Due to the actual covid19 crisis, it’s a very hard time for everybody, for example for the artists who are not able to make live shows or to tour any more… But it’s not only hard for bands and the actors of the cultural scene, many other sectors need help like the animal protection sector… Actually animals shelters are full because too many people decided to abandon their animals, and due to the social distancing, it’s very hard for people to adopt these pets… Also, due to the financial crisis, the animal shelters which work with donations only, got less donations than usual and some of them are unfortunately not able to save new animals any more cause they are full and at the end of their ressources.

That’s why we’ve decided to use the reach of this festival for a good cause: if you can and if you want, we invite you to make donations via the Tipeeestream link below. The first half of your donation will go to the animal shelter « Tierschutzverein Heidelberg » and the second half will go to the bands you’re going to see during this festival.

AUGER - Insurgence

Hell yeah! The new AUGER album "Insurgence" is OUT NOW!

The end of days is upon us all. The world as we know it has perished into a state beyond repair by a fire fuelled by greed, corruptness and power. When all hope seems lost, one spark remains - in the eyes of those in Team AUGER!

The 14-tracks on this album tell tails of loss, destruction, alliance and overcoming. Broadcasting a message that by joining together, the insurgence will be strong enough to take back what was stolen, and find justice for all that was lost in the flames of their abuse.

AUGER’s surging development is apparent in this, the latest instalment of their story. The album plays at full throttle from start to finish. Fusing throaty guitars with dancing synth melodies and wrapping them up with clean, incandescent vocals is how insurgence shows AUGER continues to bend the rules of genre specificity. The dramatic, high-energy soundtrack is fit for fans of LORD OF THE LOST, ZEROMANCER, BLUTENGEL, DIARY OF DREAMS, THE HORRORS and PARADISE LOST. And that's not all, as you'll be pleasantly surprised to hear heavy influences from the eighties, with melodies reminiscent of bands such as THE CURE and DEPECHE MODE.

It's all this that makes this electronic-infused dark rock album, something truly special and AUGER are incredibly proud and excited to share it with you all. Will you join the insurgence? Will you stand with us and rebuild this world to be a more inclusive, sustainable and positive environment? Together, we will be successful. Together, we are AUGER.
