"Anthaupt" is out now!

A thousand thanks and kisses to the beautiful souls who helped us making this record:

Carol Schuler (vocals)
Sebastian Koelman (trombone)
Julia Pfenninger (cello)
Daniel Gisler (keys, synths)

A million thanks to Philip from Harrison Recordings for once again making this sound like a hungry Nicolas Cage in space!

A big cheers to Magnus Lindberg Productions for his golden tone.

And of course all our love to Eff Kabbe and Wolves And Vibrancy Records for giving this album a cosy home.

There is a vinyl preorder running for Anthaupt here:

And for "Dress Rehearsal" here:

Both scheduled for May 20th. Until then: Download these tunes, burn them on cds, give them to your freinds and tell them you love them! Piss Love and Petrolbombs <3@

Hard love


It took some black magic, but our album is now MIXED! 🖤

Hard Love from the Hans


Our dear friend Clemens has decided to leave the band. Although it breaks our hearts to let someone go you've spent the last 18 years playing music together, we wish Clemi all the best. From the buttom of our souls! Clemens "die Klemme" Clemente, we love you! And we will miss you very much :( That's why we played a cover of one of the greatest songs about heartache we know. Godspeed, dear friend!
