After almost 12 years, about 200 gigs in Germany and Europe, a handful of underestimated records, some overdoses, countless scars and after hanging around on every of the darkest corners of this continent and experiences under nearly every table, the Gumbabies decided to call it a day.
The last call, the final curtain. For good. This time’s for real.
Short and simple: Thank you for listening, for contributing, for participating, for simply being there in any possible way during the last decade of Gumpunk.
Remember: WE WERE THE GREATEST BY FAR, but any of you made a decent runner-up.
See you in the next life.
We finally released the last of three editions of the „Cogito ergo scum“ EP. This one comes with a very special silk-screen-X-ray Coverartwork, designed by Stay Gold Grafix (Vienna), printed by Senor Burns (Haidhausen). For further details and your ultimate visual experience simply ask your local radiologist for help and instructions (nobody ever said, this is gonna be easy, Punk!). This little piece of vinyl comes with the mentioned variant-cover, green wax, limited and handnumbered to 77 copies, lyricsheet, stickers, you name it. Get one soon, these are flying out fast for sure. Stay tuned for more breaking news during the next days.
The Gumbabies are proud to announce that the second edition of the Cogito ergo scum EP is out now. This ultra-rare collectors item on green vinyl is a 100% D.I.Y. Punk 7″. Lasercutted stencils designed by famous Stay Gold Grafix from Vienna, Xerox-copied covers, spraypaint in green and black, handfolded, handnumbered, handmade! Guess what, the 23 total copies are already sold out. But we have reserved two copies which will be sold directly via our homepage. Just drop us a line why exactly YOU deserve one of the records and get your very own copy for 10,-€ each. These copies are signed and stamped and the band itself decides weather you are worth to possess one or not. Good luck! Watch out for the upcoming third and last edition of 77 copies on green vinyl with a special silk-screen printed cover. Should be here around X-Mess.

Finally, news you can use to booze to!
Or snooze. Whichever way you choose:
First and most important: We are releasing our brand new baby “Cogito Ergo Scum” on Saturday, October 13th @ The Glocke, Munich!
Vinyl will be available in black, then later as well in various shades of green from almost neon bright shocking green to darkish green marble optic as well as variant covers for the sleeve, which means:
A BIG PART OF THE COPIES WILL BE TRULY UNIQUE ITEMS!
2: On the release night, as on every release party of ours, there’s gonna be great other bands on stage and especially a very outstanding special guest performance you don’t get like that every day. If everything works out the way we planned… eh-eh-eh…
3: There’s gonna be a whole bunch of shows this fall and winter, as well home in Munich as “abroad”. One homeshow each month left in 2012: record-release on October, 13th @ The Glocke, then on Saturday, November, 20th, we are proud to play the second night of the 20 years of MISSBRAUCH Festival @ The Feierwerk with lots of great bands (like Blut&Eisen, Cor, Volxverätzung) and on Friday, December 14th our annual X-Mess-Bash, this time together with Botox Combo @ 59:1!
4: Also, we’re getting on the road again. There’s already constantly more fixings rolling in and we set them up in the calendar as soon as they are fixed, so check back once in a while… or just switch on your computer and go online, you won’t escape us anyways. As there still are unbooked weekends within the next five months left and – strange but true – we do still not know every venue and promoter in this godforsaken world personally: feel free to drop us a line in case you want to wreak havoc with us in your hometown!
5: The new record will be put up here on the homepage after release for a free download – in case you really don’t want your very own haptic copy, you can always just grab the soundfiles in high resolution here.
Strife number six: Can’t wait to see you all again in full drag!
We send our love and a monotone cocktail!
Alright, this time it’s for real: The Gumbabies will release a new record in the very near future. After we went to Madras Prison Studios once again, we have now finished recording, mixing and mastering 4 new tracks. In May or June we will release a Vinyl-7″ called „Cogito, ergo, SCUM“ on our very own Sick Night Records. The release will be available as a free download as well. Vinyl will have 3 different editions with coloured wax, silk screen covers and more fancy stuff.
As a teaser, here is the tracklist:
1. We‘re products
2. Die pretty
3. Something about razors
4. Smart bombs
Stay tuned for further information.
Happy fuckin‘ 2012 to all of you. Unfortunately our Christmas gig in Düsseldorf got cancelled due to health problems of Die Schwarzen Schafe members. The show is now re-announced for february, so watch out. At the moment The Gumbabies are heavily involved in songwriting for a new EP (expect that as free download and very limited vinyl for Mai 2012) and an exclusive song for a Munich compilation called „In München nix los“ scheduled for summer 2012. The Gumbabies hit the infamous Madras Prison Studios once again in late February. Several gigs are planned for 2012 as well, so stay tuned for further informations from The Gumbabies‘ spastic wonderland.
This Saturday the Gumbabies will play the Planetrox-Finals in Düsseldorf. We just wanted to let you know, that this is an early show. The Gumbabies‘ stagetime is 19:00 straight. Make sure to show up early to catch 30 minutes of Gumpunk and have a beer with us afterwards. See you at „Haus der Jugend“.
