It all started as many bands do: Alexey Shabanov and Andrey Lyubchenko, two schoolmates with some previous band experience, decided to play music together. In the summer of 2012, Andrey Mironov, a drummer, was invited to participate in a rehearsal. His inclusion brought Chekhov to life.

That was the moment when it became clear that the band could only exist in the form of an immutable trio. Through the intimidating precision of selective randomness, the true meaning of things becomes clear, and this leads the way to music. These are the only moments during which Chekhov grows into a living, collective person with all immanent contradictions and tensions, giving name to the band's eternal state: «on a brink of death». Winter 2013 yielded the releases «14» and «15», both of which were recorded live.

Every performance is the last performance.
