The Electric Family

GER | progressive rock, country rock, krautrock, punk rock, folk rock

Founded by Tom " The Perc " Redecker in Bremen in 1996, the project has always seen itself as a multi-musical group that knows no boundaries and seems to feel at home in every genre, whether progressive, psychedelic, country rock, kraut rock, punk or folk rock. Such exciting challenges call for musical comrades, and so it is not surprising that numerous musicians from bands as diverse as Amon Düül II, Die Ärzte, Grobschnitt, Boa's Voodoo Club, Extrabreit, Lokomotive Kreuzberg, Pankow, Rockhaus, Mojo Club, Mandragora Lightshow Society, Emsland Hillbillies, Embryo, Dissidenten, The Convent, Goethes Erben - to name just a few - joined the band in the studio and on stage.

After the album releases Royal Hunt (2009) and Terra Circus (2017), which was toured again after a long absence from the stage, The Electric Family went back into the studios in 2019 to record their 6th studio album for Sireena Records. In addition to the Bremen core of Tom  The Perc Redecker, Rolf Kirschbaum, Harry Payuta, Anders Becker and Steff Ulrich brought together over a dozen musicians in the studio, including top-class artists such as Roman Bunka (Embryo), Marlon Klein (Dissidenten), Rolf Möller (Extrabreit), Milla Kapolke (Grobschnitt), and Jojo Brand (The Convent).

The first musical footprint was already at the beginning of 2020 with the single What Is In Your Head, Fred , which was played up and down on alternative radio stations!

The new album " Echoes Don't Lie " was released on CD & LP in September 2020 and was a huge press success from the start, both in Germany and in neighboring countries. The " Echoes Don't Lie " tour, which the musicians had been really looking forward to, booked for October 2020, unfortunately fell victim to the well-known Covid 19 epidemic and had to be postponed completely to a later date. Instead, the family went straight back into the studio to start working on the sequel to " Echoes Don't Lie " . You can look forward to a lot of surprise guests again!
