‘To Hell With Love’ mini-album released on Solitary Man Records on Sept 14 2009. It will be preceded by the ‘Break My Stride’ single on Sept 7 2009.
German punk royalty The Donots are a band with a quite amazing pedigree. 600,000 units sold worldwide. Three Top 20 albums in their native Germany. Two Top 10 albums in Japan. Over 1000 live shows (with acts like Green Day, Bad Religion, Blink182, AFI, The Offspring, NOFX, Iggy Pop, Linkin Park, Jimmy Eat World, Weezer, The Hives, etc). Soundtrack contributions to a TONNE of video games (Guitar Hero, Need For Speed, MVP Baseball, Burnout III, Drum Maniac, Guitar Freak). The list goes on…
With a staggering seven albums under their belts already, this youthful, dynamic quintet are set to bring their infectious and compelling punk rock extravaganza to the UK. In Sept 2009 the ‘To Hell With Love’ mini-album will unleash it’s six tracks of Donots madness on a happy public.
Released on the band’s own Solitary Man Records (the band were previously signed to Gun/BMG and Burning Heart Records), the record is a fantastic demonstration of the band’s easy grasp of melody, muscle and mega choruses. The Donots make you want to dance. Simple as that.
And if the name of Solitary Man records sounds familiar it’s probably because they have been releasing albums from other acts like Placebo, Dropkick Murphys, Beatsteaks and the UK’s own The Lucky Nine in Japan. They’re busy boys the Donots.
With a feet on the ground / fist in the air attitude, and a boat load of ambitious, dark veined punk anthems, The Donots are all set to be your new favourite band.
