    PREORDER DISCOUNT!!! Final album price will be 20 Euros.
    This album will hold 13 songs in 2 versions each, and 12 "trigger warnings", our exclusive AUDIOTHEATRE:
    TWFS will resemble much more our live shows than anything we made before. There will be theatre going on between your headphones. Intermissions, short audio plays, dialogues and soundscapes will set you in the mood for each track, and of course an ouverture. Obviously, these will only be on our own playlists, the physical things, bandcamp, patreon, and on the download file you will get as a backer. Not on spotify and the like.
    All songs will come in a CD master set for listening on a HiFi device from your harddisk or a CD you burn for yourself, and a Web master suitable for streaming from your mediatheque of choice on your mobile device. We might include even more versions as they come along.
    Also included once done: the artbook as a PDF, and the fold-up artwork to hold everything as a PDF.
    Physical items available additionally (not included):
    twfs 1: Just the CD in a no-frills cardboard
    twfs 2: The Artbook
    twfs 3: The fold-up tabletop oracle game with cut out figurines, playable and available with or without the CD
    twfs 4: ...??? more coming!

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Part 3 of the modular artwork for TRIGGER WARNING.

    The full album with trigger warnings as an oracle and table top game.
    Not kidding.
    Each part of the twfs artwork opens a different perspective on the album. This one´s the control part. Life is a lottery, at best.
    Invent your own rules for this table top game, or just predict one of your possible futures, and cut out yours truly to use as figurines for your game.
    Can be used with or without the CD. Does NOT contain lyrics booklet - that´s the Art Book, the following item, NEITHER the USB stick NOR the Schnufficreep - these are suggestions on how to play. DOES hold the cutouts though, but you have to cut them out yourself...!

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Part 2 of the modular artwork for TRIGGER WARNING

    This started out as the lyrics booklet. Now it is a real book, and so we sell it separately. All the single items of the TRIGGER WARNING album tell a different story.

    An A6 book made with real thick and soft book paper. Offset print and book binding.
    Hand drawn and designed artwork for each song, and more.
    Can also be enjoyed without the album but both together make an immersive experience.
    Holds several loose inlays, some of them individual and unique for each book.
    If you want it signed, say so.
    (Available from TW release on)
    NOT A VINYL. Unfortunately bandcamp doesn´t offer any options to embed a book into the album page so I had to tag it as a vinyl!

    Includes digital pre-order of Trigger Warning. You get 4 tracks now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it’s released.

about

“We have created a monster“

TRIGGER WARNING is Feline & Strange’s most political album so far.
It is heart-wrenching. Furious, tragic, sometimes sarcastically silly. It is feminist. No. Humanist. It is depressing, and disturbing. Just as the world is these days.

“You are not alone with all these emotions. We are here, and we hear you. We see you and we lend you our voices.”

The album is called Trigger Warning for a reason. The songs show no mercy to any human abyss. Feline is addressing war, despair, abuse, rape, hate, discrimination, depression, madness, and suicide, as directly as ever.

The work is also deeply connected to Taylor´s coming out as a trans woman. After a nearly lethal fight against society, expectations, and work related prejudice, she opened up to Feline as literally the first person on the world besides her partner, less than two months before preproduction in Berlin was scheduled. She kept saying: “I must remember this album is not about me.” And Feline kept responding: “It is. It´s about everyone.”

Track Name: Inappropriate
INAPPROPRIATE 128 - Am
It's a feather in my hat
It's the pearl around my neck
That makes me bad
It's the colour of my hair
Or the language in which I swear
That drives you mad
I'm not correct in what I do - I'm offending them and you
I'm in your line of sight and yes, my dear, you're right:
I'm inappropriate!

It is the vixen dress I wear
And the stuff about which I care
That makes me bad
It is the nipple of my tit
It is the place on which I sit
That drives you mad

You've lost control over your eyeballs and over your typing hand as well
Looking away is not your forte (fortay) and what you see you have to tell
You've got the right to be offended as I have got that to offend
Your mind is set in a concrete block and you don't want that state to end

„You can't do this because you're Female
You can't do this because you're Old
You can't do this because you're Black or white or green
You can't do this because you suck
You can't do this because you're blind or dumb or lame
You can't do this because you're fat
You can't do this because you're ugly“
- You know what? I give a fuck!
I'm inappropriate...
Track Name: Restart from Zero
The ark is sinking – all hope is gone
Chaos is linking what´s new and what´s done
The past is burning and its flame flickers and dies
Quenched by ignorance – suffocated in lies
Restart from Zero – Try again. Restart from Zero, little man.
Time is revolving back to Big Bang
The snake has no face but a poisonous fang.
The sky is dark now with acidic rain
The rock is falling, all was in vain.
Hold your beloved for all that´s it´s worth
Cry on her shoulder while she´s giving birth
Track Name: Another Dream
1 It feels so good to stay in bed - To pull the cover up your shoulders
To turn around and snuggle in - And not to care about what's sad
It is so easy sleeping in - Pretending life is just a nightmare
To just stay put and let them worry Whether to sleep may be a sin
Let's stay in bed Today - Let's keep ea ch other warm - The world is cold Today - Let's stay in bed
Whether we're there or not - It won't make a difference - So let's disappear - Into Another Dream

2 Isn't it nice to stay in bed - To close your eyes, play deaf and blind
To turn your back towards your partner - And let the world be screaming mad
Isn't it easy sleeping in - Forget your duties and your rights
To just stay put and let them bother - Never to lose, never to win.

3 So you are sure you'll stay in bed - And not to change the things you hate
To play the sheep and trust the shepherd - You always went where you were led
you're so afraid of waking up - Maybe your life is just a nightmare
If you don't look maybe is disappears - And so your eyes and mouth stay shut

Let's die in bed Today - Let's shoot each other cold - The world is dead Today - Let's die in bed
Whether you're there or not – might make a difference- But You disappear - Into a Dream
And I just say – let´s Burn the fucking bed

Let's burn the bed Today - What's there besides to die? The world is cold today - Let's burn the bed
Whether we're there or not - We won`t make a difference - So let's exchange the world - for Another Dream
Track Name: Can`t Breathe
. . . I´m not in control .. I´m not in
I can´t move I can´t think I can´t sleep I can´t live I can´t breathe
I need to need to breathe . . . I need to need to breathe

My fear is to fear it´s oppressing my chest I can´t Breathe
Your hate is my choke it´s suppressing my self I can´t breathe
I´ll never be good enough strong enough wise enough
Can´t stop stupidity can´t save what´s left of me
I can´t move I can´t think I can´t sleep I can´t live I can´t breathe
I need to ... I need to need to breathe
I need to ... I need to need to (bass drop)
I need to ... I need to need to (GP)
. . . I´m not in control ..

This air is poisonous - This world is poisonous - This life is poisonous - This fear is poisonous
This hate is poisonous - This hope is poisonous – I can´t move I can´t think I can´t sleep I can´t live I can´t breathe - I need to ... I need to need to breathe

Toxic toxic toxic - don´t be so obnoxious
- Listen to the gossip - Don´t you change the topic - Don´t ask for the logic -
Shut your mouth and smile And don´t ask why
I´m not in control
I need to ... I need to need to
