Album “Light Is The New Black
Release date: 16.03.2012
After the successful debut album “Black Space Riders”, the space trip is going to continue into the second round with an official new team. Brainstorm records, Rough Trade and the touring agent X-WHY-Z have concluded a partnership deal to heavily support the BLACK SPACE RIDERS. The band's second album “Light Is The New Black” will be released in Germany, Austria and Switzerland as digi-pack CD and deluxe vinyl double album on 16 March 2012.
After the in rock and metal (also international) circles critically acclaimed debut, the Riders will present their expansion of musical ideas in their new release. The musical drawers of Progressive/Stoner/Space/Doom barely do justice to what's happening on the new album.

They're young, they're wild, they're hungry! The Stories gallop through Germany's rock scene kicking up a lot of dust. Just 19 years old and only together for two years, they have already cut heads with many seasoned bands.
Kick-off started already in 2005 with the first EP “Minutes of Animation”. Numerous indie radio stations jumped at the high-energy mix, somewhere between Refused, Beatsteaks and The Hives. Extensive airplay catapulted THE STORIES onto stage – where the four dudes around eccentric frontman Vincent Jetset feel completely at home. The bigger – the better! Good enough for the extroverted showman to go on a rampage and showcase the energetic alternative rock tunes with full physical vigor.
THE FREUDIAN SLIP
Release: 29. April of 2011
The Freudian Slip is a duo from Denmark dedicated to Indie Rock. Noah Rosanes (guitar/vocals) and Mikkel Benn (drums) are among the most extraordinary artists in Scandinavia. As a duo they forge ahead on stage and on recordings like a four-piece band. Loud independent rock with fat guitar sounds and driving beats.
The Freudian Slip were founded 2006 with the idea of turning the music biz upside down. They run against the mill musically as well as business-wise. Instead of finding a local record company, they have simply set up their own. Success proved them right! The result: good CD and download sales, numerous shows and airplay on Danish radio stations.
Release: 29. January of 2011
After being founded in 2004, several local gigs and a self-produced demo, GEIST kicked into gear across the nation in 2004. Appealing to users of internet portals and live audiences (among others the Alive Festival and the Kölner Ringfest), GEIST has continually expanded its fanbase. The attention of radio stations, newspapers, magazines and Internet broadcasters – even in the US – was drawn to the band and resulted in contributions to numerous compilations.
The album “Für alle Zeit” (Danse Macabre Records/Alive, released 30.03.2007) was a giant step into the public eye. The video to the single “Wer, wenn nicht ich” was called up thousands of times. Incredible media attention with high critical acclaim across genres went hand in hand with an extensive German tour in 2007/8 (Bochum Total, Popkom, etc.), which caused great attention and convinced audiences of the prowess of the band. In 2008 GEIST published an unplugged EP, while continuing their touring schedule. Worldwide feedback does not cease.
After a long and intense song-writing and production process, the new release “Feuerengel” (Fatianol Records/Rough Trade, released 28.01.2011), eagerly awaited by the public and media alike, hit the public in January 2011. A nation-wide tour and festival booking in summer lay the ground for the band's next step. How far they will go is in the hands of the fans.
