Throughout the 80s and into the 90s, Milwaukee’s Die Kreuzen challenged audiences by pushing the boundaries of what a hardcore band could do, experimenting with sounds far removed from the constraints of the genre. The band broke up in 1992, leaving behind four full lengths, a slew of singles and compilation apperances and an incredible amount of influence. For the remainder of the decade, its members went on to pursue other projects, both musical and otherwise. Meanwhile, the band’s legendary status began to quietly grow amongst musicians and music fans alike. Then, quietly in early 2012, via Facebook, Brammer broke the news – it was true – Die Kreuzen would be reuniting for a benefit show at Milwaukee’s Turner Hall Ballroom in May. The show marked the band’s first live appearance in 20 years, with longtime friend (and unofficial “fifth Kreuzen”) Jay Tiller taking over guitar duties. The band played to a sold out crowd, the setlist spanning their entire career which walked on the hardcore punk side, but also later on the alternative rock, grunge and similar music styles. In this second album self entitled the band remind a lot the best Dead Kennedys moments... enjoy it!
