Fr 2 Feb 2024 Archiv

Im Februar 2024 gehen Schattenmann auf große „Día de Muertos“ Tour. Die Tour passend zum gleichnamigen Album führt das Quartett um Sänger Frank Herzig durch ganz Deutschland und Österreich. Von Hamburg bis München, von Berlin bis Wien wird die Band Abend für Abend ihre fabelhaften Live-Qualitäten unter Beweis stellen. Denn auf der Bühne fühlen sich Herzig & Co. am wohlsten: „Wir machen Musik, um zu entertainen, Schattenmann-Shows sind pures Entertainment! Bei uns wird gelacht, geweint, getanzt, geschwitzt, also all das, wofür moderner Metal steht!“

Das Schattenmann-Credo: „Wir wollen Emotionen wecken, von guter Laune bis Wut, gleichzeitig darf es aber auch gerne mal melancholisch oder nachdenklich werden. Bei uns wird gelacht, geweint, getanzt, geschwitzt, also all das, wofür moderner Metal steht!

TesseracT

Unprocessed, The Callous Daoboys War of Being World Tour
Di 6 Feb 2024 Archiv

As time rolls inexorably forward, music’s ability to capture the moment remains its most important trait. Five years on from the release of their last studio album, UK progressive metal titans TesseracT have reached the most significant and creative moment in their career to date. An audacious, ambitious and all-encompassing body of work, War Of Being is an album that could change everything.

 

Formed in 2003, TesseracT are rightly and widely regarded as pioneers. Since dazzling the world with their debut album One in 2011, they have spearheaded a uniquely adventurous and creative movement that has expanded metal’s vocabulary beyond all measure. Although routinely credited as instigators of the ‘djent’ subgenre, the UK five-piece have long since transcended such associations and are now widely acknowledged as one of the most authentically progressive and unique bands on the planet. From the majestic complexities of One and the bittersweet, melodic crunch of 2013’s Altered State, to the experimental sheen of Polaris and the ruthlessly focused tech-trip of 2018’s Sonder, TesseracT have consistently stood apart from the competition, while forging a musical and lyrical world that is theirs alone. Meanwhile, they have established themselves as a live band of great power, with countless acclaimed shows and festival appearances notched up across several continents.

 

Fast forward to 2023: Daniel Tompkins (vocals), Acle Kahney (guitar), James Monteith (guitar), Amos Williams (bass) and Jay Postones (drums) have completed work on their fifth full-length album. TesseracT are back, armed with a collection of mesmerising and idiosyncratic new music.

 

“I think we realised we needed to do something different this time,” says Daniel Tompkins. “It’s been five years since Sonder, and we wanted to mix it up and try something new. With the whole progression of TesseracT in mind, this is one of the most important albums we’ve ever done. You do get further into your career and you think, ‘How long will this go for?’ You can’t predict what’s around the corner. I think we’ve all had a change in outlook on life in the past few years, and so we decided to make this a big album.”

“We’ve always tried to punch above our weight, which is important,” adds Jay Postones. “To stretch it and make it look and sound as big as you possibly can, that’s always been really important, and particularly with this record, because it definitely sounds shitloads better than the stuff we’ve done before!”

 

There comes a time in the life of every progressive band when the only option is go for broke. War Of Being is a brave and challenging concept album, in true prog tradition. Just as the band’s music has evolved tenfold over the last few years, so has their thematic ambition. A tangled web of personality traits, traumatic events and surreal, off-kilter premonitions, War Of Being is TesseracT’s most detailed and demanding record yet, but also their most profoundly satisfying and complete.

“The concept is massive,” says Daniel. ”Amos is actually writing a novel, based on it. It all stems from his original ideas. In essence it’s about the war within oneself. It asks the question, who are we? It ties into Sonder because that record was about looking outwardly at people around you and realising that everyone has a very unique, independent life, and that we don’t notice because we’re so insular about playing a part in a bigger story. This time, we turned the focus inwards, so it’s a very introspective album.”

“It’s about fighting to forgive yourself for being you,” explains Amos Williams. “That’s something that’s always been quite a struggle for me. That’s where the concept of this war comes from. There’s this set of characters that just popped into life, that represent the various fractious elements of my own personal psyche, and we’re just allowing them to grow, basically, and go on a little bit of a journey. We’ve ended up with a collection of songs that feel like they tell a story. On their own, they work fantastically. Put them together with a theme and a concept, and it feels like it allows you to dive into it more, and it has an extra level of excitement to it, beyond the music itself.”

 

An immersive voyage through conflict, confusion, enlightenment and resolution, War Of Being is a thrilling and thought-provoking album. From the tantalising, atmospheric rush of the opening ‘Natural Disaster’ onwards, it is a free-flowing but meticulously crafted tour-de-force. Songs like ‘Echoes’ and ‘The Grey’ deftly mould the classic TesseracT sound into surprising new shapes, while the amorphous, unpredictable likes of ‘Legion’ (featuring a monstrous quasi-duet between rhythm section alumni Williams and Postones) and ‘Burden’ stride purposefully away from the expected, weaving ornate melodies around a newly inventive framework of polyrhythmic angularity. Most mind-blowing of all, the towering, 12-minute centrepiece of the title track….

 

“I think it was the element of being forced to experiment by the very nature of working with (producer) Pete Miles,” says Amos. “He’s a Devil’s Advocate for always trying something different and pushing us into our discomfort zone, and not shying away from a somewhat combative studio scenario! [Laughs] That was quite amusing because he’s also one of the most chilled out people you’ll ever meet. But as soon as it comes to making music, it really is all about seeing what happens when you smash two or three or four egos together. That’s why it probably sounds a little outside of the box known as TesseracT quite a lot of the time.”

“I don’t think any of it was calculated,” says Acle Kahney. “There’s still a big part that’s me writing a chunk of it and making demos. But there was a lot more of us jamming together in the studio together this time, at least for the first couple of weeks. The second half of ‘Legion’ was essentially Jay and Mos jamming, because we had the first part of the song and didn’t know what to do with it. I was busy tracking guitars for another song, and I came back and they’d come up with the rest. It was nice for things to progress naturally like that.”

 

Taken in isolation, War Of Being is an obvious milestone for this most inquisitive of modern metal bands. However, the lyrics and music are only part of this story. In keeping with their reputation for always looking forward and exploring new possibilities, TesseracT have also been working on new ways to spread the new album’s fascinating message. War Of Being will arrive adorned with startling new artwork created by Amos Williams.

 

“We’ve always had an album like this, with this presentation, in mind, but it’s always just been out of reach for us,” states Amos. “It’s always been my own personal creative ambition to do something like this with artwork. I wanted to make it almost like stills from a film that doesn’t exist, but giving it a really surreal edge, because the album deals with the way your imaginations spins off.”

Due to be preceded by the release of its colossal title track, War Of Being is the kind of record that every band wants to make. Simultaneously definitive and ground-breaking, it provides a telling snapshot of band at the height of their powers, in thrall to the creative process and hell-bent on shattering boundaries along the way.

“I think it’s been a wonderful vehicle, for us to let loose,” says Amos. “That’s why you can hear everyone doing everything they’ve always wanted to do within the format of an album, and that’s pretty fun! The ambitions get bigger and bigger, every time we achieve one little step. It ain’t getting any easier! [Laughs] Every step is harder and harder, and there’s a gravity that you have to overcome.”

“On the first record, you just want to release an album have it be in the record shops and then go on tour,” says Jay. “Now, we accept that that’s happening, so the goals keep stepping up. It just grows.”

“This has always been a battle,” Daniel concludes. “We’re a modest progressive metal band, but we’ve got big ambitions and we always have. We always strive to get there, and it’s a struggle, but we haven’t lost the enthusiasm for it. We want bigger and better things all the time. This is just the start of it.”

X Ambassadors made their full-length debut with VHS, a 2015 release that saw the band transition from Ithaca alt-rockers and Brooklyn-indie-scene outsiders to Billboard stalwarts. Now certified platinum, VHS provided an intimate look at Sam Nelson Harris and his brother Casey Harris’s youth, delivering the genre-defying hits “Unsteady” and “Renegades” and leading to a three-year global touring odyssey as well as a string of high-profile festival performances. VHS was followed by X Ambassadors’ 2019 sophomore album ORION, which they supported with an extensive headline tour of the U.S. A project inspired by ’60s and ’70s soul and R&B, the band’s Belong EP arrived in March 2020. The third full-length from X Ambassadors—The Beautiful Liar is the latest and most ambitious outcome of the band’s hyper-creative tendencies. Released in 2021, the band pays homage to those beloved fictions of their childhood through lead singles, “My Own Monster” and “Okay”.

Hamburg. Pünktlich zum ausverkauften Tourstart seiner exklusiven Clubtour 2023 und zur Albumveröffentlichung von „Der Fels in der Brandung“ am 15.09.23 kündigt Joachim Witt seine gleichnamige Tournee an. Der Ausnahmekünstler wird 2024 für seine Fans auf den Bühnen in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz spielen.

Er ist, wie Fans betonen, »einzigartig, ganz besonders«. Viele Male erfand Joachim Witt sich bereits neu und blieb dabei immer am Nerv der Zeit maßgeblicher deutscher Musikgeschichte. Das alles spricht für den Mann, der 1981 nur einen einzigen Song brauchte, um einen festen Platz in den Annalen deutscher Popmusik einzunehmen: »Goldener Reiter« kletterte im Aufwind der Neuen Deutschen Welle (NDW) an die Spitze der Charts und hat bis heute nichts von seiner Wirkung eingebüßt.

Joachim Witt ist eine Lichtgestalt der deutschen Kulturszene. Seit über 40 Jahren steht der erfolgreiche Musiker auf der Bühne. In diesen Jahrzehnten hat er eine enorme Wandelbarkeit bewiesen. 17 Alben veröffentlichte Joachim Witt seit 1980. Zwei Signature-Songs – nämlich »Tri Tra Trullala (Herbergsvater)« und »Die Flut«, letztgenannter ein Duett mit Peter Heppner (Wolfsheim) prägen das öffentliche Bild von Witt. Nach diversen Top-Ten Charterfolgen, Gold- und Platinawards (allein „die Flut“ verkaufte mehr als 900.000 Einheiten) und über 40 Millionen Streams schlägt Joachim Witt nun ein weiteres, neues Kapitel seiner Karriere auf.

Mit seinem neuen Album „Der Fels in der Brandung“ wird er seine Zuhörer auf vielen Ebenen abermals überraschen. In enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem Flensburger Gold-Produzenten Hardy Krech (Elephant Music), hat Witt wieder einen ganz neuen und eigenen Sound kreiert, der seine Stärken und seine Botschaften in eindrucksvoller Weise mit elektronischen Klängen und Gitarrenmelodien verwebt.

„Mein neues Album liegt mir persönlich sehr am Herzen. Es ist eine Reise durch Emotionen, Erfahrungen und Geschichten, die ich in den letzten Jahren gesammelt habe. Gemeinsam mit meiner Band werde ich die Bühne rocken und die Songs aus dem neuen Album sowie meine Klassiker präsentieren. Es wird eine unvergessliche musikalische Reise werden, und ich kann es kaum erwarten, euch alle wiederzusehen und mit euch zu feiern.“, so Joachim Witt.

Nach der Veröffentlichung von „Der Fels in der Brandung“ kehrt Joachim Witt in voller Bandbesetzung auf die Bühnen Deutschlands zurück. Im Rahmen seiner Tournee präsentiert er erneut die enorme Bandbreite seines Schaffens.

Por Más Tour – Europa 2024
Dublin + Valencia + Barcelona + Madrid + Paris + Berlin

Cultura Profética, the iconic Latin American Reggae Roots band, returns to Europe in 2024 with a new repertoire of songs and, of course, their greatest hits – Por Más Tour 2024 – Por Más as the search for more love, more sensitivity, more collaboration, more empathy for everyone.

Emerging from the vibrant landscapes of Puerto Rico, Cultura Profética, Latin Grammy winners and Grammy nominees, have cemented their legacy as one of the foremost reggae bands in the Spanish-speaking world since their inception in 1996. But to categorize them simply as a reggae band would be an understatement. Over the years, the band has gracefully weaved genres like bossa nova, tango, jazz, and salsa into their music, creating a unique fusion that resonates with fans across continents. The band’s lyrics are just as eclectic as their sound, addressing pressing socio-political and ecological topics, celebrating Latin American identity, and exploring the nuances of relationships and love.

The band’s captivating performances have set records at renowned festivals, such as Rock al Parque and Stereo Picnic in Colombia or Vive Latino MX. Their electrifying stage presence has also led to back-to-back sold-out nights at iconic venues like Luna Park in Arg and the Movistar Arena in Chile.

Their album La Dulzura achieved Gold certification with its standout single «La Complicidad» gracing the Billboard Hot 100 for over 50 weeks. Their earlier work, Canción de Alerta, is also a Gold-certified testament to their musical prowess. In 2019, Cultura Profética became the first independent Latin band to record a Spotify Singles, further showcasing their trailblazing spirit. In 2015 they secured both the Gold and Silver Gaviota awards at the iconic Viña del Mar festival in Chile.

Stephen Sanchez

John Vincent III The Troubadour Takes Europe
So 18 Feb 2024 Archiv

Stephen Sanchez has materialized at the forefront of popular culture with a sound that’s as timeless as it is necessary for the times. It’s easy to sway into the embrace of his breezy baritone stylings, warm guitar phrasing, and untouchable charisma. His music is also an eternal bright spot illuminated by a belief that the kind of romance and love we used to see on the silver screen is still possible.

Barely in his twenties, the singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer has already enchanted audiences everywhere. His breakout single “Until I Found You” went multi platinum, vaulted into the Top 25 of the Billboard Hot 100, and generated nearly 2 billion streams powered by the original, piano version, and duet with gold-certified pop singer and songwriter Em Beihold. He delivered much talked-about performances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Meanwhile, he also sold out successive headline tours and earned acclaim from Billboard, Consequence, and more. He was even invited by Sir Elton John to perform “Until I Found You” at Elton’s last show ever headlining Glastonbury.

Now, he spins a story unlike anything you’ve ever heard (or seen) before on his 2023 full-length debut, Angel Face [Mercury Records/Republic Records].

The record tells the tale of “The Troubadour Sanchez” a fictional musician who blew up in 1958 after his debut performance of “Until I Found You” on The Connie Co Show. He immediately lit up popular culture, but was tragically gunned down in 1964 after stealing the heart of a mob boss’s girlfriend. Her name was Evangeline. However, his long lost debut has been unearthed 59 years later in the form of Angel Face.

“When you hear Angel Face, I want you to know that these songs were written for you to soundtrack the moments of great love and great heart ache within your lives,” exclaims Sanchez. “There’s a song for the state of every soul. When you listen to this story, I hope you find yourself within it. I hope that you might find them within it—the person who makes this life far more beautiful.”

Tracks like the single “Be More” explore these ideas of love. Sonically the soft piano underlines the ghostly echoes of Sanchez’ voice, while the quivering drumbeat gives way to the central plea, “Darling, please let it be more.”

“The song reflects a dialogue between lovers, in this case ‘The Troubadour Sanchez’ and Evangeline,” he notes. “‘The Troubadour Sanchez’ is saying how much he wants Evangeline and is asking her to ‘Be More’. That’s the purpose of the song. It affirms your love is far more than you could ever understand, know, or hold within your hands by yourself.”

Elsewhere on the album the upbeat “High” flaunts his fiery high-register. His voice swoons into a falsetto over a farfisa-laden groove.

“You’ve got this desperate begging song with ‘Be More’ where the narrator is longing for that one true, divine love,” he continues. “Then, there’s ‘High,’ which is a continued discussion between ‘The Troubadour Sanchez’ and Evangeline. It essentially says, ‘I’m going to steal you from something bad, i.e. your man, and make you feel good for the rest of your life’.”

Then, there’s “Doesn’t Do Many Good.” Over a sparse, yet simmering sonic backdrop, he leans into a soulful cadence with flashes of vocal fireworks. “This song is a painful conversation between The Troubadour Sanchez and Evangeline. Though Evangeline loves him, she can’t pursue him because she’s with somebody else. Throughout the song, The Troubadour Sanchez tries to explain that her proclamations of love don’t do him any good if they can’t be together.”

“The story of Troubadour Sanchez is something I feel deeply connected to,” Stephen explains. “Even if his ending was bleak, he lived life with an undeniable passion.

Crystal Fighters have always sought to open themselves up to the world. After all, they’re inherently a fusion concept – part British and part Basque; part old and part new; part pop and part traditional. But when the world changed, so did they. Separated on different continents by the pandemic, the band looked inwards, and started to realise what had been missing. Dialling into the energy of their earliest recordings, new album ‘Light+’ is their most inspired, dynamic, and addictive statement yet, the sound of a band utterly renewed.

2010’s debut album ‘Star Of Love’ introduced them to the world, succeeded by excellent sophomore set ‘Cave Rave’. A decade of lights, camera, and action followed, with Crystal Fighters becoming used to lives of perpetual motion. “I’m always excited to visit different places,” says frontman Seb Pringle. “There’s always something to learn from different music and cultures around the world.”

While this simple message sustains the band, it also pushed them to the brink. At the dawn of the pandemic they were close to burnout, beginning to lose sight of what motivated them. When lockdown came, it was almost blessed relief, a respite from an unwieldy schedule. Drawn to South America by his passion for music, singer Seb sought out the cumbia, champeta and bullerengue rhythms of Colombia. Without a better option as the world started to shut down, he decided to stay put, seeing out the pandemic in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta on the Caribbean coast of the country.  “It felt like living outside of normal time,” he says. “I was on a beach, with not much access to the outside world. It came as a relief, really. I was able to enjoy life, and reflect on my experiences.”

Co-writer Gilbert Vierich remained in the UK, while band mate Graham Dickson saw through these world-changing events from his new home in the United States. Throughout all this the band remained connected – by phone calls, Zoom meetings, and WhatsApp groups. The world may have slowed down, but – if anything – their creativity increased. “We were writing purely for us,” the singer points out.

When he was finally able to return to their base in the UK in the summer of 2021, Crystal Fighters were primed and ready to go. It was as if a fire had been lit inside them, resulting in song after song.  Around 60 tracks were demoed – more than some bands write in their entire career – before the group entered the studio. “There’s an infinite amount of new things you can do with music,” he says. “That’s what keeps me interested. It’s how you can mix old and new music, traditional sounds with cutting edge electronic music.”

The idea was simple: to give fans a fresh definition of Crystal Fighters by returning to their core values. As a result, ‘Light+’ is packed with ideas – from rave workouts to tropical pop, from hints of cumbia to delicious pop melodies. “We wanted to get to the roots of who we are, and how we felt when we were first coming up,” the singer points out. “When we only wanted to make music for ourselves, and to make people dance at our shows.”

Old friends Charlie Hugall and Luke Smith returned to produce the new record, with additional help in the electronic arena from Ghost Culture – whose collaborative record with Falle Nioke became a mutual soundtrack for the group’s lockdown activities. A band unleashed, ‘Light+’ feels unforced, natural, and completely true to their back catalogue. Take new single ‘Manifest’ – constructed with the help of FYFE, it opens with crisp guitar chords before surging into a heady 80s inspired synth feels, blessed with light, hope, and a quiet sense of urgency. “It’s about chasing the setting sun,” says Seb. “The freedom that travel can bring; and escaping the confinement we all felt for so long in our lives. Something so many still dream of escaping.”

In a way, the single points to the energy of the album as a whole – it’s about embracing freedom, and making people move. Looking to their live shows, Crystal Fighters have a way of zeroing in on a frenetic and reckless disregard for convention. “Our rule was, if you want to play fast, then play fast. In the live shows, our favourite moments can be incredibly fast, and kind of chaotic… but in the collective energy it all hangs together.” It’s also an album of deep emotion, however. Take ‘Carolina’ – a real-life love story set in Colombia, it’s a homage to a woman Seb fell for, someone who escaped the rat race, and made her way to the coast. “She was living a different life… with not a lot of money, but a lot more happiness. I wanted to tell her story, of how she claimed her freedom by letting go of what society expects of us to pursue her own dreams. Living a life you enjoy rather than living for your work.”

Lyrically, the band move from grand, thought-provoking statements – ‘Multiverse’ and ‘End The Suffering’ – through to simple ‘boy-meets-girl’ pop songs. “It’s the contrast,” Seb says. “Real life has to happen as well. Each of us is looking for love, or pining over a situation in our lives. It’s honest to write about that, as well as something that’s a bit more spiritual. It speaks to who we are as a band.”

‘Love x3’ started as an acoustic idea, before becoming a lush tropical onslaught, asking fans to open their hearts once more. “It’s asking for us to experience love as a collective. It’s what can sustain us, and heal us as a society,” he says. “We’re all in need of real connection. And we need music that speaks to us as individuals, as people who are fallible, and need help. Sometimes life can be a very tough place to be. Music can really help people open up.”

Scorching album highlight ‘Tranquilo’, for example, takes its name from a carefree expression common across the Spanish-speaking world – put simply, it means ‘all good’. “We wanted to capture that vibe, and take it over to English-speaking cultures,” he says. “It’s a reminder of that familiar feeling of when we want to be all calm and chill, but reality gets in the way. It’s asking people to step back from the traffic of your thoughts, and observe them. Life can be hard… so you’ve got to take it easy.”

Right now, Crystal Fighters are living their lives in a ‘tranquilo’ fashion. Each moment counts, and they take life for what it is. “It taught us the value of collaboration,” he says. “The time we spent apart mellowed us all out, in a certain way. We’re happier than ever, and we want to use our platform to deliver our message to the greatest number of people that we can. As the album says, more light. More positivity, more clarity. We all need more hope in our lives.”

Crystal Fighters are like a burst of light in the darkness – soon the sun will be coming up, and the party can begin.

Dirty Honey

Can´t Find The Brakes!! Tour EU + UK Support: Bird's View
Do 29 Feb 2024 Archiv

Dirty Honey kündigen große EU- und UK-Tour für Februar/März 2024 an.
28 Shows in 17 Ländern – 4 Termine in Köln, Hamburg, Berlin und München. Zweites Studioalbum „Can’t Find The Brakes“ seit 3. November 2023 im Handel. Tickets ab Mittwoch, 15. November 2023, 11 Uhr im Presale via CTS und myticket.

Frankfurt, 14. November 2023 – Nach ihrer ausverkauften und gefeierten Stippvisite im Februar und den brillanten Sommer-Shows in 2022 kündigen Dirty Honey ihre Rückkehr nach Deutschland an – mit neuem Album! Die aufstrebenden US-Rocker spielen in Köln (15. Februar, Luxor), Hamburg (19. Februar, Kaiserkeller), Berlin (29. Februar, Columbia Theater) und München (5. März, Backstage Halle). Die Konzerte finden im Rahmen der „Can’t Find The Brakes“ EU- und UK-Tournee statt, die die Band für 28 Headline-Shows in 17 Länder führt.

Die von der Kritik hochgelobte neue Single „Won’t Take Me Alive“ ist jetzt in den Top 5 des USA Rock Radio und war 8 Wochen lang auf der Planet Rock UK Playlist. Im November 2023 veröffentlicht Dirty Honey ihr zweites Album „Can’t Find The Brakes“, das in voller Länge erscheint, während die Band gerade ihre ausgedehnte, neunwöchige Headline-Tournee mit 39 Terminen in Nordamerika absolviert. Produziert von Nick DiDia und aufgenommen in seinem Studio in Byron Bay, Australien im vergangenen Frühjahr.

„Can‘t Find The Brakes“ wurde von Fans und Kritikern gleichermaßen begeistert aufgenommen – ein Album, das die ganze Bandbreite des Songwritings der Band zeigt. Vom groovigen Opener „Don’t Put Out The Fire“ bis hin zu „Coming Home (Ballad of the Shire)“, einer zutiefst persönlichen Ballade, die einem das Herz in Millionen Stücke zerreißt und eine 180-Grad-Wende vom energiegeladenen Rock’n’Roll darstellt, für den die Band bekannt ist. Vom Stakkato-Riffing von „Satisfied“ bis zum bluesigen Albumabschluss „Rebel Son“ bringt „Can’t Find the Brakes“ Dirty Honey perfekt auf den Punkt.

Marc LaBelle, Sänger und Frontmann der Band, erzählt: „Das Album Can’t Find The Brakes war eine völlig andere Erfahrung als das Album Dirty Honey. Covid hat eine Situation geschaffen, in der wir nicht wirklich gelebt oder etwas erlebt haben. Aber für unser neues Album konnten wir wieder Zeit miteinander verbringen. Wir haben mehr als einen Monat mit Nick, unserem Produzenten, in seinem Studio in Australien verbracht. Allein die Tatsache, dass wir wieder mit ihm im Studio waren – diesmal ohne ZOOM – und wir alle physisch im selben Raum zusammen waren, ermöglichte uns einige Experimente, die alle zu dem breiten Spektrum an Emotionen auf dem neuen Album beigetragen haben.“

About “Can’t Find The Brakes” …

„One of the strongest aspects of „Can’t Find the Brakes“ is the album’s variety. At a time when bands sometimes play it safe and stick to one particular sound, DIRTY HONEY switch up their sound from track to track, offering everything from thick, hard rock anthems to soft, hymn-like numbers. DIRTY HONEY are just getting started, and if they can pack in this much variety this early in their career, it’ll be exciting to see where they are in 10 years.“
