About BORN FOR BLISS:

1997; Born for Bliss, existing since 1994, awakes with the overwhelming "Flowing with the Flu". The roots of this fact are placed over a decade ago. In those times the Dutch Born for Bliss-members Frank Weyzig and Willem van Antwerpen created thrilling sounds together with the still cultic (Clan of) Xymox. During the early, exiting period of this electronic-wave legend (mid, till end of the 80s), Frank and Willem have been involved in this band. From this period result the first two Xymox albums which are still classic highlights.

Since 1995 the third member of Born for Bliss is Remco Helbers. He found his way to Born for Bliss via the Dreamside and Love Like Blood on stage. With his distinguished style of playing bass, the ‘Chapman Stick’, and his unique way of working with loops and soundscapes, Remco adds a special dimension to the Born For Bliss sound.

Together, this trio guarantees an ultimate seductive soundoutput which was proved impressively by their prereleased cd-single "Arabia" (for 'Nuclear Blast - Deathwish Office') in 1996. In the same year this single became an addicting clubhit and made it's way high into the German alternative charts.

We're back in 1997. 'Flowing with the Flu' marked Born for Bliss' long desired longplay-debut. "With Impressive elegance the band produced a couple of fascenating pearls. Prickling melodic changes between melancholy and dynamics along with 80s charme and 90s-scenery makes their music an electrifying experience. Already in the first week after its release, 'Flowing with the Flu' enters high into the German alternative album-charts".

In 1999, Born For Bliss finished the final recordings for their next album "Between Living and Dreaming", mixed at the famous Impulse Tonstudio in Hamburg by J. P. Genkel, known for his work with 'Lacrimosa' and 'Cradle of Filth'. Unfortunately, not long after the final recordings of "Between Living and dreaming", the band disintegrated due to problems with their management and record label and the album was never released.

At the same time Frank Weyzig disappeared from the music scene for more than a decade and during that time the master tapes for the album were laying unused on the shelves in his studio untill Frank established himself again on the horizon of alternative music with his contribution for White Rose Transmission as co-writer, band member and producer for their album ‘Spiders in the Mind Web’, released on German label Echozone in 2010.

Echozone liked the idea to do a release of the long forgotten Born For Bliss album 'Between Living & Dreaming'. In 2011 the album finally saw the light of day and the rebirth of Born For Bliss was a fact. In 2013 the band officially got back together again and subsequently released their follow up EP 'Innocent'.

In June 2015 Frank Weyzig completed a succesful MusicPledge Crowdfunding campaign to get funding for the new Born For Bliss album 'Falling Back to Never', to be released in September 2015, together with a re-release of the first album 'Flowing With the Flu' as a remastered version with extra added tracks and remixes.

Track Name: If Only
If Only

If only you’d listen
If only you’d care
If you’d still remember
Those moments we shared

If only you would
If only you could
If only you wanted
You know that you should

If only you’d listen
If only you tried
If only you’d give it
A little more time

If only you’d talk to me
Speak to me now
If only, If only
So godamn lonely

Now you’re turning the pages
In your book of lies
You can’t even look at me
Straight in the eyes

If only you’d tell me
That this is not real
If only you’d show me
The way that you feel

If only you’d listen
If only you tried
If only you’d give it
A little more time

If only you’d talk to me
Speak to me now
If only, If only
So godamn lonely

Track Name: She
She

She is with me
And her love grows like a tree
All over me
She is with me
And her love grows endlessly

And now it comes to a conclusion
I still haven’t got a clue
Am I living an illusion
Am I flowing with the flu

And sometimes I’ll be nice
But mostly I’m a creep
I want her by my side
But I can’t give her what she needs

She is with me
And her love grows like a tree
All over me
She is with me
And her love grows endlessly

I never pay attention
When she tries to give her best
I only seem to care about
The solving of my quest

With a strange kind of perfection
I’m working my way down
She will be my savior
I will wear her crown

She is with me
And her love grows like a tree
All over me
She is with me
And her love grows endlessly

Will she open up my window
Will she unlock my door
Will she lead me to the river
Will she help me cross the water
Will she help me reach the shore
Will she help me fight this Dragon
That makes me loose this war

She is with me
And her love grows like a tree
All over me
She is with me
And her love grows endlessly

And now it comes to a conclusion
I still haven’t got a clue
Am I living an illusion
Am I flowing with the flu

And sometimes I’ll be nice
But mostly I’m a creep
I want her by my side
But I can’t give her what she needs

She is with me
And her love grows like a tree
All over me
She is with me
And her love grows endlessly

She is with me

And sometimes I’ll be nice
