So, we had an extraordinarysupertastic release concert. We are really glad so many came to celebrate with us.
Our friends in Fossils even gave us a speciel gift - can you quess which song this is a cover version of?
That's right, it's dear old "The Difference" receiving an even heavier dosis of bas and drums than usual. The cover version is most appropriately named "Fossilence".
Listen to the original right here:
Below you find a couple of pics from the evening. We are so looking forward to playing in Tivoli later this month.

So here's some late sunday news.
For a limit period you can stream Amygdala at the danish music magazine Soundvenue. That happens right here.
Come celebrate the release with us at Radar @ Aarhus this wednesday. We and some friends of ours are going to play and you can buy the vinyl for only 50 KR. See the Facebookevent right here and click the video below for a sneak peek of the evenings program.
Even though Amygdala isn't out until April 4th we already found the first review and it's looking splendid. 5 stars out of 6 and so many kind and enthusiastic words that we are all blushing. You can read it here (in danish):
"Somewhere Behind My Lips" is now right before your eyes.
This is our new single from the upcoming album Amygdala (out April 4th).
Look how it's all shiny, bony and psychedelic.
Have you ever heard of Musicure? It's music that you can buy at your pharmacy and it is supposed to give you certain feelings. Amygdala can also be seen as music medicine that tries to trigger your feelings but which effect it will bring is not predictable since the record is brand new.
"Somewhere Behind My Lips" is the unofficial title track seen as it revolves around amygdala - a small area in the brain's frontal lope. It's a little almond shaped unit that deals with fear and defense reactions. It can be activated by smell, taste and other senses and have an autonomous way of controlling functions like your breathing or (more unfortunately) your bowel movements.
We sincerely hope that "Somewhere Behind Your Lips" trigger your happy feelings and dancing lust instead of more frightful reactions.
The artist behind the video is Olaf Zhiga who is also the mastermind behind the visuals we play on our videosynths at live performances. See more of his works here or come join us at our releaseshow at Radar (Aarhus) 4th of April.

Tjeck it out right here!
In the name of music science, we have decided to play this beautiful song with several local choirs on our DK tour. Elles Lys will also be featured on our totally free of charge pre-release album in a full band studio version - only available at the shows!
Feel like singing along? - or just curious about the lyrics?
Here's the words courtesy of danish poet, Morten Søndergaard.
Hello people. Dish of the day is REALITY TV.
ACDC vs MARYBELL KATASTROPHY
In the rainy month of March this year, Marie Højlund and drummer Klaus Q Hedegaard performed a couple of AC/DC cover songs as a duo at Copenhagen Jazzhouse. The show was "one night only", and because of redwine related circumstances, it wasn't recorded. What a shame..
A couple of days later we decided to "improvise" the songs once again at our rehersal room - this time in front of a low budget video recorder - for you to see, and for us to remember.
So here you go!
We start out with a solo performance of "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap".
You like it? - Please share it.
More videos from this session in couple of days. Stay tuned!
By the way.. Don't remember the original AC/DC version?
Take a look right here: AC/DC - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (LIVE)
Are you a tech nerd? Here's a treat.
Synth playing mix/master nerd, Emil Thomsen, bought a new gizmo.
It's the amazingly rare MicroGotar made by Gotharman!
This sucker is a time machine that takes you back to the heavenly distorted 8bit 80's.
Its complicated, sofisticated and up to no good!
Wanna know more?
Visit the Gotharman website or beg Mr. Thomsen for a demo after one of our shows!
Thats all for today folks.
It's only been a week since we released the new single 'There Is No Rhino In This Room' and it is already spinning on the Danish radio channel P6 Beat.
And now it's got a visuel makeover.
Dissolving images and cut up pictures swirl around in a safari setting.
The video is inspired by Karen Segall's wonderfull designs and the colourful pictures are taken by Zuhal Koçan. It has all been put together by the band's own Jakob Schweppenhäuser who has done an awesome job with it.
The single is still avaible for free right here.
I'm new to the family. My name is Lise, Marybell Katastrophy aficionada and internet wizzard in the making. My job is to give Marybell.dk an interactive facelift as well as occasionally update you guys with news from Katastrophy-ville.
Marybell Katastrophy & The Malpractice send their best to all of you and say thanks for an awesome Denmark tour. For those of you who couldn't make it - as well as for the nostalgics - enjoy the following video from the live performance of "Dl 10" from The More at Voxhall, Aarhus.
Tjit Tjat has commented on the joined venture of MaryMalleren – aka. how Marie and Q. are involved in both Marybell katastrophy and The Malpractice. Read the review here (in danish).
As for the new and exciting things happening behind the scenes at Marybell.dk - we'll get back to that another time.
So here is a little bit more about the shows coming up:
Can you hear images? Can you see sounds? In our brand new collaboration with Jens Mønsted, you can! Together, we have developed a synaesthetic concept: With a construction that we call the video synth, Jens is playing motion pictures, full of sound. Of the sound that the world makes, of the sound of the things - things like a machine's robot arm turning rhythmically along with the drums in "Heavy Industry". We are erasing the borderline between what the eyes see and what the ears hear! You hear with your eyes and see with your ears... And, as earlier mentioned, Karen Segall has designed and decorated new costumes for us that complete this new visual concept.
We only play two shows with this setup, in Aarhus the 22th of October (øst for paradis kl 23.50) and Copenhagen the 23th of October (musikcafeen kl 21.00 with Roxy Joules) - so come, if you want to see how it sounds!
So here we go again, after a summerbreak we are ready for more music making, playing and distributing to you! Today we introduce a new the first member of the Different Differences family made by Alcoholic Faith Mission, and we LOVE it, you can hear it in the shop and of course subscribe and get the songs directly send to you. We are so happy that the remakes keep taking us different places, into new deep forrests of imagination - thank you! And we promise there are a lot more to come - but remember we work with musicians, without any deadlines (because they kill stuff) so therefore it will hopefully be a never ending story - taking all the time in the world
>Here is a little snippet from our newest song Difference that I told you about before - Morten Søndergaard made the lyrics and Q is playing the drums on the track. The pictures are from our last gig at Aarhus University - where Q didn´t play the drums, but took a lot of pictures as you see:
We have great plans with this song, as we invited some danish artists we know to make other versions of the song - a hole coleection of Different Differences!
We will of course get back to this later when the music is ready from Bronson Brothers, Jens Mønsted, Cabin Fever, Darling Don´t Dance, Beta Satan and hopefully more....
