Via Facebook ontvingen we bericht dat Survival terug is van weggeweest. De groep van de in Rotterdam woonachtige Jack Langevelt laat weten dat Survival opnieuw is opgericht. Als basgitarist is Frans Muys van de Moer aangetrokken. Muys van de Moer heeft samengewerkt met Rick van der Linden en maakte van 1989 tot 1993 deel uit van Ekseption. De gitaar wordt nog steeds ter hand genomen door de jonge Engelsman David Dexter. Thans lopen audities voor drummer en vocalist.
Als manager van de groep fungeert Inez van der Linden, weduwe van Rick van der Linden. Verder werkt Survival aan een nieuwe video en staat een nieuw album op het
programma nadat de band compleet is.
In 2008 werd het album "Crusader" uitgebracht dat in het buitenland veel aandacht heeft ontvangen. Verder staat het nooit officieel uitgebrachte "Con Brio" op het CV van de groep. Wil je meer lezen over Survival en Jack Langevelt, bezoek dan zijn vernieuwde website: http://survival2.webs.com/
ARTIST OF THE MONTH AUGUST: EVE'S FALL
In July we had a short summer break from our monthly “Artist of the Month” series, but in August we are happy to continue with putting another band in the spotlight: the metal band Eve's Fall (NL). The band, fronted by female singer Liesbeth Cordia, was founded in the spring of 2012. Even though they only exist for just over a year, they already released an album titled “From Here On”, with guest performances by guitar player Ad Sluijter (ex-Epica, Hangover Hero). The album was accompanied by the single and music video for “Enough!” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAc4WdReOTI). The songs on the album are catchy, with a mix of powerful, modern metal and strong influences from pop music. This way, they strongly try to avoid cliches often associated with female-fronted metal music. Thanks to their excellent live performance they already won the final of the Band Boost 2013 and were asked to perform on 3fm, the national music radio station. Just like the album title, the band will continue to promote their music and conquer the stages “from here on”. “Eve's Fall has the qualities to become the new Dutch pride for metal music”, according to 3voor12. We think so too! Check their profile: http://www.labtones.com/artist/evesfall
News!! It's been a while!
It's been a long time since I posted so sorry about that. I originally signed up here as Rob Hillfield, when I was in a band called The Hillfields, but have had a bit of a break since that band ended.
Now I'm back - my new band is called "Rapid Results College". I've put two demos up for a sneaky peak at where we are heading musically.
Street video - How/Read the Signs
Here´s a video recorded on the streets of Madrid as part of Calle Sonora an audiovisual project featuring musicians playing in a street or intimate setting. It features two of my songs, How and Read the Signs, both recorded live. It captures both the street and intimate environments. They did a fantastic job so please check it out, it´s well worth watching!
"Sirens" is now available as a LIMITED EDITION 7" Split Vinyl
Our new single "Sirens" is now available as a LIMITED EDITION 7" Split Vinyl which also includes the single "Transient Days" of our good friends from Norway "Soup"
and can be bought via our Bandcamp account.
Not three but SEVEN sets at THISSFest!
I wrote last time I am playing three sets at THISSFest but a lot has changed since then and now I'm playing... seven!!
On Thursday 27th, I will perform at the Festival Kick-Off event at SuperMarkt; then on Friday I will play two sets, one on Saturday and three on Sunday! Every set in a different venue. And every set will be a bit different.
I hope some of you reading this can come! It is going to be a beautiful festival, there are going to be many more singers-songwriters from many countries (I think 30 different countries).
If you are planning to come, please order your ticket online because it's cheaper! You will find the info on the festival website: http://thissfest.org/
And one more thing! In between the festival gigs, I will also play a longer show at Café de Tregter in Leiden, together with the wonderful band Chabliz www.chabliz.com that I have been a fan of for a few years now, and recently we have started playing some gigs together. We will play two separate sets of course. Here is the link to the Facebook event invitation: http://www.facebook.com/events/453200851394984/
I hope I will see some of you one of these shows! So soon!
