New album - many formats
With their exciting narratives and instruments perfectly fitting to the genre, the musicians of Schandmaul have long since stood for first-class medieval folk rock. With their album „Knüppel aus dem Sack“, the band have focused on product diversity and the release comes in interestingly varied versions.
Band member and singer Thomas Lindner commented on this in an interview with Musikwoche as follows: „Especially in times when sales of regular CDs are decreasing more and more, such deluxe versions are really important, even if some people who buy vinyl records don’t even have a record player. They are interested in the collector’s item that they can put on their shelf,“ adds the singer. Nevertheless, physical releases are also important because, as Lindner puts it, we have to fight against a huge oversupply and ever-shorter attention spans in the digital world. „Some people find the TikTok clips too long, as I myself recently saw on a commuter train ride. But it’s important for us to tell longer stories with our music.“ (Source: https://beta.musikwoche.de/details/472143)
