22 07 09 >

13 07 09 >



If it hasn´t caught your attention we did a video for "Warriors" months ago – available here.

Pre-production for the forthcoming fifth album has also begun. A lot of new ideas has come to life and things are shaping up really well. Eventhough we´re still in the very early stages we´re trying new things and it feels really cool. Still too early to give you an exact idea on the whole thing but it will be more of everything we´ll promise. No release date yet but within the next month we´ll be more specific when the next album expect to surface.

We´ll be also playing som festivals around Europe. Next up is 2 shows in Germany: Krach Am See in Erkner (July 17) and Baden In Blut in Loerrach July 18) – be there.

Lights, Camera, Revolution...

News from the RAUNCHY camp. Two weeks ago we filmed a video for "Warriors" with award winning director Andreas Krohn and his fantastic crew. Since we haven´t done any official musicvideo since the "Watch Out" video years ago we wanted to make something really cool with the band playing but with a storyline attached to it - below is a small diary

Friday:
After picking up the van and a (shitty) PA System at Aage we met at our (shitty) rehearsal room at 19 to load our gear and drive to the old TV BYEN in Soeborg to meet with instructor Andreas Krohn and his crew. We arrived at the same time as our endorser MUSIKPARTNER who was in charge of delivering 20 guitar cabinets - all just for looks HE HE. Maybe it´s an old cliché with a huge guitarwall but it looks really cool no mather what. After unloading our gear and unpacking all the cabinets we quickly put up the gear in order to be all set for
some serious neck-breaking action early next morning.

Saturday:
As I (Lars) had the van I picked up Kasper and Jesper Tilsted in order to be on the set as sheduled. When we arrived everything was ready and set to go and the huge guitarwall was positioned in a V-shape - very cool. After consuming coffee, some fruit and bread with "paalaegschokolade" everybody was in the "make-up" chair trying to look as "young" and fresh as possible - hard job ;-) Around 10.30 we began to shoot the first performance parts but as the PA we borrowed the night before was way too shitty for blasting through the sound of Morten´s drums we had to get a new PA. 1 hour later, our man Rasmus (Musikpartner) came with a kick-ass PA system and everything was in it´s right place and we were ready to rock again. While waiting for the new PA we thought it would be a great idea to start the morning with some Vodka, Jägermeister and Whiskey just to get in the right mood for being silly on the set.

WOW... once again alcohol seems to be a saviour and we were on fire. After playing the song only 3 times Jesper, Jesper and I had blood all over our fingers and blood was dripping from our fingers as we´ve been beating so hard on our guitars - that´s metal. After a couple of hours we had a nice lunch and guess what.. BOOZE. To spice up things we went to the local grocery store to get some beers in order to be as "fit" as possible for the next performance part.

Our performance parts was divided into two different set-ups. A part where you see our ugly mugs and another part which shows the band performing in silouettes - it will turn out very cool Andreas assured ;-) Ah.. did I mention that Kasper had this "camera-body-suit-kind-of-thing" attached to his body?? Well, after only 10 minutes he managed to break this nice invention but the show had to go on. After several takes Andreas was as happy as he could be and we were DONE!!! What better way to celebrate this than to have another beer.

Sunday:
We weren´t supposed to be in front of the camera this day but Kasper was up for a little bit of camera action early in the morning. With his hair set back as a very young Jack Nicholsen he did his thing quiet and professional. Around noon we met at this club in Copenhagen where part of the story was to be filmed. Personally I was blown away by all the people and the activity at the location. I don´t want to reveal too much about the video other than it´s going to be very COOL so you´ll have to wait a few weeks. Hey wait a minute; Dina Jewel (you might know her guys) has a small role in the video so maybe that will get you excited HE HE ;-) Pictures from the videoshoot HERE!!

Back after a mindblowing second weekend of the Headbangers Ball Tour. Due to work Kasper had to cancel his appearance with us yesterday at Studenterhuset, Aalborg. As we didn´t want to cancel our show we asked our good friends René "Mondeo/Jeg kører lige efter billig benzin" & Mikkel (Mercenary), Jacob Bredahl (Last Mile) & Laurits (Last Mile) to do the vocal job and DAMN they did great.

12 04 08 >

Heyyyyy Folks.Time for some updates since it has been ages since we did the last one. The new album is all done so now you only have to wait for the new album to hit the streets.

The album will see the light of day on June 16 exclusively for Denmark (...watch out for a release party on june 14 at Lades in Copenhagen). European release will be june 30 and a US release will be july 7.

Kasper is truely and deeply sorry he´s going to sit out these dates. So who´s going do stand-in for Kasper? We´ve asked a good friend named Morten Kruger. Kruger is the mainman screaming his lungs out in the danish metalact MEVADIO (go check ´em out www.mevadio.com - gooood stuff)

A video for "Phantoms" of the Death Pop Romance album was filmed at the sold out show on december 2 2007 at Store VEGA, Copenhagen Denmark and will soon be ready for viewing - more on that later.

Time again for some news. So far 9 songs have taken it´s final form in our writing process and we still continue to optimize and rearrange various parts here and there in the pursuit to make things as good as possible. We´ve also started to record rythmguitar and it feels good to be ahead of time for once.

We´re also psyched and VERY proud now to be endorsed be SCHECTER guitars. These fine kick-ass guitars will be a part of the future sound in RAUNCHY.

We´ve changed the navigation menu a bit and created a new FORUM as the old fucker simply got spammed (thanks Emil - you rule). Please sign up and become a member.Pictures and updates from the writing process will be posted in the forum very soon.

Expect a release around april/may 2008.

08 12 06 >

Once again time for an update. Just finished the The Danish Dynamite tour and it was an absolutely killer tour - so many good impressions and memories. Unfortunately the gig in Vienna was cancelled which was beyond our control - nevertheless we had a day off and watched our buddies in HateSphere play with Exodus - great fun & heavy drinking. We promise to be back in Vienna in 2007 ...don´t despair.

As people experinced on the DD tour we had some stand-ins with us as Jeppe, Jesper, & Jesper couldn´t do this tour. We want to thank our 2 stand-ins: Lars Mayland for doing an incredible job on the guitar and Allan Tvedebrink for playing a killer bass - you guys rule - RESPECT :-) Also a big thank you goes out to: Mads Lydpik (great sound) Tue Bayer (Tue Bayer har fejlet igen) Sarah (over-the-top-tourmanager) Varpi (best merchgirl out there) HateSphere & Volbeat for great times and of course all you crazy bangers who supported us.

Hello all good people out there. It´s been long time since we´ve been updating our website, but we just wanted to let you know that we´re still alive and very well. ;-) There has been a lot of questions concerning our next album and who will release our future material. Right now we cannot reveal anything but we are in contact with different people so stay tuned and don´t worry....
We have bought ourselves a nice MAC and so far we have recorded guitar and drums for two songs. It´s a slow process but within a month we expect to have several more songs recorded for a demo.

We also want to thank the great audience at Studenterhuset, Aalborg for a great and powerful evening this past weekend. Also a big FUCK YEAH to:

- VOLBEAT (....always nice to play with you lads RESPECT !!)
- Jacob Bredahl/HateSphere (...for screaming his lungs out on "Drive")
- Mike, Kral, Martin/Mercenary (...for singing backing vocals on "Confusion Bay".
- Kenneth (...our handsome driver)
- Jesper "BIKER" Pingel (... roadie number 1 YEAH "fee kagemand")
- Lars Mayland (... our dedicated soundengineer)

Soon we will launch a new site and by that time we will also have our forum fixed. Next up will be gigs in Odense (DK) and Lyngby (DK) this coming weekend so we hope to see some crazy mutha´fuckers around. Stay tuned as we are going to give you updates on our situation.


26 01 05 >

We´re sorry to inform you that the gig at Rock Café in Tallinn, Estonia this coming saturday has been cancelled. The cancellation is beyond our control and we´re deeply sorry that we can´t play for our Estonian fans. DAMN !!

Other news:

RAUNCHY is looking for a new record company !!!

We have to inform you that RAUNCHY is no longer assoiciated with Nuclear Blast Records. We would like to thank Nuclear Blast Records for their work regarding our two albums. No further comments will be available.

We are now looking forward to be working with another record company, who believes in RAUNCHY, and who has the right capacity, understanding, and musical dedication to take care of our music. If everything falls into place within the coming months, our third »baby« will see the light of day before Christmas or early spring next year.

Everything continues as scheduled and promised.


12 01 05 >

Happy new year folks ! We are back in buisness and have started to rehearse again (damn great). Things are starting to shape and so far we have 8 songs.
In the next months we´re going to do some pre-recordings in our rehearsal room where we will add vocal, electronics, keys etc. etc.

A lot of people have been asking us what the next record is going to sound like. Well... that´s a tuff one ;-) All we can say is that it sounds like...ehm RAUNCHY - expect some new things and a lot of melody. In other words it´s going to be: Brutal, melodic, fresh, and a FUCKING heavy-monster.

As stated before we´re teaming up with Mr. Jacob Hansen at his beautiful studio in the middle of nowhere ;-) This time we are going to incorporate Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, ILL DISPOSED, CATARACT, MNEMIC etc. etc.) for the mixing part of our yet untitled 3rd album.

Concerning the lyrics on the next album read what singer Kasper has to say:

"As I read a lot of poetry in relation to my work, I have a natural interest in writing lyrics that deal with other things than pussy and whiskey - I like the lyrics on VN and CB because they have a sense of honest humour attached to them and it really generates street credibility in a fuck-off-kind of way: That's very cool in my opinion...The lyrics on the next album are going to be more dark, existentialistic and related to classic themes such as life/death/love/hate... Some will be pure fiction, some will be related to my own life."

Forthcoming gigs:

22 Jan. - THE ROCK, Copenhagen, DK.
29 Jan. - ROCK CAFE, Tallinn, Estonia.
