OBA & Roodkapje

This afternoon (between 16.00-17.00 h.) Saskia & Arne will appear on the radio program ‘Songwriters Guild Live’ (AmsterdamFM, 106.8 FM). The recording takes place at the Open- bare Bibliotheek Amsterdam, so everybody’s welcome to watch the performance.

And this Saturday (August 25) Labasheeda will be playing in the full line-up with The Sugarettes at Roodkapje in Rotterdam.

Formalisme.nl exhibition

On Sunday June 24 Labasheeda will do a (semi) acoustic performance during the opening of Formalisme.nl, an exhibition of paintings by Marco Rump at the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.

Free entrance, so be there.

Radio Wave session

We’ve just arrived back from the tour yesterday.

Besides five regular gigs we also did two radio sessions in Prague featuring Saskia on acoustic guitar and Erwin drumming on a cardboard box. You can listen to the April 30 session for Radio Wave here.

UPDATE: the StreetCulture session from April 27 is now online as well.

Split single + April tour

The split 7″ with Wavezero is now available as well!

On Wednesday April 25 we will be heading to Germany and the Czech Republic again for a six day tour (see agenda). Erwin van der Laan will be behind the drums this time.

Castfat Shadows

Our new full-length release, Castfat Shadows, is available from April 16. The album is released on transparent green vinyl and as a digital download – no CD this time (yep, the times they are a-changin’ indeed). You can listen to two of the new tracks in the music player.

The split 7″ with Wavezero is delayed a bit, but will be released in the near future.

New Labasheeda LP + split single

Currently test pressings are being made of not only one, but two new Labasheeda records: the full-length Castfat Shadows (planned for April) and a split 7″ with Wavezero. The 7″ will be released in March, and contains the song ‘Liver Spots’, which will not be on the LP. Stay tuned.

Love no Love Vol. 2

The second volume of the Love No Love compilation will feature the track ‘Winter’ by Labasheeda (previously released on The Twilight State). 100% of the album sales benefit groups working against domestic abuse and assault. The double CD will be released on December 28 in an edition of 300 numbered copies. Check The Levee Breaking for more information.

German / Czech tour

Labasheeda will be on tour in Germany from November 3-8 (also doing a gig in Prague), check the agenda for more details. Due circumstances Dyan will be replaced by Assi Weitz (Sophya, Sex Dolls, ex-Gone Bald) during the tour. Also joining us are André (driving, visuals, record sales) and Brutus (barking).

By the way, the new record is mixed and will be mastered in the near future.… Read more
