- 01.02.2012 - Happy birthday to electronic folk metal!
It has been three years since the instant hit Hypnosquirrel was recorded with the help of the world famous EuroMac3.0. As you can see from the new picture in the images section, me and my fans are very happy about the occasion.
- 29.09.2011 - Spotify
I am very happy to announce that the album ü including the Japan Bonüs is now available on Spotify! Check it out!
- 18.07.2011 - Overwhelming financial success!
As everyone knows, the recording process of the album ü has taken an unimaginably large amount of money. But now, thanks to the countless loyal fans, the album and merchandise sales have made me richer than ever! Therefore I have made all my tracks free for download at the discography section. You can also download the full album as a .rar file with one click.
Now, being incredibly wealthy, I can move on to planning new projects, such as brand new merch, and possibly a music video...
- 02.04.2011 - Japan Bonüs released online!
The remastering, editing and other necessary actions for the downloadable version of the Japanese release bonüs track have been made, and it is out! As at least the Japanese fans already know, the song brings five more action-packed intense minutes to the album, and it is called Ironic Dimensions!
The track is available at every Jürgen Holmes community site and of course the discography section of this homepage.
- 15.02.2011 - Soundcloud.com, site update and more
Jürgen Holmes has joined soundcloud.com. The whole album ü can be found there for free. Stream or download. It's the easiest way to listen to Jürgen Holmes online so far, be sure to check it out.
The website has recieved a small update: the album ü can now be ordered at the discography-page, though the ordering method is still being improved. The gallery has new pictures, and SoundCloud has been added to communities.
Also, I am very sorry that the Japanese Release Bonüs track has not been released. Some problems have occured, and I can't talk about them in any more depth right now. But do not worry, the track will be out as soon as possible!
