This three-headed rocktrio was formed by Pim Lohmeijer (guitar), Vincent Kil (drums and vocals) and Laurens Kil (bass and vocals). After its foundation in 2004, the band had been plagued by guitarists joining and leaving the band, by recording problems and by disease. The recording and release of their first self-recorded album in 2006, More Than A Name, concluded this chaotic period. This album received many positive reviews, and eventually the song ‘Pendant’ found its way into the Indie Advice List of the Dutch chart ‘Free40’. This unexpected but welcome success encouraged the band to plan recording sessions during the autumn/winter of 2006; their second self-recorded album De Profundis was released in early 2007.
More positive reviews followed and in April of 2007 Devolution was even elected “Grolsch Talent of the month”. The band spent the remainder of the year performing regularly on local festivals and made a few (acoustic) radio appearances on LocalFM (Etten-Leur). An acoustic download-only single featuring “Instead” and “Orpheus” was released in May 2009. However, due to the name Devolution being claimed already the band’s name was changed to Simius.
