Mera Luna Cancellation

We are very sorry to announce that we have had to cancel our show at Mera Luna next month. Andy Booth, who plays guitar and keyboards, hurt his shoulder really badly in an accident and has been medically advised not to play for the next couple of months until it heals properly.

Our spot will be replaced by our good friends Girls Under Glass, featuring Volker Zacharias and Axel Ermes (who also play in The Cassandra Complex). So you people with tickets for Mera Luna will get to see half the band anyway 🙂

Good news though: we are already booking shows for 2024, and so far it looks like we will play in Germany, France, UK, and, for the first time in 20 years, America! Shows in more countries to be added. We can’t announce most of the dates yet, but we will definitely be headlining the Dark Skies Festival in Witten, Germany on March 25th – so don’t miss that one!

NWD Review in Monkey Press

Great review of our show at New Waves Day from Monkey Press.

“The Cassandra Complex was much more electronic. The band came with a tailwind, as The Plague, the first album in 22 years, was released just a few weeks before the performance, which received good reviews and recently climbed to number two in the German alternative charts. [Actually it got to #1, but never mind 🙂 ]

Among other things, the title song and the anti-Boris Johnson and Donald Trump single The Crown Lies Heavy On Its King were also part of the setlist. Founder and singer Rodney Orpheus was a bit nervous, as he admitted in one of his interim announcements. The reason being that guitarist Andy Booth was about to give birth to a new generation – with the spontaneous replacement from the band’s environment, it was possible to rehearse exactly once.

However, the jump into cold water was successful. The anthemic Electro-Rock caused a lot of movement in front of the stage. The Northern Irishman Orpheus, who spent many years of his life in Aachen and Hamburg, among other places, apologized for his “not so good German”, only to talk a surprising amount in surprisingly good German between the songs. He was also the only musician who really communicated with the fans during the day – the other bands had almost constant silence between their songs.

We wish Rodney the best for this first regular Cassandra Complex concert since 2019 – and wish this likeable band more performance opportunities in the near future.”
