Endless Voids is delayed a bit


Some tough news on the Endless Voids release: we hit a slight delay!

Reason for this delay is basically what you can call the vinyl apocalypse, which is induced by Dire Straits reissues and Record Store Day. Read more about it here.

We will extend the pre-order (and accompanying lower pricing) until June 6th. New release date is June 6th, so the wait is almost over!

Thanks for your patience,
Dead Neanderthals

Pitchfork article

We are featured on ‘The Out Door‘ column on Pitchfork right now. It’s a very cool and elaborate piece on the history of the band! Read the entire thing HERE.


Prime on CD

Prime-CD-mockupWow, those Prime LPs were gone in no-time from the Dead Neanderthals HQ. You might be lucky and find one of the very last copies through Colin Webster or Gaffer Records. Thanks for the massive support!

Because the record sold out quicker than anticipated, we’ve decided to do a second run of this beast on CD. The CDs are currently in production and should be ready early May. You can already pre-order your copy from Bandcamp, we will make sure we ship as soon as we receive our copies.

The New Wave Of Dutch Heavy Jazz is here!

CD in handOkay guys, the totally old-school New Wave Of Dutch Heavy Jazz ‘scene compilation’ is out now.

4 Bands (ALBATRE / Cactus Truck / Donné Et Desirée / Dead Neanderthals) on 1 CD for a rediculously low price.

This CD not only gives a nice (yet incomplete) overview of the Dutch scene, it also shows what you can do when you work together with friends. Super cool on many levels!

Stream it below or buy it on our bandcamp.

Endless Voids pre-order

During last year’s Incubate Festival, we got the oppertunity to perform a very special show at Theaters Tilburg. For this show, entitled ‘Endless Voids’, six renowned artists joined us on stage to form this very special (and probably once in a lifetime) line-up:

Thomas Ekelund (Trepaneringsritualen)
Peter Johan Nÿland (Distel)
Dirk Serries (vidnaObmana)
Steven Vinkenoog (Donné Et Desirée)
Colin Webster (Sex Swing and Dead Neanderthals collaborator!)
Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek and DNMF of course!)
Otto Kokke (Dead Neanderthals)
René Aquarius (Dead Neanderthals)

The entire 80-minute performance was recorded and will be released by Spanish-based label Alone Records on both 2xLP and 2xCD. The album will be out on May 25th but can be fully streamed and pre-ordered here or by clicking on the player below.
