In 1988 they appeared on the X Marks The Spot compilation 7” on Smorgasbord Records, one of the first documents of the burgeoning Connecticut Straight Edge scene. Also in 1988, they released their Spirit LP, once again on Smorgasbord Records, and a summer tour followed in summer 1989 with Unit Pride, Insted and Gorilla Biscuits. Up Front remained active through 1992, releasing the Daybreak 7” in 1990, touring the US again in the summer of 1991, and completing their first tour of Europe in the winter of 1991–1992.

TAUSEND LÖWEN UNTER FEINDEN

visit TAUSEND LÖWEN UNTER FEINDEN on facebook visit TAUSEND LÖWEN UNTER FEINDEN’s website Mit ihrer Gründung Mitte 2014 haben TAUSEND LÖWEN UNTER FEINDEN den Angriff begonnen. Die erfolgreiche Debut-EP „Licht“ setzte als erstes Lebenszeichen der Band alle Zeichen auf Sturm: Mit sozialkritischen deutschen Texten und kurzen, prägnanten und zugleich eingängigen Songs steht ein wahres Manifest am Anfang ihres Schaffens. Die Erstauflage des 2015er-Debutalbums „Machtwort“ – ein Konzeptalbum, inspiriert von Hermann Hesses „Siddhartha“ und in Songwriting und Stil eine konsequente Weiterentwicklung – war nach kurzer Zeit ausverkauft. Live präsentierten TAUSEND LÖWEN UNTER FEINDEN ihren Fans das Material auf der BANE-Abschiedstour, um sich in der Folge weiter Schritt für Schritt ihren Platz in der deutschen Hardcore-Welt zu erarbeiten. 2016 waren sie auf der Rebellion Tour mit MADBALL unterwegs und spielten etliche Festivals. 2017 wurde zusammen mit der kalifornischen Band LAST LIGHT die Split-7“ „A Compilation of Unity“ veröffentlicht. Der nächste logische Schritt war die erste eigene Headliner-Tour im Herbst 2017 durch Deutschland, Österreich und die Schweiz. Im selben Jahr fand eine weitere wichtige Premiere statt: Die Band spielte zum ersten Mal beim With Full Force Open Air. Anfang 2018 konnten TAUSEND LÖWEN UNTER FEINDEN durch eine Club-Tour mit RYKER’S ihre Fanbase erweitern und spielten zudem neben anderen Festivals auf der Coretex-Bühne des Myfest in Berlin. Das zweite Album „Zwischenwelt“ wurde im Mai 2019 veröffentlicht und war wie der erste Longplayer als Erstpressung schnell ausverkauft. Im August 2019 traten TAUSEND LÖWEN UNTER FEINDEN bei dem Wacken Open Air auf. Auch das letzte Endless Summer Festival 2019 war eines der Highlights in diesem Jahr neben zahlreichen Clubshows und Festivals wie zum Beispiel dem Tells Bells Festival. Die für das Frühjahr 2020 gebuchte „Neue Geschichten Tour“ durch Deutschland musste aufgrund der Corona-Pandemie auf zunächst unbestimmte Zeit verschoben werden. Im Jahr 2021 erfolgte eine Line-up Erweiterung, indem Dennis (ex Brightside, ex Still Screaming und ex Ryker‘s) als zweiter Sänger neben dem Gründungsmitglied Matthias in die Band einstieg. Mit dem neuen Line-up wurde Ende 2021 eine neue EP aufgenommen, die im Frühjahr 2022 veröffentlicht wird. Mit dem neuen Material knüpft die Band stilistisch an die stürmischen Anfänge zu „Licht-EP“ Zeiten an und startet ab März 2022 eine neue Offensive mit Clubshows und Festivals.

DEVIL IN ME

visit DEVIL IN ME on facebook Devil in Me from Lissabon were born in 2004. Started as a project they worked really hard and involved this band to the king pins of the european hardcore scene. After a longer absense those guys are back and stronger than ever. Their new album is a masterpiece which contains their most agressive songs, dedicated to the true believers. All their previous records had their own flavours and a very unique style. With their new album they keep reinventing themselves while adding new tasteful igredients. This album sounds like a proper 90‘s crossover record…. Razor-sharp riffing, angry vocals, a grooving bass and a hard hitting drum work, in addition a popping production which explodes. DEVIL IN ME whose characteristic sound perfectly closes the gap between „Rock Star Mayhem”, „Modern Metal“ and the „Classic NYHC Hardcore” are ready to start a new and successfull chapter and to shape their carrier.
