[pi !] - With energy-packed alternative rock on Germany's big stages

With their new EP [pi !] provide the sound of 2013 alternative rock. "AMATEVI" is a counterdraft to digital mainstream. It takes rock music back to its roots: honest and earthy, rough and energetic. Recorded live at HORUS Studios (Guano Apes etc.) and produced almost completely analogously, these six songs reveal a thrilling energy that is hard to find elsewhere on the current music market of digital over-production.

AMATEVI is like a musical predator that cannot be caged: Stalking softly through emotive passages and breathing almost inaudibly in-between the breaks, it then spurts powerfully over the edgy riffs and finally strikes with stunning choruses. Produced by Benjamin Schäfer, a "vintage vision" has finally been realised: Taking the listeners back to the early years of rock, the music brings back the crackling vibes between band and audience.

No loops, no samples, no digital effects but tape machines, analogue flair and a tight rock band ready to go. Having played more than 300 concerts, [ pi ! ] never failed to deliver highest quality when performing their energetic alternative rock live. Their appearances at the festivals ROCK AM RING and ROCK IM PARK in 2011 mark the greatest success of their live performances so far.
