BRANDSATZ Records - The Home Of Electronic Punk
BRANDSATZ Records is the home of electronic punk music such as EBM and others. And it is the home of some selected artists just like ZWEITE JUGEND, Combat Company, TENSION CONTROL, Eli van Vegas and some more.
News from us and our artists:
Finally ZWEITE JUGEND announced to release "Leah und Aliss" with us. It will be a download and streming release taken from the upcoming album "Elektronische Körpermusik" which will be out on March 1st 2019.
Matching Christmas, the Feast of Love, German band ZWEITE JUGEND will release the single ‘Leah and Alissa’ as download on 21 December 2018. The single is taken from the upcoming album ‘Elektronische Körpermusik’, whose release is planned for 1 March 2019 as Digipak, Vinyl, Download and Streaming. Currently, the band is finalizing the album and planning the video for the single, which shall be available also on 21 December 2018.
ZWEITE JUGEND is the passion of the two electronic musicians Eli van Vegas (vocals, songwriting, production) and Marcel Lüke (drums, songwriting), who were previously creating music with their band COMBAT COMPANY. Their passion is Punk and Old-School EBM, whereby they do not shy away even from influences of Techno and Pop on ‘Elektronische Körpermusik’. ZWEITE JUGEND combines different genres, but always remains minimalistic and produces only analogue sounds. Cynical and profound lyrics in a self-reduced garment have been in the focus of their work ever since the release of the first demo in 2015 as well as of the album ‘Liebe ist Luxus’ in 2016 with the included EBM hit ‘Hoch die Tassen!’ and alternate with simple, everyday life content.
Our next release will be TENSION CONTRON with the CD LP Im Rhythmus der Maschinen.
Congrats to Michael from TENSION CONTROL to let us promote and release his first official output. This will happen on Nov. 24th 2017 - physical and digital release. We hurry and keep the pressing plant going as fast as possible to hold the physical copies in hands before the show on Oct. 28th. We would pre-sale them on Nov. 11th. at his DAF support slot. Cross your fingers to let this happen!
The COMPANY is not only back on stage, it is for the record stores as well.
Finally Eli van Vegas has reached out to re-produce a best-of from a decade of the band's history. Finally the instrumentals are almost produced and before the vocals will be recorded, he presents a sneak preview of the artwork to come. The album will contain up to 18 tracks completely in a new - but oldschool - sound just like the single POINT OF NO RETURN released this year on the band's bandcamp page.
If it fits in all the production processes, Combat Company will release this album called BELOW THE LINE on their show in Stuttgart on Oct. 28th 2017.
EDIT: The official release date for BELOW THE LINE limited to 100 copies will be on Oct. 27th 2017.
ZWEITE JUGEND are featured on the EBM Industries Vol. 1 Sampler (coming on Emmo.biz Records). The band took hands on Hoch Die Tassen! and now release an exclusive edition of the track on this record.
It will be released on Oct. 13th 2017 and there will be a (double) vinyl and a CD. And so far as we know there will be a limited box with the CD, the double vinyl, a poster, a patch, lanyard, membercard, slipmat and a cotton bag included. That's a deal!
Special release event is at the Summer Stomp 2017 in Kassel. Come on over and join this event to grab your package.
What a night at the Felsenkeller in Leipzig that was.
And it has been the most beautiful and largest stage that our band ZWEITE JUGEND has seen in their short history. WE WILL NEVER FORGET!
Now Liss has finished the post-production of her material, including some pictures of ZWEITE JUGEND. We are absolutely fascinated how talented she is and how close to reality she captured the video.

ZWEITE JUGEND have just announced that they will be releasing a new single called Leah Und Alissa with us. Additionally there will be two remixed included: Our new artist Micha (TENSION CONTROL) remixed one of our favourite tracks of ZWEITE JUGEND which will be his first output with us (even if it is a remix). And Eli van Vegas started to remix in a minimalistic Techno outfit by this option to get his new personal solo project supported.
01. Leah Und Alissa
02. Euroträume (TENSION CONTROL Remix)
03. Hoch Die Tassen! (Eli van Vegas TechnoMix)
We do not know if we release the single as download only or if there will be a physical record, too. We let know know right here and on our Facebook pages.
And the band is already working on their second album, maybe releasing in the beginning of 2018. Still we are organising a tour in 2018, probably supporting a new album then. We will see!
Today ME THE TIGER are having their great release of the new single "Hollow" (released through RepoRecords) - including an Eli van Vegas Techno Remix of that fantastic track. What a pleasure!
Eli is starting his new solo project with remixing some tracks. This one is for the upstarters from Sweden which is a little more popmusic than the other works that Eli is on at the moment.
Hier sprich das neue Amerika.
Eli van Vegas had a short travel right to Berlin to capture a new video for ZWEITE JUGEND.

WE ARE RIGHT AT THE POINT OF NO RETURN.
Combat Company are back. It has been around two years ago that Homer and Eli have split, now Eli invented to recreate his old baby again and to release a new track that reflects all the years that have passed by and have finally been gone. This release is just the beginning of a new era of the band as he is working on a best-of album which will be completely new produced.
This release is a free download (pay if you want to) on bandcamp.

Additionally we have uploaded the track to YouTube:
What a beautiful life this one could be for a bear on earth.
At the last Winter Stomp our label band ZWEITE JUGEND organized a special auction of a handmade edition of their album Liebe Ist Luxus. It is limited to three copies and every one is different designed with public domain images of some bears. The three-digit value has been completely donated to the "Alternativer Bärenpark Worbis" and Eli van Vegas himself brought the donation to the park the day after the event (with a horrible hangover).
Thank you for your participation. It might have helped more than you could imagine!
What a blast every single Stomp in Kassel is.
This time Marcel and Eli performed with ZWEITE JUGEND instead of Combat Company's position as the resident act. And Micha from TENSION CONTROL joined for a guest appearance and was on stage for nothing less than two tracks. He did for another two songs already when ZWEITE JUGEND played their release show back in December, but this was amazing. He learns a lot and is ready for his own stage soon.
Combat Company have uploaded a new version of Life Is War.
The track was their first output back in 2006. Eli van Vegas reproduced that old single leading the idea to reproduce a collection of former tracks and to release a best-of album with all those songs.

The video debut of ZWEITE JUGEND is finished and released on YouTube.
It was hard work to drink so much and talk to so many people to make this happen. Nothing more to say, but HOCH DIE TASSEN!
