We’ve been busy!

We have been quite busy over the last few months. We’ve had a summer full of festivals but after that we still had some awesome shows on our schedule. We’ve uploaded a bunch of great pictures from our awesome gigs in Leiden and Rijswijk! Also: we recently celebrated fact that our lead singer managed to stay alive yet another year!

Even though it’s already a few weeks ago we remember our gig at ‘t Leids Ontzet ( also known as 3 Oktober ) like it was yesterday. Our “home” city of Leiden celebrates the anniversary of the liberation from the Spanish army that day. It’s a great excuse to drink (a lot of) beer and have a great time. And what better way than playing outside on a nice stage in front of ‘t Stadsbrouwhuis! And what a party it was! We want to thank everybody there for the amazing time we’ve had playing ( and not drowning in the canal while we’re at it). For an impression of the gig check our newest photoalbum here!

Maarten v Vliet

Two weeks after that we celebrated the birthday of our amazing frontman Maarten van Vliet. ( Hooray! ) This brings us to last weekend, where we were invited back to the marvellous indoor festival “The Gothic & Fantasy Beurs”. It was amazing to play at that stage again for you guys!

If you missed the gig, check a few of our songs below which was live streamed by the amazing crew of Celtcast! ( video in link below).
