KÄRBHOLZ have released the official video for their new single “Seele Auf Der Haut”. Watch the video below.
For one day, the four band members had all their tattoos covered up by means of an elaborate make-up procedure in order to find out: How does it feel to be so naked? Without all the colourful decorative scars on the skin that tell so much of the past, make so many moments everlasting and look so damn good?! They explored the questions: How do the tattooed live? What is the courtship and mating behaviour of these naked creatures and what do they feed on? Are the common rumours and prejudices about the social behaviour of this species true and how can we learn from each other?
After the filming, singer Torben Höffgen said: “When I saw myself in the mirror for the first time, so naked, so fragile, without my protective pigments, I was deeply frightened. I was ashamed. But maybe, and this is what the experiment proved, because I simply didn’t know anything about this colourless way of life and I had to admit to myself that I had a lot of prejudices.” Drummer Henning Münch added, visibly moved: “When I saw myself like this, I couldn’t help thinking of my childhood and I also cried a little.”
See for yourself how the experiment developed and what drastic changes it set in motion in the psyche of the four protagonists.
The occasion for this experiment is the release of the song “Seele Auf Der Haut”. A hymn to the tattooed lifestyle that many of us live.
