Human Touch

Is no longer a band

Although there's already a long list of bands that decided to quit or broke up in 2016, the list is only getting longer and more personal. Also our boys in HUMAN TOUCH, who released their first full length 'Mental Chill' on Let it Burn Records, have decided to put things to an end.

"To get to the point right away: Human Touch is no longer a band.

During recent talks about the future of this band we realised that it wasn't possible anymore to find common ground, so we mutually decided that it would be for the best to call it a day.

A sincere thank you goes out to all the people who helped us keep doing this - be it to release or record our music, to book a show for us, to create a shirt design, to capture us with a camera or just to appreciate our music. You know who you are and we couldn't thank you enough!

On a final note, keep supporting young, fresh and upcoming bands, small shows, labels and zines. Especially, consider getting involved.

See you around!

- Philipp, Andreas, Flip, Andy and Christian"

Light Your Anchor

All these days are dead

Sad news from the LIGHT YOUR ANCHOR camp: "Franz Kafka once said "Roads grow out of going them" and our time has come to leave this path. We've reached the point where we don't see any progress for us in this band. And what's mankind without evolution!?

The last couple of month been pretty hard for us. Not being able to play shows with all members and as a full band because of disease was very frustrating for everyone. Also our future plans are drifting apart. Anyways we had great years and met a lot of amazing people on this journey. People we call our friends and family now. We traveled a lot and been to places we've never thought we would ever be able to go. Played awesome show with a lot of positive energy and love given us from the crowd. The most important thing for us is: We go as friends, we go as a gang. That's why there will be one last EP/DVD release and a final tour! Until then, we would like to thank everyone who has been involved with Light Your Anchor in any way. Labels, Bookers, Promoters and so on. We will miss you. Thanks to everyone who ever bought a ticket, a record, represented our merch on the street and of course for the sing a longs the stage dives and the sweat! We love you all <3"

Better go and see these guys during their last ever tour!

are "HOPESICK"

After LIGHT YOUR ANCHOR released their first single "FALL & STAND", we are really looking forward to the release of their debut "HOPESICK", which will be out June 14, and we do hope you are as excited as we are! This album literally teems with pure energy and vitality! It's anthemic, fast pitched, ultra heavy and saccharine melodic at the same time. Aljoscha Sieg (Pitchback Studios) endowed "Hopesick" with a massive sound, shaping this aspiring new hardcore band's unique vision of tough yet tuneful music.

The proof of our excitement can be found in our store which has been complemented with some fresh pre-order packages, available in different sizes and colors. So head over to our store, pick your "fashion" and be the first to hear what LIGHT YOUR ANCHOR is all about...
