MARATHONMANN release their new album “The fear sits next to you”

HAPPY RELEASEDAY, MARATHON MAN - “Fear Sits Next to You” is now available everywhere!

The new album is available as download , stream , CD and standard LP . As a limited vinyl edition, there is a “Glow in the Dark” pressing available exclusively from Coretex ; the red version, limited to 300 copies, has been almost sold out since pre-sales and only ends up in small quantities in stores (still online at Green Hell , Flight 13 and Vinylnerds available).

Of course, the band in particular is really excited about the release of their new album, excited and excited to see how the new work will be received. MARATHONMANN frontman Michi tries to express this feeling and once again emphasizes the meaning of “Fear sits next to you” for his band:

“It’s finally here! After a long period of work, it's an amazing feeling. For us it is the most important album in the band's history. We put everything into this record and couldn't be happier with the result.
Thanks to everyone who is part of this project and especially thanks to everyone who has already bought or listened to the album - and everyone who will do so! We hope you have as much fun with it as we do.”

But it's not just the band themselves and their fans who are happy about the release, the press is also impressed and enthusiastic about "The Fear Sits Next to You". Here is just a short excerpt of the fantastic feedback that can be found in magazines and online:

"This is definitely the best album that Marathonmann have released so far." - OX FANZINE

“Quality from the first to the last second! And for some people, salvation on top of that.” – FUZE MAGAZINE

“Marathon man shows heart and depth.” – MORECORE

“12 new tracks that couldn’t be more varied.” – AWAY FROM LIFE

“The entertainment value is very high and musically it is the best Marathonmann album to date. And of course, 'The fear sits next to you' is also lyrically an A." - ALBUM OF THE WEEK

"With 'The fear sits next to you', MARATHONMANN have made a gripping, rousing and deeply personal record." - TERRORVERLAG

“You could almost say that no Marathonmann album has ever been more personal and honest.” – HANDWRITTEN MAG

“Pressure, force with the guitar and a lyrical release of all feelings.” – CULTURE IN MUNICH

“'The Fear Sits Beside You' makes room for a bit of indie pathos punk. That's good for the band." – VISIONS MAGAZINE

“The fear sits next to you” is 100 percent MARATHON MAN, but also because it sounds like no release before. “MARATHON MAN always sounds like MARATHON MAN to us. Nevertheless, we never want to copy ourselves or stagnate musically. We are also constantly developing personally and the new album reflects that – more than any album before,” explains Leo. Despite the absolute will to further develop, the new album came about more directly and naturally for Michi: “We just started writing. It just had to come out without thinking about it too long. In the end, we just wanted to be proud of ourselves.”

After their last album “My Life Belongs to You”, MARATHONMANN took more time to refine their musical and content-related vision. Now, of course, the boys want nothing more than to get the new work on the road and show it to the fans to present live. MARATHONMANN will celebrate the new album at four release events and go on tour with THE PARIAH and DIE HEART as headliners in the fall. Michi can hardly wait for the coming months: “We are really proud of our new album. We stand behind every song, behind every note, behind every line of lyrics 1000 percent."
