Heavily influenced by bands like Alice in Chains and Queens of the Stone Age, their sound stands out by their ultra low and heavy guitar sound, and their distinctive vocal style, which often includes the harmonized vocals between Krijgsman and Van der Steen.
On stage 22AD takes you on an adventurous, hypnotizing and surrealistic trip with their groove, their rhythm and melancholic singing.
At the beginning of 2019 the first of two singles "Lead the Way" was released including an awesome video clip. Their second single What Takes Care of You is just released and also available on all major platforms.
Right now they are working on a new EP to be release at the the beginning of 2020.
