THE FUTURE OF GOTH-ROCK IS NOW!

The new s/t album “WISBORG” – OUT 02/02/2024!

The hopefuls of the German gothic scene are back! Almost three years after WISBORG’s last album “Into The Void”, the band is a different one: Appearances at M’era Luna, Amphi Festival and Plage Noire as well as opening for Lord Of The Lost on their tour for the ESC hit album “Blood & Glitter” have not only significantly increased the popularity of the goth rockers, they have also merged WISBORG, which have now grown into a quartet, into a permanent unit.

Time for a musical exclamation mark! A band-titled album almost always marks a turning point in one’s own discography, and for “WISBORG” this is true in more than one way. For the first time, the band worked with Lord Of The Lost frontman Chris Harms as producer, who also appears as a feature guest on the lead single “Im freien Fall” (the music video for the song was filmed on the joint tour in the locations as well as in the nightliner.)

The band is also breaking new ground visually: “WISBORG” breaks with the black-red-beige color scheme of the previous releases and presents a photo of the band as an album cover for the very first time! Stefan “Heilemania” Heilemann is responsible for the image and the visual design.

In addition, “WISBORG” features German lyrics for the very first time – exclusively!. “Singing in German is a double-edged sword,” explains frontman Konstantin Michaely. “If your audience understands right away what your songs are about, then the lyrics naturally carry more weight. This makes you more vulnerable, but at the same time more approachable. Many bands hide behind the English language, we have actively decided to break down this hurdle and to get into more direct contact with our fans from now on.” WISBORG’s usual thematic melange of love, sex and death with an existentialist superstructure is also expressed in the new album, but on the one hand it is presented in a much more nuanced way, on the other hand it is supplemented by themes such as loneliness and isolation in the big city, social anxiety and failing to live up to one’s own expectations.

Last but definitely not least, the songwriting of the eleven tracks is more sophisticated than ever. “WISBORG” goes straight to the ear, but with each subsequent listen, it unfolds new levels instead of wearing out and doesn’t care about genre standards. Nikolas Eckstein and Konstantin Michaely don’t play it safe, but continue their own, unique musical path – the future of goth is now!
