From the remains of several local punk- and hardcorebands, Northern-Germany-based Tackleberry was formed in the late summer of 2004. Eager to get back on stage, the four kids wrote a dozen songs at full tilt, and managed to play a show with Amulet, after having rehearsed for only 2 months. By that time, the first Demo-Cd called “…and the losers win it all some day…“ had also been recorded. Soon after that, HerrOng filled the vacant second guitar-player spot. The second guitar-player is currently filled by Aiko/The Force Within.
Tackleberry combines elements of modern and old-school Hardcore, adds a punkrock-edge and -attitude and still isn't afraid of combining this with other styles. Positive, fast, without superfluous macho-bullshit! Dealing rather with personal than political issues, the lyrics still contain lots of social criticism, often presented in a somewhat satirical way.
After playing Shows all over Europe, including a tour in Russia, Tackleberry recorded 7 songs which were released on 2 Split-CDs. The first CD is a Split with the russian band cut'n'run and was released with the help of the russian label "Karma Mira Records". The second version of the CD contained 5 Songs by their friends The Force Within from Bonn and was ready to be sold in summer 2006.
Tackleberry continued touring and played shows with bands like Good Clean Fun.
The band hit the Studio in the beginning of 2007 to preproduce an upcoming full length album.
