Exilent - "Born To Struggle" + tour dates

"Exilent is a D-Beat// Crust// Hardcorepunkband from Hannover// Germany which was formed in 2009. After a few changes in the lineup we started playing shows in 2010 and released our five song demo-cd “D-Beat Overkill Hangover“ in January 2011. One year and many shows later we recorded our first album, the “Born to Struggle“ LP, which we released by ourselves and with the help of Antikörper-Export. In summer 2012, we toured in Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia.

In reviews and by listeners, the sound often was compared to bands like Fleas'n Lice or Detestation. As written by every member of the band, the lyrics are characterized by a great variety of themes and treat political as well as personal issues. They all have in common a socio-critical attitude.

Due to dramatic events in 2012, several changes of members took place. Lonski is now playing Bass instead of Paul, who died last summer and had supported Exilent since the beginning. Also the male and female vocals on the LP now have been reduced to the latter one.

After a necessary break and with a new set,

Exilent (now) are: Ini Vocals

Nico Guitar, Backing-vocals

Lisa Guitar, Backing-vocals

Lonski Bass, Backing-vocals

Trecker, Drums"
