With a 7" record that sold nearly 2000 copies in just one month, requests for them to play coming from as far away as Denmark and being the only Austrian band to appear on both the covers of a music magazine and a fitness magazine, the members of ArnoCorps thought it was time to take their message to a broader audience. It was apparent to them, based on their observations in the media, that the world was in dire need of their musical liberation. On a brisk Saturday night in November of 1993, ArnoCorps executed the first performance of their European tour at a club in Hamburg, Germany. They were a hit. France, Spain, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands; all were infiltrated and all were conquered. All over Europe, non-Austrians were joining the growing troop of followers affectionally calling themeselves "The 'Corps". Coincidentally, 1993-94 saw a slight increase in Austria's tourism, many of which were younger than older.

Throughout 1994, ArnoCorps toured Europe's hottest clubs and created one of the strongest underground followings since the Sex Pistols in the late 1970's. On the first day of 1995, Holzfeuer and bassist Karl Dichtschnur planned their next move. Most bands would consider tackling the US market, but that night, these two drunken Austrians decided instead that they would take on the Communists. This was the nucleus of what became known as ArnoCorps' Cold Front Tour.
