Anneke van Giersbergen’s VUUR are pleased to announce the release of their debut album ‘In This Moment We Are Free – Cities‘ for the October 20th, 2017 worldwide through InsideOutMusic. Each track on the new album is named after a city that made an impression on Anneke while touring the world, and to celebrate the release they have launched a contest where fans can guess each of the locations featured on the album, and win exclusive and rare merchandise. 

Anneke comments:

“Often I have a strong feeling for a city where I perform. It can be anything, sometimes I visualize a city as a man or a character, or sometimes something happened in that city that I want to write about. All 11 songs on the album pay tribute to a certain city and with this contest we’d like to give our fans the opportunity to guess which cities will be featured on the album and win some unique items.”

The band also recently announced they will team up with Scar Symmetry for a short co-headline tour in December. Opening act for these exclusive shows will be My Propane.

Anneke had this to say: “We’re very excited to present our debut album live and hit the road this December. Scar Symmetry and VUUR will each be playing full sets every night. VUUR‘s set-list consists of mostly new material, but the audience will get to hear some of my previous outings and collaborations as well.”

Dec 10, 2017 TivoliVredenburg Utrecht (NL)

As well as this, in May 2018 Residentie Orkest The Hague will host an encounter with Anneke van Giersbergen. Both nights will feature a career-spanning concert with orchestral arrangements. The song selection will even include material from her yet to be released VUUR album.

Anneke comments: “It’s such an honor to be backed by these grand classical musicians with strings and brass interpreting my music. The material will be an interesting cross-section of my career. Some reworks will be a contrast from the original and some, for instance like the song ‘Travel‘, will be given a treatment that is a logical extension of the The Gathering’s original album arrangement.”
