What an earthquake: Sergei left the band - 2021-08-16 - VAN LESSEN

Pandemic restrictions, no live performances! That was reality for so many bands - just like us!

Due to that unusual situation, VAN LESSEN tended to develop minimal live performances that are suitable for parties, bars and small clubs: 'VAN LESSEN pure'

Sergei, you didn't want that! You decided to remain a really impressive cool rock bass guitar player - yeah that's what you really are - we love you for that! We thank you for all you've done for us and for so many unforgettable memories we will take with us into our graves! Yes, that's what we'll do!

Good luck for your future!

Mother | New Release | VAN LESSEN

In 2014 we recorded some of our songs which have never been released officially so far. These tracks are now available on Apple Music / iTunes, Deezer, Napster, Spotify and Amazon Music.

1. Evolution
This is a song we often played live as a boosting opener. Fast and straight forward. It's about the fear of change, but also about the need for change as evolution commands.

2. Mother
The first half of this track is written in e-phrygian, which gives the song a kind of melancholic mood. The second half is instrumental only. Figuratively speaking: no humans - that means no exploitation but earth recovery - so the second part of the song is building up in a pure pushing rhythm fashion - VAN LESSEN rocks!

3. Eternity
"Till death do us part" - of course that rarely happens. "I've sent you my ear ..." - like Vincent van Gogh, this action was not meant to show that we would stick together forever. An ideal world is phantasy, the real world is punk - let's rock that way!

Video production runs at full blast - first snapshots | Evolution | VAN LESSEN

Ingo van Lessen, 2020-10-06, Bremen

Actually we are working on three video productions. We want to make the tunes already recorded in 2014 and 2015 available on YouTube soon.

Evolution, a piece which we often played as a boosting opener will be the first out of these three releases. This piece was already written about 20 years! ago, but in terms of climate change, the corona pandemic and threatening political autocratic leaderships the lyrics have never been more relevant than now. We are at the beginning of a new evolutionary era and we have to get out of our comfort zone, modify our lifestyle and fight for our future and the future of whole upcoming generations! Yes, we can!

So, because of the relevant lyrics we consequently focus them in the middle of the video. The puristic style will be supplemented with only some photos in solo segments.

Here are some initial snapshots:
