German modern metal upstarts LEAGUE OF DISTORTION deliver the next milestone in their young careers! Following the successful release of first singles “Wolf or Lamb” and “My Revenge”, LEAGUE OF DISTORTION – featuring the musical finesse and experience of Anna “Ace” Brunner (Exit Eden) and Jim “Arro” Müller (Kissin’ Dynamite) – abandon all rules with “It Hurts So Good”. The track is a staple piece of their new rule, convincing with Brunner’s powerful voice and a heavy-hitting sound, and features extra power from guest vocalist Christoph Wieczorek of post-hardcore heroes Annisokay. “It Hurts So Good” reveals another glimpse of the band’s hard-hitting self-titled debut album, set for release on November 25, 2022!
LEAGUE OF DISTORTION on “It Hurts So Good”:
“With this unconventional lullaby, we are sharing a dirty little secret with you. Writing and creating this song with Christoph Wieczorek and Julian Breucker was an absolute pleasure and blast. Now we cannot wait to be on the road with Annisokay, Caliban and Resolve! Meet us on Tour and join the league!”
A new force, LEAGUE OF DISTORTION unite to defeat the shadows cast upon the music scene with their fresh sound and style! Back in 2017, Anna Brunner celebrated remarkable international success with her symphonic metal band Exit Eden, and has now teamed up with notorious guitarist Jim Müller of renowned heavy metal band Kissin’ Dynamite. Together, they’ve formed one of the hottest new modern metal bands of the year, combining their signature sounds to create a powerful soundscape. Now, they are ready to fight the darkness yet again with their 2022 full-length, the self-titled debut album, League of Distortion.
Lifting the dark veil of stagnation caused by the pandemic, LEAGUE OF DISTORTION introduce a new sound that resonates with the uncertainty of this period. “Wolf or Lamb” – the addictive first stand-alone single that introduced the band as a force to be reckoned with – ignites the fire of the full album. “Rebel By Choice” and “The Bitter End” show the band’s burning passion and dedication to the genre, while “My Revenge” convinces with a catchy hook and bashing guitar riffs. The elemental force of Anna “Ace” Brunner’s distorted, powerful voice merged with chunky riffs played by Jim “Arro” Müller, steady and strong beats delivered by Tino “Aeon” Calmbach and edgy bass by Felix “Ax” Rehmann unifies them, forming a strong blast of an album that cannot be missed! LEAGUE OF DISTORTION showcase the individual musical expertise of its members without ever becoming stagnant or pretentious – unabashedly distorting the order and launching a new age of metal. Songs like “I’m A Bitch” and “It Hurts So Good” abandon all rules, while catchy hooks like in “L.O.D.” mark anthems to claim their new reign. With songs like “Solitary Confinement” and “Sin”, the band shows their lyrical depth by turning their sadness into a powerful war cry, providing expressive pieces and hymns for the lost.
LEAGUE OF DISTORTION convinces with classic pieces featuring strong instrumentals, on-the-nose lyrics and energetic vocals, proving their penchant to stand out from the pack. They’ve transformed their frustration into a musical statement beyond comparison. With “Do You Really Think I Fucking Care”, the band lands the final punch of the album to make the message clear: LEAGUE OF DISTORTION are here to set the scene ablaze!
The band on their debut album:
“With this debut album, we lay the cornerstone of LEAGUE OF DISTORTION. Processing the cruel and capricious reality, with straight-forward, provocative and very personal topics, we are distorting perspective and creating tremendously powerful music. LEAGUE OF DISTORTION is here to stay and we welcome you to be a part of this from the very beginning.”
