OFFICIAL NEWS: THE?LIE – ssttgd`s release of THE?BOOK Part 2 in 2018!

Great news for all our friends and fans – after great success of our conzept album “THE?BOOK” in 2011 we started working constantly on a continuation of it`s story and music.

Together with the author of the Storybook of “THE?BOOK”, Thoralf Koss, we were developing a thrilling sequel, which he brought to life now – und starting end of 2016 we are already working on the music.

Ulf und me wrote most of the compositions again , and now we are already working on the vocal parts with Lars and Sören. Our live guitarist Stephan und former ssttgd guitar player “Eddy” Gemeinhardt already joined us in rehearsing room adding nice ideas and licks.

Furthermore we are looking forward to a especially amazing collaboration: my friend and band mate at “Damanek” , british guitar wizard Luke Machin ( “Maschine” / “Tangent” ) joined us for one week in germany end of june, helping us on development of last arrangements and compositions. He will be the main guitarist on next album.

And of course our original guitar player Martin Schnella will again add amazing guitars, bass parts and vocal arrangements to the final recordings, too.

Last but not least – beside our female ( Anne, Jana ) and male ( Lars, Sören ) singers there will be some amazing guests on the album, again… but we don`t want to give away last secrets 😉

the drum recordings already started!
