46 years after their first album, 44 years after the release of the ? Over-hits? Gammaray (LP Hoodoo Man) and 13 years after the last studio album BIRTH CONTROL, one of the most successful German prog rock bands in the 1970s and 1980s, probably nationally and internationally, released a new studio album in March 2016. With Here and Now Birth Control 11 new compositions, which were still with the bandleader Bernd ? Nossi? Noske. Since April 2018 is the album ? Here and Now? also available as double vinyl, with bonus live tracks from the last concert with Bernd Noske. Since the beginning of 2016, BIRTH CONTROL has been successfully on tour again with a new line-up. In the last years with Sascha Kühn (keyboards), Hannes Vesper (bass) and Martin Ettrich (guitar) peter Föller (lead-vocals) and Manni von Bohr (drums) two old BC members of the 1970s/1980s Birth Control line-up were recruited for the new line up. Mostly sold-out clubs and festival appearances in the last 2 years show that BIRTH CONTROL has lost nothing of its radiance even in the current line-up.
