Andie Band Member Update, Band Update, Festival Summer 2017, Genau in diesem Ton, Tour 2017 Comments Off on Open Airs, Open Airs! Festivals, Festivals!

Just 18 days until the start of Jennifer Rostock’s Genau in diesem Ton Open Air tour and 25 days until the start of their festival summer – time is flying! Along with their fifth appearance at both Hurricane Festival and Southside Festival, Jennifer Rostock will be playing their first show at both Love Music Festival and Rock im Ring Festival – which will also be their first concert in Italy, if I’m not mistaken. It was also announced in Jennifer’s Instagram story today that Elmar will be joining the band for the open airs and festivals, again taking over guitar for Alex, who is still on his year-long parental leave.

In addition to all of this, Jennifer stated in an earlier Instagram story that the band is hitting the studio on Wednesday, May 24, for something to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Jennifer Rostock. What exactly this will bring, will probably remain a secret for a long while. Start getting excited!

Andie Band Update, Site Update Comments Off on Warme Füße 2016 Ended

Jennifer Rostock’s Warm Feet for All 2016 campaign has come to an end, with a total of 10,001€ donated! You can also now download the song ‘Keine Macht den Profis’ even if you didn’t donate: Simply go to this link and enter the code GH67yfTjLL for your download of the single.

In site-related news, I’m working on reorganizing the photo gallery by moving the ‘Live’ photos and ‘Other’ into categories based on the event, and then each album title will just contain the photographer or source of the images. I’ve already gotten through the live photos, and just have to do the others now.

Andie Band Member Birthday, Genau in diesem Ton, Tour 2017 Comments Off on Tour Line-Up Change

It was announced today that Elmar will be playing guitar for Jennifer Rostock again, this time on the upcoming Genau in diesem Ton tour. The reason for this is that Alex has decided to extend his parental leave. (Alex became a father last year while the band was on the Stressen auf Rädern tour.)

Congratulations again, Alex!

Andie Genau in diesem Ton, Music Video, New Video, Video Comments Off on New Video: Neider Machen Leute (2017)

Jennifer Rostock released a new video on Facebook today, titled “Neider machen Leute (2017 Version).” Their caption for it is,

Surprise!
We should actually be rehearsing for the tour. But something was preying on our minds, so we want to let it out for a bit.
Old song, new lyrics. On with it!

These new lyrics focus on the “shitstorms” from the past year, and the full set of lyrics and the translation are already up on the respective pages.

Andie Genau in diesem Ton, Video Comments Off on MoreMusic Top 100 Songs of 2016

Jennifer Rostock have reached the Top 100 Songs of the Year 2016, or at least the list complied by MoreMusic. However, it isn’t just one song that reached their charts – it’s four of the singles from Genau in diesem Ton! “Wir waren hier” (#100), “Uns gehört die Nacht” (#42), “Irgendwas ist immer” (#24), and “Hengstin” (#4) all made it into the countdown.

Also, I honestly do not remember ordering anything, but I received a copy of the September-October issue of Volume in the mail last week, and there was a short “Album Check” for Genau in diesem Ton; I scanned and uploaded it to the gallery already.

“JRo have something to say and find exactly the right tone: Life is celebrated in hedonistic hymns, unquestioned in honest self-reflection and carved into pieces. Consumer craziness, racism or sexism are outplayed, just to open a beer the next minute, grinning, and to lunge euphoric into the night. Cheers!”
