Aloha, fellow Jackalope Riders!
Big news: In an unexpected turn of events, your favorite Fuzzfiends (that’s us [we hope]) will hit the stage at the legendary Wacken Open Air this year! We repeat: Wacken Open Air. W:O:A. Wacken. WACKEN.
“It is currently considered the biggest heavy-metal festival in the world” – Wikipedia
Yupp that’s the one. So yeah. Guess this is happening then. How awesome is this. Can’t begin to describe. Better get to rehearsing now, hehehe.
See you on the road, people!
P.S.: They have a beer-pipeline!!!
Oh, sweet baby Beermachine. Jack is back!
We’ve come a long way since we first unleashed Return Of The Jackalope onto the masses (you, that is) and we couldn’t be prouder to release it once more via Ripple Music, one of the world’s most involved heavy rock labels and based in the heart of California.
But this isn’t merely a measly re-issue – nay. We’ve revamped our firstborn with a brand-new cover artwork by our good friend and renowned illustrator Artur Bäcker and we’ve also (finally!) put it on wax. Yes, you heard right: Your favorite Plainride record is now actually a record. On vinyl. 2x 180g of it to be perfectly candid. Stuffed to the brim with bonus material. It’s a beast.
We know you want one. Here’s where you can get your hands on it:
Ripple Music (Recommended for US- and Non-EU Customers): http://www.ripplemusic.bigcartel.com/…/plainride-return-of-…
On this very website: http://plainri.de/product/rotj_vinyl_lp_black/

We’re also back on Spotify, iTunes, and all these other places.
Now get out there and spread the fuzz! ⚡️
Heads up, Fuzzalopes!
It’s been a while since we attempted shooting a music video and – as some of you may remember – it didn’t end well for our beloved Fabe. On this day however, we’re proud to tell you that the Plaintrain prevailed at last and finally managed to ban some of our shenanigans on tape for you.
Ladies and Gentlejacks, we give you: Warpdrive!
This bad motherfuzzer of a video was planned, shot, directed & edited by and together with our good friends at Kreativrudel – Bonn’s most badass creative agency! We raise our horns to you!
The guys from Deaf Forever were kind enough to lend us their website for our vile purposes. So head over here to check out our brand new vid!
To top things off, here’s a bunch of GIFs from the video we put together for you to use when- and wherever you deem it applicable.
Cheers & FUZZ ON!
This is it.
As of today, we’re unleashing Return Of The Jackalope on the world and we’re a proud ass bunch as you can see on this totally real and physically accurate picture!
You can now find our album pretty much anywhere on the internet (any service that’s not already covered should follow in the next few hours or so) but if you wanna do us a favor, go get it on Bandcamp here.
We’d like to express our utmost gratitude to all the marvelous people, who have helped us make this happen: Andrew, The Jackalope, Franz Abendroth, Artur Bäcker, Sophie Holtz, Timon Menge, Sven Röbel, Andy Seibt, Szymon Swoboda and Saimon Galus, our parents, pets and roommates, our van, all the gallons of beer that were consumed during the process of this release and last but not least all of you magnificent bastards out there!
Now bask in the fuzziness of the Jackalope and GO SPREAD THE ROCK!
Plainride Over & Out
Honored disciples of the Jackalope!
For the first time ever we’re giving you a brand new song off the upcoming album: Devil At Your Heels is now streaming via acclaimed American Stoner Blog The Obelisk and comes with a high velocity video featuring a bunch of the great press quotes we received thus far. All the while you’re rockin’ out to the new track, make sure to also read the great article, which JJ from The Obelisk wrote and can be found here.
This premiere also marks the official start of our album preorder via Lo-Fi Merchandise and Ozium Records. Be one of the first to grab a copy, we promise you won’t regret it!
