What happened in 2012?
After the album "on/off" and three single publications in 2011 - among them "monokultur" which reached the top-ten of the DAC and GEWC in 2012 – at the end of 2012, !distain look back on three more singles, among them the DAC-top-15 and GEWC-top-ten hit „the 6th floor“, the dvd release "20th anniversary" and a tour which has been the most successful in the band’s history so far.

Even a track released as a b-side has become a little hit. "she's lost control" (People Theatre feat. !distain”) has jumped from position 15 on 2 on the “Radio Dark Dimension charts”. Besides that, !distain have finished a remix for the Ukrainian band Detstvo. More info will follow in 2013. We wish everybody all the best for a great new year 2013!
