No gigs or tours for a while, but there is some good stuff coming up in the next few months. Some releases and a very special Piiptsjilling-project:

Piiptsjilling - Molkedrippen (cd)
The third Piiptsjilling album will be released by Spekk Records. Recorded during the same session days as the album Wurdskrieme.

Davis|Kleefstra|Kleefstra - Tongerswel (cd)
The postponed, first album with Gareth Davis will be published soon on Home Normal.

Kleefstra|Pruiksma|Kleefstra - Deislieper (cd)
The first release with multi percussionist Sytze Pruiksma will be a very nice album on Hibernate Recordings.

Piiptsjilling will be the artist in residence during the Into The Great Wide Open festival on the Isle of Vlieland in the Dutch Wadden Sea. For this project, called 'Seeljocht', the band is bringing some friends along. A very fine project, including new music, video, a release containing cd and dvd, and off course Piiptsjilling and friends live on the finest stage of the festival on September 2nd-4th. More about Seeljocht later!

Anything else? Yes, off course. Recordings with Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra for a Japanese film, other recordings with a small kinda big band in Berlin, something with a boat maybe and hopefully quite some gigs with Sytze Pruiksma here, there and everywhere. Stay tuned.
