Unplugged Summer and into Autumn17.8.2016

Last Friday we had a nice and relaxed gig at the kulTurm in Ludwigshafen. It was great to see all you lovely people there!

Sadly this is our only gig this year since we are working hard on the next album! Currently, we are rehearsing the new songs and putting the final touches on them before we hit the studio in autumn and record all the stuff.

A happy new year from Arilyn!05.01.2016

We hope you had a great start into 2016!
We were a bit lazy with updats on our homepage the last year since all info was posted on Facebook. But now it is overhauled and all the missing stuff from 2015 is here:

In 2016 we will continue to work on our new album (6 songs are already finished and approved live)!

New album release!5.2.2014

After their debut album Tomorrow Never Comes - which in 2002 had instantly stirred sensation even beyond their home country - and the critically acclaimed follow-ups Virtual Reality (2005), Alter Ego (2007) and Shadows Of The Past (2013) the art rockers from Ludwigshafen/Germany will show a new facet of their music: The by fans highly requested acoustic album A Stripped-Down Journey will be released at the 2nd of May 2014. Beyond the usual lets-do-an-unplugged-album idea, long known and loved Arilyn songs appear in completely new funky and jazzy outfits.

Frankenthal canceled!6.11.2013

Leider müssen wir den Auftritt am Freitag in der Zuckerfabrik absagen. Aus gesundheitlichen Gründen kann einer der Jungs bis auf weiteres nicht auftreten bzw. musikalisch tätig werden. Wir bedauern das sehr und nach Rücksprache mit den Verantwortlichen besteht wohl die Möglichkeit den Gig im April nachzuholen.

Wir sind alle sehr traurig, aber die die uns kennen wissen das uns die Entscheidung nicht leicht gefallen ist.

Wir halten Euch auf dem Laufenden.

P.S. Der Gig am 07.12. in Landau ist davon NICHT betroffen.

Unfortunately we have to cancel the gig on Friday due to health reasons. We are very sad about it, but the health of the band members is more important than anything else.

We'll keep you up to date.

The end is near (of the year)!1.11.2013

As usual time flies and the end of 2013 is already getting closer. But before that we will rock out a little bit more. Come to see us in Frankenthal at the 8th of November. After that we will switch to Christmas mode and have a soft Acoustic gig at the Rhumbar in Landau featuring the HERZBLUT band.

Life is live!17.7.2013

Just a few days and we will again headline the Fo(u)r Friends Festival. Don't miss the chance to see great bands and have a lot of fun. we are very happy that our good friends, the english band The Dreaming Tree, will come to Germany to play the festival with us.

Keyboarder lost in snow

We wish all our friends a happy new year!

Finally we found some time to collect the reviews of our first DVD. Sadly there is none in English available, if you know of one please tell us (info at arilyn dot de).

This year we want to do much more with the band. The songs for the new CD are nearly finished and we hope to start recording soon.

Fo(u)r Friends Festival12.08.2009

Cover DVD Live in England

What to do if the possibilities to play live getting rarer and rarer? Easy: You have to organize your own concert. That's why we the did the first Fo(u)r Friends Festival this year. 4 bands rocked till late at night. Some pictures of the Arilyn gig are now online.

We are currently writing new songs fot...8.5.2009

... the next album. So far we finished 6 songs and we already have started with the next 3 ones. We hope to start recording in the next couple of month.


Cover DVD Live in England

Slow but steady the first reviews of our new Live DVD are rolling in. So far only german sites, the international ones take as usual a little bit longer. But if you want you can start up your Babelfish:

Back to the monkeys for a wrap up20.02.2009

Rhumbar Landau

Unbelievable how time flies. It feels like we came back from our England tour yesterday but it is already February 2009. The stuff to report from that time already piles up so here we go: Eduardo Capella our guitar immigrant-worker had to return to Brasil to his monkeys. Those poor animals were so sad about his absence so we had to let him go...
To have a look back at the great time you can now have a look at the pictures of our last gig with Eduardo:

Pictures Rhumbar / Landau

Also there's an interview with Paul Baker back from our England tour. The content is a little bit outdated due to Eduardo's leave but it is still fun to listen to:

Paul Baker Interview for ARfm Radio

All the best for your further live, Eduardo!

But now we tasted blood with extending the band. We are already rehearsing with a new guitar player. We can't tell you anything so far, but it looks (and sounds) really good!

Merry Christmas and a happy new year!13.12.2008

Arilyn rocking in Telford

As a present from us there are now tons of pictures of our England tour online.

Here we go:

Additionally there's also a new video up on Youtube:

Hail the ale - we are back!29.10.2008

Arilyn and The Dreaming Tree

After 11 days of tour craziness we are back in Germany! The English weather really tried it's best to make us stay because we couldn't leave the town due to street flooding. But after discovering secret roads (call it cow trails) described by a weird old lady who titled us love, sweetheart and pretty little girl (huh?) we managed even this.

Once again we made a lot of new friends especially the guys of The Dreaming Tree which are the English edition of Arilyn in regards to craziness. Their cover version of "Take Off" which they played for us at the last gig blew our minds!
The styles of both bands fit nicely together. Don't forget to check out their web page and Myspace page. Go listen and make friends with them!

For all the people who couldn't attend the shows here is a first impression what you did miss:

Thanks to all the people who supported us on the tour and watched our shows!
Especially Rob Gould our never tired tour manager!

Pictures of all the shows will follow soon.

Neue Arilyn DVD Live in England erscheint im November13.10.2008

Cover DVD Live in England

After 10 years of playing on stages all over Europes and releasing 3 albums, ARILYN will release their first LIVE DVD on November the 3rd. The DVD named Live in England contains the complete legendary gig at the Rotherham Rocks Festival 2005. Further the DVD provides an insight into the backstage world and will show Arilyns private tour diary. Together with a lot of specials like slideshows, another live performance from the England Tour 2006, a german tv performance and the making of the latest ARILYN album Alter Ego this DVD is a good chance to see ARILYN how they are and what the boys see and feel when they go crazy on the road.

You can already watch the trailer online:

OK UK 0810.10.2008


Our England tour OK UK 08 starts next week!



The Mood was a great location at which we played a fabulous gig last year. RIP.

Due to our never tired tour manager Rob Gould the venue for the gig has been quickly switched to:

The Eagle, Buxton (only two doors away :-))

The other great news is that Eduardo Capella will join us on guitar during the tour. Eduardo was a former member of the well known Brasilian Prog Metal Band Ashtar. This will give us the possibilty to perform some songs from our albums live that we couldn't reproduce so far.

We hope to see you at the gigs!

The ugliest band in the world06.08.2008

The Krauts Homepage

You may have already asked yourselve why there was no news on this site for quite a while. It was simply impossible because we drowned in work!

At first there is to report that we have founded the ugliest band in the world: The Krauts The Krauts offer and want only one thing: Fun (and of course more Kraut!)

Neverthless there is also lots of news about Arilyn:

In October our first live DVD should appear and we work hard to hold the deadline! More infos soon.

In addition, Arilyn will tour again in October through England! This time we will also tour the south stands including locations like Southampton and London.

Because we still couldn't get enough we also started to write new songs which will hopefully end up on a new CD planned for the next year.

So stay tuned for a hot autumn!
