And Also The Trees to release compilation album ’Untangled' - An Introduction to

15th of March 2018, 17:24

EN

It is early 1981 when The Cure places an advertisement in the Melody Maker: 'support act wanted'. Hundreds of demos pop up on the doormats of Robert Smith and bandmates but there is only one that really impresses them. It’s the tape of a post-punk band that started only two years ago: And Also The Trees. Four English teenagers from a tiny village near Birmingham, who never thought a moment about fame at that time. Still, it happens anyway: during the day the Simon brothers and Justin Jones are sitting at their school desks, in the evening they play with their band in venues if front of hundreds of people. Robert Smith is so charmed by the brothers’ band he decides to produce their first demo tape, while The Cure colleague Lol Tolhurst later produced their debut album.

So far so good for And Also The Trees. A tour follows and the young band receives a lot of acclaim in France and Germany. Especially when their sound slowly changes from a typical new wave to a much more refined sound, based on their surroundings - the English countryside. Even when they continued to produce great albums, it doesn’t bring them the same star status of their contemporaries and friends The Cure. A conscious choice of the band, who find it more important to reinvent themselves with each album.

It does bring the band a real cult status in France, Germany and Japan where they sell-out venues such as the Paris Bataclan with ease. A status that, like the band itself, has been going on for several decades but they were never able to establish themselves in the Netherlands … until today! Their brand new compilation album Untangled, with seventeen handpicked songs by the band from a 39-year career, appears on 16th March 2018 on the Rotterdam-Based Indie label Gentlemen Recordings.

On this special compilation album you will find the best of 39 years of And Also The Trees, or of 13 studio albums and dozens of EPs. While listening you can hear the many transformations that the band went through, without breaking any style. Never heard of this band? No problem: Untangled will be released especially for the fans (and curious little ones) in the Netherlands and Flanders and is the ideal 'step-in'.

You want to see And Also The Trees live? Then you are in luck because for the first time in a long time they’ll play in the Netherlands again at Wavefest III, at De Baroeg, Rotterdam.

Verzamelalbum And Also The Trees 'Untangled' verschijnt 16 maart 2018 op Gentlemen Recordings

Het is begin 1981 als The Cure een advertentie in de Melody Maker plaatst: 'support act gezocht'. Honderden demo's belanden op de deurmatten van Robert Smith en de zijnen, maar er is maar eentje die écht indruk maakt. Die van een pas twee jaar geleden begonnen post-punkband: And Also The Trees. Vier Engelse pubers uit een piepklein dorpje in de buurt van Birmingham, die nog geen moment dachten aan roem. Het gebeurt toch: overdag zitten de broers Simon en Justin Jones gewoon op de schoolbanken, 's avonds spelen ze voor zalen met honderden mensen met hun bandje. Robert Smith is zo gecharmeerd van de band van de broertjes dat hij de eerste demotape producet, The Cure collega Lol Tolhurst zal het debuutalbum produceren.

So far so good voor And Also The Trees. Er komt een tour en de jonge band vindt veel bijval in Frankrijk en Duitsland. Zeker wanneer hun sound langzaam verandert van typische new wave naar een veel verfijnder geluid, gebaseerd op hun omgeving – het Engelse platteland. Ze maken prachtige platen, maar het brengt And Also The Trees niet de sterrenstatus van generatiegenoten en vriendjes The Cure. Een bewuste keuze van de band, die het belangrijker vindt om zichzelf met elk album opnieuw uit te vinden.

Het levert de band in onder andere Frankrijk, Duitsland en Japan een cultstatus op en het verkoopt zalen als de Parijse Bataclan met gemak uit. Een status die net als de band zelf al meerdere decennia mee gaat. In Nederland kreeg And Also The Trees geen voet aan de grond in. Tot nu. Het verzamelalbum Untangled, met zeventien door de band zorgvuldig geselecteerde songs uit een al 39 jaar durende carrière, verschijnt op 16 maart 2018 op Gentlemen Recordings.

Op dit bijzondere verzamelalbum vind je het beste van 39 jaar, 13 studioalbums en tientallen EP's And Also The Trees. Je hoort de vele gedaanteverwisselingen die de band onderging, zonder stijlbreuk te plegen. Nog nooit van de band gehoord? Geen probleem: Untangled verschijnt speciaal voor de fans (en nieuwsgierige aagjes) in Nederland en Vlaanderen en is de ideale 'instapper'.

And Also The Trees live zien? Dan heb je geluk, want voor het eerst in lange tijd spelen ze weer in Nederland – in totaal speelde de band maar drie keer in de buurt – en wel op Wavefest III in De Baroeg Rotterdam.

German cult-EBM act Armageddon Dildos prepare new LP but first... the 'Herbstzeitlose' EP - listen to 2 brand new tracks now

14th of March 2018, 17:16

In the middle of the recording process of their forthcoming new album, the band's first since 2011's "Untergrund", Armageddon Dildos' Uwe Kanka decided to release the EP “Herbstzeitlose” on MCD and as a download.

The MCD itself consists of 4 brand-new tracks plus 7 bonus remixes. You can already listen to 2 tracks on Bandcamp.

The bonus remixes were executed by fellow German cult acts PNE and The Psychic Force, next to reworks by Tolchock, Hell:Sector, Venal Flesh, Kant Kino and Technoir.

Fans will love this new 11-track EP.

Armageddon Dildos formed as a duo (Uwe Kanka and Dirk Krause) in 1988 in Kassel, Germany and debuted 2 years later on the legendary Zoth Ommog label with the single "Never Mind / Pressure" followed up by "East West". In 1991 they launched their very first album "That's Armageddon". Since then the band conquered EBM hearts and minds despite having slowed down their output over the years.

As of 2011 the band is signed to the Belgian industrial label Alfa Matrix where they released "Undergrund".

Today, exactly 32 years ago, American Industrial band Ministry released their second studio album Twitch. Unlike their synth-pop sounding debut album With Sympathy and due to the influences of bands like Front 242 and Cabaret Voltaire, Twitch received a more dark and aggressive production approach by Adrian Sherwoord and the bands head and voice Al Jourgensen.

Over The Shoulder, accompanied by a video directed by Peter Christopherson (Throbbing Gristle /Coil) was the only single taken from this album

In 1990 Twitch was reissued on CD and contained two extra tracks, being the exclusive tracks on the Over The Shoulder 12” single until that time.

Tracklist Twitch:

1. Just Like You

2. We Believe

3. All Day Remix

4. The Angel

5. Over the Shoulder

6. My Possession

7. Where You at Now? / Crash & Burn / Twitch" (Version II)

CD bonus tracks

8. Over the Shoulder (12" Version)

9. Isle of Man" (Version II)

Today it’s exactly 33 years ago since The Klinik performed at Xenon, Aarschot, Belgium.

10th of March 2018, 18:18

Today it’s exactly 33 years ago that The Klinik (at that time called Absolute Controled Clinical Maniacs) performed at Xenon (10.03.1985, Aarschot, Belgium). Two tracks, Sick In Your Mind and Vietnam which were recorded during this live show, appeared later that same year on the first The Klinik album Sabotage.
After this release The Klinik soon made a name for themselves with their cold and harsh EBM sound and their live shows, where they performed with their heads wrapped in gauze, wearing long black leather coats.
Even today, Sabotage is still considered as one of the most influential electro-industrial-EBM albums and became a must have collector item.

NEWS The Arch release one brand new song every month of 2018! This month their second single 'Alien Ann'!

The Arch release one brand new song every month of 2018! This month their second single 'Alien Ann'!

08th of March 2018, 17:15

In 2016, The Arch released Fates, some say one of their best albums so far!

The band played the biggest festivals like M’era Luna, Wfest, Young & Cold festival in Augsburg and headline shows in Paris, London and Cologne. They also joined Skinny Puppy and Clan of Xymox in den Haag and Oberhausen.

"We didn’t stop making music”. We had so many ideas and songs that we wanted to make a successor for Fates.

In December 2018 we will release a new album with 12 new songs but we want to release each song seperately through the year. Every month a new one will be launched on itunes/spotify through Trisol. Each song will be created, mixed and finished before we start other ones. Why? Each song is a world on its own: a different story, atmosphere and sound. We want to have another approach than the usual, when a band goes into the studio with an amount of songs, and finish them as a whole, with the same global sound.

In a way, we start an album without being an album. And also not knowing how it will sound at the end. That makes it a whole different approach. And it makes us curious. It’s like an adventure.

In the end we have 12 songs that are also inspired by the month we are releasing it.

Winter will be different than Autumn. Maybe darker. Maybe warmer. We don’t know. Every song gets special artwork and sleeve so they all look like singles. We are also working on video material to release with every track."

The first song Blood Crystals was released on 02/02/2018. (Click to view)
Today, their second song, Alien Ann has been released! (Click to view)

"Alien Ann started with a dream image: a girl, only wearing a dress of light. She’s very enchanting but she turns out to be icy cold and deadly dangerous. She has an evil alter ego, growing like a cancer. She has no control over her schizophrenia. Her malicious side will try to jail you in her dress of light, to digest you, in a massive long-term pain. She will use her sunshine lure, to hide the torturing witch that she will be to you. A radiant sorceress with her doomed spells, leading you down to hell. You put your hand over her mouth, to suppress her spells but she’s talking through your hand. You are hypnotized by that witch, with no escape."

Enjoy the brand new video/single Alien Ann below!
