New sign of life from Hamburg. On The Floor rides the wave with a new album this October after their surprising resurrection in 2017. „Lifetime“ contains 12 Songs of great depth and presents the band at a ripe point of the career. In the 22nd year of the band’s existence the four musicians can afford this kind of self-confidence. Singer Helge Jungmann, guitarist Henning Thurow, bassist Dennis Lindner and guitarist and songwriter André Lindner are deep-rooted in the German goth-scene since decades. Gigs with Catastrophe Ballet, Girls Under Glass, Clan of Xymox, Phillip Boa & the Voodooclub or at the Wave Gotik Treffen brought a base of devotedly fans. After an EP in 1999 and their debut album in 2003, things became rather quiet – for a very long time… Until 2017 - when some private and fundamental crises were handled on the album „Made of Scars“. From this album onwards, fans can be assured that ON THE FLOOR will be present on the scene in a more regular frequency! And „Lifetime” is proof for this! Noisy electronics start the theme song and underline again how easily On The Floor hit the spirit of time. But their real strength are powerful rock anthems: „Catch My Fall“, „Move on“ or „We light the Sky“ send you on a trip full of huge and catchy melodies. Songwriter André: „After ‘Made Of Scars’ everything came quite naturally. To draw a line under the old topics gave us the needed space to create something new. The whole album was written in almost half a year. Having written the first songs it already felt like this could lead us to an entirely new level.” Leaving turbulent times behind the band is having another go: „It’s about time to build something permanent and consistent. We just want to be close to the people that are with us and our music. Walk with us - it may hurt sometimes but it’s worth the pain.“ By the way: The next album is already in the pipeline…
