Back in 1996: Frederick (voc, git) meets his all-time faves AC/DC and decides to start a band with his brother Matthias (drums). Together with Hendrik (bass) The Creetins play honest and straight-to-the-point punkrock with catchy melodies and harmonies that get stuck in your ears!
You can easily realize that these three young guys from Kiel/Germany have been taught by the great masters of the punkrock highschool like the Ramones, Misfits and even Face to Face. They have also been influenced by the early 80´s HC/Punk scene with bands like the Faction or Black Flag. These roots are responsible for their bonecrushing mixture of powerful and melodic Punkrock!
During the last eight years the Creetins played more than 200 shows – they made a lot of friends in Europe with their breathtaking live shows!
In 2001 the bastards released their debut album “Have you ever hit the ground…” on german punkrock label Vitaminepillen Records – it became a success in the punkrock scene. Shortly after that the EP “It´s all riot!” followed in order to prepare the punk kids for the first european tour of the Creetins in 2002. Meanwhile Punkrock label Nitroala Records released the debut “Have you ever hit the ground…” in Brazil in summer 2002!
Their second full-length release “4 seconds to get over it” is available since March 2003 and was promoted on their second european tour together with Voice of a Generation from Sweden. Vitaminepillen and Diapazam Records (Sweden) released a special Creetins/Voice of a Generation split 7” for this tour.
In spring 2004 The Creetins hit the road again – this time a european tour with one of the coolest Surfpunk bands around, the Travoltas from the Netherlands. Right now The Creetins are looking forward to record their next album which is going to be out in early 2005!
So, what more could a young punk band want? This is just the beginning... cause there´s no stoppin' the Creetins from rockin'!
