A self-grown alternative punk rock band with rough edges and flaws, which can look back on an exciting and always challenging common history, which is far from over. Michael, Steff, Sebastian and Alex achieve supraregional successes with their first band "Megakerls". It attracts media attention and was signed by Warner Music. The first single entered the German charts in 2003, they have TV appearances on Viva and RTL, plays the music award Comet, as well as a tour as opening act for Nena. But suddenly nothing moves forward. The best years of the labels are over and the digital age is overrunning everyone and suddenly their own album is on hold. With Thamos as the fifth band member, in 2015 they start working on songs for a new album and soon it becomes clear: A final, new band name has to come, because the new songs have outgrown the old name. Ihre Motive is born and set out to put their dream from the top into action. Their sound resembles the passage of a thunderstorm cell on a beautiful summer's day: the calm before the storm, cloud towers, gale gusts, downpours, thunder and lightning, devastation, sunshine and rainbows. Different emotions combine in the music of Ihre Motive to aggressive melancholy. Sometimes thoughtful, sometimes on the point.
