Today we have a special present to you guys: we are launching our
brand new official The Gathering channel at youtube! This is our very
first one, and you will find some videos and soon some personal recordings from
the band here
The first videos you can see are from our try out show Saturday 20th June (Purmerend) in the Netherlands.
We have also done some off stage recordings (they will be online soon)
so watch out; you might even see someone you know;-).

We’re all back home again after a great weekend! It was such a joy to play live again, after 2 years, and actually do what it is all about: playing live, meet you all and have a great night (in fact, 2 nights!). I think we did a great job both nights, especially Silje, as it was her first 2 gigs with us. Of course we were all a bit nervous, especially in Heerlen, but after a couple of songs we were really rolling and we were enjoying every minute of it! Congratulations to the people who won a chat with us backstage, it was all nice meeting you! It means a lot if people travel from Mexico, USA, Russia, even Taiwan (!) just to see us play live. I hope lots of gigs will follow in the future.
Some other news: The West Pole is now available on iTunes. So if you don’t believe in CD’s and vinyl anymore, but want to hear the album anyway, go to the store and download it. Cheers!

Since we after all are playing our first gigs in almost two years and it will be the first gig with Silje we thought we should do something special for you guys attending the gigs. We are planning to have a lot of fun at these first gigs and they will be very personal and special to us, so we decided we will give away some brand new merch, signed posters and cds, and a little meet&greet where some of you can meet up with the band to have a nice chat and take some pics, and the best of all; we might even film YOU!
All you have to do is to send us an email to email@example.com telling us a shortly why you should be the one and include your full name.
The winners will get announced during the gig.
UPDATE: Wow! We have got a lot of replies from you guys already to our little competition! It has been great to read so many nice emails!:-)
Some of you have forgotten to add what day you will be attending, please remember to add this to your email or you will miss out of the contest! And please note this is ONLY for people who will be attending these two special gigs in Holland.
We’ve designed an e-card to promote the Gathering some more over the internet and we thought it would be a good idea to share it with you all. If you like it, feel free to spread the word as well. You might have some friends whom you think could be introduced to the band with the West Pole. Of course, you can just use the link to the card, but things always looks more attractive when they’re well presented
So Here are the codes available to post this card and spread the word!
In the future you’ll be able to find the e-card back at the Media page.

We thought it was time to boost our little MySpace player with some more songs from The West Pole. The new songs will be No Bird Call, A Constant Run and Capital Of Nowhere, so go check ‘em out here.
What’s more? We are finally busy scheduling a European Tour this autumn! When we have more details we will let you know! This will be our 20th anniversary tour, something to celebrate we think! But first things first: the try-out gigs are almost there. We are enjoying the rehearsals and preparations a lot! These gigs are very special (and rare!) and we hope you will all come by. We can’t wait to play live again, after almost 2 years!
