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.

SUZI MOON

SUZI MOON

visit SUZI MOON on facebook visit SUZI MOON’s website The unstoppable SUZI MOON comes roaring back with a debut solo EP Call the Shots, a powerful clutch of high impact songs which reaffirm her status as one of punk rock’s most vibrant performers! With a stellar rock & roll pedigree reaching back to when the then 15-year-old MOON joined her sister’s famed punk band, CIVET, the singer-songwriter has followed through with songs that show her incredible growth. Recording two albums for Hellcat Records and touring with the likes of SOCIAL DISTORTION, DROPKICK MURPHYS, and FLOGGING MOLLY (all before she turned 21), MOON established herself as a ferocious punk truth-teller with both a distinctive personal style and a fiercely untamed stage presence. After CIVET went on hiatus, MOON formed TURBULENT HEARTS, a high-intensity trio that quickly gained popularity in their hometown Los Angeles scene and earned followings in the US and Europe, playing such high-stakes settings as the Rebellion Festival and Punk Rock Bowling. The restless, boundlessly creative MOON next co-founded unique garage/punk/stoner female power trio L.A. MACHINA. The group almost immediately issued a memorable EP for Alternative Tentacles before abruptly flaming out in late 2020. Undeterred, MOON set about crafting the groundbreaking songs which comprise Call the Shots, and was in the recording studio just months later. Set for a May 2021 release on Pirates Press Records, Call the Shots is classic MOON: hard hitting, dynamic and thunderingly expressive, the perfect artistic antidote for today’s uncertain climate. A daringly mesmerizing performer and bold, intuitive, composer, SUZI MOON consistently delivers an appealing, high-velocity authenticity that is hers alone.

ULTHA

ULTHA

visit ULTHA on facebook Ultha is a five-piece metal band from Cologne (Germany). The band started in early 2014 after the demise of band members‘ old bands, such as PLANKS, GOLDUST, ATKA, IRA, etc. Their music can roughly be described as a hybrid of US-Black Metal, (Funeral) Doom and Dark Wave. If you can imagine Ash Borer and Emperor teaming up with Neurosis to play songs by Fields Of The Nephilim you might get an idea of Ultha’s sound. Lyrically the band doesn’t follow any classical metal cliches, instead ruminating about the inner darkness and sadness of our human struggle to find happiness and getting lost in its failures.
