Jennifer Rostock U.S.

Sad news today with the release of the music video to “Die guten alten Zeiten” – Jennifer Rostock are taking an indefinite hiatus. The band posted the video (I’ll post a link that works outside of Germany as soon as I can find one) along with the below message:

Dear ones,

as you’ve probably noticed, the past few days have been shaped by nostalgia and memories on our side. We’re looking back at wonderful shared times and it’s really everything except easy for us to write these here lines. Some of you have already guessed this when you first listened to this song on the album. After 10 years of non-stop Jennifer Rostock, we’re taking a break. We aren’t stopping. We’re all bubbling with ideas. Ideas that didn’t all pass in the JR framework. Ideas that you can’t just achieve on the side and in passing. We’re all going to keep making music, in different configurations. And besides, one thing is sure – at some point, we will see each other again as Jennifer Rostock.

Don’t worry yourselves: we’ve been a family for a decade by now and it’ll stay that way. There are either quarrels, drug withdrawals or unwanted pregnancies. It just takes some air to breathe so that we can devote ourselves to Project Rostock with full dedication in the future.

We’re grateful for each of you. Everyone who accompanied us on the most exciting journey of our lives up until this point. Whether you’ve been there for a few years – like many of you – or even since the beginning. Without you, our music would be nothing more than tones and words. You bring them to life. You share your stories that you connect with our music. You point out again and again that music is more than just music. You are always a part of us.

Out next tour will be our last for now. Come by to celebrate the old songs with us one last time. And to kick off THE GOOD OLD TIMES.

For a final (for the time being) “Zicke Zacke Zicke Zacke,”
your Rostocker.

Andie Band Update, Music Video, New Video, Worst Of Jennifer Rostock Comments Off on New Video Soon

Jennifer Rostock were in Usedom shooting a music video yesterday; Jennifer mentioned that they filmed at her old house, as well as an abandoned building where she and Joe had shot two music videos back when they were still Aerials. According to her, they’re only filming in places “where Joe and [she] have memories” this weekend, and they went to film at their old school.

Any ideas on which song it is?

Andie #wojr, Haarspray, Music Video, New Video, Single, Worst Of Jennifer Rostock Comments Off on New Single: “Haarspray”

A new single has been announced for Worst Of Jennifer Rostock – “Haarspray” – and it’ll be released this Friday (22 September). The announcement was made with what appears to be a video still with four lines of lyrics on it:

If you’re unable to read the text, it says (the English translation is below the German lyrics):

Der Fernseher taucht das Zimmer
In ein flimmerndes Blaulicht
Mein Finger auf dem Esstisch
Malt ein Herz in die Staubschicht

(The television immerses the room
In a glimmering blue light
My finger on the dining table
Draws a heart in the layer of dust)

Andie Album, Band Update, Worst Of Jennifer Rostock Comments Off on Worst Of Jennifer Rostock

The new album, Worst Of Jennifer Rostock, can now be pre-ordered from Amazon, JPC, EMP, and iTunes! The first three offer the regular digipack (the album and the instrumentals for the first ten tracks), as well as the limited edition box set – which includes the album, instrumentals, party hat, party horn, photo booklet, photo card, and t-shirt. If you live in the US, you’ll have to go through either Amazon.de or JPC, as #WOJR is not available in the States just yet.

The final four songs on the album were actually already available; Liebe BILDWähl die AfD, and Neider machen Leute (Version 2017) had all been released on Facebook over the past couple of years, and Keine macht den Profis was released to anyone who donated to Jennifer Rostock’s 2016 fundraiser.

The tracklist is as follows:

  1. Alles Cool (It’s All Cool)
  2. Flaschendrehen (Spin the Bottle)
  3. Schockverliebt (Love at First Glance)
  4. Dschungel (Jungle)
  5. Polarmeer (Polar Sea)
  6. Wenn ich dein Gesicht seh, denke ich an meine Faust (When I See Your Face, I Think of My Fist)
  7. Weltbilder (Pictures of the World/Worldviews)
  8. Haarspray (Hairspray)
  9. Schlaflos Pt.3 (Sleepless Pt.3)
  10. Die guten alten Zeiten (The Good Old Times)
  11. Liebe BILD (Dear BILD)
  12. Wähl die AfD (Vote for AfD)
  13. Neider machen Leute (Version 2017) (People Make Haters)
  14. Keine Macht den Profis (feat. Grossstadtgeflüster) (No Power to Pros)

Andie #wojr, Band Update, New Video Comments Off on #wojr

Only four more stops left during the 2017 festival summer for Jennifer Rostock – they played their final Genau in diesem Ton Open Air show this past week in Halle/Salle, Germany.

In other news: This video was posted on Jennifer Rostock’s Facebook page and Instagram; some people guess it’s a music video, some guess it’s a new album.

All that fans can be sure about is that it has to do with whatever the band had been recording in the studio earlier this year, since all of the posts during that time were tagged with #wojr, as well. (After all, Jennifer did mention some surprises as part of the band’s ten-year celebration!)

Looks like we’ll have to see what happens on 29 September!

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!
