It's been awfully quiet on here for way too long. We think an apology is due here! Thankfully we've been very busy in the meantime: awesome shows with Stream of Passion, My Propane, Kingfisher Sky, The Saturnine, Ancient Bards and Sin7sins... We can look back at a year full of great shows with some amazing bands!
Behind the scenes, a lot has been going on as well. We've been very busy writing new songs! We've spent whole evenings and days locked up in our rehearsal room, at Bart's place, and even an entire weekend at Liesbeth's place!
It feels great to be working creatively on something entirely new, but after FIVE (!!!) months all of us are really starting to miss being on stage and rocking out with you guys so it's time for a break. Therefore we're very pleased to finally be able to announce some upcoming dates!
On Thursday May 7th we'll be playing at Gebr de Nobel in Leiden with Mudguard and The Saturnine, who will be playing their farewell gig that night. On Friday May 22nd we'll be playing with Kingfisher Sky and Autumn at the P3 in Purmerend. And on June 12th we'll be playing at a Female Fronted Rocknight with Left Alive (first ever tryout gig) and Coral Springs at the HPC in The Hague!
Want to get in for free on May 7th?
The fine gentlemen of Mudguard are giving away four tickets on their Facebook-page! Check their page and follow the four easy steps (in Dutch). They'll announce the winners on their page on May 1st!

Our (brief) summer break is over again, everyone has returned home from their holidays, and almost immediately it's back down to business again: in the past couple of weeks we've played a gig at least every week! It's been an awesome month for us with some great new experiences, and we've enjoyed it to the fullest!
First of all we played our very first gig outside of the Netherlands: on August 23rd we headed off to de Ginsert in Genk, Belgium, and it's been loads of fun.
One week later we competed in the finals of the Peter Tetteroo Bokaal (cup) on the Westerpop festival in our hometown Delft, on Friday August 29th, in front of at least 4000 people! Andere Koek! won, but we didn't really mind: we were having a blast! There was a small moshpit in the front rows, and we even saw a (miniature) wall of death! \m/
Westerpop faces tough times with a lot of uncertainty due to redevelopment of the site where the festival has been held for most of the past 25 years. So it was an even greater honour for us to have been a part of this incredible 25th edition, the last Westerpop at this awesome site!

A week later, we played in a far more intimate setting: in the cozy (and crowded) Paardcafé in The Hague, for Club 3voor12 The Hague, a regularly held showcase for local talents.
This wasn't all: expect a report and some great pics soon of our two support shows for Stream of Passion and My Propane at P60 and De Pul on September 12th and 13th. We're all still recovering from an incredible weekend!

We've got a lot of cool new stuff to share! In our previous update we already mentioned the Female Fronted Rock Night. We're proud to confirm we're among the 8 bands that have been selected to be part of the tour!
We're far from tired of band contests too... Band Boost was a really cool trip last year, and we'd love more of that sort of stuff!
In the Global Battle of the Bands, we managed to make it to the national finals. These took place on June 21st on an outdoor stage at the Grote Markt in Den Haag. The competition was fierce, and unfortunately we didn't win. Orange Skyline will be representing the Netherlands in the worldwide finals, and got to play the Jupiler Stage at Parkpop. Thin Pillow were awarded best local band and got to play the The Hague stage at Parkpop. Congratulations to both!
But that's not all. As you may have read on Facebook, we took part in the preliminaries for the Peter Tetteroo Bokaal on June 18th, and we won! This means that on August 29th, we'll be taking on Vortex University and Andere Koek at Westerpop in Delft! The stakes? This year's winner will open the festival next year on the main stage!
And that's still not everything: we have applied for a spot in the Grote Prijs van Nederland, the mother of all Dutch band competitions, and we really, really, REALLY want to be selected! Now, we could just lean back and wait and hope the jury will pick us as one of 24 contestants out of over 200 submissions... but we can also guide the hands of fate a little bit! There is a poll for the audience award, and the jury will pick two bands from the top 10 and award them with a wildcard that launches them straight to the quarter finals. Needless to say, we REALLY want to be one of them! With help of our awesome Facebook-friends we are now in the top 10 (at number 9 right now), and we'd like to keep it that way. So here's a little heads-up if you haven't done so already:
Vote for Eve's Fall!
Furthermore we're happy to announce some cool new gigs, starting with Roadgrill on June 19th. That means beer, BBQ and metal! PSYCHED!!! Afterwards we'll be off for a couple of weeks while some of us are taking a little vacation, but we'll be back again in August to rock your socks off! Until then we wish you great summer holidays and look forward to seeing you guys again at one of our gigs!
