Can you believe it’s been a whole year since we premiered Aggressive Swans’ ‘Every Teardrop’? Here’s a round up of the year they’ve had…
Exactly one year ago, we premiered ‘Every Teardrop’ on Born Music, the fun, feel-good single of German alternative pop duo Aggressive Swans. This release kicked off a whirlwind of performances in Germany throughout 2017, including Straßenfest Apianstraße / Schwabing Summer Hell 2017 later in the month.
In July, they had the honour of playing a spontaneous secret show at The Nest, Schallvagabunden, followed by Digital Ist Basser – Das M94.5 Festival and Sinnflut Festival 2017 in Erding over the next couple of days. The duo had a well deserved rest before returning to Munich’s Benko Bar in August and then The Lovelace – A Hotel Happening, Munich in September.
Towards the end of the year, Aggressive Swans were thrilled as ‘Every Teardrop’ featured on Indiemono’s Best of 2017 playlist! They returned to The Lovelace in December which was followed by the release of their next, highly anticipated single ‘About You’ at the end of the year.
The duo kicked off 2018 with gigs at Lost Weekend München and Milla Club, Munich, but didn’t reappear until March when they played a one-of-a-kind gig at the Mercedes me Store München.
May 11th was a pinnacle date for the band as they played their first ever show with new drummer Leander Widmoser, ready to play the Midsommer 2018 Festival in Hub near Unterreit.
Janko (guitar/production) provided us a personal insight into their year: “We released our second single ‘About You’. We also got a drummer – Zildjan, Vic Firth and Aquarian endorsed prodigy Leander Widmoser. We played this year’s StuStaCulum Festival, on its 30th anniversary. Next Saturday we are playing at the Midsommar Festival and in the beginning of August at the Munich Session Summer Festival. In the mid August we go on a songwriting holiday to refine our sound.”
‘Every Teardrop’ and ‘About You’ are available to stream and download on all major platforms now.
