Boys & Girls, it’s been a busy year for the Razorblades.!
Although we didn’t play as many shows as usual and trimmed down the tour calendar to healthy 40 dates, we were working a lot. Since June we’ve been recording our new album, which goes to the manufacturer today. We like it very much and are looking forward to the release in April and the tour, which starts with our CD Release Party in Wiesbaden on March 19.
Apart from that crazy things happened:
Our van broke down two times, shows got cancelled because of terrorist threats, missing PAs and other reasons. We kept going, made new friends, played great shows in the UK, Germany and the rest of Europe, rehearsed the new songs in between, recorded, mixed, worked on the cover design and took care of the rest of our life, the daily grind of a musician…One show was announced as our farewell show…haha, but don’t worry we have absolutely NO plans to retire in the next years!
We wish everybody a Merry Christmas an Happy New Year!
May the gods of Rock & Roll be with you!
See you on the road next year!
Rob, Ralph & Randy

It’s been a while since we did an update here…we were just too busy to participate in the every day madness of telling everybody what we do.
Instead of telling what we do on every social media site you can imagine, we did a lot stuff the old school way….working and sweating in real life
After our spring tour in April and May, Ralf and Rob entered the studio to record bass & drum tracks for the new album. 21 tracks in 4 days, not so bad…
Guitars will be done in August, additional sounds and vocals afterwards
We already work on the artwork, prepare for the photo shooting, think about new videos and booked some shows….
Touring starts again by the end of August…we do Germany,Netherlands, France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the UK, before we finish the new album in december. Release is scheduled for march so far…then more touring!
Now it’s holiday time…see you in the fall!

We’ve been taking a break from the road for the last weeks and will continue to do so…
…after one show on a Monday night – Feb 02, Kucaf/ Mainz (DE)
Taking a break doesn’t mean we do nothing…
Rob wrote 16 new songs and we started rehearsing them for the recording in June. …which means: Yes, we do a new album, which should be out in 2016.
Booking for the spring tour is in the final stages…check the tourdates to see where we go.
And now, ….back to the tour break. See you soon!

Only a few days and we’re leaving home for our annual tour of the UK. 10 days of Rock & Roll are awaiting us and we’re looking forward to see all our friends again, have an English breakfast everyday, drink some ale and do some serious shopping in Brighton!
Besides that we’ll do what we do best: Play some music for cool people and travel the world doing what we love. We prepared a few special songs for our english audience, so be excited!
See you all in a few days!

Aloha boys & girls,
we’ve been sweating like crazy in the last days in Germany, but we’re happy that summer’s finally here!
Why? Not just because it’s hot and you can hang around in the sun…
No, we’re looking forward to the main surf music event in the world, the SURFER JOE FESTIVAL!
More info here: SURFER JOE FESTIVAL
We’ll play there on June 21 at 10.30 P.M. and we’re gonna rock the place!
We also will meet friends from all over the world…among them El Ray, Slacktone, Fifty Foot Combo and Mr. Surfer Joe himself….drink beer, talk about surf music, listen to some great bands and everything happens in the Italian sun…Espresso in the morning guaranteed!
Rob is also doing a seminar on surf guitar on Saturday afternoon, June 21st. Don’t miss it!
After the festival, we’ll play three more shows in Germany and Luxembourg and then take a break for the summer. Don’t worry, we’re working on new songs, nearly 30 shows are booked for the fall, so we’re not lazy at all.
Check the upcoming tourdates & see you on the road!
