DOOL joins District-19!

Dark rockers DOOL are teaming up with District 19 for exclusive European bookings (excl. The Netherlands). The renowned Dutch band released their highly anticipated debut album ‘Here Now, There Then’ earlier this year via Prophecy Records. Get in touch with us for more information!

Lead singer Ryanne van Dorst (Ella Bandita) commented: “We are very excited to continue our future endeavors together with District 19. Roman has been passionately following us for the last year, and in more than one way we feel that we are speaking the same language. Onward to infinity.”

Something’s stirring underneath the industrial fumes of Rotterdam. Amidst the rancid rats, malodorant traffic and greasy trays of manufactured meat, vast masses of unobtained, raw energy flow about freely. From the emptiness which arose from the omnipresence of materialism and technology, something new can manifest in its wake. Turning their backs to the metropole’s mass-identity and urban-individual, the unavoidable birth of DOOL has taken place.

DOOL wanders through dim streets, out of the city – into the wild. Carried by infinite, sometimes hypnotizing guitar parts, the music takes the listener from dark caves, inhabited by ancient ghosts (“Oweynagat”), to the deep abysses of a broken heart (“Death of Love”). At times sensual and teasing, like a child molester holding a bag of candy on a playground (“Words on Paper”), at other times imposing and ominous, in the sinister, 10 minute-long epic “Vantablack”.

The band, consisting of singer/guitarist Ryanne van Dorst (Elle Bandita, Bullerslug), Micha Haring (The Devil’s Blood, The Hands) on drums, Job van de Zande (The Devil’s Blood, Malkovich) on bass, Reinier Vermeulen (The New Media) on guitar and Nick Polak (Gold) on guitar, are aggressive as well as dynamic, alternating shreds of dark rock, gothic pop, as well as bits of psychedelic metal in an ever surprising manner. Audibly influenced by a wide range of bands and genres, DOOL bends their musical nurture to their own creation, while appraising those who came before them.

All those who wander are DOOL.

Wederganger joins forces with District 19

District 19 is proud to represent Wederganger as exclusive European agent. Get in touch for more information!

WEDERGANGER commented: “It pleases WEDERGANGER to hereby announce the cooperation with DISTRICT 19 for all European conjurations.”

“Wederganger was formed in Arnhem, Gelderland, by Alfschijn, MJWW, and Botmuyl in 2013. The Dutch word “wederganger” translates as “one who walks again” (literally “again-walker”) and refers to an undead returning to the world of the living, a revenant. WEDERGANGER consists of a core of three founding members (Alfschijn, Botmuyl, MJWW) and several session members. Music and lyrics (in Dutch) are inspired by Germanic eschatology and Gueldrian folklore dealing with spirits, undeath and horror. WEDERGANGER’s style is characterized by the use of both screams and chants, and dissonant chords.”
