THE OTHER is considered to be Europe’s most famous Horrorpunk-Band, with a history of five successfull albums, and gigs at some of the biggest Alternative-Festivals in Europe, like Wacken Open Air, Mera Luna, Summer Breeze, Amphi Festival, Force Attack, Wave Gotik Treffen, Endless Summer, Ruhrpott Rodeo and the Weekend of Horrors. Shows with Alice Cooper, Bela B. (of Germany’s Punk-Rock superstars Die Ärzte), The 69 Eyes, The Cult and tours with Misfits, The Damned, Balzac and Wednesday 13 added to the success of the Horror- fivepiece. The band played endlessly all over Europe and even set over to tour the USA and Russia. Two comic-books about THE OTHER were published.
All scene-magazines covered The Other, even the daily- and yellow-press wrote about the band and their videoclip for the Song “Lovers Lane” with adult-actress Leonie Saint. The band was even extensively featured on MTV Masters, on French-German cultural TV-channel Arte (“Tracks”) and on SAT1 (“Planetopia”).
The Other`s first comicbook “Tales From The Other” was also a big success and was followed by a second comic book entitled “Der Fluch des Kultes” in 2012 which was published by Panini Comics.
In 2010 The Other signed a deal with worldwide popular Rock-label SPV (Judas Priest. Alice Cooper, Mötley Crüe, Motörhead...) and cooperated with producer Waldemar Sorychta (The Gathering, Lacuna Coil, Moonspell, Tiamat, etc.) to deliver their best album “New Blood” to date. It`s mixture of dark Punk-Rock with Goth- and Metal- Influences and haunting melodies reviewed outstanding reviews in all genre magazines. The following Album “The Devils you know” was released in 2012 and exceeded the reactions of the media.
The new album “Fear Itself” (SPV/Steamhammer) which came out in June 19th is the most diverse album to date. For the first time The Other appears with two guitars, musically matured but still respecting their roots. Dark Punk-Rock with Gothic-, Metal- influences and great melodies have become a trademark of The Other.
