KING APATHY (former THRÄNENKIND) to split up as a band, final shows!


„The destruction of everything is the beginning of something new“ Refused

This band has seen many different and beautiful places, musicians, activists and helping hands over the years. We learned a lot, discussed, argued and ate a whole lot of vegan cake along the way. 
Being a part of Thränenkind / King Apathy was something really special for all of us. We had to learn different musical roles and how to manage a band in different ways. Whoever saw us in the first years might know why we used samples between the songs and why Nils doesn’t talk that much anymore. 😉 Most of you might already know where this text is leading to, so we will make it short from here: 

King Apathy decided to split up as a band.

We live in 4 different cities in Germany and sadly the asshole called reality (or capitalism!) forces us into 9-5 jobs. It’s difficult to keep this band active over the distance and we barely find the time to rehearse or play any shows. 

We are really happy with our latest record “Wounds” and it feels good to end this band after having released the best album we could write. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing feedback we got for this record. It means the world to us!

Hugs go out to: Nico, Flo, Mo, Manu, Martin, Robert and Dave for being a part of the band or helping us out on tour. Stefan and Lifeforce Records for releasing our music and believing in us through all these years. All the people and labels who released specials editions or tape versions. Marco, Ivonne and the whole Avocado crew for sending us out on tour with awesome bands like Hierophant, Kowloon Walled City and Ghost Bath. In general we wanna thank all the local promoters, squats and concert groups who invited us to play, gave us food and a warm place to crash. 

We want to thank Timo and Alerta Antifascista Records & Robby and Supreme Chaos Records for their continuing support.

Kisses go out to our lovely friends in Ancst and Dawn Day´d  and Anna and Simon for helping us out on the second record. We love you!

You can catch most of us with our other bands: CLEARxCUT, Cremations, The Cold, Heretoir or Kultist.

We will play three final shows:
13.7.19 Hardcore Help Foundation Summer Fest, Halver
27.7.19 Fluff Fest, Rokycany 
16.8.19 Summer Breeze Open Air, Dinkelsbühl

“Be excellent to each other” Bill and Ted

PS There is no second Earth! We need to protect what is left of it! The time to act is NOW!

KING APATHY’s final album “Wounds” out now on Lifeforce Records.
