Straftanz is an industrial band from Germany.
Comrades, Revolutionaries, Nominal Members,
on Friday the 13th of June Phase 1 of the Dancefloor Liberation Movement ends. With the Release of our Album "Forward Ever" Straftanz is going to set a landmark. This is not the goal of our efforts and this is not the end of our Action. It is merely a staging area for the great march to come. Since the weekend of Whitsun in Leipzig, we know that our campaign is not to be ignored any more. The know-it-alls are afraid now, because they know, their credibility is lost. They announced to come in order to see "who in the world wants to see THAT". They wanted to place their derisiveness and malice at us, but they did not get to see what they expected. They saw what we all showed them: The fire of the Future in a thousand Eyes! Angry Fists raised toward the ceiling! The Idiots they expected where nowhere to be seen. Now they know that they can not continue as they did, because now it is our turn.
Dance will no longer be vertical expression of horizontal desire. It will be for its own sake and nothing more. "Forward Ever" will bring the Soundtrack to that notion. The March towards the future is not to be done alone. We are not afraid, for giants are among us. Myk Jung of "The Fair Sex", Miland Petrozza of "Kreator" and Carsten Jacek with allowed us through their support to record an album as unique as our followers.
We see the world at its abyss. Despair has become a good that is easy to be sold, because it not only enables us to flee from our responsibility. It also is unjustified. Together we are better than that. We will once more give the Dancefloors shape and form, we will slash away the old plunder, drive the people of yesterday in their corner and remove the know-it-alls from a culture that is no longer their own.
Praise the Panic. Forward ever. Backward never.
