The pre-single “Euphoria” has been available since the 19th to be heard in the MPN or on request and will be published on 11 February March in all digital sales outlets.

Fulda has been recorded.

On the album a total of 12 songs about ’Knowing and Wanting' will be heard, each for its own small cosmos, looking for the shaking, presuming the shock, lovingly intertwined with each other and breaking in as a thunderstorm over us, which looks in its intensity unparalleled.

... thanks and get ready! This grimme price suspicious good band name stands since 2009 for neat DIY punk rock from Chemnitz. The former two - since October 2014 three - musicians Jakob, Christoph and Markus express their love of hate in the form of unadulterated guitar music. The whole thing is mixed with "brontal entertaining" live dude footage. The "Freie Presse" recently titled a concert by . . . tagr as a mixture of a successful rock show and a failed poetry slam. And it's true. What gets bogged down loves itself - and this love expresses itself again and again in fat riffs, tight drumming and hmynic choruses. After an EP, an album and again an EP, all self-produced with shirt sleeves, the new record was recorded in March 2016 with the help of Kurt Ebelhäuser (Blackmail, Scumbucket) in his recording studio45.

The guest is MAECKES (Die Orsons / Chimperator), known as a member of the Maeckes & Plan B duo as well as a member of the group Die Orsons. The German rapist, Markus Winter, has been talking about well-kept rhymes and fat beats since his youth: at first with freestyle rap, later as moderator of the Stuttgart Hip-Hop Open as well as various releases that made it to the German album charts.

With his band “Die Orsons” he painted Hip Hop in a concrete grey phase and opened a new door for Deutschrap. As a solo artist, he has written the blueprint for German “Indie Rap” with “KIDS” and from time to time he gives a secret guitar concert.

"Listen to your heart" sings Martin Ebert in the first song of his debut album "Viele Visionen", and it immediately becomes clear that this is also his premise when writing the song. All ten songs that he presents now unite the very private and intimate representation of emotional states and personal stories that have probably already happened to many of us in one way or another. Martin Ebert's honest and poetic texts captivate in their subtlety and precision with a linguistic style that is rarely found in this country.

A rapper looking for colours: Where are all the colourful colours? This question was asked by rapper Maeckes in his song “Graustufenregenbogen” in a new edition of Rock am Kopp. In spite of unclear weather forecasts, several hundred visitors had gathered in front of the Marx Monument to listen to the 33-year-old. In the preliminary programme, Martin Ebert had been on stage. After his appearance, the German rocker from Gera, whose new album “Viele Visionen” was partly made in Chemnitz, was good things. ” I am mega-satisfied”, he said in response to his short concert. Ebert followed Maecke’s performance as an audience. (Source Free Press)
