Below is the video for “Welcome 2 Nothing”.

Crushing State consists of Chris Ruiz (voice, machines, guitars), Mathias Thürk (keyboards, machines), André Feller (guitars) and Vincent Viebig (drums). The band, led by Chris Ruiz, debuted with “Surveillance” and for “Welcome 2 Nothing”, they collaborated for the first time with Jens Halbauer (known from Solar Fake and Fliehende Stürme) who contributed some drum parts.

The band here also collaborated with JS Clayden from the English industrial pioneers Pitchshifter. Clayden produced a remix of “Welcome 2 Nothing“.

Chris Ruiz, formerly of the synthpop band And One, initially started Crushing State as a solo project.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
