Directly from the heart of the dusty “Ruhr”-area the DEAD KOYS release their newest work “Wehringhausen”.
This is their third EP, which got named after a suburb of the city of Hagen. Reasons are obvious: Wehringhausen is where the DEAD KOYS rehearse, where they garner their ideas and where they recorded this EP full of charm, emotions and recall value. Without becoming one in a million punk bands, the DEAD KOYS create their own sound somewhere in between of dusty melodic punk and the emo-stuff that reminds us of the 90s. Playing more than 80 gigs with bands like Leatherface, Nothington and Captain Planet left their marks and made the DEAD KOYS a routined live band. “Wehringhausen” is now the result of three continuous weeks in the homestudio, the result of several broken strings and it is a homage to the “Ruhrgebiet”, Punk and also to disorientation and the will to break free from the daily routine.
