(2017 – now)

Meaning Bandname: The absence of youthful carefreeness. Having been robbed of a childhood

Bio: Youth Deprivation was formed to attempt and create a fresh and contemporary sound to the Groningen punk scene, in contrast to the more crusty background of most members. In January 2017 they had their first practice, shortly after which drummer Gijs left the project because of time deprivation.

In June Michel Jonker joined the band and the band continued practicing throughout the summer (writing about half of the material to be featured on the demo). In late September Michel left, also due to time constraints, and the band was again facing drummer deprivation.

In February of 2018 Tim joined the band and the line-up remained stable. YD played their first gig on the 25th of June, together with Canadian bands GAZM and CELL at the Bambara squat in Groningen. In January 2019 they recorded the I’m Fine demo at Booij Recordings in Franeker, which was digitally released on the 28th. In March they self-released the demo on cassette, limited to 100 copies. In November 2019 the band returns to the studio in Franeker to record for a 12″. During the Covid-19 pandemic they record again in 2021 and get a new guitarplayer as well.

Haico Menger of Frontsector replaces Eva on the 2022 tour and Tim Prins of Glitch does some concerts. Reynaert moves to Estonia for half a year in 2022, and returns in 2023.
