Pressure Drop Punk Rock from Mannheim (DE)

For 25 years, the will to make timeless music and share it with people has been the fuel that keeps LOADED on the road. They fuse punk, a touch of ska, and rock’n’roll with their very own explosive blend of songwriting, and the result is the sound of three friends presenting a unified front, trying to find some light amid the darkness. Like their influences The Clash and The Specials, LOADED offers entertainment, conviction, and release- melodies with a message and stories with real characters.

Hailing from the city of Mannheim, the band has spent an impressive amount of time on the road since 1994- racking up more than 600 shows, both as headliner and as support for heavyweights such as Broilers, Dropkick Murphys, Beatsteaks, and Cocksparrer. And while they may not be able to tour as often as they did back in the 90s, their intensity hasn’t cooled in the least.

Over the course of five full-length albums (with a sixth in the works), the band has continuously pursued their desire to raise the bar and create music that will resonate for years to come. Though maturity can be the death sentence for some bands, signaling a retreat from cutting edge rock’n’roll, LOADED continues to make songs that matter. Keeping the frills to a minimum and maintaining a hard-charging, straight-ahead rhythm, they burn their way through an impressive array of moods- from poignant melancholy to defiant exhilaration.

2019 marks the 25th anniversary of their first concert, and with a new album in the works, the band will be hitting the road to celebrate more two-and-a-half decades of pressure drop punk rock.
