KISSIN' DYNAMITE with new studio album 2016

The fact that KISSIN' DYNAMITE don't do things by halves should be known in the meantime all over the place. After national and international success with STEEL OF SWABIA (2008), ADDICTED TO METAL (2010), MONEY, SEX & POWER  (2012) and recently MEGALOMANIA  (2014), the young rock band from Baden-Württemberg returns with their 5th studio album GENERATION GOODBYE in summer 2016.

Times of revolution

„GENERATION GOODBYE symbolically represents a feeling of longing, breakup and a new start, which frequently is topic in the 11 new songs“, Ande Braun, guitarist of the band, expresses. „And yet it's actually no concept album“, adds his brother Hannes, singer & songwriter of the quintet.

The songs are as honest and genuine as never before. The reason for this can be found in disengagements and changes in terms of business as well as private aspects of every single one. Thus the band parted with their management in 2014 and since then organized themselves completely self-sufficient.

Furthermore, no external producer was obligated anymore. Instead, one relied on the distinct sound concept of the band, which singer and songwriter Hannes Braun simultaneously put into action as producer on the mixing desk. „We had this vision of keeping full control this time in terms of the sound we exactly wanted. Thereby, we had the freedom to deliver the truest, most authentic and most genuine album for us, totally without any pressure or compulsion from outside”, he remembers. Steffen Haile, bassist of the group, adds: „In the meantime, we cede a minimum of work and so do more and more by ourselves. We think, the more comes from ourselves, the better the end product gets.“ Hence the members spread tasks as songwriting, PR, merchandise, social media etc. internally.

„Of course I use writing lyrics in order to process certain incidents out of my private life, where just recently quite a bit has happened“, reflects lyricist Andi Schnitzer about the lyrics!

In times of social changes

Also current events of politics and economy would have influenced the songwriting. „We live in a time of constant accessibility, where everyone needs to know everything at any time. The wrong things are taken for too important. That's not healthy anymore. Like this, the people get unsecure, blind and shy.“ attests Andi Schnitzer. „Because of the fact that in terms of these things we look into the future with quite several worries, GENERATION GOODBYE can also be seen as an act of liberation in a way. We are the generation that can achieve something. Our generation is able to see what goes wrong and so we call for turning one's back on this progress consciously.“

Generation smartphone

In practice, this already begins with banalities. It would be already a start to spend an evening with good friends or visit a concert – but without taking along the mobile phone. You consciously would have to decide for not being reachable for the whole world, at least for a few hours. Like this, you don’t run the risk of getting the feeling of possibly missing something. „Instead, I have the possibility to enjoy the Here and the Now, the moment as it is, for me and others.“ tells Ande Braun.

Solidarity & endurance

The fast pace that our time entails also doesn't stop when it comes to music. The evidence was recently provided by the biggest record companies of our time. Artist identities are created overnight which are supposed to disappear from the screen the next day in order to clear the way for their replacements. „In this way we're subjected to a loss of value that we want to beard with our music.“ guitarist Jim Müller thinks. „We're sure the reason of our success is our endurance and our team spirit as a band.“

And the fact that the band plays music together since their school days, you notice with every tone. The listener gets blown away by tight played Hard Rock 2.0. And so, every single one of the 11 tracks of the regular edition has got hit potential. From the hymn-like „Generation Goodbye“ to the up-tempo track „Hashtag Your Life“, on to the tragic „If Clocks Were Running Backwards“, right up to the gloomy ending „Utopia“, the disc pierces into the auditory canals, sticks to the listener and serves every imaginable mood and facet. With GENERATION GOODBYE, the Swabians prove in usual consequence how versatile they are. There are no fillers on the longplayer with a running time of over 45 minutes.

Additionally, there is a Digipak, including bonus tracks & a bonus DVD with opulent material as well as an exclusive fan box set, which is strictly limited to worldwide 500 units and which comes with several delights.
