(2018 – 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 (Fake-O’s) left the project because of time deprivation.
In June Michel (Entrapment) 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.
