The rock 'n' roll, country, and rockabilly combo LenneBrothers Band has signed a record deal with AGR Television Records.
The Lennerockers had been making music together since 1984. When the band announced their split in spring 2016, their fans were, naturally, extremely disappointed. Now, two of The Lennerockers' founding members, Michael "Ele" Koch und Stefan "Teddy" Koch, have decided not to hang up their music hats just yet. The two musicians have music in their genes, and not bearing to leave it behind them, have now founded the LenneBrothers Band.
As the name LenneBrothers Band obviously suggests, the two are brothers, who will continue to take to the stage together. Joining them will be Andreas Kaessens on drums and Claus Coxx on the slap bass, both of whom regularly appeared with The Lennerockers. The LenneBrothers Band's music will reflect the mix of rock 'n' roll, country, and rockabilly that previously proved a hit for the Lennerockers.
The band intends to take a break at the start of 2017, to write songs for a new studio album. The album is scheduled to be launched by AGR Television Records in physical and digital form at the end of May 2017. The debut album is as yet untitled. For the LenneBrothers Band, there was no question about signing a record deal with AGR Television Records, since the two had already worked together successfully for several years. Lead singer Michael "Ele" Koch said of the new contract: "We're in very good hands with AGR Television Records. We enjoy artistic freedom and are supported creatively in realizing and spreading our vision of music. That's why we’ve signed a five-year deal with an experienced team and huge potential for the future!"
In spring 2017, the LenneBrothers Band will also be playing live on tour again. A number of concerts are already on the tour schedule for Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Great Britain. The tour will kick off on March 18, 2017 with the big "Shake Rattle and Roll Weekender" in Great Yarmouth, Great Britain.
