Germany's Staubkind is a dynamic rock outfit featuring Dresden-born lead singer/guitarist Louis Manke.
Formed by Manke in Berlin in 2003, Staubkind initially focused on a dark alt-metal sound before shifting toward a more mainstream pop/rock vibe. They debuted in 2004 with Traumfänger and headlined their first tour. Staubkind's follow-up, Zu Weit, arrived in 2007 and helped raise the band's profile even further. In 2012 they returned with their eponymously titled third studio album, which reached the Top 30 of the German albums chart. The following year, Staubkind joined Unheilig on tour and released the concert album Wo Wir Zu Hause Sind: Akustik Tour Live. The full-length Alles Was Ich Bin, including the single "Wunder," appeared in 2014 and hit number eight in Germany. In 2017 they released their fifth full-length album, An Jedem Einzelnen Tag, featuring the singles "Fliegen Lernen" and "Das Best Kom Nacht." ~ Matt Collar
