Staubkind / Bio

Three years after the debut album „Traumfänger“ was published there will be the second longplayer in the stores on October 12th 2007.
Again you can expect 13 catchy, guitar dominated rocksongs with emotional, German lyrics, which put the honestly told feelings into the centre of attraction and are able to transport them directly to the listener. With the debut the way of Staubkind was chosen and with “Zu Weit” it will be continued.
The songs especially describe feelings and emotions which can be found in everyone of us and which are known to everyone.
The album mixes driving tracks like “Königin” or “Wunderschön” with sad ballads like “Zu Weit” or “Letzter Tag”. Highlights of the album are the duet “Wenn Du Schläfst” and the acustic song “Vergiss Nicht”, too. Both of them are results of the collaboration with Carsten Klatte (Lacasa Del Cid, guitarist for Project Pitchfork, Wolfsheim etc.) and the singer and actress Serena Gruß.
Since 2001 the guitarist Louis Manke has been playing for Terminal Choice and called the people’s attention to his own work first in 2003 by founding his soloproject Staubkind.
By publishing his debut album “Traumfänger” on the label of Chris Pohl – Fear Section – Louis Manke reached the state of a solo artist and achieved lots of sympathies during the following live concerts at the 13th Wave Gotik Treffen, also at the first headliner tour in autumn 2004.
In 2005 the in between sold out first album was re-released with completely new artwork and bonustracks and was presented live on many festivals like the Wave Gotik Treffen, the Woodstage- and the Amphi-Festival or the M’era Luna. On time of the second headliner tour in autumn 2005 the MCD “Ausgebrannt” appeared.
After the year of 2006 above all has been a year of working on the new material for the upcoming album Louis Manke, his band and finally the new record “Zu Weit” will invite their audience to escape from their everyday life on the third tour in November 2007.
