We Butter The Bread With Butter


Listen to Meine Brille

WE BUTTER THE BREAD WITH BUTTER have spent the last few years homing their sound fusing together the industrial and metalcore genres alongside glam-rock and pop, bound together through their unique live performance and particular imagery. Aspiring to acts such as Bullet for my Valentine, Rammstein, Bring Me The Horizon but also Muse and Radiohead and Thirty Seconds To Mars the band have set out to merge these influences together creating a sound of their own.
Guitarist Marcel Neumann explains the reasoning behind the ‘quirky’ name given the band’s choice in sound and why it was chosen as a means to create an image of ‘normality’. “We wanted to have a name that actually describes a very normal thing in life - it's like the idea of a revolution against everything evil in this kind of music. We love the emotion of this heavy sound, but not everything has to be depicted as dead, rotten and dark”.
Having already shared the stage with the likes of Slipknot, A Day To Remember, Caliban and Crossfaith as well as festivals like Rock Am Ring, Wacken, Novarock, Tuska or Groezrock the band have really stepped into their comfort zone from a live perspective developing a stage presence that can match this of their peers.

WE BUTTER THE BREAD WITH BUTTER are a band who are very aware that their image, lighting and stage FX play a big part in their musical output and believe this helps encapsulate the audience. “Our music wouldn't be the same without it”, continues Marcel, “even though this is much more expensive for us - we would rather be poor in a stadium full of flames and lights instead of rich in clubs with nothing than our instruments”.

However this does on occasion cause slight problems for the band like the time they found themselves stopped at Germany’s border control for being a tonne over-weight in their van. Luckily this time around they were able to hire another van to cater for the added equipment. Still, a small price to pay for the resulting live vision the band wishes to take with them on tour.
With their third record "Goldkinder" released through BMG Chrysalis the band recently completed their first US tour successfully. Loosely translated into English as ‘Children of Gold’, the album was mixed by Stefan Glaumann (Rammstein, Apocalyptica, Within Temptation).
