In 2003 Singer/Songwriter Krizz Kowski
heard of the talented graphic artist / musician Alex Labes. Collaborating on a cover design for Kowksi’s band, Sunny Sixkiller, the two immediately discovered they have a similiar mindset about music and almost instantly decided to produce a song together.
     ”Heart of Man“, the result of a one night session, convinced Porcupine Tree Mastermind Steven Wilson to offer a helping hand on the project. Suddenly they realized they had the beginnings of a promising band.
     Based on a Frankie goes to Hollywood
song, the two decided to call the band ”Lunar Bay“. Impressed by Frankie’s revolutionary concept – its diversity, corporate identity and production, the band felt this particular song title expressed their ambition to become a skyrocketing act and was also evocative of a distant view of Earth, main theme of Kowski’s lyrics.
     Immediately after listening to one of the band's first demos, Gunnar Spies – drummer of German top 10 group Mia – joined the promising act.
     In early 2004 DJ Martin Pallgen of popular Radio Eins got crazy about the track ”Audience“ and played it regularly on his show.




After hearing it there, club DJ and producer
Arno Henning contacted the band. He remixed the intense ballad ”Audience“ and the straight- forward rocker ”King Midas“. Lunar Bay then decided to record a track called ”Sweetness“ together with Henning’s electronic act Mighty Fruitz, which was released on Carepack records at the end of August 2005.
     In April of 2005 Archive Singer Craig Walker (who has been quoted as saying: ”It’s the best new music I have heard for a very long time“) invited the band to London to discuss its latest material and a future collaboration.
     With a bunch of great songs, the band
headed back to their home studio to work on pre-production for their ”Planet Whore“ EP. Around this time guitarist Gernot Pohle and the keyboarder ”Else“ Ehlers joined the band.
     The release of ”Planet Whore“ on the bands ”Panacea“ label completes the first chapter...

Ready to launch
Lunar Bay will only be playing 2 exclusive

the record release party of the brand new
2EP ”Planet Whore“. Very special guest
Mighty Fruitz are joining the show, who
already remixed a couple of Lunar Bay
songs. The second show will take place in
Leipzig in a very special venue: the old
Cinema ”UT-Kino“ – invited by fabulous
act Palestar. Lunar Bay are proud to share
a show with them. A bigger tour is planned
for the second half of the year.
