Andie Best Of Tour 2018, Gallery Update, Site Update Comments Off on That’s What’s Left from the Good Old Time

Just four shows left for Jennifer Rostock in the Best Of Tour – one more in Leipzig followed by the three in Berlin – before the band take their hiatus. Fourteen of the twenty-one dates of the tour sold out – resulting in a 7,000-person audience in Hamburg, the largest for any of the band’s concerts to date!

I’m working on getting photos from the tour uploaded to the gallery, as well as any other photos I’ve managed to download since the last upload day.

Just three and a half more weeks until the final Jennifer Rostock tour begins in Linz, Austria. Eight shows are now sold out, with three additional shows to give fans another chance to see them. It also appears that Elmar will be joining the band onstage this year.

In other news, Jennifer Rostock announced today that they will be releasing covers of their songs by bands they’ve grown close to in celebration of their tenth year together. The first song, “Nichts tät ich lieber,” will be out tomorrow, but the artist has yet to be revealed. (Each band that covers a song will feature a special “Best of Jennifer Rostock” jacket before passing it along to the next artist.)

Andie Band Update, Best Of Tour 2018, Die guten alten Zeiten, Music Video, New Video Comments Off on The Good Old Times

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?
