Here’s a little video explaing what it’s all about:

This is not a Rock’n‘ Roll Year…

// Oktober 15th, 2020 // Kommentare deaktiviert für This is not a Rock’n‘ Roll Year… // Allgemein

2020 began with high hopes for THE RAZORBLADES, but turned into something completely different.

Let’s start with the good things:

We released our new album HOWLIN AT THE COPYCATS on double vinyl and CD.  It got good reviews and a nice feature in

GITARRE & BASS and OX Magazine.

Rob aka Martin Schmidt wrote THE SURF GUITAR BOOK and just finished his next guitar book DER KLEINE GITARRENHELD.

Booking went well and we were ready to play Rock’n’Roll in front of people again….

On March 15 everything changed. Germany went into a lockdown, concerts got cancelled and that’s basically the way it still is, if you happen to play in a band.

Hopes for the fall tour were crushed. We had to cancel all shows for this year and can’t really start booking for 2021. Bad times for a DIY band…

But don’t worry, we’re working on stuff and will return asap!

Till then – order a CD, T-Shirt or vinyl from the webshop….that would help a  lot!
