Biography

“Brass meets strong rhythm and guitars, resulting in a dusty sound reminiscent of bigger cities in summer, not to be found in Holland at all. They surprise you with every turn they make on their instrumental journey where trumpet, guitars, bass and drum alternately do battle and make peace and love.”

We vs. Death is a Dutch indierock band, founded in 2000. Since then the band has put out a few releases and has been touring throughout Europe, Canada, Russia and Japan.

History

In the second half of 2000 a couple of like-minded musicians find each other at Utrecht University in Netherlands and decide to start a band.

Almost right away they choose to make instrumental music, that by lack of a better term can be described as post-rock. Other bands categorised as post-rock are for example Explosions in the Sky, Slint, Mogwai, Tomàn and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Anno 2008 we vs .death moved to using more vocals and harmonies, the sound evolved to more song-based material. a new album is expected march 2009

In the Netherlands We vs. Death is still the most successful exponent of the genre, that nowadays becomes more popular among bands.

Since they started the band has been playing venues on a regular basis, and since 2003 they have been playing outside the Netherlands as well. In the meantime they played venues in Belgium, England, Canada, France, Russia, Poland, Denmark, Germany and Japan We vs. Death alternately plays large venues like Paradiso, 013, Vera and Tivoli and small-scale venues and squats like the ACU and the OCCII.
