They sat together in Leipzig's “Café Cantona” and scribbled band names on beer mats. At some point Martin, Ole and Martin agreed on DIN Martin. A little later they found Carsten, the perfect man on bass and a home in the infamous “Westwerk” in Leipzig. That was in 2010 - 10 years ago. Insane!

Since their last release in 2016 (EP "Falling Apart") things became quiet around the band. Several releases and concert tours in Germany and other European countries left them searching for a new direction, the answer to a question every band encounters at some point – What next? Everyday life had become more and more important, almost overnight. Most recently a brain tumor changed everything in frontman Martin Hommel’s life, at least temporarily. Fast forward to 2020 - the band went back and forth on whether or not to celebrate their 10th birthday. Considering that gigs aren’t necessarily the first choice of celebration this year. Also, the strange feeling of celebrating a birthday, even though they hadn’t put out any new music in the past four years, occurred to them. But in the end – why the hell not? "Hooray" is the name of the single that now accompanies this striking date with music and at the same time celebrates Martin's recovery from this serious illness. “Hooray” is a song that, taken on a larger level, definitely makes sense in a year full of madness and uncertainty. It is an invitation and an offer, talking and listening at the same time and, despite the loyal, gloomy DIN Martin sound, radiates hope for better times. A hooray into the pain!




We’ve been teasing you for a while (I know!), but here we go for real now. We are releasing a new Single called „Hooray“ on the 27th November along with a video. The song will not only mark our 10th birthday as a band but also celebrate Martin’s recovery from a serious illness. Fear not though, it won’t be as cheery as the title might suggest - we are still the same grumpy dudes as always. More on all of the background stories very soon. Will be posting snippets and stuff over on Instagram. Feel free to follow us on there so you won't miss out on all the fun (pics of grumpy dudes).
We are really excited to share something new with you! Til then, stay safe everyone x
