1.The Monsters lösen sich nicht auf!! (zu früh gefreut-ätsch!)
2. Wir machen aber 6 Monate Pause, da Janosh für diese Zeit nach Japan zieht,
und ohne Bass – Keine Monsters -Logo!
3. Sobald Janosh zurück ist, wird das 20 Jährige Bandbestehen gefeiert, versprochen!!!
Rumour Mill
Nope, the Monsters won’t be calling it a day, no chance!
On the other hand, we will face a 6-month-break though,as Janosh
is spending his time an money in Japan…No bass – No Monsters…
simple really!
As soon as Janosh is setting foot on Swiss soil again we will be
celebrating our 20th Monsters Anniversary, and this is a FACT!
