About De Staat
De Staat is a Dutch alternative rock band that is an explosive mix of different genres. Diversity has been part of the band's DNA since its inception. Through their own brand of rock, more and more people have noticed them over the last few years, which has led them to, among other things, support artists such as The Rolling Stones in Amsterdam and Muse across Europe on their 2016 Drones tour. De Staat was formed as a one-man project by vocalist Terre Florim. The band's debut album, entitled Wait For Evolution, was released in 2009. The band included guitarist Vedran Mircetic, bassist Jop van Summeren, multi-instrumentalist Rocco Hueting and drummer Tim van Delft. De Staat have created their own brand of rock - citing influences from everyone from Talking Heads, Rihanna and Nine Inch Nails to Radiohead, Michael Jackson, Run-DMC and Soulwax.
