During a recent conversation with EMP, Jinjer bassist Eugene Abdukhanov shared how the war taking place in Ukraine inspired the band to write new music.

Per this interview, after a serious of different pop culture related questions, Abdukhanov is asked what is next for the band. He then says “music,” and goes on to elaborate.

“We actually have some songs written already. Because of the war [taking place in Ukraine], we had nothing else to do, and we were inspired, let’s say, by the events in a different way. When there were a lot of bombings in Kyiv and we had to hide in the shelters from the Russian bombs, Vlad wrote a lot — our drummer wrote a lot. This is what drove him, I think. As soon as the Russians withdrew from Kyiv, I wrote some songs. So we already have some songs written.”

Jinjer, and all the people of Ukraine, have gone through so much suffering; we send all our love to the people of Ukraine who are facing such extreme horror, and hope that this war ends soon.
