New single – “Feel What I Feel”

On 4th. April 2014, it will finally arrive – GOTTHARD will present the second Studio work with Nic Maeder : BANG!


In order to shorten the waiting time for this eagerly awaited album, we will present directly from the studio the first single (Digital download). With “Feel What I Feel” the band demonstrates once again, that strong guitar hooks and melodious songs can be presented together. Nic Maeder proves that he has found his place in the “Gotthard Family” and is indispensable with his qualities as a singer and songwriter.



“Feel What I Feel” is the perfect precursor for an album which abounds with pure love of music and confidence. A spellbinding mix of earthy rock and fresh at the same time and with some surprising arrows in its quiver. BANG! Simply Gotthard in 2014.


Digital Release: 31.01.2014





New Album “BANG!” will be released on 4th. April

The year starts with a BIG BANG! Rock fans can rejoice, because Gotthard will release the new album with the title “BANG!” In addition to Musikvertrieb in Switzerland, for the first time, we have Pias (the rest of the world) and Marquee Inc (Japan) as new distribution partners on board.
Musically, we can be pleased to have 100% Gotthard, since Leo Leoni and Charlie Bauerfeind are the production team for earthy hard rock, pure Gotthard spirit and wonderful rock melodies melding together.


“BANG!” began like its predecessor “Firebirth” - (number 1 in the Swiss charts, number 9 in the German) – in the band’s own Yellow House Studios in Lugano in autumn/winter 2013. It reproduces the earlier Gotthard times and transports them into 2014.

Mix engineer Ronald Prent is responsible for the topical and appropriate polish, as he mixed the new album. The Dutchman, who is at home in the famous Wisseloord Studios, has already presented his expertise in the albums “Lipservice” and “Domino Effect”. “We got to know him as unbelievably competent and tasteful”, said Leo Leoni. “You can see that he loves rock music and knows how to present the sound. He understood then straight away what we wanted and how we should sound. This time, he has shown us his expertise again.” No wonder, after all Prent has worked in the studio with bands such as the Scorpions, 3 Doors Down, Def Leppard and Within Temptation.

For singer Nic Maeder, “BANG!” is not only his second album with GOTTHARD, but also the convincing proof that he belongs in the band, that he has become one of them and his voice and his qualities as a songwriter are indispensable.


The fans and collectors are not the only ones to be happy: Apart from a standard jewel case, the album will be presented in a classy digipack version, with 2 bonus tracks and also on vinyl.
