The story of De Staat proves that humble beginnings can lead to great things. It all started as a one man project by the Dutch singer, musician and composer Torre Florim. Even before it’s debut album “Wait For Evolution” came out, De Staat was already a full grown band. Since then – early 2009 – the band established itself as the most exciting new rock band that Holland had to offer in a very long time. Their concerts got unanimous rave reviews. “Wait For Evolution” was embraced by fans, journalists and colleagues alike as one of the best albums of 2009. It won the prestigious 3VOOR12 AWARD 2009 for best album in the Netherlands, and was voted Best Album of 2009 in Live XS Magazine.

Holland already fell for the charm of this young outfit, big time. Now it’s time for the next step: the rest of the world. Cool Green Recordings (Mascot Records sub label) has given Wait For Evolution its well deserved international release. The band has played Glastonbury festival in 2010, NXNE in Toronto and is touring Europe and the USA.
