DOWLING POOLE UK shows in Sep

Our only three shows of 2017 are getting nearer….

dps

Well there’s no point in avoiding it, we’ve been quiet for a couple of months. Jon and Willie have been either recording, or across the world with our favourite man of medicine, Dr Hook, (his name is Dennis Locorriere and ye shall praise him) and Givvi has been back in her threadbare, mildew infested, concrete bedsit, crying her eyes out and wondering quite where it all went so wrong….

So there’s a new acoustic video for you to gasp at, up on Facebook….

And here are the ticket links to our only three shows of 2017. Cheaper if you get them in advance…..

September 7th – Worcester, The Marrs Bar (ticket link here)
September 8th – Bedford, Esquires@Holy Moly’s (ticket link here)
September 9th – London, The Borderline (ticket link here)

Get them now to avoid any disappointment….mostly ours of course.
Our happiness is balanced precariously in your hands.
And we’ll pray to all that is not in the least bit holy, just to see you there

Willie, Jon and Givvi

Von Hertzen Brothers announce UK tour & new album titled “VII – War is Over”

Finland’s most acclaimed progressive rock group Von Hertzen Brothers are excited to announce that they will be releasing a new album titled “VII – War is Over” this coming autumn and will be supporting it with an extensive UK tour.

The “War is Over” Tour will kick off at Nottingham Rescue Rooms on Sunday November 5th and will run until Nov 18th at Wolverhampton’s Slade Rooms and will also include appearances at London’s Garage on Thursday 16th, as well as appearances at Winter rock festivals including Hard Rock Hell & HRH Prog. They will play alongside bands such as Uriah Heap, Magnum, Threshold and many more. Supports for the tour are also due to be announced shortly.

The band are currently locked away in a studio in Helsinki Finland, where they are mixing down the last tracks for their much anticipated new album.

Singer Mikko Von Hertzen says: “ We (The Brothers) are so excited by the songs on our new album. We took a little breather to give space for seeds to sprout and for musical ideas to grow and flourish. So what we now have is a beautiful garden of all different kinds of songs. We feel there is a new fresh magic and energy in this record that we are all extremely excited about and we cannot wait to unleash these songs across audiences in the UK”
