REVIEWS AND NEWS-COVERAGE
"Rather trophy-like results"
Although I am a creature of habit by nature, I'm extremely excited about the new sounds at THINGS THAT NEED TO BE FIXED. Since you can never put off your expectations, you actually have to try many songs two or three times until you realize how well they work. Roughly in the style of bands like "CHUNK! NO, CAPTAIN CHUNK" and "SINK THE SHIP", Things are not afraid to allow other inspirations and varied melodies, and thus achieve rather trophy-like, independent results. Anyone who likes pop-punk outside the clichés and lyrics with substance and a message has found their new favorite dealer here.

"Fresh and unspent"
This rather young band from Munich has dedicated itself to a crossover sound of metal / punk / core / rap / and even poppy sounds. The result on the record "NEVEREST" sounds fresh and unspent, you can hear it at all the corners and edges of the youthful carelessness of the group. All songs are quite different and there is a lot of emphasis on variety. While you may recognise idols of theirs like "A DAY TO REMEMBER“ here and there, they have to offer fans of the genre quite a lot.

"Accurately propulsive songwriting"
THINGS NEAT TO BE FIXED from Munich prove that Easycore is no longer a US domain. Because the fivepiece picks up on the style of bands like A DAY TO REMEMBER and blends it bluntly with their own Pop-Punk and Metal-Hardcore influences. The proven mix of melody and mosh also works in the Bavarian version, whereby in terms of sound quality hardly any international comparisons have to be shuned. The dozen tracks turn out to be a lively genre mix, which guarantees a constant movement through numerous breaks in tempo and rhythm.
"Creating their own world on NEVEREST"
In order give you an impression of the production: An international standard is easily reached - unbelievable how much pressure is generated and still the subtleties of the individual compositions are worked out. THINGS THAT NEED TO BE FIXED make use of a wealth of genres and create their own world on "NEVEREST". Since this is surprisingly and powerfully implemented and the young men act with a lot of fun, the album has become no plagiarism, but a master's thesis, which convinces with many references.
"Brings fans of different genres into a joint moshpit"
The nice thing about "NEVEREST" is that it brings fans of different genres into a joint moshpit! At the same time, THINGS THAT NEED TO BE FIXED do not chum up to anyone or give the impression that they are trying to please everyone. On the contrary, the guys have found their style and are not afraid to cross and merge musical boundaries, which at first glance do not really belong together. The result is an energetic record that should be quite a monster live.
"Every song surprises"
THINGS THAT NEED TO BE FIXED from Munich mix their influences from punk, metalcore and rap to an ambitious form of pop-punk. Each of the tracks is characterized by gripping choruses, carried by the clean, mostly two-part vocals, catchy lead guitars and fast punk riffs. But as they additionally have rapped transitions, hard screams and massive breakdowns - every song surprises. And that's exactly how they distance themselves from pure feel-good-punk.

THIS IS OUR DNA
Bei den fünf Münchnern von Things That Need To Be Fixed oder kurz TTNTBF
ist der Name Programm. Sie wollen mit ihrer Musik nichts weniger als die Welt zu einem besseren Ort zu machen. Dementsprechend handeln die Songs von den großen Themen, die die Menschheit bewegen, aber auch von Dinos oder Raumschiffen. Denn Veränderung muss auch Spaß machen. Das Spezialgebiet von TTNTBF ist es daher seit 2015 Parties mit fetter Musik zu veranstalten und dabei positive Energie und Weltoffenheit zu verbreiten. Untermalt wird dies von eingängigen Melodien mit kleinen Intermezzos von brettharten Breakdowns. Die Vocals sind dazu passend einmal unschuldig poppig, ein anderes Mal geschriehen dafür umso wuchtiger. Es treffen Einflüsse aus Pop-Punk, Metalcore und HipHop aufeinander. Diesen Spagat aus Stimmungen haben enge Freunde der Band bereits sehr treffend als “Britney goes Bree” beschrieben. Man merkt: die Jungs nehmen sich nicht zu ernst, somit ist eine dicke Live-Fete fast vorprogrammiert. Die Band bestehend aus Alf (Gitarre), Adry (Bass), Flo (Drums/Vocals), Georg (Gitarre/Vocals) und Kle (Vocals) hat bisher die Studio-Alben "Spaceships & Dinosaurs (2016)", "Neverest (2019)", die "ThingsThatNeedToRemixed 2020" Split-Single, sowie die neueste Single "FFPAIN2 (2021)" released. Unter anderem supporteten TTNTBF im Jahr 2018 Skillet (US), spielten 2019 eine Deutschlandtour als Support von "Tell You What Now" und veranstalteten ihre erste eigene erfolgreiche Headliner-Tour mit "Attic Stories" im Herbst 2021. Professionelle Musikaufnahmen und hochwertige Musikvideos mögen den Anschein einer großen Maschinerie hinter der Band erwecken, jedoch produzieren TTNTBF seit 2015 ihre eigenen Clips, recorden seit 2016 ihre eigene Musik und mixen diese sogar seit 2020 in Eigenenergie. Umso mehr freuen sich die Things neue Bekanntschaften zu machen und andrere Orte zu sehen. Bei TTNTBF geht es rein um den Spaß an der Sache!
With the five Munich guys from Things That Need To Be Fixed or TTNTBF for short The name says it all. Through their music they want nothing less than to make the world a better place. Accordingly, the songs deal with the big issues that move mankind, but also with dinosaurs and spaceships. Because change must also be fun. The specialty of TTNTBF has therefore been to organize parties with fat music since 2015 and to spread positive energy and cosmopolitanism. This is accompanied by catchy melodies with small intermezzos of hard breakdowns. The vocals are, appropriately, sometimes innocently poppy, another time screaming for it all the more powerful. Influences from pop-punk, metalcore and hip-hop meet. Close friends of the band have already aptly described this balancing act of moods as “Britney goes Bree”. You can tell: the guys don't take themselves too seriously, so a big live party is almost inevitable. The band consists of Alf (guitar), Adry (bass), Flo (drums / vocals), Georg (guitar / vocals) and Kle (Vocals) has since released the studio albums "Spaceships & Dinosaurs (2016)", "Neverest (2019)", the "ThingsThatNeedToRemixed 2020" split single, as well as the latest single "FFPAIN2 (2021)". Among other things, TTNTBF supported Skillet (US) in 2018, played a Germany tour in 2019 to support "Tell You What Now" and organized their own successful headlining tour with "Attic Stories" in autumn 2021. Professional music recordings and high-quality music videos like that Arouse the appearance of a big machine behind the band, but TTNTBF have been producing their own clips since 2015, have been recording their own music since 2016 and have even mixed it with their own energy since 2020. Things are all the more happy to make new acquaintances and to see other places. TTNTBF is all about having fun!
