Due to a glitch in the matrix, the songs from this EP has dropped out of all playlists it was added to! Very strange indeed, so if you added any of these 4 tracks to your playlist(s) you may have to add them again for your listening pleasure! :) Not long till the full album arrives now! :D

It was 26 years ago today!!! Back in 1993, both Stephan Groth and Per Aksel Lundgreen worked in B3 Records, the coolest record shop in Fredrikstad. They also had a radio-show called Riksradions B3, and they played gigs and released records under the Apoptygma Berzerk moniker! It was an amazing time, and during this period Per Aksel joined forces with Fredrikstad Rockeklubb to put on a gig with Die Krupps, Apoptygma Berzerk and Pouppée Fabrikk at St.Croix-huset in Fredrikstad! Stephan and Per Aksel drove around town and in neighboring towns hanging up posters, and also sold tickets for the gig in B3 Records. The result was an amazing night that is still spoken of as LEGENDARY here in Østfold! Either you were there, or you were not! If you were not, you still hang your head in shame to this day! ;) On the 16th. March 2019, there will be a huge reunion when Die Krupps and Apoptygma Berzerk play together once again at E-tropolis Festival 2019 official! We hope to see you there! Burn the bridges, forge ahead, TO THE HILT!!! #itwastwentysixyearsagotoday #apoptygmaberzerk #diekrupps #pouppeefabrikk #stcroixhuset #fredrikstadrockeklubb

In 1987, The Invincible Spirit released their seminal album, "Current News", an album that would send shockwaves through the lives of some young musicians in Sarpsborg, Norway. The song "Make A Device" in particular caught their interest and was put on every mix-tape for years to come! Already the year before, the ultimate club-classic in the EBM scene, "Push!", was released by the same outfit, and you've all danced to this more than once whether you know it or not. While Belgium was the EBM capitol of the world at the time, The Invincible Spirit a.k.a. Thomas Lüdke, did rise up as the king of German EBM, and kept on releasing brilliant 12" singles like "Contact" and "Devil Dance", and dark and groovy albums like "Rollercoaster Revolution" and "Can Sex Be Sin?". Then they disappeared from the scene completely, so many that entered the scene in the mid- to late-90's may have missed the genius works of The Invincible Spirit. However, a fantastic return in 2015 with the album "Anyway", and great gigs in Germany and also in Sweden, put The Invincible Spirit back on the map for new listeners. There's no denying that "Current News" was a very important factor and inspiration for APOP in the early days, and in songs like "Ashes To Ashes", "Spiritual Reality" and "Backdraft", this inspiration can be heard clearly. The joy for us was therefore immense when The Invincible Spirit agreed to do a remix of "Backdraft" for the "SDGXXV EP" released in December 2018, that also will be available on the 2xLP/CD/Cassette/Digital album "SDGXXV" due in March 2019. To top this off, we are both proud and honored to have invited The Invincible Spirit as our special guest opening act for our gig in Dresden on the 16th. August 2019! We are totally looking forward to this, and we hope that you will all show up EARLY that night to check them out and support them like you would APOP. :) Special thanks for the current news! Check out "Make A Device" by The Invincible Spirit here:
