In February 2003 the band went on a three-weeks promotional tour for their album Willkommen im Beerdigungscafé

In September 2007 they signed a contract with Edition TAKK, a publishing company associated with Sony/ATV Music Publishing Germany. With a tour in winter 2007 the EP Fauler Zauber Dunkelherz was promoted. After that drummer Sven Wasel was replaced by Bodo Stricker.

In May 2008 the band signed a contract with Nuclear Blast.[1] Their label debut Zombieactionhauptquartier contained 13 songs. It was produced by Eike Freese in Hamburg and was published on November 28, 2008.[2] The album features a song “Porn from Spain” with K.I.Z rapping as guest singers.

In March 2010 the band uploaded their third album Videodrom to their Myspace page. It was released on 3 April 2010 and entered the German Media Control Charts at No. 31. The Album is inspired by David Cronenberg‘s film Videodrome.[3]
