Following four studio albums and one live album, HVOB release their sixth album: TOO is an angry, tender, vulnerable, determined account of a generation’s search for life. The album explores extremes in concept, content and sound. It breaks with the tradition of releasing the entire album following the advance release of a number of singles. The eight tracks from TOO were released individually and sporadically. This way, the album grows into an eventual whole over a period of six months. Supporting the new album is a spring tour including shows in Munich, Berlin, Frankfurt, Cologn, Hamburg, Stuttgart, and Nuremberg. Want to win tickets to one of these dates?

TOO is both HVOB’s harshest and softest album to date. In terms of sound, Anna Müller and Paul Wallner explore a space of extremes between departure and retreat, between determination and self-doubt.
TOO is dedicated to the state of mind of a generation in search of inner and outer belonging: the album captures a life in the dichotomy of one’s own and other people’s expectations, in the feeling of not living up to these expectations, in renewed attempts to free oneself from these expectations.
