♦ February 14th, 2016 – New member ♦

For this last year, Miss Rita Karpati has been accompanying us on the bass. She’s been a tremendous asset to the band, but unfortunately for us she has decided to focus on her own project. So with her leaving, we’d like to put out a BIG thank you to her for all the support on making us sound good. With that said we would also like to announce that the new bass player is nobody less than mister Tom Huizing (bassplayer in de Nachtdienst)!! We welcome him to the band, as we’re getting ready to practice some new material. Oh and lot’s of fresh graphic material is on it’s way, check back for updates:)

♦ January 4th, 2016 – A great year! ♦

First of all, happy new year’s to all of you, 2016 has been a blast! Got to play on some new stages in L.A. as well as Paris, and met some great artists along the way. Gildor won the first prize in both de Stem van Notelle, and Tilt Backroads singer-songwriter festival. We would like to thank everybody who has believed in us en supported us. Without you guys it’d be a lot less interesting;)
Furthermore I would like to announce that we’re going to shoot the video for ‘When the Light Came in’ next week, the 13th. In the meantime we put together a little 2016 live/studio compilation for you guys to enjoy on the media page.

Thanks, cheers!

It’s been a while! We’ve been quite busy. Writing a LOT, redefining our sound and making plans for 2017. The master for ‘When the Light came in’ just came through. We’ve decided to release this single with a video, so you’re gonna have to patient a little more.. It’s been a great year, starting this band and getting some momentum going. Hoping for a lot of music this year to come!!

♦ July 22nd, 2016 – New recordings ♦
