A message from Hans and TJRead Now
I'd like to set the record straight on a few things.
TJ and I have never quit Hans Gruber and the Die Hards. On May 5th we were blindsided with an ultimatum from Kurt, Rosey, and Chris that we either get the covid vaccine immediately, or we were out of the band. Within minutes, the other three members locked TJ and I out of our shared Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Bandcamp, CD Baby, email, and all spreadsheet/document accounts. We came to the unfortunate realization that the other three were taking all of our merchandise, content, and band money.
Even after being treated this way, TJ and I have attempted to work out an agreement so we could still release our final album we completed together in 2020. They informed us they would be re-recording over all of TJ’s vocals. At first they appeared willing to talk with me, but as soon as it became clear I was not willing to go along with cutting TJ out, my attempts to communicate have been met with complete silence for over three months.
I've kept this private up until now in the hopes that we could talk and something could be worked out that would be fair to everyone. As of now however, they are moving forward using my name and the band TJ and I created. Whatever else happens, I would love to see the album released with all the original members included. TJ and I put countless hours, significant money, and soul into creating it and we just want to give our fans and friends a chance to hear the album as it was originally intended. TJ and I are going to do whatever we can to make sure that happens. Regardless of how you feel about what we choose to put into our bodies, TJ and I deserve to be treated with respect for everything we put into this band the last seven years. Love or hate us, we are as much a part of this quirky little punk band as anyone, and TJ and I will continue to create music together.

This is such BS.

Glad I got to see Hans Gruber and the Die Hards at their insane best. I Always loved y’alls shows, It’s like kicking Freddie Mercury and Brian May out of Queen. Im not much of a fan of this new Safety punk trend. After all, We’re all gonna die.

Hans will be the easiest to replace. He's a generic white male guitar player. They're a dime a dozen. TJ will be a bit tougher since he's a very charismatic front man. This is probably the best move for the band honestly. They wouldn't be able to tour or play any of the big festivals with anti-vax members in the band, since so many are requiring vaccines now. Plus they would have gotten "cancelled" anyway once it came out that Hans is basically a white nationalist. No one will remember this or care in a few months, and TJ and Hans will fade into obscurity.

Trying to find out where you came up with the White Nationalist bs? All they are asking for is that the album gets released since they all have worked on it. Stupid fkin anonymous comments spewing lies.
9/27/2021 05:54:46 pm
Ask him how he feels about the Proud Boys, a violent white supremacists group.
9/27/2021 06:12:26 pm
I personally don’t know anything about that (am happy to talk to him about it) but doesn’t excuse them taking the last album for themselves. They are acting like they alone did all the work for the album. It’s stealing.
9/28/2021 03:03:25 pm
Calling someone a White Nationalist is a straw man to excuse their fascist actions.
9/27/2021 06:43:49 pm
Imagine being a total pussy and posting a comment on a band website anonymously. Also imagine stealing a band from the two guys who created it. Maximum soy beta cuck behaviour.
9/27/2021 07:08:14 pm
Imagine using the terms "Soy Boy" and "Cuck" unironically and outing yourself as an alt-right turd.
9/28/2021 08:52:59 am
Yo is that you Chris? Thought you had thicker skin man!
9/28/2021 09:02:11 am
hahahahaha. bro... you literally stole a band and all of its money, merch, etc. you're not fooling anyone with your anon comments on this website (the one thing you didn't manage to fucking steal). embarrassing lol. funniest part is, you probably think people are going to like this new dog shit version of the band that doesn't have the guy who wrote the songs and the killer front man. Sad.

I can’t speak for Hans but TJ has made fucked up comparisons of the vaccine to the Holocaust. You gonna defend that shit too dude

Hypothetically, if every person who got the vaccine dies in the next 5 years are you gonna come back to this post before you die to apologize to TJ?
9/28/2021 12:52:51 am
Gotta say I was hoping that something could have been worked out but at this point FIGHT IT. You have legal grounds. They didn’t want to hear y’all out well then take it back through the law. They’ll get a big slap in the face trust me. Don’t let it slip thru your hands. See if you can do a crowd funding for a lawyer. I’ll definitely support y’all and get all of my friends too.
9/28/2021 12:32:28 pm
Definitely saw TJ getting kicked when he blocked me for calling him out because he was comparing the vaccine to the Holocaust. Be better TJ, I lost respect for you because of your shitty beliefs.
9/28/2021 01:27:33 pm
Get the jab, pay the tab. The members that kicked you out will be dead soon from the vaccine. Nature always finds a way to correct itself.
9/28/2021 01:48:48 pm
How soon will I die? I got the jab a few months ago?
9/28/2021 02:18:12 pm
Yooo. I can’t wait for my body snatcher hive mind to kick in. It’s gonna be so much fun.
9/28/2021 02:25:13 pm
TJ's always been a little bitch. Hans cant play for shit and stop jerkin everyone's nutsack your last name isnt grubber. You just wanted to bogart the name for some attention.

Eh, there are two sides to every story, and everybody views themself as the good guy in their own.
9/28/2021 08:56:50 pm
Did you expect to be able to play shows and your in the future while being an anti vaxxer or???
9/29/2021 02:41:04 pm
Even if that’s the case, they could release the album since they worked hard on it together.
9/29/2021 07:15:06 pm
Yo who's TJ?
9/29/2021 10:46:46 pm
Was he the short one?
10/9/2021 09:21:18 am
Not getting vaccinated is a selfish thing to do. No sympathy.
10/12/2021 12:18:37 pm
Here is more of a full picture of this situation.
10/12/2021 09:37:24 pm
this is hilarious
The vaccine doesn't work
10/14/2021 10:23:20 pm
Didn't the three remaining retards get COVID right after they kicked the antivaxxers out? So the only people that were in the band that haven't had covid were the unvaccinated members? Hahaha imagine how stupid they must feel. They destroyed their band for a meme vaccine. What idiots.
10/15/2021 07:11:42 pm
If that’s what you think, your post takes the idiot cake.

The protected need to be protected from the unprotected by forcing the unprotected to use the protection that didn't protect the protected.

Correction - not the first time Hans has expressed support for the POS known as Trunp.

this comment is funny because antivaxxers are extremely stupid.
10/16/2021 03:56:48 pm
What a set of selfish pricks.
The fans don't need protection
10/25/2021 01:03:53 pm
The fans don't need protection.

Shut the fuck up TJ
10/19/2021 08:38:53 pm
Hans has bad politics towards women period.
10/25/2021 11:51:03 am
Please elaborate. Your statement is baseless and ridiculous.

dayum hans and tj were the cuties, the goods sounds, and the charm.
The same people who played bull McCabe‘s and then ended up later talking shit on a certain someone for calling a local girl cut. What’s hilarious about it is all the people who jump that guys but ended up having a whole bunch of crap happened to them later good riddance to all of you get fucked. That whole scene in Austin that plays kick butt coffee is nothing more than a bunch of shit talking assholes. You go around talking shit and then you want to get involved with punk rock saves lives. After you ruined several lives out there who were still running around damage from you guys. This band right here when the former singer was in it, they used to go around talking smack about everybody and I’m not kidding. It was so bad to wear I know somebody who was going to end up putting a bullet in the singers head and April from sniper. All of you people around I need to shut your fucking mouth or you’re gonna end up with somebody come and put a bullet in your fucking heads. I’m dead serious watch your fucking mouth all of you

Wow. Look at that. The right wing garbage espoused by Hans and TJ leads to terrorism and threats of violence. Who could have seen that coming?
