"Immer erst am Anfang", the first single from the album shows: You can still expect a lot from VIVA!
The new album "Das ist die Wahrheit" is a mixture of rock, pop and punk.

VIVA continue their steep rise in the German rock scene with their first single "Immer erst am Anfang" from the 3rd album.
As usual VIVA: rocking, catchy, honest and uncompromising.

Flo from VIVA about the new single:
"Immer erst am Anfang" was the last song I wrote for the new album "Das ist die Wahrheit". We worked very intensively in different studios and with different producers to bring "our" sound and the love for German music even better on the album. We developed further during this time, especially in "us" personally as a band. So the song is like a best-of summary of our last 1,5 years, in which we worked intensively on the album.

We all live in a demanding time, surrounded by too much hatred, war, violence, ill will, poverty and inequality. Often, in all the stress of everyday life, we miss a little bit of charity and the ability of people to take more care of each other. Especially now, in the contemplative Christmas season, we want to send hope and sunshine into a cold, ever faster turning world with this song. We want to make people think. Therefore, our video clip also begins with a valuable quote from one of the greatest personalities of the last century, Nelson Mandela!
"No one is born hating other people because of their skin color, ethnic background or religion. Hate is learned! And if you can learn to hate, you can learn to love! Because love is a much more natural feeling in a person's heart than its opposite. "

Guitarist Ändi on the song:
"We chose this song and released it for Christmas because the song "time to wonder" and the message it sends has always been very close to our hearts. Our vision was, "What would the song sound like if GREEN DAY did it? We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2023, let 2023 be the year for all of us".


This is punk rock! BRDIGUNG run to top form with their new single and show clear edge! Where others duck away and gloss over, BRDIGUNG are not afraid to be ugly and call a spade a spade. "Punkrock Genozid" is a musical sweeping blow and another facet of their musical skills without bending.

Julez from BRDIGUNG about the song:

"With our new song we party energetically as rarely before. Clear announcements and settlements are the focus of the song, where we use different genres to create our own, very individual sound. It will be hard, it will be loud, it will be BRDIGUNG"

SILENZER actually brings the fans a wide range of hard metal music into the house. With the last album "X" they even made it into the official German album charts in 2022!
But on their upcoming mini - EP "B & A" the 5 Austrians once again showcase the broad spectrum of their music and strike softer tones! A dark and morbid interplay of piano, cello and acoustic guitars shows SILENZER in a new guise and presents the fans a surprising musical experience. With their piano version of their hit "Deine Nähe tut weh" the guys not only give us a first taste of their EP, but once again show their songwriting talent.

Guitarist Dave about the single:

"With the piano version of our song "Deine Nähe Tut weh" we want to give our quieter and more soulful side the stage it deserves. A very meaningful song in our band history wrapped in a new garment."
