With a truckload of musical experience, Douwe, Sander, Gertjan and Barry formed a brand new band – one that radiates unbridled punk energy. The four had each toured the world with Death Alley, Birth of Joy, and Vanderbuyst, but those heavier sounds now give way to the pure pleasure and catchy tunes of Splinter.
Splinter is cut from the same cloth as those cheeky youths, contrasting the grey and dull establishment with its neat and tidy venues and endlessly recycled music. Splinter wants to unite those who are looking to find alternatives and break new ground rather than run with the herd. That may sound like a serious ambition, and maybe it is, but in the end it all boils down to the raw energy that brings people together. And that happens to be exactly what this band is all about.
This energy, combined with a formidable assembly of musical talent, led the band to accidentally record their first full-length album in a two-day studio session. The initial idea was to record one single that weekend.
Splinter’s debut album “Filthy Pleasures” was shot into the world in September 2021, and was the first release on the brand new Berlin-based label Robotor Records, founded and run by the guys from Kadavar. In 2023 the band signed to Noisolution Records, bring on the new stuff!
