In 2007 they decided that a change had to be made, so they seized the opportunity to go in a different direction. Five of the orginal eight members now remain. The new sound that dissociates from the Ska-Punk that characterized The Donkeyshots in the first five years and become much harder and experimental. Different influences from Balkan/Gipsy, Polka, Latin, Rock and (Nu-)Metal were added to the mix and for the last two years, The Donkeyshots have worked on new songs, reinventing themselves after eight-years of self-discovery. Their sound is now entering it‘s next chapter, with the release of their new album „Chasing Windmills“ (Released on 30.10.2009 Finest Noise / Fragemento) one that explores the concepts of compromised ethics, change and nostalgia.
With so many bands tailoring their sound to fit mainstream genres, The Donkeyshots‘ multifaceted style is a refreshing and unique mix that has left German reviewers struggling to pigeonhole their music. Compared to a wide range of artists including System of a Down and Gogol Bordello, the innovative music of ‚Chasing Windmills‘ defies classification and challenges the necessity of fitting into one specific genre...so stop reading and start listening.
