PHYSICAL RELEASED / DESPATCHED 15th SEPTEMBER
SCOOTER wouldn't be SCOOTER if they went for understatement when choosing a name for
their 19th studio album. SCOOTER FOREVER as a title leaves
plenty of room for interpretation in this, the 25th year of their existence.
One way of looking at would be that SCOOTERwill Forever be united with their
fans, another would be in recognition of a quarter century (a lifetime in
music) of loyalty to their credo of hedonism, partymania and a fierce
unwillingness to compromise. Flying in the face of convention, SCOOTER have surprised all the doubters
who never expected the band to become such an immovable icon of musical history.
Their systemic success is here to stay.
In this light, the choice of album
title is by no means an overstatement, but a fair reflection of reality: SCOOTER FOREVER!
SCOOTER'supdated status is due in no small measure to Michael Simon and Phil Speiser,
who have ensured continuity in the fifth chapter - whilst the MC skills of
front man and mastermind H.P. Baxxter are as sharp as ever: rarely have his
raps sounded tighter. Add in ever- expanding reserves of musical knowledge and
a desire to engage with contemporary trends and the SCOOTER sound is revealed
to rest on a complex foundation of bass, breaks and micro-improvisation.
FOREVER is an absolute powerhouse of an album, bursting with
pumping rhythms and melodic ideas.
another milestone in the lengthy history of the band! To prove the point, H.P.
Baxxter shouts out a new SCOOTER anthem proclaiming "In Rave We Trust” -
a perfect slice of pop with a simply brilliant, brilliantly simple melody...
how come nobody thought of this one before?! Then there's "Kill The Cat” a tune
which is archetypal Scooter to its very last microparticle, elevating SCOOTER's
trademark sound to new sonic heights. All of the other songs on the album, such
as "Wild & Wicked”, complete with flashes of hyper-tuned guitar, positively
reverberate with hit potential.
how deep H.P. Baxxter's sense of history goes is revealed on the SCOOTER
FOREVERbonus CD, a collection of ten absolute rave classics
whichSCOOTERhave lovingly gleaned from their quarter of a
century in music. From Legend B.’s "Lost in Love” via Infrequent Oscillation's
"Burning Phibes” to Jones & Stephenson's "The First Rebirth”, these ten
killer tunes have rightfully been granted a place in H.P. Baxxter's hall of
Baxxter:"This shows another side of Scooter: respect for our heroes
and their achievements. On the second CD we have gone way back to the early
days (and nights) of rave. These are some of the tunes which influenced and
inspired us when we were starting out as Scooter. On these new recordings, we
have aimed to preserve the vibes of the original tracks whilst updating the
sounds to give them an extra edge today.”
SCOOTER FOREVER will be presented to SCOOTER's fans
worldwide from February 2018 onwards, a year-long party to celebrate the band's
25 years in the game: enter the 100% SCOOTER - 25 Years WILD & WICKEDTour. The guys are on a marathon mission to play for their supporters, having
begun in July of this year with open air shows for crowds of 20,000 in Leipzig
