“Bad News” is not only the opening track of the new album; it’s also exactly what fans and critics alike have grown to love about the band – white-hot rock‘n’roll with the finest songwriting, AKA classic Gotthard at their best.

“Bad News” sees Nic at his most direct, showcasing his most vibrant and exhilarating characteristics. Empowered by wild, screaming guitars and thundering drums, his voice is a statement to what the album is all about.

“We wrote this one with Eric Bazilian, a song about how people love to be around you when you’re successful and love to kick you when you’re down! It has a great classic rock riff”, singer Nic Maeder says about the new track.

“#13” will be available on CD (Jewelcase) with 13 tracks and as a special edition collector’s box (including a digipack with 2 bonus tracks, a bandana and a poster-booklet) as well as a double LP with two bonus tracks.
