It's been one year since the Russian invaders started the war against Ukraine. With the orchestral version of their song VELYCH by Ukrainian hard rockers CrossChains, written in their native language, the band shares all the pain, horror and anger that are still their daily bread.

Because there is still war in their homeland. Innocent people are still being killed, cities bombed and families torn apart every day. Stop the war!

Life can be really hard sometimes. But even if it sometimes seems hopeless, you remember virtues like friendship, like love, like courage. With the 2nd single "Alles wird gut" from the new VIVA album "Das ist die Wahrheit" (VÖ 31.03.2023) the band describes how they got new courage to face life through crises caused by toxic people, dubious shysters and "Fähnchen im Wind" (little flags in the wind) and how they take up the fight with everyone with extensive self-confidence.

Flo from VIVA on "Alles wird gut":

"Alles wird gut" was the first song we wrote for the new album. Self-critical, we pressed the reset button to free our minds for positive things. New songs, new tour and a lot of room for creativity. Close your eyes and go for it, even if the risk of falling down is not that small. Take a breath and celebrate life. No need to worry. Everything will be fine."

German alternative rock youngsters, BIRD'S VIEW, have announced new details about their upcoming full-length debut album. Red Light Habits will be out on May 19, 2023 via Drakkar Entertainment / Soulfood Music, and available as CD Digipak, a limited Vinyl LP edition and digital formats. 

Following previously-released, first songs "Spit" and "Phoning", today, the four-piece is inviting you to a massive rock 'n' roll party in their music video of new single "Lay Down"!

The band comments:


"Lay Down' for us personally is a party anthem…

The first ever show we played was in the living room of our guitarist’s parents. It was nuts! 130 maniacs in one house which was probably not the best idea. It was so intense we were laying down in the backyard after this whole thing at 7am in the morning and we knew we’re fucked. You get a bare glimp of it in the video. And yes, it happened like that! Everything!"


Their first studio album Red Light Habits is slated for a release on May 19, 2023, the pre-sale has just exclusively started at THIS LOCATION!

How far do you want to go to achieve your goals? What is the fulfillment of your wishes and dreams worth to you?
In their usual modern and electronic sound BRDIGUNG ask themselves these questions in "So high" and are surprisingly poetic and self-reflective. Balancing between the pressure to succeed, their own desires and artistic freedom, the band provides a brief, rare glimpse behind the curtain and thus finally heralds the release of their new album "Wieder hässlich".
