“The title expresses that we have fears from the beginning of our lives. Although they change over time, they are always by our side. Most of the time we suppress them, but they are always there and accompany us until our death." Michi Lettner, singer and bassist of MARATHONMANN, describes the theme that the German post-punk band focuses on on their new work as a very personal concern. The fourth MARATHONMANN album makes no distinction between artist and listener. It's not about putting yourself on a pedestal and preaching what's right and what's wrong, but rather admitting your fears and facing them together.

With “The Fear Sits Next to You” MARATHONMANN deliver a gripping, rousing and deeply personal album that makes the band and their music seem more approachable than ever before and extends a hand to anyone who is looking for them.

A fast-paced and dark video has been released with “Schachmatt”, the first precursor to the new album. The song is also now available as a download and stream. The single is also being released as a limited 7" vinyl, except for a flash sale on April 4th, will only be available on the upcoming tour with ROGERS.

On “The Fear Sits Next to You” MARATHONMANN have of course retained their emotionality and the unadulterated energy of punk, which is particularly demonstrated by the first single “Schachmatt”. “The song is about the question of why things happen and who makes all these rules "You are often helpless and have the feeling that you can't do anything about many things. Everyone knows this fear of being helpless," says Michi Lettner, explaining the content of the song.
