Jinjer commented:

“Some shows just deserve to be carved in stone and memorialized forever. This was the case regarding our first ever Australian tour in March 2020, where we hit a few milestones all at once: we finally played on every continent there is to play on, our first time in down under was a complete sellout and more importantly we experienced the love, passion and craziness we’ve always heard so much about the Australian crowd.

Hell, there were even fans from New Zealand that showed up to the party. Now, after nearly half year of lockdown I can barely watch this footage without shedding a few tears. If any of you knew how much time, patience, nerves and effort we put into making this live album possible- you would probably be surprised we managed to pull it off at all.

Adversity kept coming and coming, and coming at us again and again but here we are ‘Alive In Melbourne‘ 2020 is real and it’s coming out in all it’s visual and sonic glory! Let’s watch it, listen to it and let’s remember how a real metal gig should look and sound: the sweat, the volume, the performance and the crowd … we need this feeling back! I am proud that we managed to capture this place in time and share it with you as our first official live album!”

Jinjer Premiere “Noah” Music Video

Jinjer have premiered a new video for their song “Noah.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Macro.”

Bassist Eugene Abdukhanov commented:

“Tatiana wrote “Noah” from the point of view of what if he did not succeed in perpetuating Life on Earth? Looks like we might find out sooner than we think! Times are scarier, tougher and stranger than ever. Our/your livelihood and everything we know and cherish are on the verge being swept away by a storm like nothing we’ve faced before.

Will we have our own modern day Ark? Will we manage to jump on board in time or has it already set sail? What will be left over after it‘s all said and done? These questions are torturing all of us right now and the future is disturbingly uncertain. But we will survive and will get through this, like we did during so many dark times before. Together. Strong and revitalized with a much better understanding of what we are.”

Watch Jinjer And Suicide Silence Members Cover Nirvana’s “Territorial Pissings”

Jinjer’s Tatiana Shmailyuk and Eugene Abdiukhanov recently teamed up with Suicide Silence’s Alex Lopez for a quarantine cover of Nirvana‘s “Territorial Pissings.” You can see footage of that below. This news comes after Jinjer and Suicide Silence postponed their spring tour due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Jinjer Premiere “Pit Of Consciousness” Live Video

Jinjer have premiered a new live video for their song “Pit Of Consciousness.” The clip was filmed during the band’s November 2019 show in Kiev, Ukraine. The track appears on their latest album “Macro.”

Eugene Abdukhanov commented:

“Back when we recorded this show we were on the tail end of a 6 month tour and somewhere in between all that madness we managed to write and record Macro… it was an extremely stressful time. But it was one of the most positive times of our lives.

Things right now look pretty grim and no one knows what will happen next. We want to release this video with the hopes of letting people know that no matter how crazy, confusing and scary things get – BETTER TIMES are on the way. Let’s use the time at home in isolation to take a good look inside and learn about our true selves…”

Jinjer Premiere “Retrospection” Music Video

Jinjer have premiered a new video for their song “Retrospection.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Macro.”

The group commented:

“‘Retrospection‘ is one of the most personal songs we have ever written. Being a full time touring musician, spending most of the time on the road … of course we are making our biggest dream come true and living each day to the fullest, but nobody mentions that there is a dark side.

We do not see people who devoted themselves to us entirely, who gave us everything they had and more… We miss them and they miss us in return, and yet we should call them more often… much more often than we do.

I am talking about our parents.

For most of the Jinjers, our parents are separated from us not only by distance, but also by war and politics. We don’t have an opportunity to visit our parents even when we are in Ukraine. And it feels like they are on the other side of the planet even if we are literally only 800 km away.

The worst thing is that, now being in our 30s, year after year, it feels like the storm clouds are gathering above. We all know that the day will come when we will feel alone all of a sudden… and we will lose them. The people, but for whom, we’d never make it. The bitter taste of understanding this is almost unbearable.

We look at this song as an anthem to the ones who raised us, who sacrificed everything for the sake of our happiness no matter what the costs, even despite our own thankless and ingratitude towards them. The people who showed us that the purest love ever does exist – the love of the father and mother for their children.

Thank you.

«Наши мамы и папы, мы хотим, чтобы вы знали, что мы тоже вас любим, и что без вас мы бы никогда не добились всего этого и не осуществили бы свою мечту. Спасибо вам за все»
(Mom and Dad, we want you to know that we love you too, if not for you we’d never make it this far and never fulfill our dreams. Thank you for everything.)”

Jinjer have premiered a new video for their song “Pit Of Consciousness.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Macro.” Eugene Abdiukhanov commented:

“This is a song that can be applied to each of us in the band. Living a life at a full pace after years of touring, have we accidentally let someone else into our heads and become foreigners to ourselves? Holding on to the hope that we can keep those doors shut …”
