Just Wär bio
Hailing from Prague, Czech Republic, the band wasn´t formedso much as it developed from previous hardcore-punk actDemarche in late 2013, after replacing the last foundingmember. The new incarnation with members of such bands as Climax and Spreading Dread decided to play less confinedstyle, carving their grooves on firm hardcore-punk bedrockand adding layers of different genres on it, such as classicMotörhead rock´n´roll, reasonable heavy-metal licks and evena bit of reggae (just to confuse the audience). They started to write new songs pretty quickly, and chose the band´s namemere a week before the first gig. The band gigged concertedlysince, supporting and sharing stage with acts such as TotalChaos, Virus, Acides, Casualties, Varukers, Mau Maus and many more. They played mostly in their homeland, but alsocruised Evrope on several forays to such countries as neighbouring Slovakia, Poland Hungaria, Austria, Slovenia, Switzerland, Italia, one ill-fated trip to UK, and mostly to Germany, where they met with quite well response.
Record-wise the band first created couple of demo songs, and shared them on their web-site, before they recorded their firstvinyl offering „The Last Goodbye“ 7“, CD version containedEP and four demo songs. The three music videos were made for one song from the EP and two stand-alone songs.
The original line-up lasted till 2017, when their vocalistdecided to leave the band due to the time restrains. He wasreplaced by singer from fellow band Jonestown. This line-up lasted about one year, and released one new stand-alone song with music video. Then, in 2018, both vocalist and drummerleft the band, and were replaced by returning original singer, and a new drummer from Spreading Dread (who had served as a stand-in drummer couple of times before), making the Just Wär pedigree half hc-punk and half trash-death-metalheritage. Ten songs (both old and new) were recorded and released as „Situation Normal Still Fucked Up“ LP on Emergency Records early in 2019.
From then on the band continued touring home and abroad, up till the point when the Covid pandemia struck the world and forced the bands worldwide to lockdown. Just Wär didn´twaste the spare time, however, and composed some newsongs, intended to be released in 2021 as split LP and a split EP.
