First of course Anneke.. She is healthy and fine and will deliver her first child the beginning of february 2005. Everything looks good, and we are all thrilled, of course! We will keep you informed.

René, Frank and Hans build a little studio in the back of the Psychonaut office, and are currently writing new songs. Originally we should start this process of arranging in march 2005, but we had too many ideas, thus we put them on our harddisk before we go on holiday in february.

Marjolein is currently extremely busy with studying, she will join the band rehearsals next week.

Well, we have some pieces of music which work. These pieces are very colourfull.. It is hard to say something about it, things can and will change this year and at the studio recordings, but the guitars are more prominent..
It differs from the Souvenirs material. Guess you already know we love to tear ourself apart, and build up, stone by stone, the new songs. The plan is to record our new album (working title: ‘Your Troubles Are Over‘ ) with Attie Bauw (who worked with us during the ‘How to measure a planet?’ album) around autumn 2005. Release date probably early 2006.

Furthermore, we are currently thinking about recording a DVD this spring.
More info if we have some. Please note we will not tour in 2005, we will only play some gigs for DVD recordings.. We will see. Enough plans..

Cheers!

Brought to you by: Hans.
