They will also play a show in ACU in Utrecht (28/5) and in Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond in Amsterdam (5/6). For our German fans: Herrek will be coming your way since they've been confirmed to play at Freakstock (9/8)! Two weeks earlier, the band will be performing at Welcome To The Village Festival in Leeuwarden.
During these shows the band will play new songs combined with some older tunes (like 'Rain' underneath). And if you want, you can still listen to their latest release 'A M' via our website and/or Bandcamp.
And have you already read this review of 'A M' written by Krenten Uit de Pop? We love that last sentence of that review: "A deep bow for Herrek and their recordlabel Snowstar that still continues with making beautiful albums."
