So Trainwreck is over and done. The last song has been played, the feedback has faded and everyone scattered in all directions again. After 10 years we layed the beast to rest this past weekend. It´s been a worthy end for Trainwreck, closing this chapter where it started a decade prior: One last communion at the beloved AZ with three bands we´ve played numerous shows together. Besides Svffer, Sleep Kit and Jungbluth all the people that came around from near and far to say goodbye (big ups to Vlad on this occasion for coming all the way from Romania!) made this a great experience. It´s been incredible seeing lot´s of those who accompanied our little band throughout the years whether it being through befriending us, setting up shows, sharing stages, putting out records or just coming to our shows for years – thanks dearly! Needless to say a few of those faces were missed, but i´m sure we´ll meet again sometime soon. Let´s see if we can put together a comprehensive thanks-list within the next few weeks. In the meantime, the fine folks at xclusivex.com filmed the whole show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GbMzAcOKEA
Thanks for the show and keep in mind:
„Well now everything dies baby that’s a fact
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back.“
“Old departures, new beginnings” – the title of our last record and many of the topics in the lyrics were very programmatic: it wasn´t just general themes of change running through the songs, but a lot of the songs were written specifically dealing with changes concerning Trainwreck.
Nothing in life is constant, except for change – this holds as much truth for our little band as it does for everything else. Since we started Trainwreck in 2005 a lot of things have changed, some for better, some for worse. During the last years all these things in their entirety made keeping Trainwreck going incredibly hard for us and now we´ve reached a point where we simply can´t continue the band the way we´d like to.
So now, 10 years after its inception in some stuffy rehearsal room in Aachen, we´ve decided to put Trainwreck to rest.
However we don´t want to leave quietly, but finish with a bang: Closing
the circle we´ll play a final show on October 17th at our homebase the
We´re also extremely fortunate and happy to have some of our friends´ bands sharing the stage with us for one last time, as we´ll have our homies Sleep Kit and road dawgs Svffer and Jungbluth throwing the party together with us. Needless to say we´d love to see as many of you as possible joining in the festivities! ♥!
