“Last Tribe Standing”, the first official OSTROGOTH release since 1987, which features current band lineup that has been active since their return at Germany’s Keep It True Festival (in 2012), is out now on Empire Records.
“At first the idea was to release a 4-track EP with new material, just like we did back in 1983 with our “Full Moon’s Eyes” debut. Not a full album, just an EP with four killer songs. But a few days before we entered the studio to record the new tracks, we were listening to the tapes of some summer festival shows we had recorded earlier this year, solely for our own archives. The recordings were raw and 100% live, but the tapes sounded so good, it would’ve been a shame not to use them. So grew the idea to release two EP’s, back to back. With the four new songs on the A-side of the vinyl version and on the B-side the four songs from the “Full Moon’s Eyes” EP, in a 2014 live versions, the way the current line-up plays them. Old and new gathered in one!” – says the band.
