German chart-toppers KISSIN’ DYNAMITE (#7 on the German Album Charts) are gearing up for the release of their new album, Not The End Of The Road, and today, bring the excitement to the next level with their new charity single “Good Life” alongside a bombastic music video!
For some time now, KISSIN’ DYNAMITE have fought against childhood cancer through the power of their music. Today, the band furthers this imperative campaign with the release of the album track and new charity awareness single “Good Life”, featuring high-caliber guests Charlotte Wessels, Alea der Bescheidene (Saltatio Mortis) and Guernica Mancini (Thundermother). With this meaningful power ballad, the German powerhouse showcases their softer side by delivering a song that could easily be heard on any mainstream rock radio station!

KISSIN’ DYNAMITE have partnered with the Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder Tübingen e.V., a charity organization that supports children with cancer in their hometown. In conjunction with the release of “Good Life”, the band has created a campaign shirt (see below), which is now available for purchase HERE. 100% of the proceeds from the shirt and a portion of the proceeds received from downloads and streams of “Good Life” itself will be donated to to the Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder e.V. in Tübingen.
KISSIN’ DYNAMITE on “Good Life”:
“The message of our song ‘Good Life’ concerns ALL people, regardless of gender, age, size, weight, sexuality, origin or skin color. Therefore, it is important for us to continue the cooperation we started in 2020 with the Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder e.V., an organization that supports children with cancer in our hometown. With that, all of the proceeds from the campaign shirt and a portion of the proceeds from the charity awareness song, which features three well-known artists, will go directly to the organization.”
Founded in 2007, German heavy metal formation KISSIN’ DYNAMITE have made more than just a name for themselves in the scene: With six studio albums and various chart entries (#7 on the GER album charts with their full-length Ecstasy in 2018), the band established their trademark style – characterized by modern sound, massive anthems and catchy hooks paired with an 80s stadium rock attitude and eccentric look. Now, the five piece is ready to release their Napalm Records debut, Not The End Of The Road, and usher in heavy metal in 2022!
The new studio album was produced, recorded and mixed by vocalist Hannes Braun (Südland Music) himself, who has also worked with bands like Santiano, The Kelly Family and Beyond The Black. Mastering was completed by Grammy Award winning producer Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios, known for his work with bands like Volbeat and many more.
Ande Braun on the new album:
“Not The End Of The Road is an album that accurately describes our experiences as a band since Ecstasy in 2018. First and foremost, we highlight with songs like “Not The End Of The Road”, “What Goes Up”, “Yoko Ono” and “Only The Dead”: We’re up for it, we’re pulling together and we want to reach the rock Olympus! Titles like “Coming Home”, “Gone For Good” and “Scars”, on the other hand, deal with real feelings like loneliness, homesickness and sadness, which are also part of life.”
Hannes Braun adds:
“With Ecstasy, we already didn’t make any compromises and just wanted to compose music that speaks from us. Not The End Of The Road seamlessly picks up exactly here.”

With Not The End Of The Road, KISSIN’ DYNAMITE set another milestone in their successful discography: In guitar-driven power metal fashion, the tune of the intro and title track “Not The End Of The Road” prepares the listener for a thrilling road trip and new anthems straight from the heart of the KISSIN’ DYNAMITE universe. Crusher “What Goes Up” takes its listener into the truly spectacular soundscapes that make stadiums shake and convinces with Aerosmith-like guitar attacks and an anthemic hook. But KISSIN’ DYNAMITE are also not afraid to show their mellower side, as heard on delightfully tranquil tracks like “Good Life” and “Gone For Good” – not only showcasing the almost calm touches pervading the melodies, but also presenting the softer side of Braun’s vocal repertoire. While tracks like “No One Dies A Virgin” and “Yoko Ono” symbolize catchy party hymns, standouts “Coming Home” and “Defeat It” underline their origins of stadium rock without being pigeonholed. “Voodoo Spell” manifests the variety of the band and their different influences – starting with strong dark rock elements, the song becomes an opus that easily competes with the biggest stadium giants. The album’s closer, “Scars”, proves once again that KISSIN’ DYNAMITE can reach the depths and showcase lyrical vulnerability – an impressive ending that screams to be played live.
