In 2017, the Swabian power group returned to the scene with founding members Matthias Sayer (vocals), Alex Scholpp (guitar) and Ralf Botzenhart (bass) as well as with their two new members Timm Schreiner (drums) and Richard Düe (keyboard) – achieving sold out concert venues and making an impact on new and old fans alike. They swiftly signed with Nuclear Blast sublabel Arising Empire. In 2018, the FARMER BOYS will make a full throttled return; taking to the stage again and releasing their new album »Born Again« – to make this year one of the most successful of their career.
The unique magic of this band is back – with their triumphant and all-embracing vocals, the crisp, accomplished guitar playing, the dramatic keyboards and the grooving drums. FARMER BOYS singer Matthias Sayer comments: “For us, this album is much more than a comeback: it is a path, our way, a mission and a destination at the same time, the past years in the distance are the key to this great new chapter. We look forward to seeing you!”
The FARMER BOYS 2018 appear as clearly matured songwriters, their music forms a balanced impression, the riffs and melodies flow into each other seamlessly, without losing any heaviness or getting too pop-y. So the real question is; how did we all survive so long without this band?
Beginning in the 90s, the band re-wrote international music history and even today, the FARMER BOYS can’t be pigeonholed. They present their explosive mix with a chunky and unique sound. The largest festivals, major labels, Vans Warped Tour through the USA, shows with RAMMSTEIN, DEFTONES and METALLICA… the first announcement expressing the return of the FARMER BOYS was followed by a tremendous response, which has blown the band away; “After a lot of hard work in the studio, the album »Born Again« is finally finished and we can not wait to play it live! Our shows will include new songs as well as all our old hits”, guitarist Alex smiles: Here comes the pain!
As a first impression of the new album, the band has released the music video of their song ‘You And Me’: https://youtu.be/y_VIfPByxiw
