The Skinny: “We had about 80 songs recorded during this time, but we kept throwing away recordings and starting over again until we felt we created something totally new.” Marcel Neumann, Guitarist for German quartet, We Butter The Bread With Butter (WBTBWB) underscores the band’s drive for spiritual and stylistic growth in the three years between full-length albums. The resulting album, Goldkinder, dropping August 13th will be WBTBWB’s third full-length and their first official physical release for the U.S.
Recorded by the band themselves and mixed by the legendary Stefan Glaumann (Rammstein, Apocalyptica), Goldkinder is the widest ranging yet the most cohesive WBTBWB release to date. Incorporating the technical harmonics of metal and the hooks of electro-pop into heavy rock, songs range from in-your-face pit-starters like “Alles Was Ich Will” to tunes with colossal melodies like “Mayday Mayday.” The resulting thirteen songs deliver on the promise of past releases and threaten to bring WBTBWB-mania to a worldwide audience.
The Projekt Herz EP (which dropped on June 4th) is the band’s first official U.S. release. Meant as a transitory release to ease longtime fans in the sound-shift from Der Tag to Goldkinder; Projekt Herz has caught the attention of notable U.S media such as Revolver Magazine and Metal Insider as well as Sirius XM’s Liquid Metal who are currently spinning the song “USA” on regular rotation. We Butter The Bread With Butter will be announcing a U.S. tour in support of Goldkinder in the coming weeks.
