EDGUY Monuments Limited Vinyl 4LP Box Set

Limited Edition 4 x Vinyl Box Set. 25 years of EDGUY - a silver anniversary that demands celebration! This doesn't mean that the ultra-fashionable Tobias Sammet will be sorting through his wardrobe of stage gear on this occasion. No, it means something else - something much better: This autumn, Sammet and original members Dirk Sauer (guitar) and guitarist Jens Ludwig (guitar), as well as his groovy rhythm section of more than 20 years, Tobias Exxel (bass) and Felix Bohnke (drums), will present their greatest hits on the The Best Of The Best tour. As a prelude to this, the upcoming double CD/DVD package Monuments will feature not only 22 carefully-selected highlights from the band's catalogue, but also five (!) brand-new tracks, which showcase EDGUY at their best! The collection will be completed by the previously unreleased 'Reborn In The Waste', which dates back to 1995 as part of the Savage Poetry recordings. Frontman Tobias Sammet explains: " There are probably not many musicians who are lucky enough to be able to look back on a 25-year-old band history at the end of their thirties. And especially without any line-up changes in the last 20 years! This is even more incredible considering that we're not from Birmingham, New York or a German metropolis but from a small town called Fulda, a place where you normally only know about the insights of the music business by hearsay. The story began in February 1992, when four students from Fulda formed a band. Fuelled by abundance of teenage passion, the quartet of 14-year olds,(Tobias Sammet, Jens Ludwig, Dirk Sauer, and drummer Dominik Storch) named their band after their physics teacher's nickname - EDGUY was born! They first started by playing songs by BON JOVI, AC/DC or KISS but recorded their first demo cassettes with their own songs only two years later. In 1995, they recorded their debut album Savage Poetry at their own expense, which ultimately led to the long awaited record deal. The front man summarizes the work ethic of the band: "We can always say with clear conscience that we have delivered the best that we could afford. And the people feel it and honor it. If you betray yourself as a musician in not giving everything, you will also betray your fans." Not only thanks to this attitude, the band has built a huge and loyal fan base all over the world. In the 25 years that EDGUY have been in business, they have formed their own, immediately recognizable style without letting themselves get stuck to a rigid pattern. They have played countless concerts in over 40 countries and stormed the charts with their albums. The Germans have achieved a lot and still plan more - but first, they are going to celebrate their jubilee with Monuments and the accompanying tour!
