CRIPPER 2005-2018

cripper 2005

Today we have some serious news to announce. We decided to break up Cripper in the middle of the year.

The last few years were quite restless in the Cripper camp and sometimes also very exhausting. When we started our adventure 13 years ago, our lives and private interests were much more alike than they are now. To unite these worlds and ways of life while at the same time pursuing this very precious bond it takes to run this band, has become harder and harder. It is increasingly burdening those who want to take their foot off the gas and also those who prefer to accelerate more. We hinder each other, which has a crippling effect on all sides.

To be honest, there is no strength and motivation to keep going. This in no way means that Cripper is no longer important to us. On the contrary. This band and the journey that lies behind us takes a huge place in our hearts. You fans and friends out there gave us more than we ever imagined. We want to preserve this feeling and - even if it sounds pathetic - cherish it. So instead of squeezing out the last bit of everything and end up playing our songs completely worn out and lacking any enthusiam, we pull the ripcord here.

It may not feel easy, but it is still right to take that step. For us as soon-to-be former members of the band Cripper, this breakup will have a relieving effect and might also inspire one or the other to pursue new musical or artistic chapters.

We will play all show that are announced on our online channels until the end of June at full throttle and highly motivated! Maybe we will even add some more gigs in addition to the already confirmed shows. Let's see what's going to happen and what we want to do together. We look forward to seeing you!
