The Lamplighters have evolved into a beast to behold

The Lamplighters prove that there’s more to German music than oompah bands. They’ve grown and evolved quite a lot in their relatively short existence, moving from somewhat sloppy pop-punk on the Ramones side of the spectrum, to something more in the vein of Hot Water Music or Against Me. They’ve switched from singing in German to singing in English, and the vocals are now gruff and powerful. The Lamplighters today can hold their own with any band out there, from America or Europe. So get ready to push forward toward the stage and pump your fists!
