The Fernweh

Torschlusspanik!: Signed Vinyl LP


Release date: 8 July, 2022

For our second album Torschlusspanik! (German for fear of being left outside the gates) we wanted to address some of the conflict and turmoil both around the world and also internally and emotionally. The band is the same, but we aimed for a leaner, more direct approach to song writing. Rather than painting impressions or abstractions we wanted to quickly get to the heart of our message and songs in bold, primary colours. Many of the songs tell stories or follow characters who represent or personify some of the themes we are trying to address. There is humour and there is sadness within these stories. It is an album that expresses frustration and confusion with the state of things but that very much affirms its belief in the rich and complicated experience of humanity.
