… We are very excited to announce that we will play a handful of shows in Germany and Switzerland this September! As a band we have always pushed 100% to get our music out to you and we feel like this is a chance to get back to some sort of normality this year … it's end of Summer and right before the Fall, with many successful shows played in both countries the last few months. If there is any way to safely perform again – for us and for you – WE MUST TAKE THE CHANCE! Tickets are very limited and all shows will follow local governmental Safety and Social Distancing guidelines … See you very soon! photo: @javierbragado . .

Jinjer, Zlam, & Violateress Members Cover Sepultura’s “Mask”

Eugene Abdukhanov (Jinjer), Vladislav Ulasevich (Jinjer), Oleg (Zlam), and Sergey (Violateress) recently teamed up for a quarantine cover of Sepultura‘s “Mask.“ The group said the following about that:

“Taking the opportunity during lockdown to honor one of the best metal bands EVER, the mighty Sepultura, Vlad and Eugene joined fellow Ukrainian musicians/friends in Zlam and Violateress to cover “Mask” – not only a classic banger but it also fits the current state of the world today! Let the mask you put on your face entering stores be the only one you ever wear. Peace, Love and Harmony – Stay Safe and ENJOY!”

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.”

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.)”
