Iedere stroming leidt uiteindelijk tot een tegenstroming, ook in de muziek. In de overvloed van grunge begin jaren 90 ontstond slowcore (of sadcore), waarbij de inhoud en vorm van de alternatieve rock werd teruggebracht tot een minimale en atmosferische invulling. Bekende exponenten van deze muzieksoort zijn onder meer Low en Red House Painters, die ieder […]
Downriver Dead Men Go are a Dutch band. It is the side project of band members of the band Caitlin (Gerrit Koekebakker, Fernandez Burton and Andy de Zeeuw), and additional musician Gijs van Rijn. Tides is the band’s debut album. I love the cover of the album, a beautiful and serene painting. This album was […]

Some more great reviews from The Even Ground and Streetclip.tv are to read at: http://www.theevenground.com/indie-music-album-reviews/downriver-dead-men-go-tides and at: http://www.streetclip.tv/magazine/details/reviews/article/downriver-dead-man-go-tides/
We received the first great reviews of our album: http://www.whiteroomreviews.nl/cdreview/tides and http://progpraat.com/2015/06/23/downriver-dead-men-go-tides/
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.
