Modern Pets

Mixing Modern Pets new 7″ B.I.Y.S.  on Secret Mission Records.

“MODERN PETS are back! With a couple of LP’s, a demo and a string of EP’s on such infamous labels as P.Trash, Modern Action and Dead Beat  Records, among others,  under their belt, this outfit from Berlin, Germany is showing no signs of slowing down. Their latest offering, a two-song scorcher, on Secret Mission Records recalls the best of late seventies-style power pop/punk rock bands like The Undertones, The Kids, Normals,  as well as some later combos such as The Hives(early on), Teengenerate, Carbonas and their fellow krauts The Kidnappers. The lead track, “B.I.Y.S.”, is an absolute fist-pumper. Punchy drums, killer guitars with a crazy fuzzed out lead in the middle. An all too familiar battle call in the chorus takes on a whole new life here. An instant classic, for sure! On the flipside is “Sweet Frustration”, a testament to trials and tribulations faced by a teenage leather jacket clad Romeo. A superbly executed sing-along that will be stuck in your head for quite some time. This EP will be out in time for the band’s North/South American Tour. A limited pressing of 500,  with  free download coupon included. And don’t forget to check them out live in the scummiest, sleaziest rock & roll pit near you!”

Mastering the new Modern Pets LP.

“Modern Pets were born in the beginning of 2009 by four friends in south Germany. After a few first shows and a demo recorded in their practice room and released by F.Y.I.T.H. Records, it happened that everyone decided to put as much time as possible into the band, rather than get into the next boring job or another pointless band and so things started getting serious….
A first 7” was recorded in January 2010 by Smail Shock in Berlin, named “Killing Sounds For Rotten People” and hit directly into the picture that was drawn by 70s UK and 80s US Punkbands before. This release, which was followed by two European tours in summer and fall 2010, sold out within a few months and two more 7”s (re-release of the demo tape and “Vista-Alienation”) emphasized their standing as one of the hardest working bands in this genre!
Meanwhile located in Berlin, they put out their first longplayer on P.Trash and Concrete Jungle Records, as well as Modern Action Records in the US in June 2011. This release was followed by a 4 week European tour in summer and another 2 week tour in fall, which brought the guys to countries like Switzerland, France, Spain, Netherlands, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary […]
After almost 160 shows in 2 years, the band will record a few new songs for a single release on Rockstar Records in January 2012 to be on tour for the rest of the year! 2 European tours and a US Westcoast tour are already fixed as well as the recording of a new album in the end of the year…. So, watch out! 2012´s gonna be a Modern Pets year!”
