Just in time for the upcoming release of their new album, Im Zeichen der Zeit (out September 18 via Napalm Records), German rock group SERUM 114 proves that their heart still beats for pure, dirty punk rock! Their fourth single, “Meine Band” (engl. my band), showcases SERUM 114’s pure intention for brash lyrics and catchy riffs, underlined by Eche’s scratchy vocals. The accompanying official lyric video opens a box of memories and features some shots of their explosive and captivating live shows, which can be experienced again at their release concert in Gelsenkirchen (GER) today.
With a light-footed, tongue-in-cheek attitude, SERUM 114 takes a closer look at the music business, underlines that they are not taking themselves too seriously, and demonstrates that they have not lost their sense of humor throughout their years.
Following their chart-topping full-length Die Nacht Mein Freund (engl. “the night is my friend”) (GER #3), the new album includes 14 energetic tracks, careening towards a rock break-out. With their new offering, they double down on their musical power and present themselves stronger than ever before: lyrically, musically and stylistically!

The new album, Im Zeichen der Zeit, presents 14 energetic modern rock tracks: In an honest and authentic punk rock manner, “Freiheit” (engl. “freedom”) invites the listener to reflect on moments filled with happiness, to center themselves and find balance within, even if it’s just for a short amount of time. The mid-tempo anthem “Abgefucktes Leben” (engl. “fucked up life”) is driven by its unmistakably catchy chorus and dedicated to the simplicity of daily life. Esche’s rough vocals classify the band’s unique trademark, whilst pushing their songs, such as “Meine Band” (engl. “my band”), to a highly energetic level.
Despite wearing their punk rock attitude on their sleeves, SERUM 114 is also capable of slowing down: “Wir scheitern voran” (engl. “we fail”) is a powerful ballad of failure and unveils an unusually calm side of the band.
