Extra Concert

Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

Our concert on 21.01.2017 in a very special location, the @Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, was sold out shortly after being on sale and the box office system unfortunatly was temporary unavailable. We feel honoured that so many of you want to see us play but we are also very much aware that a lot of you did not succeed to buy tickets and are now displeased about the situation.

As we want to give ALL of you the opportunity to join us at this exceptional venue, we are happy to announce that we agreed with promoter upon playing one more show on same day. The additional show will take place at 5 pm and the box office sale will start on 12 July 2016 at 11a.m.

We hope you can live with this solution and we see you ALL there!

Ticket Chaos

the run on tickets for our concert at Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg was so big that it was immediatly sold out and the box office sales system unfortunatly collapsed.
We are not involved in ticket sales but of course noticed that the whole process was very badly handled, so we want to apologize to everyone who tried in vain to receive a ticket. At the moment we are discussing with local promoter if there might be any solutions and want to express that we are very much interested to find some as the situations appears to us very unpleasant.

Lament Live

Einstürzende Neubauten are currently on tour performing LAMENT:

Lament - Einstürzende Neubauten

Lament

LAMENT the new album by Einstürzende Neubauten is released Friday 07 November 2014 on BMG Records.

LAMENT should be heard as a studio reconstruction of a work primarily designed to be performed live, rather than an official new Einstürzende Neubauten LP proper.

In truth, the piece can only be fully realised, as well as best experienced, in its physical embodiment, performed on or by founding member Andrew Unruh’s gigantic instruments and noise generating devices that visually evoke the horrors the work describes or embeds in the sounds they conjure from the filth and terror of the industrialised 20th century world at war with itself.

But in fulfilling what at first appears to be a surprise commission for such a formidable longtime outsider group, Einstürzende Neubauten transformed the earthy, idiosyncratic contents they mined from academic, state, music hall and internet archives with the help of their two researchers into a richly complex cycle of original and cover songs and performance pieces.

The music often originated in LAMENT’s storytelling needs, be it in terms of sounds used or compositions structured along First World War flow charts or scored from calendars of the involvement of the 20 plus countries embroiled in it.

The way LAMENT plays off pre-existing and composed materials, pieces clipped together from historical records next to direct cover interpretations, or indeed their Frankenstein like construction of an ur-anthem/national hymn delivers a differently angled history of the war.

Finally, LAMENT opens Bargeld’s case that the First World War never ended - the interwar and postwar periods being essentially pauses for breath as the great military powers carry on their conflict at some remove in faraway wars fought by proxy.
