26.04.2016 - New video and single "Trumpoline"

“Fuck demagogy!”, says singer/guitarist Rocco Ostermann from the band Donnerwetter rooted in the Arnhem/Nijmegen region of The Netherlands.

The band has made the music video ‘Trumpoline’ together with filmmaker Al Hajem and director Lotte Rosier to emphasize this quote. Today this video and the accompanying song will premiere.

“Donald Trump’s leap to the American presidency seems to me as the setting of a James Bond film which ending may be the worst you’ve ever seen”, says lyricist Ostermann.

The song’s final sentence is: “Tell me: do you want to jump the Trumpoline?” The members of the band Donnerwetter hope to hear an absolute “NO!” from the American voter to this question. “Journalists and artists can play an important role in unmasking demagogues and populists, and this is wat we contribute”, says Rocco. The fact that the actor in the video has a slight resemblance to a known blonde Dutch politician is a very pleasant coincidence.

‘Trumpoline’ is taken from the Donnerwetter album ‘Pavlov Beauty Saloon’ which will be released on the 13th of May through Butler Records / Bertus Distribution. On the 14th of May the first edition of Donnerwetter Day –festival will take place in Luxor Live, Arnhem (NL).

“Each show we play really feels like the devil is chasing us”, says Rocco Ostermann. And so the band has sent an invitation to Donald Trump for the festival.
