Not So Stoner, But Quite Alright (Part 2)

Like DeWolff and Triggerfinger I saw De Staat in an one minute performance in the TV show De Wereld Draait Door (Which means As The World Turns and... it's not the long running soap!). De Staat is like Triggerfinger also a band from the label Excelsior Recordings. When you listen to their debut Wait For Evolution you will hear great music with some strange rhythms. And you will find out that some of the influences are QOTSA (Them again?!) and The Eagles Of Death Metal. Maybe you like it and maybe you don't. But let me know what you think by leaving a comment! Enjoy!

"Josh Homme will ride the speakers when he hears this record" wrote the largest Dutch music website 3voor12 about De Staat's upcoming full length debut Wait For Evolution, right after calling them the most promising band for 2009.

Fully recorded in the old house of singer/guitarist Torre Florim, who's been producing some of the filthiest underground bands in Holland, Wait For Evolution had a more unusual approach than the average rock record.
With the help of befriended musicians like The Bloody Honkies and Fuck The Writer, Florim worked layer by layer, in his 'Fun House', for over a year on songs with attractive titles like... 'Meet The Devil', 'The Fantastic Journey Of The Underground Man' and 'We're Gonna Die'.
In September 2007 De Staat found its perfect line-up. With Tim van Delft on drums, the Croatian Vedran Mircetic on guitar, Jop van Summeren on bass and Rocco Bell mastering the keys, beatring and cowbell, there's no question that Torre Florim has some diverse company on his side. A powerful five-headed coalition, showing its love for the old roots music, though not afraid to put that in a new and refreshing perspective.
Since then they've done shows in every possible setting, from small bars to big clubs with bands like Fu Manchu and the Belgian dEUS.

"2009 will be the year of De Staat" said Eric Corton, DJ for the biggest Dutch radio station 3FM. So it won't be a surprise that they've recently got a record deal with the unique and legendary label Excelsior Recordings.
