17-08-2022 Wacken Open Air

Sooo Wacken Open Air was our final festival show this year and as said, our bass player Ruud is taking a leave of absence for the time being. But this is by no means the end for Rectal Smegma! We will be working on new material soon, and are eager to start planning festvals for 2023! So festvals, get in touch with us!

08-08-2022 A message from Luuk

A message from our bass god Luuk aka Ruud Kneiterboon... we love you, buddy. You are always a part of us:

Super tired and everything is sore, but damn that was one hell of a show at Wacken Open Air for Rectal Smegma, I think the best one we've ever done maybe! Never expected to make it this far at all, yet here we are! It's not easy to write this, but as the famous saying goes you quit while you're ahead, so I hereby have to announce the sad news that I'm quitting my bass duties for the foreseeable future. It feels like I've accomplished everything I could dream of being in a band and with all the stuff that is currently going on with Doomstar Bookings and De Kneiter I just can't find the time for this in my head or in my agenda. It feels like the right thing to do for now, but it definitely feels as a temporary hiatus, even though I have no idea for how long yet. The band will continue to play without me with a replacement for the time being. I wanna thank these 3 dudes from the bottom of my heart for everything they have given me in my 11+ years playing with them. We've laughed, cried, bled, raged, crushed and partied our way through several continents, countries and played most of the prestigious metal fests Europe has to offer for a crazy band like ours. It's given me a sense of fulfilment and a plethora of memories that I will never forget but expect to see flash before my eyes in the last moments before I die (even if sometimes we need to be together all 4 to recreate somewhat of a plausible story from our adventures hehe)! I love you guys, I truly do, it's always been an honor and a pleasure to have been standing alongside you on stage and I'll hopefully be allowed to return to that position in time. Cheers!
