New track ‘Deceiver’ and ‘Forked Tongues’ from Rise and Fall’s set @ ACU, Utrecht – 11/03/11
After Carpathian’s final European show in Paris I jumped a train for Bruxelles en-route to Ghent to meet up with Rise and Fall. Bjorn put me up in his typically beautiful Belgian apartment and showed me around the city of Ghent for almost a week before we went our separate ways to meet up with girlfriends across the world…
The realest deal included R&F studio time where I was the first outsider to hear pre-production of their wild new songs before heading to Utrecht, Netherlands for their headline show with Daggers.
Without a doubt R&F headline a list, of only a very few bands, that I have sincerely appreciated both getting to know as people and musicians as well as witnessing as an incredible live band.
Below are some 35mm shots I just got back from time in the studio and around town in Ghent.
On the eve of announcing the band’s indefinite hiatus friend Matt Kovac’s emailed me these photos he discovered when developing and scanning old rolls of film.
Cool to see classic proof of us really having a rad time on tour.
These photos are from the May 2009 on the road with Have Heart which actually ended on a wild high/low in the streets of Sydney…
Shouts to Yusuke, K-Mac, Barbs and Kovacs for rolling with us.
