Hi there everybody and welcome to our new website!
Yes - PILEDRIVER is still alive and kicking - in deed we took a break for some 18 months but never spent a thought about giving up what we love to do... After 18 years of playing constantly nearly the same set (which is obviously the inevitable fate for "tribute acts") we needed to do some different musical stuff. Amazing there are bands who are able to play the same string of songs for 40 plus x years...;-)
Very nice to hear and to read on various websites that there is still some interest in what we´re doing and what we recorded a few years back.
I´m glad to be able to tell you that at the moment we are busy working on songs for a new album that will contain self penned stuff only, but you might recognize who inspired us... Yes, we´re Frantic-four-only-fans and you might hear that when you listen to the sound samples which you can find on these sites.
Since we heard the first bits of the "Bula"-album we started to work harder and more frequently because we don´t want to wait any longer for a "real" SQ-album. We try our best and do it on our own. As soon as we have final versions of the new records we wil place a few bits and bytes on our website.
On September 14th we do our first gig after the break, here´s the website you´ll find more information about the festival that´s going to happen in the netherlands: www.donderslaglive.nl.
Here´s what we still have in stock:
1. CD "PILEDRIVER" – our first album from 1997, content: Covers of famous SQ-tunes and three original (self-penned) songs, Price: 10 Euros
2. CD "HI" – Maxi from 2003, contains 5 songs, Price: 7 Euros
3. CD"PILES of ROCK" from 2004, Price: 15 Euros
4. DVD "PD live in concert" (Stadthalle Bochum, Germany on the 01st of April 2000), Price: 15 Euros

Take your time visiting these sites, enjoy the pics, the sound samples and of course the various video clips.
If you have ever been to one of our gigs you might have made a few clips or taken some pics, too. We would like to ask you to mail your stuff to our email-address so we can upload it on our website to make it available to everybody!
