HAPPY RELEASE DAY!
DOUBLE CRUSH
SYNDROME are releasing their new album »Death To Pop«! A clear statement to all washouts and an ode to rock! To celebrate the new record the band also released the music video for ‘Cocaine Lips’!

Buy and/or stream »Death To Pop« here: https://DoubleCrushSyndrome.lnk.to/DeathToPop
Watch the music video for ‘Cocaine Lips’ here: https://youtu.be/39zUQLphKhY

Andy Brings (vocals): “Cocaine Lips” has nothing to do with drugs, but everything with addictive lips and the associated women. It’s a love song. Musically, it’s a bow to the highly acclaimed “Powerpop” genre, and for me it’s the best song on “Death To Pop,” on par with everyone else. Important: the band is not visible in the video, the model is just too pretty to devaluate the clip. There are also other times. Have fun with it!”

DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME – »Death To Pop«

Long story short: DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME are going to save Rock´n´Roll! That´s right: ´are going to´! Not `want`! If a band is able to balance that easily between yellow press and metal press, and neither at metal festival nor on  mainstream television loses so much as an ounce of credibility that took decades to build, you have to ask yourself: „Gee, who else could save it but them?!“

Fronted by singer and guitarist Andy Brings, a true enfant terrible (`Celebrity Shopping Queen`) and successful filmmaker (`Full Circle – Last Exit Rock´n´Roll`) DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME present their second album, after their debut »Die For Rock´n´Roll« entered the German album charts on position 48 in 2017, and laid the foundation for Rock´n´Roll world domination.

Why is this band different? What makes them stand out and impossible to fully comprehend?
Andy Brings: „We are not here, to fulfill some expectations, or  give the people the usual clichés that have been tried and tested in Rock and Metal for the umpteenth time. We are not influenced by  Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath and don´t consider ourselves to be great musicians. We are deeply rooted in Punk and Metal, but we try to write the perfect pop song with our own means.“

The perfect pop song? According to the album´s title pop must die, so what´s the deal here?
Brings: „`Death To Pop` is a great statement, and by that we want to express, that we reject everything which is not truthful and therefore cannot survive. Especially Metal has become terribly boring and predictable, and is spoonfeeding the listener the same ready-made stuff over and over, and became worse pop than pop itself. I´d rather wish death upon bad metal than bad pop, because I don´t give a damn about bad pop. rock and it´s values on the other hand are very near and dear to our hearts.“

And those values are quite obvious on »Death To Pop«: love in all its facettes (‚Whore’, ‚Cocaine Lips’), living a self-determined life, rejection of conformity (‚We Cannot Be Ruled’, ‚Death To Pop’), and the desire for freedom and adventure (‚Tonight’, ‚Souls To Sell’).
Like the debut album `Death To Pop` was produced by Andy Brings, but this time he handed over the reigns to his friend, mentor and legendary producer Uwe Hoffmann. On Spain´s Costa Blanca and in the band´s home in the infamous Ruhr area of Germany an album came to life which Hoffmann regards as „one of the best albums I have ever been involved with“. Given his body of work consisting of countless megahits (DIE ÄRZTE, SPORTSFREUNDE STILLER, TERRORGRUPPE etc.) that says a lot. Andy Brings: „Uwe is the ultimate king for me, I look up to him unconditionally. His word is the law to me. Working with him is the biggest possible artistic fulfillment for me and we are a great team. That goes for my bandmates Slick Prolidol (bass, vocals) and our new old drummer Markus Herzog as well.“

The sound on »Death To Pop« is more mature than before, e.g. by adding female backing singers, so the true grandeur of these minipunkrockmusicals that rarely break the 3 ½ minute barrier can finally unfold. With this bigger line-up DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME wants to go on tour in 2020.
Brings: „We don´t use backing tracks, what you see is what you hear, as a trio or with six people on stage. If we want to play with the DCS BIG BAND we will do it. Our own joy and energy has always been our strongest weapon, besides the songs. We are fully aware that we polarize, but we don´t care. It comes with the territory. Fun fact: everytime a hater actually sees us their knees get weak.“

This band knows no boundaries and/or restrictions, and will definately bring back fun and action into Rock´n´Roll, just when you thought it was safe again.

»Death To Pop«  will be released via Arising Empire on the 25th of October 2019.

DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME – The Return of Rock n´ Roll!

When acclaimed underground talent gets signed by a big player, eyebrows will be raised and questions will be asked.

So, Andy Brings, why are you taking your band, who proclaimed its independence like a mantra, and earned its reputation as a DIY sensation by sailing under jolly roger, to the luxury liner Arising Empire? „Because the right band has found the right company, it´s the perfect gathering of Rock n´Roll maniacs. It feels 100% right! We don´t have to make any compromises whatsoever. On the contrary, they want us to  be different from the rest and remain true to ourselves at the same time!“

And different is what DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME were, when they surfaced in 2013, fronted by singer and guitarplayer Andy Brings (ex-SODOM, ex- THE TRACEELORDS). Without a label or any kind of promotion, but armed with a self-pressed CD in a cardboard sleeve, they began to conquer the stages in and outside of Germany, starting a true Rock n´ Roll rampage. „We go out with the determination to give the people the best rockshow possible! We literally force them to have a good time!“ The band´s energy spread like wildfire, and so they spent the following 3 years on the road supporting acts like Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW), HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, DORO, J.B.O., OHRENFEINDT, W.A.S.P., LOUDNESS and playing countless shows on their own, each and everyone like it would be their last!

Now, what can we expect from the official debut album? „We see ourselves in the tradition of bands like Kiss, Ramones, Skid Row, Motörhead, Mötley Crüe, without even trying to sound like them.”

“It´s our version of Rock n´ Roll, naturally with a huge punk influence in the instrumentation, strong chorusses with an undeniable pop factor, and the power to destroy a small town. One small town per song that is !“ says Brings, without even the slightest indication of a smile. Is the band lacking a sense of humor? „Not at all, DCS is very tongue-in-cheek, and there´s a certain degree of anarchy happening on stage. But we are not a funny band per se, we take what we do very seriously! Still, everybody is supposed to have a good time, on stage and in the audience!“

The spectrum of songs reaches from powerful bombshells such as the band´s anthems ´Die For Rock N´Roll´ and ´Gimme Everything´ to more sophisticated wrecking balls such as ´Can´t You Be Like Everyone Else´ and ´Revolution´ and the most „expensive“ tune ´Ón Top Of Mount Whateverest´. Expensive? Andy Brings: „´On Top…´ stands out because the arrangement is a little more elaborate, with some synthezizer effects here and there, that let it shine a little brighter. We are very proud of that song!“ says, who has also produced and mixed the album.

And the lyrics? Does DCS have anything to say? „We are definately against it! We sometimes forget what it is that we are against in particular, but with a certain amount of punk anger inside you it doesn´t really matter! Just don´t take shit from anybody! But there´s no  political or ideological superstructure in what we do! Our interpretation of Punkrock is not wearing the politically correct brand of streetwear and shouting pseudo-intellectual slogans into the atmosphere. We dress up and want to entertain! Some songs celebrate love, some condemn it. What all songs have in common is never-ending hope and the will to live on your own terms, to love, laugh and cry, with a firm belief that everything will turn out fine. Be strong! Be happy!“

All systems are go, Mr. Brings?

„The enthusiasm of our new partner Nuclear Blast/Arising Empire is a kick in the butt we did not really need, but it´s definately nice to feel the support. Our powerswitch only has a „Full Speed“ and  an „Off“ position, there´s no in-between. We are not scared of anything or anybody, just bring it on! We die for Rock n´ Roll!“

But we are not a funny band per se, we take what we do very seriously! Still, everybody is supposed to have a good time, on stage and in the audience!“

The spectrum of songs reaches from powerful bombshells such as the band´s anthems ´Die For Rock N´Roll´ and ´Gimme Everything´ to more sophisticated wrecking balls such as ´Can´t You Be Like Everyone Else´ and ´Revolution´ and the most „expensive“ tune ´Ón Top Of Mount Whateverest´. Expensive? Andy Brings: „´On Top…´ stands out because the arrangement is a little more elaborate, with some synthezizer effects here and there, that let it shine a little brighter. We are very proud of that song!“ says, who has also produced and mixed the album.

And the lyrics? Does DCS have anything to say? „We are definately against it! We sometimes forget what it is that we are against in particular, but with a certain amount of punk anger inside you it doesn´t really matter! Just don´t take shit from anybody! But there´s no  political or ideological superstructure in what we do! Our interpretation of Punkrock is not wearing the politically correct brand of streetwear and shouting pseudo-intellectual slogans into the atmosphere. We dress up and want to entertain! Some songs celebrate love, some condemn it. What all songs have in common is never-ending hope and the will to live on your own terms, to love, laugh and cry, with a firm belief that everything will turn out fine. Be strong! Be happy!“

All systems are go, Mr. Brings?

„The enthusiasm of our new partner Nuclear Blast/Arising Empire is a kick in the butt we did not really need, but it´s definately nice to feel the support. Our powerswitch only has a „Full Speed“ and  an „Off“ position, there´s no in-between. We are not scared of anything or anybody, just bring it on! We die for Rock n´ Roll!“

DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME will play at ZDF Fernsehgarten on August 18th 2019

The “strayed” rockers return to the crime scene – DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME will play at ZDF Fernsehgarten!

It’s THE rock’n roll summer tale of 2019; on the 23rd of June, three allegedly tough guys didn’t want to fit into the usual ZDF Fernsehgarten scene that attracts millions of viewers every week; but instead stood out like a sore thumb despite their black cloth.
The internet flashed over with speculations of how these three rockers covered in tattoos ended up on the Mainzer Lerchenberg. A broken navigation device? Got lost? A wrong turn on their way to the Rammstein concert?

Bild Online solved the puzzle and revealed that this was a private trip by DOUBLE CRUSH SYDNROME (latest album “Die For Rock´n´Roll“, 2017 Top 50 in the German album charts) from the Ruhr area. Vocalist Andy Brings (latest movie: “FULL CIRCLE – Last Exit Rock´n´Roll“) persuaded his band mate Slick Prolidol and their roadie Antionio Scafidi to take a slight detour to the hit-show on the way back home from their concert the day before, due to his guilty pleasure; the schlager music of the 70s and 80s which was the topic of this Sunday’s show. Brings: “I don’t want to hide the fact that the good old schlager music is part of my DNA as well as heavy metal and punk rock music. We had a lot of fun and artists like Andy Borg are absolutely great. For me there is no chiraptophobia. Quite the opposite!”

Brings‘ spontaneous participation at the Schlager quiz with moderator Andrea Kiewel literally made the cut and now the sensation is perfected: On the 18th of August DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME will perform a secret song at the Fernsehgarten show. The band is currently producing the song with living producer legend Uwe Hoffmann (DIE ÄRZTE, SPORTSFREUNDE STILLER) in his Studio in Costa Blanca, Spain.

Andy Brings: “We’re totally shocked! What an honor! We are very happy to perform at this show and we will bring something special with us for this evening. We can’t help but stepping the pedal to the metal. On or off, there’s nothing in between and that’s what we always do: TURN IT UP!”
The band isn’t scared of criticism from their own fans or from the metal community. Brings says: “We always and only do what we want to do. You can’t force us at all. Everything we deliver comes from our hearts. If we want to do something, nothing is impossible. We don’t care about the opinions of narrow minded and deadlocked people. Everyone may see and like us. Rock n’ roll is for everybody and this is a message we like to spread. The reactions on our spontaneous visit at the Fernsehgarten show were pretty positive. We love what we do and we’re really looking forward to our performance. We’ll bring back the action into rock!”

Time has come for a friendly kick in the ass. Even if this rock n’ roll summer dream will find an early happy end on the 18th of August it will soon continue for sure. The world is in need for new rock stars!

DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME – The Return of Rock n´ Roll!

When acclaimed underground talent gets signed by a big player, eyebrows will be raised and questions will be asked.

So, Andy Brings, why are you taking your band, who proclaimed its independence like a mantra, and earned its reputation as a DIY sensation by sailing under jolly roger, to the luxury liner Arising Empire? „Because the right band has found the right company, it´s the perfect gathering of Rock n´Roll maniacs. It feels 100% right! We don´t have to make any compromises whatsoever. On the contrary, they want us to  be different from the rest and remain true to ourselves at the same time!“

And different is what DOUBLE CRUSH SYNDROME were, when they surfaced in 2013, fronted by singer and guitarplayer Andy Brings (ex-SODOM, ex- THE TRACEELORDS). Without a label or any kind of promotion, but armed with a self-pressed CD in a cardboard sleeve, they began to conquer the stages in and outside of Germany, starting a true Rock n´ Roll rampage. „We go out with the determination to give the people the best rockshow possible! We literally force them to have a good time!“ The band´s energy spread like wildfire, and so they spent the following 3 years on the road supporting acts like Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW), HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, DORO, J.B.O., OHRENFEINDT, W.A.S.P., LOUDNESS and playing countless shows on their own, each and everyone like it would be their last!

Now, what can we expect from the official debut album? „We see ourselves in the tradition of bands like Kiss, Ramones, Skid Row, Motörhead, Mötley Crüe, without even trying to sound like them.”

“It´s our version of Rock n´ Roll, naturally with a huge punk influence in the instrumentation, strong chorusses with an undeniable pop factor, and the power to destroy a small town. One small town per song that is !“ says Brings, without even the slightest indication of a smile. Is the band lacking a sense of humor? „Not at all, DCS is very tongue-in-cheek, and there´s a certain degree of anarchy happening on stage. But we are not a funny band per se, we take what we do very seriously! Still, everybody is supposed to have a good time, on stage and in the audience!“

The spectrum of songs reaches from powerful bombshells such as the band´s anthems ´Die For Rock N´Roll´ and ´Gimme Everything´ to more sophisticated wrecking balls such as ´Can´t You Be Like Everyone Else´ and ´Revolution´ and the most „expensive“ tune ´Ón Top Of Mount Whateverest´. Expensive? Andy Brings: „´On Top…´ stands out because the arrangement is a little more elaborate, with some synthezizer effects here and there, that let it shine a little brighter. We are very proud of that song!“ says, who has also produced and mixed the album.

And the lyrics? Does DCS have anything to say? „We are definately against it! We sometimes forget what it is that we are against in particular, but with a certain amount of punk anger inside you it doesn´t really matter! Just don´t take shit from anybody! But there´s no  political or ideological superstructure in what we do!

Some songs celebrate love, some condemn it. What all songs have in common is never-ending hope and the will to live on your own terms, to love, laugh and cry, with a firm belief that everything will turn out fine. Be strong! Be happy!“

‘FULL CIRCLE – Last Exit Rock´n´Roll’

There are times in life where words and music are not enough. Dreams, hopes and desires are unbelievably visual things, and that’s why there will be the release of ‘FULL CIRCLE – Last Exit Rock’n’Roll’! Based on his story, Andy Brings and his team want to show what drives people who have a dream and do everything in their power to make it happen.
How do you deal with it when a dream suddenly turns into a nightmare, and from where do you get the strength to turn everything around again, to make your life “complete”, to bring it to its true purpose and give it its meaning. No matter what the individual small or big goal is. No matter how long it takes.
Brings‘ life was and is still like that. Love, passion, struggles, setbacks, lifeblood, success, defeats, fun and tears. But his dream of rock’n’roll came true. From starting out as a fan boy to touring with their heroes SKID ROW, without which Andy Brings would not exist. 30 years and more, never losing sight of the goal. Everything is possible, Brings is the living proof!
His story is your story. What are your dreams? Are you looking for your inner truth? Are you ready to give anything for it?
The film is an inspiration and an affirming force. Whatever you need. Don‘t let others change you. Go your way, no matter what they say. You will see: you are not alone!
The movie also features Brings‘ friends and companions like the heavy metal queen Doro Pesch, all members of SKID ROW, the actress Liz Baffoe (Lindenstraße), SODOM-singer Tom Angelripper, Marcus “The Duke” Sauk u.vm.
