Kinky White Horse kicked off with a mind-blowing mixture of balloons and melodies. Safari followed suit, showing exactly why we needed to have them back in Berlin, and were very much appreciated by the crowd.
We’ve never had as much fun on stage. Best crowd ever! Let’s do it again. Let’s just pretend it’s summer. Every day until next year.
OUR RELEASE DAY. SUMMER IS OFFICIALLY OUT TODAY!!!
Hamburg. Hamburg. We Heart Hamburg.
The bar sold out within two weeks, so we were moved to the club. It was soooooo hot. Possibly one of our favourite concerts. Ever. Such an amazing crowd, such brilliant people. We want to come back to Hamburg. Tomorrow. And the day after. And again after that.
Before we could get to the concert, we had a few stops to make at a few radio stations on the way down. Radio Eins was the first one, where we met the lovely Anja Caspary and chatted a bit about Summer.
The second would have been MDR Sputnik, but some builders found a unexploded bomb from WW2 next to the building an hour before we arrived. Oh dear. We went back the next day. The building was still standing, but everyone reacted a bit funny when they found out Pierre was British.
The concert was fantastic. We can’t actually get over how good they’re getting and how amazing each crowd is. After this one we spent about 15 minutes speechless in the backstage.
The wonderful Cindy Ciser supported us, make sure you check them out.

This picture is exciting for people who listen to metal. So just in case they come across our page, we thought we might have something to please them, too.
A short visit to our label’s office preceded the concert, where we ate cake and made a little video of us sticking our limited edition Neuzeit singles together. Coming soon!
We’ve always had a good time in Bayreuth, usually with the glass walls of the uni venue, Glashaus. This time we were in a place called Rosi’s as part of an indoor festival. Great crowd, great voices. We had fun. The new songs appear to be working :)
This time we shared the stage with CAPTAIN CAPA, recent winners of the New Music Award. Love!
Bayreuth is pretty. Wagner came from Bayreuth. He wasn’t very pretty, though.
Simon working the pump like a G.
The reason for all of the very boring, obvious, pointless, shit jokes we had to hear ALL evening from the hilarious people who surrounded us. “Willste Ficken?” My, how inventive.
This week our escapades took us to Mühlhausen, which is apparently bang in the middle of Germany, right on the equator. We took the time to try out some new drumming parts, a little nervous of what giving Pierre a floor tom my lead to. Twas ok.
We played there with a band called SUPERSHIRT. They have a song which we really liked which goes: Buy less, then you won’t need so much money, then you don’t have to work as often, and have more time for yourself. Nice.
The tour has officially begun. Champagne and dirty fingernails.
The album is coming out in exactly 14 days, but we decided to start selling it live on every date of the tour as of today. Every copy we took with us to the ruhrpott city of Dortmund is now gone. More of this, please.
The concert was a lot of fun, it’s getting better and better now people know the words to the songs, not that we’re lazy and don’t like singing, but it’s nice, you know.
Satellite navigation systems are tricky things. Yesterday ours didn’t really know much about roads in Saxony and, woah, 500 metres until the border, and suddenly we were in Poland. We like Poland. Pierogi, kocham cie!
We almost asked one of the tired-looking pretty girls waiting by the side of the road the way to Zittau, but she looked busy.
When we actually found Zittau, which is tucked away in a really nice party of the world between the Polish and Czech borders, we had an amazing concert. Don’t think we’ve ever crowd-surfed that much before. We have bruises. Word.
