The Hirsch Effekt return with their new single NOJA. It’s the first track from the bands 5th studio album KOLLAPS coming May 8th, 2020 via Long Branch Records. KOLLAPS encounters everyday madness with elaborate counterpoints and ludicrous lyric lines. In a heavier manner, the band slips into the roles of other, social actors to reflect the aspects of their agenda: a dispute with the systematic collapse is thematized from the perspective of the „Fridays For Future“-movement, depicted in a musical dainty or a bizarre way, then again also to corrode opposers in a strobe-like manner.
“NOJA” is now available as Stream and Download on all digital platforms.

The Hirsch Effekt about the new single “NOJA”:
“NOJA – equivalent to panic or fear – makes an allusion to our musical roots. Partially, the song pays reminiscence to the band The Fall Of Troy. We actually even ended up dubbing some musical parts in the piece after their song names. The intro was firstly only an attempt to use a delay effect in a certain way, that musician Steven Wilson enthusiastically thematized in a rig rundown video on Youtube. Somehow this song suddenly came about from all of that. The rap part was originally performed by Nils in English and intended to be a spontaneous prank at a vocal session in our rehearsing space.”
KOLLAPS will be available as Box-Set, CD/LP+T-Shirt Bundle, CD, 2LP, Stream and Download. Pre-order the album here
