TOXPACK are an institution. For 20 years, the Berliners have blasted the purest streetcore out into the republic, playing countless shows from the most borderline hellhole to the country’s mightiest festival stages, from the toughest asphalt to high up in the charts.
Two decades of pure dedication – doing their own thing, going their own path and grabbing more and more followers along the way.
After releasing “Bastarde für alle Zeit”, TOXPACK continue to show that they don’t mince words on ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT (out January 28 via Napalm Records). Packed with doubt, frustration and energy, they critique divine powers on their new single “Ozean voll Scheiße”.
The single offers another powerful taste of what to expect from their upcoming album, ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT.
ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT is a flare of expulsion – anger, hate and despair, raw and unfiltered. It’s the tone TOXPACK has been setting for 20 years. They can’t do and they don’t want anything else: from the streets for the street.
ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT is also a gift to all old and new fans. TOXPACK is 20 years of streetcore, force, intensity and unconditional honesty, felt by many.
The connection between band and fans is unique – and ZWANZIG.TAUSEND VOLT is the energy boost for everything that is yet to come.
Guitarist and lyricistTommi Tox about the new album:
All the energy, perseverance, what we have experienced and the constant will to always give everything, simply everything that has accumulated over the past 20 years, inevitably comes together on this album and that has to be sent to this world. We probably couldn’t have given ourselves a better birthday present.
