CD Ruins finally arrived

The CD ‘Ruins’ will soon be shipped to all of you who ordered it through our kickstarter campaign including, if chosen, your T Shirt.

For those who ordered the vinyl, you will receive a cd of Ruins as a gift. The vinyl will hopefully be available round December although nothing is certain in the world of vinyl. The gift is our way of saying sorry for the long wait.

But rest assured!

All our merchandise, including T Shirts of Ruins, Departures and some new designs we are working on will soon be available in our webshop.

Stay tuned!

New video Line In The Sand

Line In The Sand

The 4th of may is Remembrance Day in the Netherlands. To honour those who have fallen for our freedom, we made a video for the song Line in the Sand. This song was written two years ago, and is about war and all the madness that comes with it. Asking ourselves ‘who’s to decide, who lives and who dies, and who draws the line in the sand’. Sadly, the song is even more actual today than when it was written, with war raging once again in Europe. Lest we forget…

Great review in OOR magazine

We just learnt that a great review of our album Tides is printed in a leading Dutch music magazine called OOR, issue 11. For our Dutch fans, please read the article here:

Translated version:
The genre of Prog Rock seems to be the exclusive playing ground of Steven Wilson (and his various bands) and bands that are signed on the Kscope recording label, such as Pineapple Thief and Anathema. Yet, in the Netherlands a number of bands adhere to this genre as well, such as Downriver Dead Men Go. Their album Tides is a collection of stunning melodies that, if you would like to make a comparison, comes close to Nosound (one of Steven Wilson’s pet projects). Languid, with sometimes an acceleration, dreamy, and highbrowed in the positive sense of the word. A musical fulcrum that is carefully structured and worked out. In particular, the moving Never Change, with minimalistic piano melodies, brings out the best of the band. Downriver Dead Men Go restates the Netherlands as an important prog rock country.
