February 25, 2024

Last week we had the incredible pleasure of welcoming back a regular in our beautiful town – Lionheart. They made a stop in Munich on their 10-year- anniversary tour for their killer album “Welcome To The West Coast”. It’s almost traditional that they play at the Backstage Werk and also that the show is sold out. Same thing this time. It was an amazing package that night and people had lots of fun, including a wall of death solely for the ladies and a guy in a wheelchair crowd surfing. So no dull moments ….. enjoy the pictures. Paleface (swiss) Kublai Khan (TX) Suicide Silence Lionheart Thank you to the bands and venue for letting us cover the show!

Today our BottleRock Napa Featured Artist Royel Otis releases debut album

February 16, 2024

Today for our BottleRock Napa featured artist, we bring to you Royel Otis. This Australian guitar-pop duo from Sydney took us by storm last year when we first heard their track Sofa King. We loved their sound and were instantly hooked, impatiently waiting for them to come to the Bay Area.  We were so excited to see that they will be performing at BottleRock Napa 2024! Today, Royel Otis released their debut album Pratts & Pain. About the album, The album is named after our favourite pub in Streatham that we would go to when we were recording with Dan Carey. Dan would ask us to record vocals, and we’d say, ‘Just give us half an hour, we’re popping to Pratts & Payne’, and we’d have a pint, a few shots, and get some lyrics down. One of our favourites from the album is Foam, an ode to all those who need their mouths washed out with soap. It’s ok if you don’t understand some things just don’t look back in anger. Check out Foam [Read More]
