Official Alphaville Chat Topic

As much as I understand the frustration for delays (I share it), personally I feel that this discussion goes way too far.

Just a short side note about "no news":
- photo session scheduled
- first single selected, "heartbreak city"
- video production for single scheduled and location booked (place where BIJ was shot)

When Gold gave you dates (might not have been a clever idea IMHO) that weren't met in the past, as far as I know him, he believed they would be absolutely real. Nevertheless, he's an artist not a car mechanic. Commercial optimized decisions have never been a flag for Alphaville, as we observed.

Despite the fact that he's creating music in an exploratory way (like he always did), the past years were marked by passed away friends, family members, colleagues and idols. As he said, he's not the same person anymore.
I strongly assume that these things made him change perspectives and influenced his work and timings.

Personally I'm impressed and thankful that he still creates music - I never expected to be accompanied by Alphaville still in the year 2016 when it all started.

ps. car mechanics are great people and there's absolutely nothing wrong with them. They just serve as a placeholder here as they may in general work more timeframe and delivery oriented than (again in general) artists, who, as I believe, need way more time to discover, iterate and reflect.

Bon Voyage: I'll be back on this forum once the album is out, until then reading these comments just frustrates me more than the wait for the release.
Freedom of speech for everyone, so here's my 5 cent, now bash me. I have nothing to add.
Over and out.

I agree 100% Tobi :)

As much as I hate censorship at the Dreamroom, sometimes I wonder if we allow too much. There's no reason to be pissed after this chat, I actually think we got some good news, single, video, album and a releaseparty, all in 2016, great, what else can we ask for

I have just been meaning to express how i'm feeling after that chat. I have been trying not to hurt anybody ( if somebody is feeling bad - i'm sorry). Here is my conclusion - it would have been better not to announce anything before it's not officialy booked and scheduled - for both sides. There would have been no pressure. With all my great respect to Marian, especially considering all those horrible things he faced, he didn't need to promise us anything. We would have understood for sure. But what he's doing is probably frustrating for us and for himself either. He could have said just "I feel bad, i have lost so much, give me a break with that". And now we don't know what we are waiting for. I think it's better to stop and be silent till we hear the single in radio. Sorry if I have said too much - maybe I'm overreacting. It's nothing personal, I appreciate what you have done Shapeseven, I appreciate that AV have great fans and I would just like everyone to be satisfied - but it's impossible.
Have a nice day

I would rather have some news than no news, I don't get it. Yes, it's been years in the planning, so what? Marian was not satisfied, now he is, great :)

In 2016 we get:

Single
Video
Album
Releaseparty

And the tour continues, what else do we need

We could make a duplicity of Alphaville, but cloning is not yet at point

First of all sorry for using the words no news yesterday.
There was news.
I just missed a release date on the chat thats why I am disappointed(I am just afraid that without a releasedate we will get more delays)In this case I am hoping I am wrong and we have a single release in Aug-Sep and the album in Sep-Oct but the future will tell

Seven and Wii,You are right, the discussion has gone to far.
In the end I Think we all want almost the same thing with Alphaville and hopefully they
stay active for several years

I believe when Marian and Claudia asked for this chat event, if was to announce the news that we WILL get a new album and more in 2016, so it must be a close to confirmed as it can be...
