From the remains of several local punk- and hardcorebands, Northern-Germany-based Tackleberry was formed in the late summer of 2004. Eager to get back on stage, the four kids wrote a dozen songs at full tilt, and managed to play a show with Amulet, after having rehearsed for only 2 months. By that time, the first Demo-Cd called “...and the losers win it all some day...“ had also been recorded. Soon after that, HerrOng filled the vacant second guitar-player spot. The second guitar-player is currently filled by Aiko/The Force Within.Read More
Tackleberry combines elements of modern and old-school Hardcore, adds a punkrock-edge and -attitude and still isn't afraid of combining this with other styles. Positive, fast, without superfluous macho-bullshit! Dealing rather with personal than political issues, the lyrics still contain lots of social criticism, often presented in a somewhat satirical way.
After playing Shows all over Europe, including a tour in Russia, Tackleberry recorded 7 songs which were released on 2 Split-CDs. The first CD is a Split with the russian band cut'n'run and was released with the help of the russian label "Karma Mira Records". The second version of the CD contained 5 Songs by their friends The Force Within from Bonn and was ready to be sold in summer 2006.
Tackleberry continued touring and played shows with bands like Good Clean Fun.
