Rock'n'roll, handmade and authentic - that's what The Baseballs are made of. Sam, Digger and Basti and their band have been rockin'n'rollin' around Europe since 2007. The first two albums, "Strike" (2009) and "Strings'n'Stripes" (2011) sold a total of over one million albums and the guys held positions in the European charts for weeks: ten Top 10 positions, of these four #1 spots in Finland, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland, earning various awards (4x platinum in Finland, double platinum in Switzerland, platinum in Sweden, Norway and Holland, gold in Germany, Austria and the UK).
The Baseballs celebrated their European successes with extensive European tours and at international festivals. In 2011 this climaxed in their winning the European Border Breakers Award and the German Echo Award for The Most Successful Act Abroad.
Following the release of the DVD "Strings'n'Stripes Live" (2012) and "Good Ol' Christmas" (2012), Sam, Digger and Basti spent 2013 concentrating on their fourth studio album. Parallel to songwriting and studio productions they couldn't live without doing concerts, of course. The season opened in May in Russia and ended in October with two shows in Australia.
And now, on March 28, 2014, the time has come for a new album. The Baseballs proudly present "Game Day"! With hearts still beating to the rhythm of rock'n'roll. The Baseballs expertly combine the best of contemporary sounds with the ingredients of the Fifties and Sixties. But in contrast to the previous albums, this time the focus is on their own compositions in addition to selected cover songs.
"The decision to mainly record compositions of our own on 'Game Day' was for us the logical next step. Even before and during our time together as The Baseballs we all wrote songs. We started including our own songs in our live shows more frequently and noticed that the fans were just as interested in these songs as in our cover versions. Furthermore, we have experienced so much in the past seven years that it would have been a shame not to express some of these experiences in our songs.
With our last albums we could prove that rock'n'roll hasn't lost any of its timelessness. With 'Game Day' we take the next step and want to show people that we can also convey the good mood feeling of rock'n'roll with our own songs."
