UK Tour & EU Dates Announced for September/October!

WUCAN have the best rock singer in the universe right now, completely original songs, unparalleled energy, more joy playing music than all Scandinavian snot rock bands combined, intelligent lyrics, great charisma – and the absolutely perfect production for this kind of music.”  — DEAF FOREVER
“Original, exciting and challenging at the same time. Open your ears!” — ROCK HARD

Up-and-coming German hard rock band WUCAN have signed a worldwide record deal with the SPV label, Long Branch Records. The quartet from Dresden recently entered the German album charts for the first time in their career with their latest album Heretic Tongue, followed by impressive performances at numerous European festivals.

WUCAN expands our artist roster as a highly motivated and promising group that knows how to win you over, especially live,” comments Long Branch Records label manager Manuel Schönfeld. WUCAN innovatively merge the most diverse rock genres to create a legendary sound for today’s time.”

WUCAN manager Karl Walterbach adds: “With Long Branch Records / SPV, WUCAN has now found a label partner that is perfectly positioned internationally. This allows us to make optimal use of the global networks of our booking agent, MAD Tourbooking/Berlin. The first result will be a small UK tour in October 2023. We are looking forward to the upcoming cooperation.”

WUCAN are here to break up ossified genre conventions. Using 1960s rock rubrics, the band reaches past that traditional Anglo-American heritage, leaning instead, into the rock history of East Germany. Who out there can recall East German hard rock bands such as Babylon, Berluc or Blitzz? It is legendary names like these WUCAN pay homage to, and with virtuoso bandleader Francis Tobolsky, deliver the freshest new spirit in the German rock scene.
