The Other is considered to be Europe’s most famous Horrorpunk-Band, with a history of six successfull albums and gigs at some of the biggest Alternative-Festivals in Europe, like Wacken Open Air, Mera Luna, Summer Breeze, With Full Force Festival, Amphi Festival, Force Attack, Wave Gotik Treffen, Endless Summer, Ruhrpott Rodeo and the Weekend of Horrors. Shows with Alice Cooper, Bela B. (of Germany’s Punk-Rock superstars Die Ärzte), the 69 Eyes, The Cult, Ignite and tours with Misfits, The Damned, Balzac and Wednesday 13 added to the success of the Horror-fourpiece. The band played endlessly all over Europe, toured the United States of America, England and played shows Ireland and Moscow.
All scene-magazines covered The Other, even the daily- and yellow-press wrote about the band and their provocing videoclip with pornstar Leonie Saint. The band was even extensively featured on SAT1, MTV Masters and on the French-German cultural TV-channel ARTE („Tracks“).
The Other’s first comic-book – „Tales From The Other“ was also a big success and the second part of the series was published by the big publisher Panini (Marvel, DC, Star Wars, Simpsons etc.)
After leaving their own record-label Fiendforce Records in 2009 the band recorded the first album „New Blood“ for the well-known rock-label Steamhammer/SPV (Type O Negative, Moonspell, Kreator, Judas Priest, Biohazard, etc.) and has since released two successors on the label.
