Hanoi, Hue, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City

Concerts, workshops, meetings and discussions in Vietnam and five other Asian countries

The German newcomer band DER RINGER is packing up to tour across Asia this autumn. They will kick-off in Vietnam in October and then continue to the Philippines, China, South Korea, Japan and Mongolia.
Numerous concerts come along with interactive workshops and talks in which German learners from the Goethe-Institutes, PASCH partner schools and universities will get the chance to meet and communicate with the musicians.
With their 2017 released debut album "Soft Kill", the band represents the voice of a digitalized generation. Like almost no band before they seize on the contemporary spirit and let their songs tell stories of our daily digital life. Thus their music has a great impact on us, it evokes and carries emotions with typical metaphoric lyrics that rather work as an instrument. The questions the band asks are fundamental to us: Is our life drifting apart to digital spheres? Can our life be as real in virtuality? How do digitalization and humanity fit together?
The quintet from Hamburg underlines that it is not about demonizing digitalization but to accept its importance in its often unromantic everyday life and to set it to music. Can you write love songs for robots? Yes, you can! The band’s search for softness and emotionality in a digitalized world is the unique focus of their music.
DER RINGER is powerful, breezy, loud and sensitive. And even without understanding the German lyrics the music sounds digital. The genre of DER RINGER can be located somewhere between indie, pop and punk. They appreciate synthesizer and vocoder effects, like to call themselves soft punk and get labeled with amusing terms like “post-punk-pop”.
DER RINGER is music from the present that suits the future well. Music that is worth to be shared – on social media and in concert halls. The band certainly is of the most exciting German newcomers. They are playing music for digitalized hearts.
