THE SPLASHDOWNS THE SPLASHDOWNS - eine musikgewordene Hommage an das NASA Bodenpersonal der Apollo Missionen – nimmt Euch mit mitreißendem Modernist Instro Surf und Fuzzguitar Rock‘n‘Roll, raffiniert gespickt mit Original-NASA-Soundschnippseln und spannenden Raumfahrt-Visuals auf eine Reise zum Mond.

Dringt gemeinsam mit THE SPLASHDOWNS auf ihrem neuem Flugplan und dem brandneuen, fünften Album „Rocket Tales“ (Release 2017 bei Double Crown Records / USA) kühn dorthin vor, wo noch nie eine Surfrock-Band zuvor gewesen ist.

See for a first impression of the kinds of visuals we can bring along.

(Hamburg, Germany)
„I am, and ever will be, a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer.“
Neil Armstrong.

When The Splashdowns are not devising missions to the moon, inventing fantastic new technology or meddling with forces they couldn’t possibly understand, they can be found standing on a stage somewhere in front of an ecstatic audience grinding axes and thumping tubs.

Formed in 1999, The Splashdowns is a unique musical tribute to NASA’s ground staff during the era of the Apollo missions. The four-piece instro-combo, based in Hamburg, Germany has its musical roots planted firmly in the 60’s surf-garage sound spiced up with a potent dose of rock & roll.

A strategic use of drums, bass and twin lead guitars combined with a finely balanced thrust-to-weight ratio of The Ventures, The Tornados and Throbbing Gristle produces dangerous pogo-oscillations in every crowd.

The set consists of 100% original compositions ranging from exciting high-octane numbers to masterful atmospheric anthems. The band’s music has been featured in film and television and each of the 4 commercial releases has been supported by tours throughout Germany and beyond. After a partial hiatus last year, the band is back in 2016 with a fantastic new bass player and yet another genre-defining album.
