Things have been a bit quiet at the Dowzer camp, but nothing to worry about.
As everyone is busy with jobs, family and other bands* we took a short pause on playing shows but started working on new music. We are all still very happy, proud and excited with the response we receive on ‘So Much For Silver Linings‘ and we are really trying to push the bar on creating songs that raise the level. Already looking forward to let you hear what we’re up to, but all in time…
After the summer we’ll pick up on live shows, so see you then!
* Deny also plays in Camp High Gain now, check ‘m out. New record in the works!
* Remy joined St. Plaster for the live shows, their record is in the run for best record of 2019 for sure!
So 2018 comes to an end and it has been an amazing year for us. In our previous post we talked about the first half, the second half was also gooood. Had a great time playing support for our heroes from our youth Frenzal Rhomb together with buds F.O.D., played ‘Patatland’ with the always charming Friet uh.. Sweet Empire, had substitutes Jasper and Bram for two shows, played the Factory Festival and enjoyed Slotterfest a bit too much 😛 Did a great UK weekender including human pyramids and rowboats and had a very enjoying midweek show in Hove, Belgium with Altitude, Wasei Hey! Go! and the All Star Wedding Band.
Here’s a video of ‘Broken Record’ at the show in Hove, shot by Max!
And what does 2019 bring for Dowzer?
Off course a show here and there, but… in February/March our drumbeast Remy is expecting a little girl! So around that time we will focus on new tunes (just like we are now at the moment). We hope to see you all in spring/summer or at the just announced show FOW Fest Winter Edition!
Have an awesome holiday season, stuff your face and drink like there’s no tomorrow.. see you in 2019!
Hidyho diehard Dowzer fanatics and people who are just checking out the page!
2018 has past the 50% mark and summer holidays are on the way. A good moment to look back on what we’ve done so far this year.
First show of the year was in Belgium with our buddies Barney’s Ego. Always a pleasure sharing the stage with good people and off course.. punkshows in Belgium ❤
Please help us get more shows in Belgium!
Up next were some local shows, a new experience of being the ‘in between interviews band’ in Nijmegen and Uden for writers Leon Verdonschot and Henk Verstraten (thank you Marjolein for the opportunity!), worth to mention the Punksteren show in Eindhoven which was one of the funnest shows we played (Ink Bomb‘s Quirijn should take some diving lessons next time haha) and we had two very cool supportslot shows with Counterpunch and Red City Radio!
Next to playing shows we’ve spoken to lots of old but also lots of new friends that picked up So Much For Silver Linings, thank you all for the kind words! It means the world to us. Pick up an LP, CD or a tape at the next show or order it online, or off course get your Dowzer fix the digital way on bandcamp, spotify, itunes, .. wherever!
Right now we’ll take a short summerbreak, slowly starting writing new songs and getting ready for our upcoming shows, (we’re playing with Frenzal Rhomb in October!! 16 year old Deny is already stoked/siked/stiked/soaked!). See you very soon!
