It's been a long time coming but finally Germany-based hard rock legend PINK CREAM 69 is about to release it's long overdue double DVD "Past & Present" in the fall of 2009.
Vocalist David Readman, the guitar team Alfred Koffler / Uwe Reitenauer, bassist Dennis Ward and drummer Kosta Zafiriou have packed their "birthday release" with an impressing amount of content:

•    the live concert from the band's 20th anniversary show in their hometown Karlsruhe , filmed in January 2009
•    the legendary "Size It Up - Live In Japan"- video from 1992, for the first time ever to be released on DVD, featuring the band´s original singer Andi Deris (now HELLOWEEN)
•    a 55 minute documentary with interviews and rare footage
•    all 8 official video clips
•    bonus live material from the band´s appearances at "Masters of Rock" (5 songs) and "Das Fest" (3 songs) festivals in 2007

The double CD "Live In Karlsruhe", contains the entire Karlsruhe concert as well as two bonus tracks recorded at "Das Fest" Festival in Karlsruhe.

This truly is the ultimate package, not only for PINK CREAM 69 fans. "Past & Present" (with a total running time of more than 4,5 hours) and "Live in Karlsruhe" include everything a rock fan needs to have from PINK CREAM 69!

Two years after the highly acclaimed „In10sity"-album, PINK CREAM 69 are back with two impressive releases at once. To sum it up, the long waiting time has been rewarded! And it gets even better: the new studio album is already in the works!

History:
PINK CREAM 69 has been founded back in 1987 by singer Andi Deris, guitarist Alfred Koffler, drummer Kosta Zafiriou and later on completed by bass-player Dennis Ward. After winning a band competition in 1988, the band signed a multi-album deal with major record label Epic (Sony Music BMG). After the hugely successful first album "Pink Cream 69" (1989), the follow-ups „One Size Fits All" (1991) and „Games People Play" (1993) landed high in the official German and Japanese album charts. Intensive touring with internationally renowned acts like WHITE LION and EUROPE as well as countless headlining tours helped Pink Cream 69 to gain a big and loyal fan base all over the world.

Due to musical and personal differences, singer Andi Deris left the band in 1994 to join HELLOWEEN and also to pursue a solo career. After auditioning various singers, Deris was replaced by Englishman David Readman, debuting on the band's 1995 album „Change". Recorded with internationally renowned producer Shay Baby (Bruce Dickinson, Scorpions) in Los Angeles, the album sounded surprisingly current and fresh. 1997's „Food For Thought" managed to combine the band's new direction with it's roots even better.

After the release of the live album "#Live#" in the same year, PINK CREAM 69 went another major step on. The band re-thought their actual musical strengths and re-adjusted their direction even more - „Electrified" (1998) saw the band one hundred percent back on the hard rock track! The album achieved rave reviews from both sides: fans and press. The impressive single "Shame" accompanied by a video has been followed by a tour in the special guest slot for the mighty Bruce Dickinson and his solo band. A very positive situation indeed that has even been topped by the following album „Sonic Dynamite" (2000), which broke into the official German album charts again.

The band proved their excellent form once again with 2001's „Endangered" album before news emerged that guitarist Alfred Koffler suffered from Focal Dystonia, a serious disease that affected his left hand and his playing. For upcoming live shows the band recruited second guitarist Uwe Reitenauer to relieve Alfred's situation on stage. In 2004 PINK CREAM 69 released the aforementioned „Thunderdome". The album again entered the German album charts and was touted by many fans as one of the band's best albums to date.

2007 marks the full force return of PINK CREAM 69. Strenghtened by second guitarist Uwe Reitenauer - now a regular member - the band delivered another brilliant piece of music: „In10sity". A full blast of stadium hard rock power!
