The Ills started back in 2008 as more of a bedroom project in a tiny flat in Bratislava, a place full of different kind of instruments which the band members first picked up in what had to be just a little break in a gaming session on playstation, The Ills soon became a regular band.mThey are definitely most characterized by their live performances where their musical skills, intense atmosphere combined with intimate parts meet with punk attitude and almost hardcore drive.
Over the years they have played in Iceland, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Hungary, Poland, Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Czech Republic. They toured with Japanese band Tricot in March 2016 and have also shared stages with the likes of And So I Watch You From Afar, God Is An Astronaut, Russian Circles, Rosetta and many others before. The Ills have so far released four albums. After the debut album To Wish Impossible Things (2010) and critically acclaimed Splendor (2012) and Zoya (2014), they released their fourth and so far best received album Ornamental or Mental in 2016
