Die Apokalyptischen Reiter Announces Acoustic Tour Dates

After two sold out acoustic premiere shows in Berlin and Jena, the wait is now over: Die Apokalyptischen Reiter will embark on the band’s first ever acoustic tour featuring ten hand-picked shows throughout Germany.

Evergreens of the extended band history will be played in a whole new sound setting. Due to the overwhelming fan reactions, the trip down memory lane continues. The tour will take place in March, with a teaser trailer available below.

Commented the band: “When we first played some acoustic shows, two years ago, we had no idea whatsoever, how the fans would react. We’ve expected anything, but not that our die-hard fans would be those to mostly appreciate it and give us padding on the back. It was just magic, very close and personal. It gives us goose bumps time and again, to play those songs we wrote as teenagers with a totally different sound. We are psyched and glad to have found very special locations that will be the right setting for those concerts.”

Die Apokalyptischen Reiter Streaming Acoustic Song “Die Zeit”

After streaming “Freitheit Gleichheit Brüderlichkeit” and “Was bleibt bin,” Die Apokalyptischen Reiter now presents another track from the new double album “Tief.Tiefer.” that is due out May 30th.

“Die Zeit” is the band’s first ever acoustic song and it can be heard in the player below. Commented the band:

“The recording sessions had a truly magical, special atmosphere. Unlike the rough first part ‘Tief,’ we decided to try new things with ‘Tiefer,’ things that have been appealing to us for a long time now. Newly interpreting old classics and entering new paths without alienation gave us shivers each time. We asked our video team to just film during recordings. A sweaty, intense performance during our loud shows can be very addictive, but we also enjoy slowing down. It’s definitely cool to play, sitting down. We’re already looking forward to our acoustic tour in the spring of 2015. The dates will be announced this fall.”
