The band has released four albums so far, their 2003 debut album Wer hat Angst vor Virginia Jetzt? — a reference to the Edward Albee play Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? — followed by Anfänger (English: Beginner) in 2004, Land Unter (English: Land Under) in 2007, and "Blühende Landschaften" (English: "Blooming Landscapes") in 2009.

Anfänger spawned three single releases; "Ein ganzer Sommer" (German Charts # 28, 2004), "Das ganz normale Leben" (# 72, 2004) and "Wahre Liebe" (# 49, 2005).

In 2005, the band represented Brandenburg in the Bundesvision Song Contest 2005, with the song "Wahre Liebe", placing 8th with 54 points.[1]

January 2007 saw the band release their album Land Unter, containing the singles "Bitte bleib nicht, wenn du gehst"(German Charts # 54, 2006) (English: "Please don't stay, if you leave") and "Mehr als das" (# 75, 2007) (English: "More than that").
