The Beatsteaks confirm Deconstruction and release ‘Hand in Hand’

Having written new songs throughout summer 2003 the Beatsteaks embarked on a little studio tour of Berlin on October 3, recording 12 songs in four different studios. Producer, MOSES SCHNEIDER, forced the band to record live. The highlight of the operation was a gig at Berlin’s Knaack Club, where the recordings were completed under the watchful eyes of invited friends and family. Subsequently, PETER SCHMIDT (BlackPete) faced the difficult task of putting things back onto the rails again in the mix!

Released earlier this year via Epitaph, SMACK SMASH refects the best of what the band have to offer ­ opening with BIG ATTACK, the album gets right down to business with the loud guitar riffs of VISION. Whilst AIN’T COMPLAINING, HAND IN HAND and I DON’T CARE AS LONG AS YOU SING show how the band can meld their rock heritage with more pop sesibilities. Naturally, EVERYTHING is about love and HELLO JOE is dedicated to Joe Strummer!.
