After ten studio albums and a range of live performances, spanning from acoustic concerts with a prepared piano, and shows as a band with classical instruments and synthesizer park, to an orchestra tour with its highlight at the Alte Oper Frankfurt in front of 2,500 people, Deine Lakaien are celebrating their anniversary with a singular retrospective.

“Welcome to Crystal Palace”, Alexander sings inviting “all of you dreamers”. If you accept that invitation, you will indeed feel as if sharing dreams with Alexander and Ernst. “Crystal Palace” is of an intense intimacy never reached on a “Deine Lakaien” album before
Finally it has happened: The new Helium Vola Album, which Ernst Horn announced more than a year ago, has been released. This delay is due to the fact that our beloved composer cannot work without a concept not matter how hard he tries. Thus, the album is not called “Quodlibet” (Lat. “as you like”) anymore but “Wohin?” (“Where to?”). And it truly is kind of a situation of life analysis with a question mark remaining at the end.
There it is, finally, the new Helium Vola Album “Für Euch, die Ihr liebt”, which we have awaited so impatiently. And here I wrote down my first impressions. Before I start to go into the individual songs, let me summarize by saying it is “WOW”, this album is just marvellous.
