Depressive News //////

Don´t miss the farewell gig + EP release at Trägårn in Borås 12/6.
We can guarantee an amazing night... and the new recording (damn!), probably the best songs we´ve ever written. Therefore it feels really good to quit when you are on top, and not because of lack of inspiration. Another great band playing this evening are "The Bad Buddah Gang".

Depressive Art goes separate ways as friends!
(Official statement).

After six years together we have come to the conclusion to take a break and take a very, very, very... long vacation. A few days ago two of the original members Joakim and Sanjin decided to leave the band, sad but true. We have shared many great moments together and are extremely proud of everything we have accomplished and would like to keep it that way. Later on this spring we will release a final EP on our website FOR FREE. This is probably the best material we have ever recorded. We are looking forward to make the minitour in Lattvia + a few extra gigs that will be announced on our website later on.

The Future?
Since it would feel kind of strange to continue playing under the name Depressive Art without Joakim and Sanjin, will Klas, Christian and Torbjörn found a new band with musicians from the Borås area called "The fantastic people". This band will be an upgrade version to Depressive Art 2.0, but with new guitarists and drummer.

Joakim and Sanjin will continue with the band Lucy (, great pop in Swedish, and Marcus is currently looking for a new band.

Bye, bye dear everything!
Klas, Christian, Torbjörn, Joakim, Sanjin & Marcus.
