"The Red Paintings" and Treibsand in Munster
This sunday, 25th of November, will take the European Tour of "The Red Paintings" from Australia to Munster. They present an impressive, orchestral art-rock seldomly heard. We and the band "Indigo" are honoured to jump in as support on short notice.
Doors open at 7.30 pm at Lorenz Sud Café (Am Berg Fidel 53, 48153 Münster), right next to the Preußenstadion. Tickets are 7 EUR. We are very looking forward to playing and seeing this amazing band.
Against the demolition of the Schützenhofbunker in Münster
Just like every other band, Treibsand needs a place to prepare for concerts. Ours is currently endangered and not only for us, but also thirty other bands from Munster. Our rehearsal room in the old "Schützenhofbunker" is planned to be sold by the April 1st 2012. The proprietor, an institution of the Federal Republic of Germany, as well as representatives of the city council wish for it to be demolished and replaced by residential buildings.
This prospect is endangering the very existence of the bands working there. Without suitable place to rehearse no songs can be written, no sets can be practised and no music can be made. Alternatives in the local area are at best insufficient if not inexistant.
A constantly growing group of tenants of the bunker, amongst them us, is exerting pressure on the issue. You can assist us if you sign tne online-petition for the preservation of the Schützenhofbunker in Munster, that you can find here: http://tinyurl.com/bunker-petition.
Thank you. We'll keep you posted.
Recording new stuff
Many people have asked us, whether there are recordings of the three new songs that we presented last time we played live. Just today we spent a few hours to ban Simon's guitar play on tape for a very special project. Since we want it to be real good and we are trying out some new tricks, we don't want to rush things - as soon as there are audible results you will find out more here!
