Every single note sees Fair Warning underline the motto the band has chosen: a good song will always remain a good song. At the same time, it's an integral part of the "Pimp Your Past" concept that the arrangements of some of the new versions differ significantly from the originals.
As bassist Ule Ritgen puts it: "When our Japanese record company approached us with the request for this kind of album, we were skeptical to start with. But once we had made up our minds to not simply rerecord the material but furnish it with a few fresh arrangements, the project gained momentum and we were gripped by a kind of eagerness to explore the possibilities. Especially since the new recording are very energetic and sound excitingly different in parts while their essence has remained the same. You can tell that the originals have a lot of substance and that their quality is extremely robust."
The "Pimp Your Past" album will be release worldwide (ex-Japan) on October 28th, 2016 as CD through Steamhammer/SPV.
