De Staat Bubble Gum Limited Gatefold Vinyl 2LP Set


“I know our music goes all over the place,” laughs De Staat vocalist, lyricist and rhythm guitarist Torre Florim. “You don’t even want to know how often we’ve heard from the industry, ‘We can’t place you in any box!’ I’m sorry, but we can’t do anything else – to me, this is exactly what we need to do…”

He needn’t apologise. In the best way possible, De Staat are a rock band opening the floodgates to an intoxicating, even dizzying, array of genres on their epic fifth studio album, Bubble Gum, released on January 18 2019 via Caroline International. Not that this is particularly unusual for them, mind; it’s been woven into their DNA since day one.

First envisioned by Torre in 2006 as something of a challenge to himself; before there was a group, there was a one-man project in Nijmegen, Holland. “I was making so much music, all different kinds,” grins Torre. “I just wanted to see if I could make something that sounded like one thing!” Having wrangled said sounds together, that ‘one thing’ would soon become known as De Staat – translated as ‘The State’ – and their 2009 debut, Wait For Evolution. With a line-up completed by lead guitarist Vedran Mircetic, bassist Jop van Summeren, multi-instrumentalist Rocco Hueting and drummer Tim van Delft, what De Staat have achieved since those fledgling days is remarkable.
