The new ONKEL TOM album will be released in September!



New album Bier Ernst out on 28 September 2018

Double CD featuring merry drinking numbers and serious songs

Wacken show in early August

His fans have been celebrating his current EP ‘Zwischen Emscher & Lippe’ since mid-June. Now Ruhr rock icon Onkel Tom has announced the benchmark data of his latest album: Bier Ernst will be out on 28 September 2018 and consists of 21(!) tracks on two CDs, titled – in accordance with their lyrical content – respectively Bier and Ernst. The recording will be available on SPV/Steamhammer on DigiPak double CD, double vinyl LP (Gatefold) and for digital download. As hinted on ‘Zwischen Emscher & Lippe’, Onkel Tom a.k.a. Tom Angelripper (Sodom) presents himself on Bier Ernst more diverse and autonomous than ever before: Along with rock versions of the popular drinking and party ditties that Onkel Tom and his band are renowned for, Tom and his four comrades-in-arms – drummer Cornelius Rambadt, guitarists Marcel Mönnig and Klaus Nicodem, and bassist Marc Beste – have recorded a dozen original numbers.

Tom reveals what his fans can look forward to:

“The title track of our recent EP and eight additional numbers on the Ernst CD present the band from a slightly different perspective.  They’re songs full of passion for music, but of course also full of anger about people’s indifference that’s bound to destroy the world. Naturally it will also feature the new hit single, which will be supported by a very elaborate video clip. Get ready to be surprised! But don’t worry: the twelve songs on the Bier CD celebrate life, having a good time and sophisticated drinking. Our fans can rest assured that we’re as thirsty as ever and that we will quench that thirst with them at our shows.”

So get ready for the Onkel Tom performance at Wacken 2018!
