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"




With "ALLES BRENNT" the Hamburg rock band EXISTENT not only release a new metal album, but also start the official pre-sale for their new album "STILLLER HELD".

"ALLES BRENNT" is not the raised index finger, but the clenched fist, as EXISTENT make clear directly musically and lyrically. With their new single, the five guys from EXISTENT not only whet the appetite for their second and by the fans long-awaited new album "STILLER HELD", but also show themselves belligerent and concerned about the future of this world.

But the head is not left hanging and so shall arise from the ashes new by resisting together against the current conditions.

The German high-flyers BIRD'S VIEW sound old and new at the same time! Punk, hardcore, skate music and modern sounds all in one. The band creates a unique magic that has earned them a deal with Drakkar Entertainment / Soulfood, among others.

With their new single "SPIT" BIRD'S VIEW bring generations together in the mosh pit and show that handmade music is the most fun after all! With their first song in 2023, BIRD'S VIEW show that they remain young at heart, driven by youthful vigor and eager to break down sonic and ideological barriers.

"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"
