ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN Reveals Title Track Of New Album


With around a month to go till the release of Anneke van Giersbergen’s brand new solo album ‘Drive’, we are now pleased to premiere the title track from said album, due to be released on the 23rd September. Check out this fantastic slice of rock below:

Anneke had this to say about the track: “In a time when entire albums are being created by transferring files online, I really wanted to do things the old-fashioned way and record an album together with a group of musicians in a studio. The album is infused with enthusiasm and freshness, I’m really happy with it.”

She is also pleased to announce that she will be taking part in the first annual Progressive Nation At Sea 2014, which is due to take place between the 18th and 22nd February. The cruise also includes frequent collaborator Devin Townsend, as well as Transatlantic, Spock’s Beard, King’s X and many more. For more information and tickets, check out
