When the band was founded in September '09 the date for their first gig was already set. Preperations are hasty at best. None the less, the line-up of David Kuri (Vocals/Guitar), Jendrik Seiler (Guitar), Steffen Kurth (Bass) and Lauritz Jilge (Drums) is an instant hit. Under these circumstances the almost six weeks of time are more than enough to write and learn enough songs to play their very first show. These same songs are recorded and put on the EP Wanted, which is released in October 2009. The mixture of raw sound and relentless energy convince fans and critcs alike, which leads to a festival show and an interview
at a local radio station.
In April 2011 the band record their first full length release Don't Touch While Running. Since Wanted is fully out of stock at this point a few songs are re-release. Don't Touch broadens the band's sound and „takes the listener back to the good old days from the first second onward” (metal.de). Further succesfull open air shows with bands such as Destruction and Ensiferum follow. While fans seem to enjoy the show, the local promoter of a small, genre free festival in Germany seems to be unable to cope with the sheer volume and cuts the band's power during a live-television recording.
Thanks to the support of their fans Booze Control manage to score a show in Hamburg during the Hard Rock Rising contest 2013 and win the semifinals of the Black Temple Band Contest 2013. December 13th 2013 marks the release of the band's first studio release, boldly titled Heavy Metal, which was well received by critics and fans alike. After 2013 which was dominated by rehearsals and recoding sessions, Booze Control are currently negotiating with agencies and labels.
