Record Store Day is coming up in just over two weeks! If you haven't yet planned your crazy Record Store Day runaround tour like TivoliVredenburg programmer Johan Gijsen has (check Johan's list!(Dutch)) there's probably some time left to squeeze in a Snowstar Record Store Day show. Here are your options:

18/04 Snowstar shows:
11:00 broeder Dieleman - De Waterput, Bergen op Zoom
11:00 I Am Oak - RecordFriend Elpees, Amsterdam
13:30 broeder Dieleman - Grey, Breda
16:00 broeder Dieleman - Velvet Music Leiden
16:00 Town of Saints - Plato Groningen

And of course we're also releasing the Bonnie 'Prince' Billy & broeder Dieleman Split 7". That might just be the most exciting Snowstar release to date. Best of luck hunting down a copy!

It's gonna be a great day, we hope to see you there!

Record Store Day

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy & broeder Dieleman

10 mar 15

On April 18th it's record store day 2015. In honour of this year's record store day we present the extended collaboration between our own broeder Dieleman and folk legend Bonnie 'Prince' Billy.

In 2014 they did a fully sold out tour of 8 Dutch churches, all shows were played entirely acoustically. This unique tour was sold out within the hour, a great succes which both artists felt was deserving of a follow-up.

For record store day they will be releasing a split 7" for which Bonnie 'Prince' Billy translated 'Gloria' into English. Broeder Dieleman covered 'Three Questions" in his distinct Zealandic dialect.

To celebrate the 7" (and his birthday!) broeder Dieleman will play in-stores on April 18th, followed by an Molenpark De Ster in Utrecht, hosted by EKKO.

The split 7" will be released on Snowstar Records and will be available in limited numbers during Record Store Day, both in the Benelux and the United States.

Town of Saints: 'The Silent Sea'

18 feb 15

Director Sacha Polak chose Town of Saints' The Silent Sea to be featured in a scene of ZURICH. The band can be seen and heard in the film, whilst playing the song.

Singer Harmen Ridderbos on the collaboration:
"The Silent Sea is about a desolate place where people do not talk about the past. The thought behind the song, as well as the atmosphere, match the film perfectly. The movie pictures a desolate place just like I envisioned while writing this song. We're very happy with the way the two got together."
