About DDMG


Beginning as a side project of the alternative rock band 'Caitlin' the slower, rhythmical tones of some of our songs bought a greater depth and individuality away from the mainstream alt.rock that we decided to pursue. Gijs van Rijn (then came the flood) was brought in on keyboard and we began doing live shows.

After a short while of stagnation we brought on board Peter Van Dijk as our new keyboardist and the sound of Downriver Dead Men Go finally grew into our now deeper, mesmerising, atmospheric, melancholy sound.

In 2014 the band began recording their debut album and this was released in 2015 under their own management. And late 2015 Michel Varkevisser (guitar and backing vocals) joins the band.

Early 2016 Downriver Dead Men Go signs deal with Freia Music for the global distribution and promotion of their latest album Tides. Around this time Remco den Hollander (synth) replaced the talented Peter van Dijk. Peter will still be involved with the second album. Later that year they have found a very talented new drummer who goes by the name of Manuel Renaud. Current line-up feels great!

Their aim now is to get Downriver Dead Men Go out playing gigs as much as possible to promote the album and widen our growing fan base.

Currently writing new material and it sounds promising! New album out somewhere in 2017.
