THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Die Toten Hosen are one of Germany’s most successful and famous bands. With more than 24 albums published, the punk veterans can look back on nearly 40 years of band history. They formed in 1982 and celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2012 with the release of their 15th studio album Ballast Der Republik.
As its title suggests, Learning English, Lesson 3: Mersey Beat! The Sound of Liverpool is their third in a series of nostalgic English-language cover albums. Moving beyond from the punk-centric sounds of the first two instalments, Lesson 3 features a slate of British Invasion and Merseybeat classics by the likes of Swinging Blue Jeans, The Searchers, Gerry & The Pacemakers and more.”
