The Hirsch Effekt will release their second album HOLON : ANAMNESIS on 31th of august, 2012. The release tour is set from 17th - 29th september.The tour will take the band to Marburg, Reutlingen, Nürnberg, Ludwigshafen, Frankfurt/Main, Munich, Freiburg, Karlsruhe, Cologne, Oberhausen, Leipzig and of course to Berlin. The last third of the tour (from Cologne to Berlin) will include the partaking and attendance of Michael Vogelmann. His task is to capture our ups and downs, our mourning and dancing, the yelling and the howling, the screaming and the shouting and all the beauty and ugliness of a tour you manage almost all by yourself. See, we have no driver...or a tour manager (or a hotel or whatever...). And he'll capture some live footage on stage! Some of the material will be underlayed by a live recording session, which is going to take place on september 29th in the Lala-Studios, in Leipzig.
We want to rejoice ourselves and the people who come to our concerts and support us. The project will turn out a great memento for us and at the same time, a sort of behind-the-scenes-thing for our fans and friends.
We will release the movie on DVD-R: autographed in a hand-painted cardboard-slipcase (by our bassist Ilja). So each copy is unique! You will get access to this edition only here as a reward if you support us with 12 €.
We invested a lot of money into the studio costs of our upcoming album HOLON : ANAMNESIS and are simply blank and missing the money. We can't and don't want to make money with the movie so we're also not able to refinance it. But if every one gives a small support to this project we will be able to bring it to life!
We will rent some video equipment (mainly cameras...) for 5 days and pay Michael's train ticket to Cologne and back home. Also, we will make it possible for him to do the cutting under professional circumstances.
The people behind this are the band members of The Hirsch Effekt, Michael Vogelmann and we hope....you!
