Vuur release debut single Days Go By – London

“Days Go By – London” will be part of the band’s debut studio album.

VUUR is a group founded by Anneke Van Giersbergen (Gentle Storm, ex-The Gathering) and its a project that represents her heavy metal side. In the band’s official bio, it says:

In early 2016, Anneke decided for the sake of clarity to narrow her musical focus, choosing to go in a folk acoustic direction as a solo artist and in a heavy progressive metal direction as a band vocalist. The name VUUR – translated from Dutch as “fire”, which can also be interpreted to mean “passion” or “drive” – was chosen as a moniker to represent Anneke’s metal side, with the idea that when fans buy a ticket with the VUUR name on it they will be getting her heavy progressive music, while an Anneke van Giersbergen show will be entirely different.

About the sound of the band, Anneke explains:

You could say VUUR‘s music has the melancholy of The Gathering and certain elements from The Gentle Storm, but it’s darker with fewer folk elements. It’s still melodic and warm, but heavy.

VUUR will release their full length debut in the fall of 2017 produced by Joost van den Broek, who will also be involved in some of the writing and arranging, and through the label InsideOut Records. They also will embark on an european tour.
