The Black Lips from St Pauli?… NO! The Seeds? Not either. Here come the SICK HYENAS!!! These twelve versatile tracks offer different facets of SICK HYENAS: punky, folky, beaty garage tunes with juvenile and powerful vocals, a wide range of all facilities from moody to happy lyrics, all speeds and lengths from 20 seconds to 3’49 with a talent for surprising breaks and some kinda sloppiness.
SICK HYENAS are a young German trio formed in Hamburg in 2012, consisting of Velvet Bein (guitar, lead vocals), Thore Seidler (guitar, backing vocals) and Eddie Ness (drums, percussions). After numerous shows throughout Germany and a tape out early 2014 on US tape label Dumpster Tapes of Chicago, SICK HYENAS release their début eponymous album on MOODY MONKEY RECORDS.
SICK HYENAS will be kicking off their long-player this summer in a French and German tour. So when they come to play at your local bar or venue, don’t think twice about seeing them, they are not to be missed! This début album was recorded by Dennis Rux at the Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Studios in Hamburg. It is a refreshing, spontaneous and authentic piece of work. Keep tuned, since they have said their last word.
“SICK HYENAS have been creeping all the good, bad and hidden places of Hamburg’s rock’n’roll side for some time now. The sickness they’re spreading would be well described as a kind of dirty and incurable psychedelism.” (Foggy Girls Club)
This is another great release on the growing garage and beat label that is Moody Monkey Records. Keep your ears to the ground and both eyes on this prize by Sick Hyenas! This album is limited to 500 exemplars.
