Added the last two local press articles about the split of the band.

We ran an inventory of items available for purchase. You can check that at the updated merch page.
Most items remain available. Definetely out is the first 7". Few of the Split 7" with Hicktown Heroes turned up again. Buy or die!
No more CDR will be availabe. No 3SongsLeft and no Complete Recordings.
Shirts are in stock but depending on colour and size just very very limited. Sometimes just one single item left.
But, yeah, you can buy that shit. Do that or we throw it away. This takes space. And we may need that for future projects. :o)

We found the portugese people to be very friendly and inviting and say Thank You to all of them who came to the shows, liked or hated us, to the bands we played with, to everybody helping and serving us and especially to our enthusiastic tour-managers and booking-agents Fabulous Generation. Ana and Neil, we love you!

By the way we're considering covering the tour with pics and stuff on the Satanic Army site.

God saves the Stereo Satanics from being liked by Heavy-Rockers, haha).31.10.08: First review for Surrounded By Ghosts arrived. Watch out for more reviews at lotsa mags the next months.

15.10.08: If you wanna subscribe to the Satanic Army, do it now. Time runs out shortly. Packages are complete and available. So, you'd get your bargain immediately.

3.9.08: Hey folks: There's still time to get caught up with the Satanic Army Phase III. Why don't register now? You can look back on 9 months of the birth of an album. There are 6 downloads of early song-versions and songs that will not appear on the album. You will see videos of the band in the recording-studio, both playing and kidding. You can read a studio blog and hear unmastered song-versions besides of two songs just like they will appear on the album. NOW!
What you'll get in the end is the final album, all the crap we did in the meantime and provided for download (and more) on a CDR with cover. Satanic Army only buttons and this is just 20 Euros.

20.8.08: Now it's for sure: The new album "Surrounded By Ghosts" will be out on 14th November on Fading Ways Records.
We're proud to be part of this cool and real independent collective led by good friend Neil Leyton.

The recordings are now in the mastering-process.

14.5.08: Back from recording the album. Next is to work out the cover and book the tour to promote the record. This will be a difficult task as it nearly not possible to get any shows in Germany as an unknown band. At least if you're not able to have 4 persons 24 hours a day to phone or mail around. We're trying our best. If anyone can help here in anyway .. we'd be glad for anything.

2.5.08: We're off to record the new album next week. There'll be 15 new songs, some of them to be heard on our last live-shows, some of them pre-heard in rough live- or rehearsal-versions at the Satanic Army website, most of them absolutely new.

Satanic Army Phase II is closed, now!

"Whole Lotta Nothin'" appears on

Satanic Army extras for the new album are:

  • "Satanic Diaries" (a DVD with the film by Boris Retzlaff)
  • 2 Satanic Army-only buttons

Found some pics from a show last year in Gomadingen. Look at this!

There's a short interview on OpenBeats which includes the first snippets of some songs of "Whole Lotta Nothin'". We'll added two songs in the discography-section and on our MySpace-site.

Record-Release-Party will be on 26th AND 27th May. There'll be different supports on each night, different live sets by the Satanics and some other party specials, we'll announce later.

New album is in the can. It will be out on 25th May 2007, called "Whole Lotta Nothin'".
It took us two and a half day to record and one single day to mix that shit down. We promise a piece of pure and vibrating, stripped to flesh and bone, punk music, that will touch you in it's bareness and fragility, musically as lyrically. Lets see if you're able to divide the humor in it from the pain.
Musically there'll be quite a few new hints that will astonish you.
There'll be a Satanic Army again. It starts on 10th March. Stay tune to get some new thrilling extras with your record!!!

We cancelled the gig of 24th Feb in Coburg. Sorry, it would've made us loose too much money which we need for the recording-session of the new album which will be between 25th and 28th Feb!!

New record to be released in May 07

2006 was by far the busiest year for us although many people didn't really reckognized that. Now we're through with it and started writing new songs after 3 months without a rehearsal room. Lotsa ideas have to burst out and in Feb 07 we booked the recording studio for the follow up to Pirate Love!!!

The Pirate Love CD is now in its first repressing. Thank you for buying it that much.
