Friends, welcoming someone new to a band always means the departure of a band member, so it is a very ambiguous feeling today. Sadly we have to announce that our long-time drummer from the very first hours of the “new” Disillusion back in 1999 – Jens Maluschka – has left the band. This was and is a very smooth process that happened over the past months and we are all still friends, Jens just cannot make it anymore. We came back together after some years after GLORIA to create and release ALEA and to prepare for a new album, the third Disillusion record. Things then went really quick again and we always try to give our best. Sometimes, we just cannot give 100% everywhere … In his own words:
The last 3 years have been intense, creative and exciting. We released “ALEA” and had cool concerts. But now is the time for me to go new ways. I would like to thank the guys for the cooperation and of course the fans that you have always believed in and supported us. I wish Disillusion all the best for the future and of course a terrific 3rd album!Jens
Of course we will miss Jens a lot – his style and personality have been a very strong part of the band for many years. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING JENS!
But today is also a day of joy: let us introduce the man who fills the empty seat: JOSH SALDANHA!! Welcome to the family, Josh! So, the leaving of Jens went very smooth and Josh and we got together very smoothly also over the past months. Josh moved to Germany from Dubai almost a year ago and has already become part of the band in every aspect. And we are very happy about that and him 🙂 Again, welcome Josh! Of course Josh will play the drums on the soon to come new album and we all are very much looking forward to that. He brings an energy that moves ahead this band in 2018 so much. So glad you are here!

Dear friends, from the day we started our Patreon support campaign for the new disillusion album in march it all went so absolutely amazing and fast. Your support is huge and we were able to start making his record right away! And now we even reached the “final” goal : writing, recording and working with a producer to achieve the best possible sound is now financed!!!! THANK YOU ALL so much for this opportunity! Please be assured, we are working hard on the new songs and also we are working hard to give the band a kickstart when the album comes out, being prepared to hit the big stages (again)!
Now – we definitely do not want be greedy: the campaign of course will be going for one year and if we keep that level of your financial support, things are going to work out perfectly. Anyway, there is always a certain need for investments and improvements in many ways. If you want to support us beyond the Patreon campaign goal then please feel free to contact us!! No Cent will be wasted. Also it is possible that some of our patrons will not be able to support us all the way through the year. This is perfectly alright with us and absolutely understandable. We will continue to promote our campaign to keep that financial level.
Thank you all again and talk to you very soon!
We are finally starting work on the new – third – Disillusion album! We have done a lot in the past months and we did it all with you! Thank you very much for your support and believing in the band!!! But today we want to open a whole new chapter … AND WE NEED YOUR HELP! We started a campaign on PATREON.com | www.patreon.com/disillusion | where YOU can support DISILLUSION so that the Third Disillusion album will finally come!
We cordially invite you to take look at our campaign, read through everything and we look forward to your support! You will find detailed information on the Patreon page of Disillusion. Andy is already writing new songs in the forest in exile for quite fresh ideas and peace.
Friends, we can do this! Thank you for your support!!!
Friends, sad news is that Jens will not be able to play with us at the Complexity Fest 2017 on 25th Feb due to family reasons … BUT we have this amazing young gentleman Max Weißenfels supporting us on drums for that evening! Believe us, this is going to be great! See you there ….
Friends, We wish you a wonderful 2017, great new experiences and good luck with everything you are doing!
We can look back on a good year with the band: after many years we realeased our new EP ALEA, which we are very proud of – we have grown as a band, were on tour and we are very optimistic that our plans for 2017 will be going well.
We like to thank you very much for your support, for listening to ALEA and celebrating its release live with us on our tour in fall of last year.
Now it is time for the big goal: the third Disillusion album. We are very excited!
In the meantime we will play some shows and are already preparing for the Complexity Festival in February.
We’ll see you very soon!
