We stand togehter, we fall togehter
When Covid-19 hit the world and all gigs were canceled, long-time friends Silvio Schlesier and Sebastian Walkenhorst decided to start a new band. They built their own recording studio in their practice room and after the renovation work and the technical installations had been completed, it was time to write the first PLIZZKEN record. An overwhelming, almost unstoppable wave of inspiration drove them both to work hard, with energy and a lot of fun on their first full-length album "... and their paradise is full of snakes".
It was the first time for the two musicians that everything that came to mind during the songwriting was 100% translated into music. Once the instruments were in hand, no discussions were necessary. Silvio and Sebastian are two big music fanatics and while writing the record they listened to countless records from different punk decades to get a great and catchy feeling for the sound and the aesthetics of their debut album.
It was quickly decided to sing in English. The first line for this album, which also clearly shows the basic attitude of the two friends, was: “Go all the way!” From the title song “… and their paradise is full of snakes”.
Bands like The Who, Small Faces, Beatles, Beach Boys, the early David Bowie, but also bands like The Clash, Sex Pistols, Misfits, 7 Seconds, No Use For A Name, NOFX, Social Distortion and many more had a great influence on the band.
In general, PLIZZKEN even managed to convince the American market in a very short time, even before the first release, that this band has a clear future. So the strong Pirates Press Records label from California could already be won over for the debut album. As a booking agency, M.A.D. Tour-Booking is a must.
PLIZZKEN will be a live band and we wanna bring the energy and power on very stage everywhere people wanna see us. That’s the goal and the direction of the band.
