X Raiders are five young men from the rural hinterlands of the Netherlands breathing new life into rock-’n’-roll. Leave your preconceptions and genre definitions at the door and submit yourself to the energy blasting from the stage. X Raiders is your outlet after a week of hard work. Strap yourself in and take it to the max! Headbanging? Check! Crowdsurfing? Check! Moshpits? Check! X Raiders released their aggressively personal second album Weltschmerz ’89 on 31/01/2020. Combining a multitude of influences from Turbonegro and Iron Maiden to early-Soilwork and Dillinger Escape Plan, Weltschmerz ’89 is an in-your-face collection of pure rock-‘n’-roll: aggressive and dark, yet more genuine and addictive than ever. Looking for the quick fix to your Weltschmerz? Fuck those tears, grab your leather jacket, and walk your boots straight through that door.

Weltschmerz ’89 was recorded live at Wisseloord Studios and produced by Grammy-nominated Attie Bauw (Judas Priest/De Staat) who claims, “they are the loudest band I ever recorded, and believe me, I’ve recorded many.” Pics by Tijs van Leur
