Listen to the first single »Soft Healers« below!
Recorded and mixed by Sebastiaan van Bijlevelt at Galloway Recording Studio, mastered by Pieter Kloos. Cover art by Louise te Poele / Superpulp.
Says the band: “Come dance in limbo with »Soft Healers«, the first song by Iron Jinn is out in the open! Today is a mighty good day. We’re gonna massage your primal brain with »Soft Healers«, the first musical piece of our upcoming debut album. At the same time we announce our collaboration with the great people at Stickman Records.
The upcoming months we’ll serve you pieces of our frantic debut double LP. The album follows the logic of a dream; none. The songs are the result of a chaotic accumulation of modern world impressions, information and conversations that are forcefully pushed through a human funnel: the minds of Iron Jinn. Do join us on this grand leap. Rise and bloom!”

Stickman Records, label home for high class bands such as Elder, Motorpsycho, King Buffalo, Weedpecker and many more, is proud to announce a new signing: Iron Jinn from Amsterdam. Iron Jinn are Oeds Beydals (The Devil’s Blood, Death Alley), Wout Kemkens (Shaking Godspeed, De Niemanders), Bob Hogenelst (Birth Of Joy) and Gerben Bielderman (Pauw). Their self-titled debut is a frantic album that follows the logic of a dream: none. The nine songs are the result of a chaotic accumulation of modern world impressions, information and conversations that are forcefully pushed through a human funnel: the minds of Oeds and Wout.
Iron Jinn sounds downright exciting. The voices of Wout and Oeds reverberate passionately over mesmerizing grooves and pure melodies and harmonies. A rare combination in contemporary (rock) music. Guitarists/songwriters Oeds and Wout crossed paths for several years whilst playing in Death Alley and Shaking Godspeed. Finding common ground in challenging the status quo in heavy rock music, their first real get-together birthed a festival: the all-nighter Last Night On Earth. For their second collaboration they took to the Roadburn 2018 stage and performed new original material as Iron Jinn (then spelled ‘Iron Chin’). After their Roadburn live debut they kept on writing, teamed up with longtime friend and powerhouse drummer Bob and commenced the recordings for this debut album in the spring of 2021. After that Gerben was added to the band’s line-up.
»Soft Healers« is the new single from the album, and it’s now streaming HERE!
Wout Kemkens explains: “When we wrote »Soft Healers«, the nasty throbbing sensation of the music drove me towards the old Dutch saying, ‘soft healers cause stinking wounds’. The song also deals literally with the physical side of thoughts and actions: matter over mind, a reversal of the popular modern world catchphrase. Humans can be great tricksters, but it’s hard to outsmart some realities, I guess. You cannot always place will above matter, something we love to do.”
