If you loved Berlin in the 80s and remember 'The Metro' or 'Sex (I'm a...)' get ready for - Transcendance

Get ready the new Berlin album Transcendance
They were such an iconic band for me in the 80s with a vibe that still works today!
I remember cranking Berlin's Sex (i'm a ...) in my buddy's Camero back in the 80s on our way out to conquer the night. Pleasure Victim is such an amazing debut LP! Their iconic songs still give me the chills today. They've periodically released albums in the past, but the band is back for a 40th anniversary tour and a new album! Coming out in July 2019, Transcendance will be the latest addition to their catalog.

Berlin's Terri Nunn In addition to the new album, Berlin will be on tour with The B-52's and Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark in August and September!

From the Berlin website:
This Los Angeles-based synth pop group, founded by bassist John Crawford, singer Terri Nunn, and keyboard player David Diamond, made its first national impression with the provocative single "Sex (I'm A...)" from the gold-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. The group was filled out by guitarist Rick Olsen, keyboard player Matt Reid, and drummer Rob Brill.

Berlin's first full-length LP was the gold Love Life in 1984. In 1985, the group was pared down to a trio of Crawford, Nunn, and Brill. Berlin topped the charts in 1986 with the single "Take My Breath Away," the love theme from the Tom Cruise movie Top Gun.
