auf der Eigerstage. Mit überzeugendem Thrash Metal und einem Hauch Hardcore & Punk stehen sie nun auch bei der Foundation Tour auf der Bühne und rocken neben Lotrify und Irony Of Fate die Bühne so richtig ab – Am 21.

Were super stoked to announce that we will tour Bulgaria and Greece once again! SInce our latest release BFJ many people asked us to come with the new material to Bulgaria and Greece so here we are! We have decided to extend the Greek dates to total 4. So we will play more shows than the HEARTCORE FEST 2020 in Thessaloniki where were looking forward to seeing all our friends and Moshers! We are really excited to play some new cities and new places where we have never been before.

Hi Folks we have some bad news regarding the show tomorrow in Wil Gare de Lion.
Our drummer has had 2 months back some surgery under his arm. Two days ago the scar opened up which results in a hole under his arm. We tried everything to play never the less but it is simply impossible and to much of a risk to further damage.
Its the first time in the whole 15 years that we have to cancel a show!
Never the less go to the show, support the bands and the event!
Wow! Yesterday we played the second show of the Greenfield Festival foundation tour at The Bruch Brothers and it was packed, sweaty and just great! Thanks for coming out and partying hard with us, Lotrify and @irony of fate! We had a blast!

Words can‘t describe the gratitude we have in our hearts towards you guys who have made the band what it is! Of course its important to write cool music and perform/play well live but its the supporters and fans that bring bands forward and make them what they are! Never forget this and thank you for always coming out, watching and supporting us
