Alcatraz Line up: 2022
April Art is an exciting and attractive alternative/modern rock band paired with metalcore and punk influences. Based in Germany and formed in 2014 the quartet has been making a name for themselves in Central Hessen and beyond with their hard-driving melodic sound and powerful, charismatic live performances. The focus is definitely on the rough and pithy vocals of front woman Lisa-Marie Watz. On June 17th, 2022 April Art will release their new album ‘Pokerface’ on their own. Despite various requests from record companies, April Art want to release their album without a label. And this time the band decided not to hire an external producer and gave the job to their drummer Ben Juelg. The result: hard, edgy and melodic songs, full of energy and passion and 100% April Art. As frontwoman Lisa says: “The songs are made for the here and now, further partners would only have slowed us down. Even if it’s difficult times, the fans are waiting for new music”…that’s April Art, loud, rebellious, idiosyncratic and very, very positive! Currently we need artists who deal with the present and at the same time do their thing, go outside and sweep us away with their positive spirit. Thus, April Art can confidently be placed in the category “Beacon of Hope No. 1 for a heavily insecure scene”.
