»Der Rote Reiter« (engl.: »The Red Rider«), the tenth studio album of DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER will be released August 25th, 2017.
Today, the band has launched the official lyric video of "Wir Sind Zurück" here:
DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER states:
"After a long journey through Thailand, Cambodia and Japan, we met for the first time again in the summer of 2016. After an exuberant party, we went to the rehearsal room in the middle of the night to jam together. It was pure magic. "We are back" was born in this incredible session and from that day on we knew that there would be a new album. The song has everything that makes a real REITER song: joy, passion and tempo. He is the first song we wrote for Der Rote Reiter and there could be no other opener than it. We love this song, it means a lot to us."

Vocalist Fuchs, who also created the stunning artwork for the last album, has created the cover artwork for the upcoming album, which you can see above. The template for the artwork is based on a wooden carving that Fuchs created in 2016. You can find the wooden carving on Fuchs’ website, here: www.fuchsstellung.de
