DARKANE To Film California Gigs For Possible DVD

November 26, 2005

DARKANE drummer Peter Wildoer has posted the following tour report on the band's official web site:

"First of all, I have to say that this tour has been far more better than I could ever have expected. We've done and seen so many cool things that the memories will last a lifetime. The crowds at the gigs have been awesome and it's soo cool that people show up early to see us, thanks! It's nice to meet all the fans afterwards at the merch booth and talk to them. I've written soo may autographs that I actually do the same one from time to time now! I guess we've made lots of new fans on this tour and that's the whole reason with the tour, of course also to play for the ones that already know us. Even though we get to play a very short set I enjoy every second of it.

"For me it's an honor and a huge inspiration to play the same stage as the other drummers every day. They freakin' batter their kits soo hard every day, great work guys! The first 12 days we shared bus with STRAPPING YOUNG LAD and I got to spend time with my biggest metal drumming influence Gene Hoglan. When I saw Gene live for the first time in 1993 I could not in my wildest imagination think that we ever would sit in a tour bus together, crazy! I think that a drummer coming to a show on this tour will not be disapointed seeing these unique drummers. One thing is for sure, I have to work on my double bass drumming after seeing the other three drummers blast their way through their songs.

"When we were in Florida and swimming in the pool in the wonderful sunshine we got the news that our loved ones at home had gotten the first snow. Not looking forward to that weather when we get home. Prefer the warmth as we right now are rolling into Las Vegas for a day of and Byron's (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD and FEAR FACTORY) wedding. Looking forward to spend some time in this world known city.

"A big congratulations to the couple that got engaged during our set in Houston, TX. They surely looked happy afterwards, good luck!

"We also spent a day off in New Orleans. It looked like a warzone when we drove into town. Poor people that got hit by this horrible hurricane. We went to the french quarters which were beautiful and dangerous because of their Hand Granade drinks. I got way beyond drunk much because of the SOILWORK guys, thanks... ;-) We surely had a great time there, I think?

"We are planning to film the gigs in L.A. (Anaheim and Hollywood) for a possible future DVD. We'll do a few different songs on the two shows to get as many songs filmed as possible. So be sure to go to both shows to get more of DARKANE!

"Well, that's it for now. We're in Las Vegas right now and here we will spend all our million dollars we've earned soo far on DARKANE..."

DARKANE are touring in support of their fourth album, "Layers of Lies", available now on Nuclear Blast Records. It is the follow-up to the band's third studio CD, "Expanding Senses", which was released in 2002.
