PUMP was formed in February 2002 by a group of talented, hard-working musicians and have released 3 full-lenght albums. Tired of being told what type of music they should play, PUMP decided to go against the pervasive Grunge/Nu-Metal grain to play the hard rock music they love in the vain of Skid Row, Tesla, Whitesnake, Aerosmith and Dokken. Their defiance has paid off. After only a short time, they are taking hard rock and metal to a new generation. PUMP’s current line-up is led by vocalist Marcus Jürgens, whose raw vocal ability contributes to the band’s distinctive sound. The guitar team of Marcel “Selly” Bernhardt and Aki Reissmann each bring his own unique guitar style to this hard-driving mix: bluesy, yet melodic with a heavy twist. Bassist Michael Vetter and drummer Andreas Minich provide the solid, rhythmic foundation on which the music is built. PUMP has what it takes to bring hard rock to a scene hungry for music that is loud, heavy, and straight from the gut. The music is about good times, bad times, sex, booze and lots of life stories, all wrapped up into high-energy Rock-N-Roll music. It’s pure, not pretend, not faked or forced. It’s just simple, but PUMP has something special, a gift, the passion, the drive, the ability to make it happen. It’s time to stand up and salute the next generation of Rock-N-Roll music.
