Die Ärzte, translated to the Doctors or the Physicians, are a punk band from Berlin. Since their formation in the 1980s, the trio, now made up of guitarist Farin Urlaub, drummer Bela B and bass player Rodrigo González, have released 13 albums.
Their first release was a contribution to the sampler '20 schäumende Stimmungshits' (rough translation: "20 foamy party hits"). In 1983 they won a rock contest in Berlin and with the prize money, recorded their debut EP 'Uns Geht's Prima...' (We're doing great...). Finally CBS signed them, and they released their first LP 'Debil' (Moronic) in 1984, then their second 'Im Schatten der Ärzte' (In the shadow of Die Ärzte) a year later.
Their most recent release was 2012's 'auch', and over the years have won or been nominated for over 33 awards.
The German punk icons head to London next May as part of a wider ’Miles and More’ European tour. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
