STRAIGHT OUTTA: Germany (Tenside)

If you made it out to the Killswitch Engage tour at the end of 2019 then hopefully you got their early to see the brutal riffs of Tenside kicking off proceedings. The German band are excited to be releasing their brand new record ‘Glamour & Gloom’ which promises to carry on where ‘Convergence’ finished back in 2017.

Tenside have helped us out by introducing us to some of the best German bands that may have slipped under our radar.


For the past 25 years one of the most important bands in Germany within the rock and metal scene. Countless good records! Chris also co-produced our records ‘Convergence’ and our forthcoming record ‘Glamour & Gloom’.


The metalcore titans from Germany. Super cool dudes with lots of great songs. If you are into Killswitch Engage type of style and sound you have to check them out.


Germany’s answer to Jimmy Eat World. Definitely a breath of fresh air within the Munich pop-punk and alternative scene! We are so looking forward to their new album ‘Perceptions’ which will see the light of day on May 8th 2020.


Another Munich band which we all admire. Their work ethics and live performances speak for themselves.
If you are into Royal Republic, Danko Jones, The Subways and Billy Talent you should definitely keep your eyes peeled!


These guys just released a real banger record and toured a lot with Imminence and Griever recently. Definitely a band that will be around for a while! Go spin their new album ‘Solarray’ and get into it.

Tenside‘s new album, ‘Glamour & Gloom’, is scheduled for release on March 20th, via IVORYTOWER RECORDS/EDEL.

You can physically pre-order the album and bundles online from the band’s official store (here) and Amazon (here). Streams and downloads are available from Apple Music (here), Google Play (here) and Amazon Music (here).
