MetalSickness.comrecently conducted an interview with guitarist Jens Ludwig of German melodic metallers EDGUY. You can now watch the chat below.
EDGUY‘s new album, “Age Of The Joker”, entered the Media Control chart in the band’s home country at position No. 3.
Commented the group: “Thank you all for getting an original copy of ‘Age Of The Joker’ and making this possible. It might have been the strongest chart week of the year, with seven new albums hitting the album Top10. There was stiff competition, but YOU were there for us!!! We have given our very best to deliver the best possible album, but YOU, our fans, are responsible for making it such a great success. We are in the middle of our rehearsals for the tour that will kick off on September 23rd and the news hit us in the rehearsing room, where we are sitting right now! Now we’re gonna rehearse so hard, we’ll make sure to blow you all away during the forthcoming live shows and celebrate the biggest heavy metal party you won’t be able to imagine… Be prepared for a great set with a lot of specials, and we are looking forward to seeing you all. Thank you, thank you, thank you — and cheerzzz!”
“Age Of The Joker” was released in Europe on August 29 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded at Peppermint Park studio (SCORPIONS, PHIL COLLINS) in Hannover, which was previously described by the group as “a recording temple with a tremendously great-sounding room.” The album features 11 songs with a total running time of over one hour. The limited-edition digipack contains a bonus disc with six additional songs.
In EDGUY‘s new video, “Robin Hood”, director Oliver Sommer (AVANTASIA, NENA, HELLOWEEN) and the band decided to satirize the Errol Flynn film “The Adventures Of Robin Hood”. The miniature epic was shot in the forest with a large number of additional actors, starring German TV comedian Bernhard Hoecker in two different leading roles.
