Music video “Illusion”

Here it is… *drumroll* … the music video for „Illusion“! It’s our first high-end blockbuster production! We did all the stunts ourselves, some monsters were unfortunately severely harmed during the making of this video;) Thanks so much Oliver Mohr (director) and Zeno Legner (DOP) and your whole crew! Enjoy!

Video premiere: “Full Moon Theatre”

Our first video for the new album is here! The piece is called FULL MOON THEATRE and you can see us during the recording of OF MONSTERS AND BIRDS at Bauer Studios Ludwigsburg. As you can see and hear, we went a little cuckoo in there, but that didn’t stop us from having a blast! This won’t be the last video for the new album, so stay tuned…

Don’t forget to get tickets for our release concert on April 15 at Ampere Munich here!

Monster Music Video

We finished filming our music video last night and had a wonderful time! There will be evil white waddling sausages, which we have to defeat! Here are some pictures of the process, and we can’t wait to show you our video in 2016! DSC08190DSC08460Monsters

Is it christmas already? We were awarded a sponsorsip by the Initiative Musik, an arts sponsorship programme of the German Federal Department for Culture and the Media.

Fusion Festival 2015

fusion37We’re back from Fusion Festival and it’s been a blast! What a wonderful festival, what a wonderful audience – and the backstage crew is a league of its own, some of the nicest people on the planet! Had it been up to us, we wouldn’t even bothered to make the trip back home:)
Fusion Festival, we hope we’ll meet again!
