HeLL-ZoNe e-zine writes about the upcoming APOP gigs in Deutschland!!! :D
Apoptygma Berzerk Jun 13, 2019
In 2 months we'll be on the plane headed for Germany, and we are super excited! So happy to have The Invincible Spirit with us, now confirmed for all 3 gigs, as well as Vile Electrodes in Hannover and Köln! There's now VERY FEW TICKETS LEFT IN DRESDEN! We will NOT be playing any more festivals in Germany this year, so these gigs will be your opportunity to experience APOP in a club-setting, which is much more intimate and up-front, something we prefer to be honest! :) So, we hope to see you there and to perform both old-school classics as well as some new material for you! :D
Apoptygma Berzerk Jun 06, 2019
There's some really cool bonus tracks on the "Soli Deo Gloria (25th. Anniversary Edition)" CD, and they are only available digitally via the Pitch Black Drive page on Bandcamp! Here you can buy digital downloads as well as physical CD's too! :) Check it out!

Another B-Day in our crew! Today it is Kelly Rayburn celebrating, and for those that don't know her, she's the one running the superb one-stop-Apop-shop in the US, The Electric Fox! Thank you so much for the great work that you do and for holding down the fort on the other side of the pond! May your day be filled with synthpop and and a great party! You're certainly worth it! :D A big horray from the rest of the APB Crew! :D

Back in 1991, this punk-rocker did the vocals for us on the B-side of our very first 12", "Ashes To Ashes", and the track is called "Wrack'em To Pieces". It's a track that is a mix between synth, punk and death-metal, and no one shall ever tell us that we've been afraid to experiment! LOL! Today it's Torro Sollie's B-Day, so we say happy b-day and beers all around, and leave you all with this link here to the track! Listen at your own peril! ;)

The more danceable and fully electronic version of "Mourn". Some people prefer this to the album version from "7". Which one is your "Mourn" favorite?

We're super happy and excited about the collaboration with The Invincible Spirit on "Backdraft" off the "SDGXXV" album, and this week it's at #2 in the DAC (German Alternative Charts) which is amazing! Due to our mutual success and the response we got when we invited The Invincible Spirit to support us at the gig in Dresden on the 16th. August, we've now also asked them to join us in Hannover on the 15th. August and in Köln on the 17th. August! They said yes, so in Hannover and Köln you will now get 3 bands; Vile Electrodes, The Invincible Spirit and APOP!!! :D It will be awesome indeed, see you there! :D
Apoptygma Berzerk May 21, 2019
To Germany with love, and August comes soon! Will be awesome for sure with Vile Electrodes and The Invincible Spirit on tour with APOP in Hannover, Dresden and Köln! See you there, or what??? No other chances in Germany this year!!! Tickets sold at! :D

Happy B-Day to Sara Botteghi who's running the great Apoptygma Berzerk Italia fanpage!!! Thanks for spreading the APOP-news in your country and for doing such a great job! Now all of you Italians that haven't already joined go "like" this page! :D <3 APOP LOVES YOU <3

IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING THE GIG IN OSLO!!! The concert was initially sold out in less than 28 hours, and there are NO MORE TICKETS that will be released for this gig! Unfortunately, some thieving criminal bastards have taken advantage of this, and have sold fake tickets or "promises of tickets" to several fans desperate to get a ticket for the show! It saddens us deeply to see our fans being exploited like this, when all they want to do is come see a gig and have a good time! So, PLEASE, do NOT buy any tickets for this show (or any other sold-out show of ours for that matter) from people you don't know personally, unless you have some mutual friend(s) that can vouch for the person and the validity of the ticket(s). NO ONE has "several" tickets for this show as it is now, so that's the first thing that should be a red flag, if someone posts on every "tickets wanted" post, claiming to have "many tickets". All 500 tickets for this show was sold to hardcore fans who'd kept their ear to the ground and were well informed about when and how to secure tickets for the show. So, no "speculators" or "ticket touts" even had a chance to get their hands on any tickets, because they had no idea what was going on in the first place. This in itself is very pleasing, but unfortunately this doesn't stop these thieving criminal bastards from saying "I have a ticket, pay me in advance and I'll send it to you!". Being music/concert freaks ourselves, we understand your despair over not getting tickets, and as we draw closer to the 24th. August, some people will always have change of plans, get sick, or will for one reason or another be prevented from attending the show. This will be your chance to secure a ticket! However, we beg of you, our fans, from our heart, PLEASE RE-SELL YOUR TICKETS AT FACE VALUE!!! We know it's tempting to make a quick buck from a desperate fan, but instead, make someone happy if you yourself cannot go and have to sell your ticket! Thanks for the support and for all the interest in this gig in Oslo! It's really amazing to understand how much you're looking forward to this! We do too! <3 APOP LOVES YOU <3

Only 66 copies of each! Now 5 of each have been put online at our US webstore! These are sold out since before they were released, and we've decided to make our last few copies available for you! These are the last remaining copies you can get for a "normal" price before you have to go into the collectors market and pay silly prices for them! Also in stock at The Electric Fox is "Exit Popularity Contest" and "Soli Deo Gloria" on cassette for you tape enthusiasts! Loads of t-shirts and other goodies too! Want that tape? The time is NOW! :D

We said we weren't going to do any festivals this year, ha ha, but what do you say when they call you up from Spain with a line-up like this??? Just HAD to do it, right?? Our first time playing in Spain for years, and we are totally ready for a 2-day party in Madrid with an insane line-up of old-school electronic and goth acts! This festival, together with W-Festival in Belgium will be the only two festivals we'll be doing for the remainder of this year, NO festivals in Germany this summer, so if you Germans wanna hook up and get your APOP-fix, join in on our club dates in Hannover, Dresden and Köln in August! Y viva España!!! :D

When we were on our first German tour back in 1994, Ecki Eckert Stieg had us visit him on his radio-show, Grenzwellen, and we did a live interview on air! With him being the German equivalent of John Peel, we felt very honored, and we've sent promo material of all our new singles and albums to him ever since. For the last 5 years, his show has been running on Radio Hannover, and with streaming etc coming into the picture, it's more difficult now to run an underground show on radio than ever before. Thanks to Ecki, thousands of bands have over the years got played on his show when no, or few others would touch it. He's never been afraid to play a 22 minute ambient piece, or something so abstract that it could be hard to understand the point of it all. Always on the forefront, never afraid to challenge, and a fighter for, and a connoisseur of, electronic music, Ecki Stieg and Grenzwellen has been, and still is, the most important German radio-show for electronic music and for electronic artists! To help fund continued production of the Grenzwellen show that's broadcasted every Wednesday night from 9PM to 12PM, Bandcamp compilations have been made of contributions from artists supporting the show, and on May 22nd, "Grenzwellen Vier" and "Grenzwellen Fünf" is being released! We have now supported the show by donating a track to "Grenzwellen Vier" that NEVER has been released digitally before, namely the kraut-rock'ish "Rhein Klang" off our "Exit Popularity Contest" album, specially chosen by Ecki himself! A total of 39 tracks is on this compilation and it's yours for the silly price of 15 EUR (or more if you want to support the show!), and we're proud and humble to be on it together with our friends in Cronos Titan, and with other great names like The Weathermen, Twice A Man, Mind Over Midi and many more! PLEASE pre-order this compilation to ensure that "Grenzwellen" keeps on rolling, we need it for our electronic community, and we need to pay respect to such an old-timer in this scene! Were would we all be without such support? APOP LOVES GRENZWELLEN! <3 Support here:
