Jennifer Rostock will go on a Genau in Diesem Ton Open-Air tour in 2017! Seven dates have already been announced, and more will hopefully come in the next few months.
The seven shows already known:
- June 09: Jahnsportforum, Neubrandenburg, Germany
- June 17: Porta Hoch 3, Trier, Germany
- June 18: Kulturzelt, Wolfhagen, Germany
- June 24: Junge Garde, Dresden, Germany
- July 07: Zitadelle, Mainz, Germany
- July 22: Piazza, Regensburg, Germany
- August 12: Freilichtbühne Peißnitz, Halle (Salle), Germany
Jennifer Rostock have also been added to the line-ups for Hurricane, Southside, and Chiemsee Summer festivals for 2017; exact performance dates are still yet to be released.
Also, for one it’s nearly a month late, only a few days for the other two, but happy belated birthday to keyboardist, Joe; drummer, Chris; and lead singer, Jennifer!
Jennifer Rostock are back with another Warm Feet for All donation campaign, this time with fellow band Grossstadtgeflüster. In return for a donation of any amount, you’ll get a code to download the single “Keine Macht den Profis” (“No Power to Pros”), which is a collaboration between both bands. The money raised will go towards helping the homeless in Berlin, as it did last year.

Sorry for the lack of updates – I’ve been busy with school and personal issues. I won’t get into it any further because it’s entirely my own fault.
Genau in diesem Ton was released nearly two months ago, reaching #2 in the German charts, #4 in the Austrian charts, and #31 in the Swiss charts; it is still hanging in there in the German and Austrian charts. All of the lyrics (as far as I could read the lyric booklet) have been posted, as well as the translations.
And even better: A new music video and single will be released on Friday, October 28: ‘Hengstin!’
Tomorrow is the day Genau in diesem Ton is finally released!
The Stressen auf Rädern club tour is already on its way to stop #3 – Berlin – after having begun on Tuesday. Some people have noticed a change in the band’s line-up from the two shows that were already played, but it was soon explained: The reason Elmar is on guitar for the shows (he’s usually backstage) is because our dear Alex is going to be a father soon! On this note: Congratulations, Alex!
In other news related to the tour, the setlist includes seven songs from the new album, three of which haven’t already been posted or played live before. It was posted on Instagram as one of those short-term videos:
- Irgendwas ist immer
- Der Kapitän
- Silikon gegen Sexismus
- Wir sind alle nicht von hier
- Uns gehört die Nacht
- Ein Schmerz und eine Kehle
- I Love You, but I’ve Chosen Dispo
- Wir waren hier
- Es war nicht alles schlecht
There is officially just under a week until the new album Genau in diesem Ton is released! Depending on where you are when this gets posted, there’s either five days or six days (the latter is how long it will be for me).
Since the last update, two new videos have been posted by the band, and one is on its way: The first video is the lyric video to ‘Wir Sind Alle Nicht von Hier‘ with help from Silan Bekjarov and To Pedro, uploaded August 25. Earlier this week, on the 30th, a video of Jennifer and Joe performing a short song, ‘Wähl die AfD‘ (‘Vote for AfD’) was posted on Facebook; the song isn’t actually asking people to vote for the political party in an upcoming election, but rather gives reasons why people should not vote for them. Finally, the new music video for ‘Wir Waren Hier‘ will be posted sometime this weekend.
The video for ‘Wähl die AfD‘ has actually garnered a huge, negative response from AfD supporters, even resulting in Jennifer getting a threatening letter sent to her home address. It’s being described as another “shitstorm” reminiscent of the Böhse Onkelz/Frei.Wild issue a few years ago, in which Jennifer Rostock posted on Facebook that they do not want to see people wearing t-shirts at their concerts that have either of the two bands’ names on them, as both were known to have right-wing lyrics in their songs.
Also, I apologize for the lack of updates the past few weeks. I’ve been dealing with the loss of one of my pets, and had also gone on a week-long vacation with sucky Internet.
It’s official: The Stressen auf Rädern club tour planned for September 2016 is sold out, and there have already been reports of scams disguised as tickets that included VIP meet-and-greet passes. According to Jennifer, the band doesn’t believe in charging extra money for fans to be able to get to know them a bit, which is why they have autograph sessions whenever possible after a show and sometimes invite a fan or two to have a M&G.
However, the Genau in diesem Ton tour planned for early next year is already on pre-sale right now, and will go on general sale tomorrow. Speaking of which, a new music video is planned for release tomorrow, as well: ‘Uns Gehört die Nacht‘!
The tickets for Jennifer Rostock’s upcoming Stressen auf Rädern tour went on exclusive pre-sale yesterday, with the regular sale beginning tomorrow, but it appears that every concert has already sold out except for the show at Exil, Zurich, Switzerland, on September 15. While only the shows for September 08 and 11 (Berlin and Leipzig, respectively) are shown as sold out on Eventim.de, the others are listed as ‘Not available at this time’ and no tickets are available for purchase.
However, don’t fret – a new tour will begin in Ulm on January 27 and last until February 25, with the last show in Rostock. Tickets will go on sale sometime next week. All of the stops can be found on the Dates page.
The complete list of venues for the seven dates of the Stressen auf Rädern club tour have been announced. The exclusive pre-sale on Eventim.de begins on Wednesday, August 03, and the general pre-sale begins on Friday, August 05.
Dates and venues:
- September 05: Knust, Hamburg, Germany
- September 07: Club Bahnhof Ehrenfeld, Cologne, Germany
- September 08: SO 36, Berlin, Germany

- A three-CD set that includes the new album itself, instrumentals, and remixes
- An MP3 version of the new album itself, instrumentals, and remixes
- A limited edition fanbox that includes the three-CD set, a gymbag, a poster, an autograph, pins, stickers, and patches

Jennifer Rostock sent out an image through their WhatsApp with the caption, “Tomorrow, kids, there might be something!” The image was a simple image of a street and a building flipped upside down with the words “WER SEINE JUGEND NICHT VERSCHWENDET HAT SIE SCHON VERPASST” – meaning “WHOEVER DOESN’T WASTE THEIR CHILDHOOD HAS MISSED IT.” It’s actually a lyric from one of the upcoming album’s songs, ‘Uns Gehört die Nacht‘ (‘The Night Belongs to Us‘).
Most likely, the song is going to be available on Spotify and iTunes tomorrow for those living in Europe.

In the past couple of days, I’ve added a six new article translations and two sets of lyrics: ‘Du Willst Mir an die Wäsche (Feat. Sido)’ (EN / DE) and ‘Irgendwas ist Immer’ (EN / DE). I’ll be working on more articles and interviews in the next few days; I have a bunch of links in my browser favorites to work on.
