They'll also be performing at Wellington's multi-stage street carnival CubaDupa, here's the upcoming tour info...

Press release:

Hunger - specialists for musical accidents // faulty Disco Punk

The band Hunger, currently based in Berlin, consists of Christoph Rothmeier (The Entertainers’ Dry Eye, Kröter), playing drumset, drum computer, synthesizer, trumpet and singing, and Jörg Hochapfel (Onom Agemo & The Disco Jumpers, Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra), playing synthesizers, melodica, tambourine and singing.

Often they play music together without playing together, or they invent cruel musical rules for themselves. Sometimes this results in tightly knit songs, although with a significant blurriness. And sometimes it results in terrible accidents - these are unavoidable, but welcome, while still being terrible accidents.

Lots of concerts and performances since 1996, from Hamburg’s Golden Pudel Club to Berlin Art Week and New York’s Le Petit Versailles.

7 self-released albums and a DVD with music videos on their own label hungermuzik.
