7" pre-order / new shirts / upcoming shows

Last night, Willem played his last show with us. We thank him for the years of his life he has given us and that he will never get back. Moloch and Thou were amazing and managed to make both the ground and the ceiling shake. Check them out on one of the few shows left on this tour.


Unfortunately, our 7" has been delayed at the pressing plant. We already made some special covers for Willem's last show, so we turned that into a pre-order and have a few left. If you are interested in a copy, drop us a line at ilovestarve@gmail.com . Postage rates have been rising like crazy so it is €6 ppd Netherlands / €7.50 ppd Europe / $14 ppd worldwide. If you order this, we will e-mail you a download code for both songs on the record.


We have new shirts, based on the cover artwork of our upcoming 7", and expressing our love for 70s music, movies and Pam Grier. They are €12 ppd Netherlands / €14 ppd Europe / $23 ppd worldwide.


Check out the showlist to the right, we have five upcoming shows. However, we are always looking for more shows. In particular, we are looking for someone who can help out with two shows in Germany and/or Poland on the 8th and 9th of September. We are aiming for somewhere in the middle of Germany on the 8th, and somewhere either in the south of Germany or not too far into Poland for the 9th. Hit us up if you can help out.

In five more days we will be attempting to level Utrecht with some sonic excess in distorted form.

We will be selling some new shirts, and hopefully our 'Black Sludge, White Sludge' 7" (which is at the pressing plant as I type this). More importantly though, this will be Willem's last show with Starve. Come say goodbye to an icon.

Releases and band members


Our new 7” Black Sludge, White Sludge will be released on Badger records very soon. Hopefully the record will be on time for our show on the 27th of June at DBs, Utrecht with THOU and MOLOCH. This 7” will contain two songs.

After that, we will hit the studio at the end of the summer for a split 12” with TERZIJ DE HORDE, which will also be released by Badger Records.

We also recorded a song for the soundtrack of the Dutch zombie movie Il Campeggio dei Morti Viventi, which should see the light of day sometime in 2012. Look for us in a special cameo.


Our drummer Luke recently decided to dedicate all of his time to studying American religious fanaticism, which left us without a beat. Luckily we quickly found a replacement in Walter (known for his drums in Valser, and his acting in critically acclaimed movies like Fargo and The Big Lebowski).

Founder of the band and former male model Willem has decided to leave STARVE. We think he should start a new band, so hit him up if you are serious about that and live near Horst aan de Styx. His last show with us will be on the 27th of June.
After that, STARVE will continue as a four piece, but we will be keeping our eyes and ears open for a potential new guitarist. There are some demands that have to be met to be able to fill that position, and since we are looking for someone from the Netherlands the next part will be in Dutch.

Kortom: voorlopig gaat Starve verder als viermans formatie, maar we stellen ons open voor de toevoeging van een nieuwe gitarist. Hieraan is wel een aantal eisen verbonden:

- Woonachtig zijn in de randstad (onze oefenruimte is in Amsterdam)
- In het bezit zijn van degelijke eigen gear
- Bereid en gemotiveerd zijn om twee keer per week te oefenen
- Bij voorkeur in het bezit zijn van een rijbewijs en eigen vervoer
- Talent en motivatie hebben om leads te spelen

Wat wij kunnen bieden:

- Regelmatig optreden
- Opnames (twee releases in de pijpleiding)
- Tours

Onze muziek valt te beluisteren op:


Mocht je aan deze eisen voldoen en interesse hebben, stuur dan een mail naar ilovestarve@gmail.com

This monday: THOU / MOLOCH / STARVE

I first saw Moloch live in 2008 in Nottingham and was almost blown through the windows of the art gallery that they (and we) were playing at. It should be interesting to see them play a damp, dark cellar in Leiden.

Thou must be one of the most prolific sludge/doom bands around right now, releasing record after record and doing tour after tour. Very stoked to be playing with them twice.

This same line-up will be playing in Utrecht on the 27th of June, which will hopefully be the release show of our new 7".

Decided to start a blog because it is easier to update with complete information than six million social networking sites. Our new 7" will hopefully be coming out at the end of this month.

Check out our upcoming shows to the right, and below that our music.
