Annulation du concert de Birth of joy

POSTED: SEPTEMBER 26TH 2018

== THE END ==
We have decided to call it quits!

We will still do all announced shows, though they will be the last chances to see us live!

Our FINAL SHOW will be at PARADISO, Amsterdam on JAN 3, 2019. Ticketsale starts coming Tuesday 11am.

THANKS FOR THE AMAZING RIDE!

WE LOVE YOU!!!


L’annonce officielle est parue hier (mercredi 27 septembre), sur l’ensemble des réseaux sociaux  du groupe.
BIRTH OF JOY suspend ses activités,
et par conséquent annule sa tournée européenne 2019.
Nous en avions été informé officieusement par la production le 10 septembre, mais conservions un petit espoir . Une mauvaise nouvelle pour nous et tous les fans du groupe.
Dès lors, nous nous sommes mis en quête d’une autre formation, avec le souci de rester dans le même esprit de la soirée. Après de nombreuses recherches, plusieurs contacts, notre choix s’est porté sur KO KO MO, le groupe nantais aux trois syllabes qui « ébouriffe le Rock Français ».

La soirée du vendredi 8 février aura donc pour affiche : LA POISON  &  KO KO MO.

Si cette nouvelle affiche ne vous convient pas, et que vous aviez acheté vos billets avant le 20 septembre à Saint-Aubin-du-Cormier (date du changement de l’affiche sur nos supports de communication), vous pouvez demander leurs remboursements en vous présentant en mairie.

So, the word is out!

We owe you an explanation (in Dutch below):

It has been 11 years, 1300+ shows, a lot of different vans, airplanes, boats, instruments, lungs and livers. Good times, bad times, small crowds, big crowds, frustration, euphoria, broken legs, fixed relationships, lost strolls, skipped nights etc. etc. …but most of all, it has been – and still is – about the pure joy of us playing together and sharing the love for great music. First only between the 3 of us, but later (lucky us) also with many of you! And what a ride we had, you were/are truly amazing!

Though being Birth of Joy also asks for full commitment. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. Ok, maybe 350 days a year, but no
cheating around. One marriage, one machine, one goal, one path. And it’s as simple as this, after 11 years of giving everything we had to Birth of Joy we also started wondering how it would be to explore different paths, musically but also in general.

Unfortunately, the only way to be able to actually even start exploring, would be to put the whole Birth of Joy-machine on hold indefinitely. As it’s such a comprehensive and time consuming machine, doing something else next to it is just impossible. And having the Birth of Joy machine fuelled with only a part of our energy is just out of the question. Our music doesn’t deserve that, and you certainly do also not!

Hence we decided to call it quits! Maybe we’ll start different bands, maybe not, maybe together, maybe not, maybe we start gardening or maybe we start our own pub, who knows. Hell, we might even come back together again in the future…
Anyway, we hope you enjoyed the ride – we did for sure – and we hope to see you at our last shows, so we can build a few more of those epic parties we tend to have together!

LOVE!

Bob, Kevin and Gertjan
