German metallers EDGUY are big fans of boxing, the band have recently announced that they will rock Berlin “Velodrom” on May 3rd and help boxing world champion Arthur Abraham to defend his title against the competing Nikola Sjekloca (live on German National TV “ARD”).
Vocalist and EDGUY-mastermind Tobias Sammet commented as follows: “We want to give Arthur an awesome walk-in. Thus we have chosen the song ‘Love Tyger’ from our new record that will give both the audience as well as Arthur an uplifting spirit on his way to the ring.”
Even the subtitle of the brand new EDGUY release – Defenders Of The Crown – goes along perfectly to the Berlin fight night of Arthur Abraham, according to Sammet. Especially since WM competitor Nikola Sjekloca has been bragging about being the next „King“ with his victory over Abraham for weeks and that he will crown himself as “Nikola the I.”.
“This won’t work. King Arthur will of course defeat his crown successfully and Sjekloca will go home empty-handed. We are completely sure about this”, Sammet says.
