Friends, unfortunately our shows in Wien, Salzburg and Innsbruck at the end of the month had to be cancelled due to the Corona Virus situation. We are very sorry, but of course we support the general decree issued by the Austrian government, the developements are not to be taken lightly. The local promoters and we give our best to find new dates for the shows whenever it will be possible. At the moment we have no ideas when these will take place. For now, your TICKETS will be refunded at the participating booking offices!! Again, we are sorry … hope to see you all very soon. Stay save and healthy!
Two monhts after the release of our new album THE LIBERATION today the third video off the record is out: TIME TO LET GO. Shot in the beautiful Elbsandsteingebirge, a national park here in eastern Germany, we believe the landscapes and pictures very well reflect our ideas of deceleration, acceptance and understanding.
Thank You to everyone involved in making this video! And please enjoy …
The future is now … some days ago we had a very intense brunch to talk about everything we want to make happen in the near future and how it can be done. Of course we also talked a lot about a new record! THE LIBERATION being released only two months ago makes things seem a little awkward, but we feel ready to take the next steps: new album, writing new music, new ideas … and all has already begun … absolutely excited to go onto this next journey!
Off to new horizons …
Amazing: THE LIBERATION enters German Album Top 100 on #45!
Crazy, we would habe never believed that would be possible. Thank You all for making this possible 🙂

“The Liberation is a deceptively easy album to listen to, to the point where it’s also incredibly easy to lose yourself in it and, as a result, lose almost a full hour”
“And see that this album is fantastic, in the here and now. Let us be liberated from the past.”
” … denn eins sind DISILLUSION bei aller Virtuosität geblieben: Arschtretender, emotionaler Metal!”

Friends, today we officially welcome this fine gentleman MARTIN SCHULZ in the Disillusion family! Martin has taken Josh Saldahna’s seat and we already played an outstanding Patreon exclusive show in May together where we presented the new album! Martin fits in as if he has always been here – soooo welcome Martin!!!
And he wishes to let you know the following:
I’m so happy about the honor of being part of Disillusion.
I have known Andy and Sebastian for many years from other projects, so the decision for me was made quickly. I’m really looking forward to getting involved in songwriting and seeing you live at the shows soon, to bring on Disillusion the pulse they deserve.
Many thanks and cheers !
If you were at the show, please drop Martin a note at our socials!! 🙏
This of course also means that Josh has left the band. Already some time ago, Josh has made a decision about his family plannings that we of course understand, respect and support. Besides all the – partly insane – bureaucratic necessities one has to fulfill to become a resident of this republic, a conflict of time and resources would have been inevitable – and already existed late last year.
So we faced the crazy decision and parted ways without ever having played live together. But … it’s the right thing.
Also Josh has some words for all of you:
For a few months, I’ve been mulling over this decision, but I have ultimately decided that my time with Disillusion must, unfortunately, come to an (untimely) end.
Having moved to a new country, the realities of settling into my new home, learning a new language, tending to my growing family and so on has been unexpectedly more difficult than any of us could have anticipated it being. It has put me at a crossroads where I was forced into a position to choose where I should be investing my time and energy.
With everything going on around me at the moment, the timing just wasn’t right. Making commitments simply could not be as straightforward as they should have been for both my family and the band, and it’s just not how I like to do things, nor is it fair on anybody either. In an ideal world, life wouldn’t require more than just music to keep the lights on, but that is unfortunately not the case.
This hasn’t been an easy decision for me to make, but I truly believe that it is the right one – for both the band and myself. Disillusion has worked incredibly hard in the last few years to build up the momentum that they have gained so far and I didn’t want to hold them back. I feel that they deserve more.
I want to thank all of you for being so incredibly patient, dedicated and for the incredible support you have shown us. I will also be eagerly cheering Disillusion on from the sidelines along with all of you, and I wish them the very best of luck.
So, thank you for everything, Josh! Your spirit and warmth and personality have enriched the band so much during the process of this new record! These are your songs as well!
Andy & Dis.
For all Patrons: there is a “Good-Bye” Video from Josh waiting for you at Patreon

Friends, we have amazing news for you – OUR NEW ALBUM IS FINISHED!! We did it! What seemed to be impossible is now becoming a reality, only because of the incredible support and endurance of our friends and patrons at Patreon. From our hearts: thank you all so much for making this possible!
The album will be out later this year on Prophecy Productions and of course from today on a tremendous campaign will start to reach every corner of the world 🙂 we will let you know very soon.
For now we all feel empowered and relieved and somewhat tired all at once. It was a hell of a ride but absolutely worth everything!
So stay tuned and spread the word … this is happening!
