Yes, we are still alive!

After a hiatus of nearly 5 years Rough Silk will be back in 2016 with the original members Herbert Hartmann ( drums, lead-vocals ) and Ferdy Doernberg ( slide guitars, keyboards, lead-vocals ), longtime guitarplayer Mike Mandel and the new member, Nikki Puppet-bassplayer Anke Doernberg.
The first 6 shows are already booked – the band is rehearsing – and the first new songs are written !!!
The new music as well as the songs chosen for the live set will be a giant step back to the roots of Rough Silk !
We call it “Artrock” – but in the end it’s only rock’n roll and we like it !!! Stay tuned !

New Album “The Good, the Bad & the Undead” out now !!!

Our new Rough Silk-album “The Good, the Bad & the Undead” has been released November the 2nd via Rebellion-Records! We are very happy with the result. It´s a bit more progressive but on the other hand heavier than the last one “A new beginning” but who liked that album will like the new one as well!!! The variety goes from hardcore/trash/metal/punkrock to jazz, folk, latin, fusion and singer/songwriter influences. It´s an album for open-minded people!
We made a video for the first single (online only!) “Who needs an enemy with a friend like you? (Loyalty)” – check it out!!!
