[ 31.07.2007 ] - De/Vision's petition for their fans


Attention of every De/Vision fan! Because the CD sales have dropped down dramatically, the label and the band have come to the point to deliver «Noob» only to chart relevant music stores and traders at the sale beginning. Where does that lead to?

If «Noob» is as close to your heart as it is to the band's, then please buy your copy at or one of the chart relevant musicstores, such as Media Markt, Saturn, Müller, Karstadt, Kaufhof, WOM and the franchise.

If you are customers of smaller and cheaper mail order stores or especially of POPoNAUT you may think this is not a good idea - band understand this, but with this campaign we all must try to provide the neccessary attention in the media world to the band. Only by a high chart entry it is possible to place a band like De/Vision in several media like radio or TV. And that is the only way to support good electronic music.

We would be glad to see you supporting this campaign!

[ 31.07.2007 ] - The Cure: new album and tour

The Cure
The Cure

The Cure's frontman Robert Smith has confirmed that the new The Cure yet-not-titled album will not be released before October or November 2007. The band's 13th studio album, which seems to be a double limited CD, will be preceded by a (possibly download only) single to be released in early September. The album has been recorded in the UK with Robert Smith on the producing helm and will be released on Suretone/Geffen.

Robert Smith said: «What will probably happen is that a double album will come out like a limited edition, mixed by me. A single-disc version, which I assume will be primarily chosen by the label, might get mixed by someone else in order to have a different thing. There's a concern Cure fans will feel like they have to get both, but the fact is, I've agreed to sell the double version at a single album price, because I feel that strongly about it. It is almost impossible to get a double album nowadays. I naively thought my standing as an artist would push aside all objections, but the world gets ever more commercial as it turns.»

Tracks include «Lusting Here In Your Mind», «The Hungry Ghost», «The Perfect Boy», «Christmas Without You» and «Please Come Home». «There are songs about relationships, the material world, politics and religion. They're very upfront and dynamic,» says Smith of the new songs. «People will be surprised how stripped-down and in-your-face the record is.»

The Cure started their new World Tour on July 27th at the Fuji Rock Festival (Japan). The still tentative schedule would have the band in Hong Kong and Singapore in late July/early August, then a few shows in Australia and New Zealand in August, North America in September and October, Europe in Spring 2008 and South America after that.

Smith promises The Cure will play new material during North American Tour, but not too much. «A lot of people who come to Cure shows want to hear something they haven't heard before, but they also want to hear old songs,» he offers. «I enjoy playing them. But the idea of going out and doing a two-and-a-half hour show and including 10 or 12 new songs would actually be really awful, I think. A show is an experience. Anyone coming to a Cure show isn't going to go home and think about buying the album. They've already made their minds up by the fact they've bought a ticket to see us.»

[ 20.07.2007 ] - «About A Dead» - new Hocico's single

«About A Dead»
«About A Dead»

«God Is Dead!» - when Erk Aicrag of Hocico screams out these words in his typical blood-curdling manner, their is no doubt that the latest offering from Mexico's premiere harsh electro / industrialists is intended as a full-frontal assault... and not just musically. The song is a merciless romp against religious fanatics wrapped up in an incessant dance track which sees Erk and Racso returning to the raw, beat-laden power of their early releases. Stripping the track of anything that might inhibit their pure, aggressive energy «About A Dead» kicks in with a catchy sequencer line and a mighty chorus part that is destined to burn into your skull: «About A Dead» combines all the strengths of the Mexican duo and is a mandatory item for any electro club. The b-side «The Last Warning» is a dark monumental soundscape building up to a furious finale - the ideal counterpart to the unleashed aggression of the title track.

«About A Dead» will be released on August 10th, 2007 via Out of Line.


[01] About A Dead
[02] The Last Warning
[03] About A Dead (Killed by Proceed)
[04] About A Dead (Speedy Gonzales Remix by Lola Angst)
[05] About A Dead (Remix by Cephalgy)
