Straight from the heart of Germany comes The Lamplighters with a ferocious mix of power punk and party anthem in the form of their new single, “Basement”. Harking back to the days of everyone waking up on the floor as a sign of a good party and safety pins as a clothes fastener more than a fashion statement this is 2 minutes 46 seconds of fast-forward flashback guaranteed to clench your fist and stomp your boots.
About The Lamplighters:
The Lamplighters, from Kothen, Germany formed in 2009 as a group of three. After several member changes and comings and goings, the band settled in 2013 with it’s current line up, consisting of Schusti and Malzi (Guitar / Vocals), Ante (Bass) and Enno (Drums).
Drawing influences from The Ramones, Hot Water Music and Against Me – Traditional melodic punk rock runs true throughout The Lamplighters. ‘Views’ is a statement and admission of feelings, fears, dreams and experiences straight from the heart. ‘Views’ is modern, socially aware punk rock, played at it’s finest.
The Lamplighters have become mainstays of the Mainland European punk rock scene, having relentlessly toured since their formation. Extensive tour dates in support of ‘Views’ are planned throughout Spring 2016. Dates TBA.
‘Views’ was recorded over 10 days in May 2015 at “Studio Null 5” in Bitterfeld, Germany.
The new album, ‘Views’ will be available on LP, CD and Digital Download through No Panic Records starting December 18th.
