The Living End release Wunderbar
It’s been a mammoth week for one of Australia’s most loved and enduring bands. Today The Living End released their eighth studio album WUNDERBAR.
Recorded over a six week period in Berlin during an inspired recording session with producer Tobias Kuhn, the album contains eleven blistering tracks that the band are extremely proud of. There’s a contagious new energy around these songs and The Living End… and you can feel it.
WUNDERBAR is a portrait of the bandas they are in 2018: fiercely proficient, proudly rebellious, and emotionally resonant.
The first taste of WUNDERBAR came in the form of electric single ‘Don’t Lose It’. The accompanying video featured an all-star cast of Australian musicians and media personalities (get a refresher HERE).
Next we heard the raw and stripped album cut ‘Amsterdam’ which adds a different colour/texture to the album and stands out immediately.
Today, with the album release – The Living End dropped a new single and video for the anthemic ‘Otherside’.
Front man Chris Cheney explains the song further..
“The guitar riff was something we kicked around in Melbourne but the bulk of the song was written in Berlin. Once we wrote the chorus It was immediately a standout track on the record. The message of Otherside is simple, the grass isn’t greener. Walk your own path, don’t compare and don’t waste precious time wishing you had more. ”
The Living End are returning to New Zealand in 2019 with a show at The Powerstation on Wednesday February 6 (Waitangi Day). Tickets – ticketmaster.co.nz
