Who has not yet understood why this band is different, will understand it now at the latest. Cheeky and sarcastic, wild and colorful, a serious social issue is addressed with a sympathetic wink to the inclined listeners. Sprechgesang mixed with punk rock offbeat, melodic catchy hook and a final conclusion, which is hard to beat in self-irony, make this number unique and different.

VIVA is heading for the singles charts with two autobiographical songs. GENAU HIER and the B-side WIR SIND UNSER ZIEL captivate with the honest illustration of the band's ups and downs in the first five years of the band's history. From the brilliant start to discord and accusations. VIVA is still alive. Because in good times you have to celebrate every triumph extensively. In bad times, stand together loyally.

With "Herzjagd" the first single including video clip from the new TODSÜNDE album of their new same named album is released today.
With this, the Neue Deutsche Härte rockers give a first long-awaited foretaste of their second work, which will be released on June 16th, 2023.
"Herzjagd" is not only the title track of the new album - it clearly indicates where the guys want to go.
Directly into your hearts!

That the five guys from North Rhine-Westphalia are really worth every sin they have already proven with their debut album "Geistesgift". For their second studio album HERZJAGD, for which they brought producer Jonas Rabensteiner on board for the first time, the new team has managed to give the songs a completely new musical touch.

The bar is thus packed again 3 shelves higher and the fans can look forward to multi-faceted album that sounds more brute than ever.

With "Herz Eines Kriegers" the first single including video clip from the new RAUHBEIN album of the same name is released today.
With this, the folk metal high-flyers give a first long-awaited foretaste of their second work, which will be released on 7/7.

"Herz Eines Kriegers" is not only the title track of the work - it also sums up the band's core message. "The song describes everything RAUHBEIN is about," says Henry. "No matter what happens in life, get back up and keep going. Every one of us is down at one time or another. It's not bad to fall down - it's only bad not to get back up afterwards. So take heart and gather your courage and rise above! Anyone can do it!"

Henry knows what he's talking about. Many times in his life he has been at said ground. As the son of a working-class family, he grew up in meager circumstances and struggled through life with a wide variety of jobs. After a serious accident he is unable to work and has to rearrange his life completely.

In the video for "Herz Eines Kriegers" Henry can be seen in the midst of a magical initialization ritual - a druid casts his spell for a warrior who must face the challenges of life. The video was shot in the Werra-Meißner district. "Where exactly we can't reveal," Henry explains with a grin. "Because we built a fire there. If we say where we were, we'll get in trouble."

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".

Starting signal for the long awaited 33RPM debut album. The first single finally hits the "record shelves" of the streaming services! It's called "TANZ MIT MIR". A very ska and catchy punk rock anthem with earworm and sing-along guarantee.
After the band has sent some quiet and thoughtful tones in December, with the words of Nelson Mandela and Fury in the Slaughterhouse, it is now clear where the journey with the THREE-THREE will go. Directly on the kisser and forward! A lot of "OH OH" choruses, "OI OI ", brass with a positive message and catchy melodies await you.


The music video was shot in a wonderful and unique location, which has now unfortunately fallen victim to the authorities madness. A journey through time, manifested for YOUTUBE eternity. Ändi has special memories of this place, as he experienced many wild evenings with bands like the BROILERS, DRITTE WAHL and his punk rock band "KALTE KRIEGER" at the time.
With a record deal and a finished album in the luggage, the band will release many more singles in 2023. You may be curious.
Guitarist Ändi about the new single:

"Do you know the feeling? You go to a club and then she stands unexpectedly in front of you. This very special person. The one of millions. A person whose charisma and beauty takes your breath away and makes your heart beat faster. You imagine spending the evening with exactly this person, dancing and simply looking deep into her eyes and kissing her. Do you talk to them, do you ask them to dance, or is it all "just" happening in your thoughts and dreams? 33RPM asks you all to let your imagination dance in their Punkrock&Ska anthem."

Andreas Kümmert says about his first single "Leave the Radio on":

"Leave the Radio on" is my first favorite single of several to come, from my upcoming album - working class hero - that will be released on 04/14/2013 via Soulfood Music.

I'm very happy to have found a new label home at Soulfood Music and to be able to lead the way together with the experts Jochen Richert, Maiximilian Foese,

Sandra Eichner, Michael Menges.
The single is for me a tribute, to the good old days, when various TV shows or radio broadcasts were still a social campfire,
about which you then talked on Mondays at work or at school. Through today's media landscape and especially the internet,
people's attention has been scattered and we all lack red lines in the media. I live in the present.
But in the good old days of the 60s - 2000s, there was common media that people consumed. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case today. That's why ... "Leave the Radio on"
