JORAN LEAVES DISINTEGRATE
Hello again, fellow Parasites!
With the recordings for the new album steadily progressing, we have to inform you that our drummer Joran Dijkstra has decided to part with us, be it with a heavy heart. Recent developments in his personal and professional life have made it impossible for him to continue with Disintegrate.
We want to thank Joran for the 7 years of hard work and the good times we shared. All the best in your future endeavours!
Although this is another setback for us, we assure you we will continue and this will not have any consequences for the near future. Joran can still be heard on the new album and will still perform with us at the upcoming shows.
We are now looking for a new drummer to complete the line-up once again. We have some auditions coming up, but would like to add more to this; so here’s what we require:
You should be:
- able to play fast with over 180 bpm (16th notes) double bass.
- able to play with click tracks in a live situation.
- in possession of own equipment.
Being in possession of a driver’s license is a big plus. Experience is not needed, but considered a major advantage.
If you feel you are the one for us, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message on Facebook and we will be in contact shortly.
Danny, Jos, Leo, Yordi
NEW BASSIST ANNOUNCED!
Greetings fellow parasites!
While we are hard at work recording our new album, we are tracking guitars right now, we have some news for you regarding our line-up.
A few months ago guitarist Sander told us he wanted to take a different path in life, both musically and personally, and there was no place for Disintegrate anymore. Though sad to hear this, we wish him all the best; following your heart is something we can only respect.
We immediately reinstated Leo as our guitarist, since he was already going to record some rhythm guitar for the album. And now we’d like to welcome former Sense vs. Sanity/Archonic bassist Yordi Visser to our ranks! Yordi will make his live-debut at the Emmen Metal Festival, May 15.
DARKANE SHOW CANCELLED
Due to "productional issues" the Darkane tour has been cancelled and therefor also our show at Het Bolwerk.
It is with great pride we can announce that we will be supporting Swedish legends Darkane on their show on October 3 at Het Bolwerk in Sneek. Other bands playing are Kayser from Sweden and Dutch band Edge of Serenity. Hope to see you there!
Next sunday we will be playing the 058 Benefit at Schaaf City Theater Leeuwarden.
On October 19, while we were playing a show in Vierlingsbeek, a great fire destroyed part of the centre of our hometown Leeuwarden. Houses and stores went up in flames, the birthhouse of Mata Hari was completely destoyed and very sadly a 24 year old man did not survive.
Now, on November 3, we will take part in a benefit for the victims of this tragedy.
HEADLINING BEUKFEEST 16
Disintegrate will be headlining the 16th edition of Beukfeest in Gryphus, Vierlingsbeek on the 19th of October.
OCCULTFEST COMING UP
After a much needed summer break in which we continued to write our second album and Danny became a father, we will return to the stage on September 7 at the Occultfest in Hoogeveen.
See you there!
DISINTEGRATE ANNOUNCE LINE-UP CHANGE
Over the past few months we have been rehearsing in a different line-up. Leo van Leijen and Sander Stegeman have officially switched duties in Disintegrate.
Leo has been our guitar player since 2005, but began his journey in Disintegrate as a bass player. Because we were unable to find a suitable guitar player at the time, he took on the role of guitar player. Sander Joined the band in 2009 as a stand-in bass player, but decided to join permanently later that year. Over time both Leo and Sander started to feel more and more uncomfortable in their roles.
We are all very pleased with the line-up we have had for the past four years and have become a strong goup of friends since, so we have decided to deal with this is the only logical manner. Leo and Sander will switch back to their natural instruments and make our collective even stronger!
Two new gigs coming up! First off, we will be supporting our bandmembers Joran and Sander on the release party of the debut album of their project "Sense vs. Sanity" in de Gloppe, Leeuwarden on April 13!
And secondly we will be tearing apart Hoogeveen together with Paper Doll Decay and Facing the Madness. This will be on June 15 at Het Podium!
We have two new shows coming up. On december 24 we will perform at the Frisian Metal Night in Poppodium Romein. Be sure to be there, because Sense vs. Sanity, featuring Sander and Joran, will make their first Frisian appearance on stage. Also performing are Dimaeon, featuring Danny on drums. They will do a special set to celebrate their 10th anniversary.
And we are confirmed to play at Death over Drachten at Poppodium Iduna. The event will take place on January 27 2013. Other bands are o.a. Entrapment, Death Squad and Insurrection.
Hope to see you all there!
LAST MINUTE GIG!
Tonight we will tear it up at TexMex in Spijkenisse, together with English thrashers Skreamer!
Looking forward to meeting you all!
