Finally it’s done! After long five years there is a new 4Backwoods album. Five years? Really? Anyway, the power rockers have played German festivals like Rock am Ring, Area4 or Rheinkultur every year. They toured through Germany with, as seen on N24, a Red Bull double-decker, wrote a song for the Cologne ice hockey team “Kölner Haie” (Cologne Sharks) and shared stage with Therapy?, CKY or Torfrock.
What else has happened? A lot! Guitarist Stephan „Breido“ Breidenich replaced Florian „Deutz“ Deutzmann. Their friend and former manager Alex Parche (Zeltinger Band, Alex Parche Project) passed away much too early. The independent movie producer Ully Fleischer chose the band’s music for his horror movie “Bloodbound” and produced the video clip “Crawlers” which was played on rotation on iMusic1. No new album in those days. In early 2009 4Backwoods finally decided to produce a new album. After a careful screening 13 out of 23 recorded songs are chosen plus a live version of their debut single “The Dream I Live In” to be part of “Be Different Or Die”. The album was mixed and mastered by Dennis Koehne (Woodhouse Studio, Revamp, Enemy of the Sun) except for the third single “Butterfly” which was refined by Uli Auer, too. Three singles? Yes, 4Backwoods and their new label Limited Access Records make no compromise and go the whole hog!
