They say the hardest way for a band is the way to their 2nd album and one might imagine that this way must have been even harder for a band like Frittenbude that experienced almost overnight success after the release of their debut "Nachtigall" nearly three years ago, an album jam-packed with hits like "Elektrofikkkke", "Hildegard" or "Pandabär" followed by endless touring and a request from Scooter to join them on tour as warm up. Which they denied afaik. Now their new album "Katzengold" is scheduled via Audiolith Records for may 28th and its for a sure good one, although it needs a bit of time to grow. Hits are not that obvious this time, Pop- and Indie-influences are more important, melodies as well, but still it's 100% trademark Frittenbude, the uncrowned kings of ElectroPunk vs. Rap. Most surprising and my personal favorite tune is additional vinyl bonus track, which I cannot name her coze there's no track info included in my whitelabel copy, but is a great love song anyway. You're recommended to get the 2xLP version just to don't miss this one.
