Tickets & Tour Information For Planlos
The classic German punk of Planlos
Planlos is a German punk band that came out of Grevenbroich in the early 1990s and continued into the 2010s, taking a hiatus at that point before reuniting to take on the live circuit again. They play a fast, aggressive but very melodic type of punk that has a few hardcore elements to it yet sounds more like the classic UK punk of the 1970s than anything else. Of course it's unavoidable that more modern elements are also present, which makes them a band that will appeal both to the crusty old punks and new skate punks on the block.

A slow early career with singles on sampler albums
Planlos is led by singer Pino and was founded by him and drummer Sylvester Saveski. They began life by playing at friends' parties, being paid in beer in an attempt to get their name out there. It’s the tried and tested route of many a punk band, of course. Their first breakthrough came when they were asked to open for local punk heroes Wizo in their town of Grevenbroich, and they soon found themselves playing in nearby towns too. They gave shows in places like Ratingen and Kaarster, which is where they also recorded their first demo – although it remained unreleased, it spawned two tracks that would later appear on the Vitamin Pill sampler in the region. They released their first proper single in 1996, calling it "Greetings From Ibiza" in a tongue-in-cheek reference to their anti-dance music stance, which is of course common to many a punk band. This landed them a recording contract and they released a cover of a pop hit by Matthias Reim, "Damn, I Love You", which got them appearances on more compilation albums and added to their growing reputation.

A more mature, still hard-edged punk sound
Planlos released their first album, "Game of Life", in 1998, which brought them to the attention of a much wider set of punk rock fans across Europe thanks to distribution by SPV. They signed a new recording contract and celebrated the end of a successful year with a sold-out homecoming concert. More was to come the following year when they became a serious force on the German punk scene, thanks to support slots that they earned with internationally known touring punk bands spanning many eras. First they supported Australia's hard-edged modern punk outfit The Living End (named, incidentally, after a Jesus and Mary Chain song from their legendary "Psychocandy" album), and then won the opening slot on a UK Subs show. More albums followed and they’ve since matured into a very accomplished musical outfit, but still with that pure, rough-edged punk veneer.
