Thegathering Start Own Record Label
“When we have closed the book that is called Century Media,” said singer Anneke van Giersbergen, “Psychonaut Records will be an important label for the us in the upcoming future.”
Just in case you were wondering what the band are up to, Thegathering have been busy writing new songs which they will air to fans in Holland on their upcoming Dutch club tour.
“We have a hard disk full of inspiration,” Anneke continues. “We are happy to say that we will be playing five or six of the new songs our upcoming club tour which starts in about two weeks. Of course we hope all Dutch Gathering followers will visit some of the upcoming gigs because it’s always an exciting moment to play new tracks in front of an audience!
“It’s difficult to describe our new material. Until now, the songs are very dark and gloomy. Sometimes moody and atmospheric, but way more groovier! Sometimes quite heavy again, but of course it will be something new and improved compared to the previous record. We try to take the best elements from the past, and combine this with the present, without forgetting the future.”
The band hope to release their new as yet untitled album by the middle of next year.
