Happy holidays!

Thank you everybody for a wonderful 2023, a great year with a new album and many concerts. It was our great pleasure to meet you all there outside and we‘re looking forward to another great 2024. All the best to you and happy holidays!

October Tour

The last days together with SYLVAN on tour were just fantastic! Many thanks to the promoters, our excellent crew and of course to you, our best audience.

Markus Jehle

With a heavy heart we have to announce that our keyboarder Markus Jehle is leaving the band after nineteen years for personal reasons. In 2003 he played his first concert with us in Peralta, Spain, his last on December 3rd in Leszno, Poland.
We would like to thank him for the great time together and wish him all the best for the future!

Nov/Dec live dates

We’re really looking forward to performing some “best of” concerts with rarely played songs in November before going back into the studio to produce our new album!

RPWL & Freising Symphony Orchestra

22 & 23 SEPT 2022! Together with the Freisinger Symphony Orchestra we will perform rock classics (Pink Floyd, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, RPWL, etc.) in the Luitpoldhalle of our hometown on two evenings. Don’t miss these unique events! Tickets at Eventim.de.

Blues Garage shows cancelled

With a heavy heart we have to cancel our two concerts in the Blues Garage Isernhagen on August 18th and 19th due to health reasons. Our singer Yogi Lang has been struggling with back problems for some time, but now it has gotten so bad that performances in August cannot be possible. We wish him all the best and a speedy recovery!

Festivals 2022

Many thanks for ab amazing festival season so far. We had a blast…! Looking forward to our upcoming shows!

New bass player

We are very happy to officially introduce bass player Markus Grützner from Munich as a new member of RPWL! Markus brings a wealth of experience with many bands, including the spectacular “7for4”. The rehearsals so far have been great and we’re really looking forward to the Artrock Festival on April 10th in Reichenbach. Welcome, Markus!

Since 2018, the bass player position has not been permanently occupied. At this point we would like to say a big thank you to Sebastian Harnack, Frank Thumbach and Jürgen Richter, who have been our musical guests on the bass for the last few years. Especially Sebastian Harnack has been on tour with us for many, many shows and will keep a place in our hearts. Thank you guys!

Kalle Wallner ‘Voices’

Today, our guitarist Kalle Wallner released his solo album ‘Voices’. It contains seven songs, just one with vocals by Arno Menses (Subsignal). More guests: Marco Minnemann (drums), Yogi Lang (keys) and Tanyc (vocals). The album is available everywhere.

Happy holidays!

The latest Covid-19 measures and the so-called “Lockdown Light” in Germany also affect our three concerts in Hanover at the end of November. In consultation with the Blues-Garage, we will postpone this to March 16, 17 and 18, 2021. We hope for your understanding and look forward to finally being able to celebrate our 20th anniversary with you in March. Tickets already purchased remain valid. More information at https://bluesgarage.de/programm.

November shows

The cancellation of the November European tour on the occasion of our 20th anniversary of the first album “God Has Failed” was a hard blow. But too many different regulations in Germany alone and in other European countries unfortunately made this tour impossible.
But now comes the good news: the Blues Garage in Hanover-Isernhagen revealed itself to be a “savior in need” and now we can celebrate our anniversary: on 3 days in a row we will present 3 different programs:
25 NOV 20 “God Has Failed” & “Pink Floyd-Set”
26 NOV 20 “God Has Failed” & “Tales From Outer Space”
27 NOV 20 “God Has Failed” & “Best of RPWL”
Can’t wait to be back on stage!

November tour cancelled

With a heavy heart we unfortunately have to cancel our planned November tour due to the current Covid 19 situation. Until the very end, we hoped for more relaxation for live concerts, but unfortunately it doesn’t look like it – on the contrary: the increasing number of cases and the different situations in the different countries and federal states make it impossible to formulate a hygiene concept so that we can organize these concerts can play. Since we had planned to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our first album, we will not be able to postpone this tour, but unfortunately have to cancel it completely.
We will use the time to write new songs and to be live with a new album as soon as possible. All the best for you and stay healthy!

New video-slideshow

Enjoy our new video-slideshow of the song “Far Away From Home” . These pictures remind us to a wonderful time last year – maybe one of the best! Many thanks to the photographers Wiktor Franko and Charlie’s Pictures.

Happy holidays!

A very eventful year with countless highlights is coming to an end and we would like to thank you for your loyalty and support! We wish you happy holidays and hope to see you at the Midsummer Progfest in the Netherlands or in November at the latest, when we will celebrate the 20th anniversary of our first album “God Has Failed”!

Sebastian Harnack on bass

You may have noticed it all: since last summer RPWL are only four again. The question remains: who will play bass on the upcoming European Tour in April? The answer may not come as a surprise to many of you: Our good friend Sebastian Harnack (Sylvan, Blind Ego) will join RPWL. Initially only for the […]

A psychedelic journey through a man’s day in two parts. But that’s not all: We’re going to bring along our new and very special live album called ‘RPWL plays Pink Floyd’. All Pink Floyd-songs on this album were recorded live through the last couple of years. Of course, this album fits perfectly to this tour of the same name.

Autumn

Autumn After the festival season and a short summer break we are looking forward to prepare for the upcoming and last WANTED shows in Munich, Rüsselsheim, Essen and in NL-Den Bosch. We’d be happy to see you there!

Burg Herzberg

Probably only the elders remember our first gig at the Burg Herzberg-festival 2001. The schedule had been more and more delay so that we started in the morning at 5 am while the sun already began to rise (!) … Now, 13 years later, we’re looking forward to come back. We’ll see you at 6 pm at the main stage. We’re going to play also some Pink Floyd stuff.

Wanted Tour

A big thanks to all of you who’ve been part of the WANTED show. You made this tour really unique. This was a remarkable time!
Best of all: this wasn’t all!
We’ll play several festivals in the next few month. In autumn we are planning some more concerts with the full WANTED show! Stay Tuned! You’re the best!
