German rock band 4LYN has had a very impressive track record in Europe over the past few years with their English language Linkin Park–styled rock and roll. The band has been touted as the most export ready rock band from Germany since Rammstein.


The German foursome known as 4LYN has made some serious strides since forming shortly after the dawn of the 21st Century. They’ve released four charting, well-received albums, along with a slew of successful singles. They’ve toured the length and breadth of Europe with such stars as Papa Roach, Thumb and Therapy?--including a July 2006 gig in exotic Istanbul, Turkey, as sole support act for Guns ’N Roses, where 4LYN raised the roof with a rockin’ performance in front of 15,000 appreciative fans.

Half a dozen music videos have received prominent airplay from a variety of sources, including MTV Europe, VIVA, VIVA Plus, NBC GIGA and many more. They’ve made numerous appearances on European television, including MTV Select and “Top of the Pops.” They contributed a song, “Me vs. Me,” to the top action movie of 2002, the Vin Diesel vehicle “XXX” (“Triple X”), and also had their tune “Kisses of a Strobelight” chosen for a worldwide television campaign by French auto maker Renault. Video game manufacturer Sega hand-picked the band to do music for their popular “Sega Soccer Slam” title…and as if that weren’t enough, they also composed the theme song, “Go, Sea Devils,” for the local NFL Europa squad, the Hamburg Sea Devils, and performed at halftime during several of their games. Could it be coincidence that the Sea Devils won their first title this year? We think not!

An impressive résumé for a young band, no? Now, though, the Hamburg-based quartet is ready to take it to a higher level yet with the September 2007 release of "Hello," their fifth studio album. Filled with fist-pumping guitar riffs and anthemic, sing-along choruses, “Hello? represents a quantum leap forward for the talented foursome. “This record represents four young men with a lot of stories to tell,? says 4LYN frontman Ron “Brasko? Cazzato. “?Hello’ reflects what we’ve experienced over the past few years--more than any other record we’ve done before. It takes only a few seconds and you’re in. If you’ve never heard of 4LYN before, then this is the perfect opportunity to plug into this band--this album will get you addicted to our music! We grew and so did the music we play, but without any negative side-effects. This band has kept us young and restless and you will feel that from the first song on, even if the subject matters differ from the first four albums.?

In April 2007 4LYN journeyed overseas to Los Angeles for the third annual MUSEXPO music, media and technology conference, where they wowed a crowd of international tastemakers assembled at the Key Club on the infamous Sunset Strip with a selection of songs from "Hello." Before the showcase, though, the band was featured on a special four-hour edition of the internationally syndicated radio show “Passport Approved,” based at the famed “Indie 103.1” in Los Angeles. Later that very same day the group took a jaunt over to Rehearsals.com, where they performed a special one-hour set filmed by the state-of-the-art production crew at the rapidly rising rehearsal facility, which had previously hosted acts as diverse as John Mellencamp, Hoobastank and the Pussycat Dolls, among many others. “Playing in the United States is a huge opportunity, but most European bands are way too nervous to be themselves when it comes to rockin’ an American crowd,? observes Ron. “We’ve always kept that in the back of our heads, determined not to make the same mistake--and we were proven right. We came, played the way we always do and, in the end, convinced everyone. This band possesses breathtaking energy and everyone felt the same way about us. Both American radio and institutions like rehearsals.com showed us a lot of love when we came and we were more than satisfied with the results. Since we returned back home we’ve gotten so much response from new American fans--you can now find hundreds of kids playing our songs on their MySpace profiles.?

A video for the first song from "Hello," “Nostalgia,” is on the playlist for the International Music Feed (IMF), which reaches over 10 million subscribers in the U.S. through the satellite-television provider Dish Network. IMF is the first 24-hour music channel to combine the best of American music with that of other worthy acts from around the world; more info can be found at www.imf.com (be sure to check out the video biography for 4LYN when you visit!). The video for “Nostalgia” can also be seen on the group’s web site, www.4LYN.com, and on their label Rodeostar’s web site: www.rodeostar.de. “?Nostalgia’ is an anthem for everyone who lost somone beloved in the speed of life,? Ron muses. “Even though I wrote the lyrics, I keep on feeling very melancholic when I hear it. I guess the meaning of ?Nostalgia’ will touch a lot of people; plus, the video depicts the dark, romantic feeling of this song.?

The future looks bright, indeed, for 4LYN. After playing a variety of festivals this summer in their native Germany, they’ll be hitting the road in support of "Hello" wi

I Found picture of you and me
from 1989 when we
shared the world together
happy as teens could be
life´s a whirlwind and time´s a whore
I pick our past up off the floor
I write these lines just in case
I don´t see you no more
maybe you´re married,
you´ve got it made
maybe you´re famous
or just get played
maybe you showed up at our show
but maybe I will never know

no, I will never know
cuz´ you´re somewhere where I can´t go
a million miles away
or right here next to me
I´ve tried so many times to find the home that once was mine
a million miles away
or right here next to me

just one sign is all I want
to move on where we started from
I´ve tried as hard as I could try
not even sure you´re still alive
what´s with all that we once shared
please forgive me but I care
I scream as loud as I can scream
but you don´t hear me

no, I will never know
cuz´ you´re somewhere
where I can´t go
a million miles away
or right here next to me
I´ve tried so many times
to find the home that once was mine
a million miles away
or right here next to me

I survived our separation
but I can´t wait for all time
all I need is a little information
so I can leave it behind

no, I will never know
cuz´ you´re somewhere
where I can´t go
a million miles away
or right here next to me
I´ve tried so many times to find the home that once was mine
a million miles away
or right here next to me
