    In winter 2017 THE WEIGHT released their long-awaited and widely acclaimed debut
    album – THE WEIGHT. During the next two years extensive touring made them known to a
    wider live audience throughout Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Hard work and slog
    refined the band’s stage performance, creating an atmosphere that established them as a
    highly praised live act and thus laid the foundation of a promising career. In retrospective
    this tour can be seen as a cornerstone of the band’s further development out of the
    charming small venues into a prosperous future.
    With their latest release LIVE TAPES the four musicians give a deep insight into their craft
    and creativity on stage. Moosbrugger’s bass is pumping and rumbling all over the place,
    Vetter is simply killing it on the drums and it remains a secret where Boebel got his riffs
    and licks from. Maybe Jussel, the frontman and singer, could tell but he is way too busy
    winning the audience in a moaning, invoking, almost operatic manner.
    Given the freedom from the studio and being striped down to their basic instrumentation
    THE WEIGHT’s songs reveal remarkable and valuable qualities you wouldn’t hear on an
    actual studio record. It’s (a)live baby!

Track Name: Hard Way - Live
We are the ocean
The deep blue sea
The lonely river
Running wild and free

No doubt about it
Some like it hot
You think it's easy
Dig it, no it's not

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

So we do it the hard way
Yes, we do it the hard way
We gonna go the hard way
Yes, we do it the hard


We are the mountain
We are the peak
We are the fountain
You're supposed to seek

But there's no freeway
That goes up the hill
You gonna fight
With hunger, heart and will

Do it the hard way
Yes, we do it the hard way
We gonna go the hard way

Uhhh – do it
Uhhh – do it

Do it do it do it
Do it do it do it
Come on, come on, come on, come on

Do it the hard way
Yes, we do it the hard way
We gonna go the hard way
Yes, we do it the hard
Track Name: Inside - Live
You wanna be someone
Go cover your face
Just keep the secret
Build up the maze

You know the prize
You want your share
Go climb the ladder
You're not far from there

It's all inside of you
It's all inside of you


Your talk is silver
Your looks are gold
You paint the future
Bright and bold

You know the price
You claim your share
A place in heaven
Is for those who dare

It's all inside of you
It's all inside of you

Be patient, your time will come
Shining bright like the sun
Your time will come
Your time will come
Come and see!

It's all inside of you
It's all inside of you
Track Name: Rich Man's Pride - Live
I'm sure that everybody knows
About a rich man's pride
I wanna tell you story
Of strange and tragic kind

She smiled at him so gracefully
He took her by the hand
The sky was bright, nobody knew
They plowed the devil's land

A hungry eye may never see
When love gives birth to hate
The day is through, the work is done
That's the blind man's fate


When he got up, left alone
In his anger and his shame
He looked outside his window
Into the pouring rain

AHHHHH

Not far away, another town
Two shadows on the run
Covered by their secret
Hidden from the sun

Two riders are aproaching
A father and a son
They carry grief, they carry guns
Bullets, they have some

There they are, there they run
It's too late for goodbyes
He took my love, I take his life
It's an eye for an eye

AHHHHH
Track Name: Money Ain't For Keeping - Live
I was...
Back in LC
Hot on her heels
That's how I wove into that shabby shack

And the place was hot
So I gave it a shot
Without a chance to get my money back

And it's a strange, a strange, strange feeling
And money ain't, no it ain't for keeping

I was...
Thrown to the street
Got back on my feet
With all that liquor running through my brain...


Last thing I know
I took the blow
I felt our love was just in vain

And it's a strange, a strange, strange feeling
And money ain't, no it ain't for keeping

You don't see it coming
Out of the blue
You loose control
It's kind of true

Every time
You hit the nail
The blowback gives you
Such a thrill

And it's a strange, a strange, strange feeling
And money ain't, no it ain't for keeping
Track Name: Hammer, Cross & Nail - Live
Many, many years we've been
A soldier and a gun
You and me
Afraid to pull that trigger

Now a change ist about to come
And I hear them ring the bell
We're supposed to follow


Uhhh

Stay with me, stay with me
Or leave me here for good
Make up your mind, choose your own way

Too many fights, too many tears
To stop this train we're on
You either junp or you keep on rolling

Uhhh

Soldier and a gun, soldier and a gun ...
Track Name: Get Some - Live
Cruel clown you wear your frown
And not before too long
Cool kids can dig the trick
And sing your funky song

Uhh – You gotta have some
Uhh – You gotta give some
Uhh – You gotta take some

Who's gonna get some fun?
Who's gonna get some fun?
Who's gonna get some fun?
Who's gonna have some fun?

Wanna be a big boy?
Better be a brave boy
Bow to the holy cow
Never be the lonely one


Uhh
Uhh

Life can be so easy
Come and try to please me
Show me your devotion
Always keep in motion

Uhh
Yeah, that's right
Uhh
That's how you do it!

Who's gonna get some fun?
Who's gonna get some fun?
Who's gonna get some fun?
We gonna have some fun

Solo

Who's gonna get some fun?
Who's gonna get some fun?
Who's gonna get some fun?
We gonna have some fun
Track Name: Keep Turning - Live
Every day I walk the street
Just to miss the line
The mirror tells me I'm not drunk
The paper says I'm fine
The toilet is a minibar
The carpet is a bed
The devil got me on the run
No reason to get sad


And so the wheels keep turning – keep turning, keep turning
And so my heart is burning

The childhood is a distant dream
The future is a script
The plot is wishy-washy
The actor gets no grip
The producer tells me "You're OK!"
Again I get the lie
I'm acting like a kinky clown
Did I miss the sign?

And so the wheels keep turning – keep turning, keep turning
And so my heart is burning
Track Name: Trouble - Live
Your knees are weak
And your hands are cold
A chill runs down your spine
The petting zoo
Is awaiting you
So hurry, step inside!


Uhhhhh
You're in trouble baby
Uhhhhh

She's got the touch
You want so much
Don't be surprised to find
A million pretty faces
Enchanted by her smile

Uhhhh
You're in trouble baby
Uhhhh
You're in trouble baby
Track Name: The Preacher - Live
I heard your tales of quarrel
I heard your songs of doubt
And I feel the pain and the anger
Let them go for twist and shout

And like a prophet in the land of broken dreams
You are standing right in front of me
And like a seeker in the land of milk and honey
I am standing right in front of you


Who really cares?
Who wanna know?
Who really cares?

And like a prophet in the land of broken dreams
You are standing right in front of me
And like a seeker in the land of milk and honey
I am standing right in front of you

And like a seeker in the land of milk and honey
I am standing right in front of you
Track Name: The Doctor - Live
I could be doctor
I could be king
I could be a superstar
I could be most anything

Sometimes we have to face the truth
Sometimes we have to sing the blues

Let us be joyful
Let us be true
Let the good times roll
Let's chase away the blue

I can hear it calling, calling from the past
It tells me I'm the only one, stuck here in this mess

I can hear it calling, calling from the past
It tells me I'm the only one, stuck here in this mess
But that must be illusion – I guess it's just a lie
And nothing ever hits as hard, as when I see you cry

Let's chase away the blue
