Scooter Unleash 21st Studio Album ‘Open Your Mind And Your Trousers,’ Announce Anniversary Tour

German techno titans Scooter celebrate a major milestone with the release of their 21st studio album, Open Your Mind And Your Trousers. The record arrives hot on the heels of a string of successful singles, including “Techno Is Back,” “Rave & Shout,” “Waste Your Youth,” and the recently released “For Those About To Rave,” all of which have been met with fervent fan approval.

The album boasts 15 tracks that pulsate with the band’s signature high-octane energy. Alongside the previously released anthems, Open Your Mind And Your Trousers offers a diverse sonic palette. Tracks like “I Keep Hearing Bingo” deliver infectious rave beats, while unexpected grooves emerge on “Let’s Do It Again.” Scooter’s unwavering commitment to classic techno shines through on tracks like “Ardrhu,” a testament to their versatility and ability to consistently deliver face-melting music.

Coinciding with the album release, Scooter unveiled the official music video for “POSSE RELOADED,” a fresh take on their beloved classic “Posse – I Need You On The Floor.” Frontman H.P. Baxxter himself emphasizes the track’s significance, highlighting its role in ushering in a new era for the band’s sound.

Scooter’s unparalleled success is undeniable. All 75 of their singles have charted within the Top 100, solidifying their position as one of Germany’s most influential musical forces. Boasting numerous chart-topping albums and singles over their two-decade reign, they continue to be a powerhouse in the live arena.

Building on the momentum of their previous studio effort and sold-out European tour, Scooter embarks on their “THIRTY, ROUGH AND DIRTY!” anniversary tour in 2024. Fans can expect a full-throttle live experience, complete with pyrotechnics and fiery theatrics, designed to create unforgettable memories for their dedicated following. Kicking off on March 28th in Stuttgart, the tour will traverse Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. Attendees can expect a high-energy setlist featuring both brand new tracks from Open Your Mind And Your Trousers and revered classics like “Maria, (I Like It Loud)” and “The Logical Song.” Tickets are on sale now.
