It should come as no surprise that the pioneers of Action-Adventure Hardcore Rock and Roll claim to be “The Greatest Band of All Time”. Since their 2001 arrival in the burgeoning San Francisco Bay Area music scene, ArnoCorps has paved a steady, disciplined and often destructive path to ensure that all those who bear witness to their live Action Adventure Audio Assault agree with their ballsy assertion.

Initially, one might perceive ArnoCorps as merely a group of six highly-trained militant Austrian action-rock heroes. Big mistake. The motivation behind the band is far too complex to be defined by such superficial characteristics. With powerful anthems including Terminator, Commando, Predator and Total Recall, the band has been singularly responsible for restoring integrity to the many Austrian tales that have been exploited by nefarious movie moguls for financial and political gain.

ArnoCorps' explosive live performances don't depend on pyrotechnics or props to create excitement. Although known for hurling audience members record distances and bending steel microphone stands as displays of physical strength, there is no need to fear ArnoCorps; they are a rescue team, not assassins. ArnoCorps performances have evolved to the point where attendees are no longer merely observers, but willing participants in a life-changing event. Many audience members claim to leave with increased muscle mass, a better understanding of life's mysteries and feeling like “goddamn heroes and sheroes.”

In their chronicling of heroic tales of great deeds and fantastic adventures, these visionaries have become symbols of empowerment through their ballsy defiance of cinematic Austroploitation. The loyalty of ArnoCorps fans has become legendary, with their donning of combat fatigues and camo face paint at live audio assaults, a growing number of ArnoCorps tattoos and repeated incidents of fans flying overseas just to experience ArnoCorps live.

ArnoCorps conducted headline tours of the UK and Ireland in 2006, 2008 and 2012. Amassing critical acclaim by the British press, including a perfect 10 out of 10 rating from the BBC, they were most recently described as “the most fun live show you could imagine” by Metal Hammer. 2013 saw ArnoCorps present their fans with the opportunity to determine the recording budget of their next release via Kickstarter, a crowdsourcing website. Earning over $16k, the band hit the studio with Grammy Award winning Producer/Engineer Michael Rosen to track the fantasy-adventure themed record, “The Fantastic EP”.

As a companion piece to “The Fantastic EP”, ArnoCorps designed and built an innovative fitness app, “Wheel of Pain Push-Ups” for iOS devices. Released in early 2014, the app features dynamic real-time verbal feedback based on measured user performance. Lead vocalist Holzfeuer‘s coaching is delivered on top of a pump-inducing ArnoCorps soundtrack, leading you through a scientifically developed 10-stage exercise program.

Having just signed with Jello Biafra’s legendary AlternativeTentacles Records, ArnoCorps has announced their return to the UK and Ireland this July, 2014, supportingThe Fantastic EP, the Wheel of Pain Push-Ups app, and the vinyl release of their now-classic full length, “The Greatest Band Of AllTime”.
