What happens when four guys from Ulm, Germany, with almost 60 years of experience in song writing and touring between them decide to start a band? LOVE FORTY DOWN - between punk rock romance and fist-in-the-air sing-alongs. Arising from different bands within the scene, this combo has been around since 2017 with their current line-up: Steffen (vocals and guitar), Niggi (vocals and drums), LöD (bass) and Dani (guitar).
Punk is political and so is LOVE FORTY DOWN. They use their voices and their platform as a band for political activism wherever possible - i.e. being part of the Protest-Sounds network by Kein Bock Auf Nazis and the No Music On A Dead Planet campaign by Music Declares Emergency. Anti-fascism, environmentalism, feminism, LGBTQ rights and animal rights are top of their agenda and reflected in their lyrics.
With a shitload of passion and a genuine DIY attitude, the band released a self-titled EP in October 2018 and toured Germany, Austria and Hungary as well as supporting US legends Death By Stereo.
