ELECTRO BABY call it quits after 15 years... read the full statement here:
IT'S A SONIC ROADTRIP, BABY!
...should have always been the title of the ELECTRO BABY biography. But we are writing the last chapter now before we will close the book. We never wanted to be one of these bands which missed their last exit or became their own cover band. 15 years is a goddamn long time and we are also goddamn proud where we got with this band. We proudly look back on 6 albums - every one of each different than its predecessor. But we feel that we have said everything musically what we could say with ELECTRO BABY.
People change in such a long period of time. A lot happens in your life outside of ELECTRO BABY, something that characterizes you, changes your direction or main focus. Musical preferences change. You move into different directions.
There is no ill feeling between us, no airing dirty laundry. We split as friends with the highest respect for each other - as musicians and as human beings. Of course we do this decision with a heavy heart because we gave everything for this band for 15 years. But everyone of us came to this conclusion independently from each other. We had an amazing ride together. We’ d like to see anyone elso do that! We experienced a lot of funny things together, did insane stuffs, got to know awesome bands - some of them are really close friends now. These memories are priceless and they will always have a place in our hearts. But now the time has come that we take different paths. But no worries, everyone of us will continue as a part of the music scene.
We want to thank our two former members from the bottom of our hearts - without them this roadtrip would 'nt be possible:
Robmaster Flash - forming member, Riffmachine; Thank you for 11 years of full throttle
The Neighbour - you made us open new doors and broadened our spectrum. Thank you for your countless effort on "Speye"
But still the last curtain didn't fall. We don't say goodbye in silence. We want to go out with a big bang.
You can still see us together with the amazing WHEN TREES LEAVE WOLVES:
04.11. Soundcheck One - Waldbronn
05.11. Hexenhaus - Ulm
We are really looking forward to see you all again. Come and party (hard) with us till we say for the last time:
Thank You - and Good Night!
We want that you think of us with a smile on your face while saying:
ELECTRO BABY - that was one hell of a band!
El, Kim, Olli & Drumgod
