From an extreme high to an extraordinary low. It happened to the Dutch Post-Metal unit An Evening With Knives early this year. Straight after the release off the well-received album ‘Sense of Gravity’ on March 6 in an nearly sold out Effenaar (Eindhoven), the full release tour got cancelled due to Covid measures. The flight tickets for the USA tour were already bought. What remained was a voucher. Things got even worse when drummer Ivo decided to leave the band a few weeks after. From then on it became silent.
Silent, but the band did not hibernate the last months. In all ease the search for a worthy replacement started. “The advantage of the ‘Corona period’ is that there is no deadline. This gave us the opportunity to draw outside the lines and to try out unobvious options. After a period of jamming we found a perfect match in Rowan Hendrix” the band states.
Coming Friday, December 18 on 8PM (CET) the band breaks the silence with a free ‘Lockdown live stream’ broadcasted on www.eindhovenrockcity.nl
Tune in on time tough, there is no option for playback.
