Directly from the heart of the dusty “Ruhr”-Area the DEAD KOYS release their newest work “Wehringhausen”.
This is their third EP, which got named after a suburb of the city Hagen. Reasons are obvious: Wehringhausen is where the DEAD KOYS are rehearsing, where they garner their ideas and where they recorded this EP full of charm, emotions and recall value. Without becoming one in a million punk-bands, the DEAD KOYS create their own sound somewhere in between of dusty melodic Punk and the Emo-Stuff that reminds us of the 90s. Playing more than 80 gigs with bands like Leatherface, Nothington and Captain Planet left their marks and made the DEAD KOYS a routined Live-Band. “Wehringhausen” is now the result of three continuous weeks in the homestudio, the result of several broken strings and it is a homage to the “Ruhrgebiet”, Punk and also to disorientation and the will to break free from the daily routine.
Luckily one of the Band-Members is a professional graphic designer, so “Wehringhausen” did not just get spiffed up on the inside, but also on the outside:
The EP comes on white vinyl, is screenprinted on the B-Side, on the Cover and got its Download-Code in series on top.
