Statement from Willem / VANDERBUYST, January 2014:
In a few days we will hit the road again. We will visit 13 countries, and we will play 30 shows in 31 days. We are happy we will address some places we haven’t been for a while, like the south of Germany - we realize some of our fans had to wait for some time now to see us again. So 30 shows - 31 days, got to be a big adventure, and it will be. A tour with Enforcer, Skull Fist, Gengis Khan and Vanderbuyst obviously is a killer package. Our mission is to add some hard rock flavors in this perfect heavy metal recipe.
For this tour we decided to record a single with two brand new tracks. On ‘Little Sister’ we are joined by a good friend of ours: Farida Lemouchi (former The Devil’s Blood). This cooperation we had in mind for a very long time and this song seemed to be the perfect opportunity. It was a great surprise to hear how Farida and Jochem’s voices matched. On the other side of the 7 inch you will find ‘Shakira’. On this track guest Marcel Van De Vondervoort (Astrosoniq) added some Arabic percussion. The single is limited to 500 pieces only and released by partner in crime Ván Records. You can pre-order the single at the label’s website or hope to get yourself a copy at one of the shows.
We’re looking forward to present to you those new songs and more on stage.
We hope to see you on the road!
