M.I.N.E release new single "The One"


20 Years Camouflage Website and "Thief" X-Mas Download 2017

(2017/12/24) 2017 was not only the year of the 30th anniversary of the first camouflage single "The Great Commandment", but also the 20th anniversary of the camouflage online presence by Camouflage-Info-Services from Jena. We want to take this milestone birthday as an opportunity and go on a digital journey through time with you.
Let's start our journey in 1999, in the year in which camouflage released their first single again as a trio and also when Jochen Schmalbach was for the first time responsible for additional production and mixing. "Thief" was the first harbinger of the 2003 released album "Sensor".
At you will find the Camouflage Website as of July 1999, two weeks after the release of "Thief". Fittingly, this year's Christmas download is a previously unreleased Extended Version of the song "Thief". Optimized by the "Devote Jena" DJ Team especially for clubs, this version has been edited based on the "layout" versions much sought after by camouflage fans and has a length of 5m 55s.


Have fun listening, merry christmas and a happy new year to you
Camouflage and the info team.

The Story of the Forgotten Composer

(2017/12/17) While performing as a trio of Peter Heppner, Kim Sanders, and Marcus Meyn for the “30 Years of Peter Heppner Tour” on stage, a spark of enthusiasm spread from the stage to the audience. Backstage many special moments and excited exchanges occurred regarding the artists’ individuals carriers. One such exchange resulted in a story worth sharing: It was discovered that Kim Sanders after 14 years had still never heard the recording of the song “I Can’t Feel You”, a song for which she wrote which is found on Camouflage’s album Sensor and which was released as a single. At the time her record company and management had forgotten to send her a copy of the tracks. Marcus did not hesitate long and took the opportunity in the name of the band to present her the 3 released recordings of “I Can’t Feel You”.

Marcus appears as a special guest during the “30 Years of Peter Heppner” Tour

(2017/11/25) After Peter Heppner appeared as guest during Camouflage’s 30th Anniversary Concert in Dresden, Marcus has now appeared as guest vocalist supporting Peter Heppner’s 30th Anniversary Tour. In already 5 cities Marcus joined Peter on vocals and they performed together the two Camouflage songs “That Smiling Face” and “Count on Me” as well as the Wolfsheim song “Kein Zurück”. An additional guest, Kim Sanders, joined the concerts in Dresden and Erfurt as well as the final concert today in Potsdam. The American singer Kim Sanders should also not be unfamiliar to Camouflage fans since she wrote Camouflage’s hit “I Can’t Feel You”.

"Chase" - X-Mas Download 2016

(2016/12/24) Camouflage wishes you a Merry Christmas and a healthy New Year with "Chase"!
"Chase" is a song that has never made it onto an album and has remained as a demo. The version for the download is from the year 2002 as a pre-Sensor track. However, a good part of the melody in the refrain found its way into the "Relocated" song "Passing By". The text remains of course also in a demo character. "Chase" has been traveling with us for a while now.
An interesting tidbit: Some of the sounds in the demo originate from the world of "Spice Crackers". Point of reference: Choir sounds and atmosphere from "Rhonda's Trigger"


M.I.N.E - First information and live dates

(2016/02/21) Due to the fact that Camouflage will pause in 2016, Marcus is using the time to start M.I.N.E - a project together with Jochen Schmalbach, Volker Hinkel and Jakob Nebel. At the moment they are in studio.
Sometime between Moscow, Berlin, and Lima while traveling together around the world for Camouflage, Jochen, Marcus, and Volker wished to develop a new project outside of the bounds of the band Camouflage.
In order to foster a greater level of discovery as a trio, they established a rule early on - anything goes as long as all three of the participants had a interest. The past met the present and the future with a exploration ranging from deep house to Oasis, minimalism to the bombastic, Kraftwerk to the Sex Pistols.
Jakob Nebel, who joined as the last of the members, completes the group with his musical sense and versatility and has helped distill songs out of the many ideas.
The process has produced a mix of Dark Electronic and Guitars, which in their diversity bridge between Electro-Wave, Goth, Pop and Punk.
What does M.I.N.E mean? The band name points partly to the phonetically correct pronunciation of Marcus' surname Meyn. However the name also represents the individual commitment to the musical collaboration between the 4 men.

M.I.N.E are:
Drums: Jochen Schmalbach, sound engineer, songwriter and producer for acts including Klangkarussell, Tiefschwarz, Alphaville, Stanfour, Thomas D, and many more.
Vocals: Marcus Meyn, songwriter and singer of Camouflage.
Guitars: Volker Hinkel, songwriter, producer and guitarist of Fools Garden, who stormed the international charts with their hit “Lemon Tree”.
Guitars and Keyboards: Jakob Nebel, songwriter and guitarist of the band Livingston.

Two shows are already confirmed in Oberhausen as special guests of Mesh and at the Sazava festival in the Czech republic.
More shows will be announced soon ...
