SCHANDMAUL Announces New Album, Knüppel aus dem Sack, out June 10, 2022 via Napalm Records!

CHANDMAUL, the undisputed leaders of German medieval folk rock, unveil their newest masterful hit with their eleventh studio album, Knüppel aus dem Sack, out June 10, 2022 via Napalm Records!

With six Top 10 albums on the German charts (with their 2016 highlight Leuchtfeuer reaching #1 and most recently 2019's Artus at #2), two Echo Award nominations, Gold status for Traumtänzer (2011) and Unendlich (2014), successful tours and numerous festival appearances at the likes of Wave Gotik Treffen, M'era Luna and the legendary Wacken Open Air, as well as millions of streams on digital platforms, SCHANDMAUL have summited to the top of the folk rock scene without a doubt. In 2022, the unit proves once again that they have conquered this position and will stay there with their upcoming full-length!

The first single and title track, “Knüppel aus dem Sack” kicks directly into a sonic universe of long forgotten times, moving forward with modern sound to form an unbeatable symbiosis. The fast-paced verse is fueled by Thomas Lindner's rhythmic vocal offering and leads into an undoubtedly catchy chorus within the blink of an eye.
