Pink Turns Blue (DE) + Arc Gotic (RO)
Pink Turns Blue are an influential post punk / new wave band from Berlin, Germany. [35th years Anniversary Tour]
Formed in 1985, they quickly put out their first LP, If Two Worlds Kiss (1987) expressing a sound reminiscent of new wave with very dark undertones and use of synthesizers, only to become one of the pioneers of the developing subgenre of first darkwave (Meta 1988) then cold wave (Eremite 1990, Aerdt 1991).
After many hits like “Michelle”, “Walking on Both Sides”, “Your Master Is Calling”, “The First”, “I Coldly Stare Out”, “Touch the Skies”, “Catholic Sunday”, “Missing You”, “If Two Worlds Kiss”, “Moon” and “Seven Years”, they split up in 1995.
In 2003, they reformed to appear in a few festivals. Because of the success of the reunion, they released a Best Of album called Re-Union, in 2005 their studio album Phoenix and in 2017 “Ghost”. The latest Album is called “The AERDT – Untold Stories”.
Arc Gotic was founded in the autumn of 1992, in Timisoara (Romania). The first album, called “Catehism”, was released in January 1994. The lyrics were influenced by the Romanian “damned” poet George Bacovia.
After a few changes in the lineup, Arc Gotic began in 1996 the work on a new album, “Decadent”, which was recorded in the winter of 1997 and released in June 1998. This was the first title of a new underground label from Timisoara – Htonian Records.
At the end of 2008 the third album “Pavilion Marilla” was self-released and can be ordered directly from the band. It comprises home recordings and some studio ones that were mixed by Tavi Scurtu and Ciprian Costache having a DIY approach.
