the last update from us was about christmas. It’s obviously not christmas anymore – it’s April, spring has arrived. Spring is about flowers rising from the frozen ground, spring is about new ideas, new leaves on the trees, etc. So – you might be wondering, what has happened since the last blog post? What’s new in the land of the band Hymns from Nineveh?
Well, in 2011 we released 2 albums and played +40 shows from March-December. 2011 was a pretty wild and fantastic year. 2012 will be GREAT!
In January we took some time off, but one of the things we did do was, that we moved to a new rehearsal space in the heart of Nørrebro, Copenhagen. We also bought a bunch of new instruments: an old piano, a mandolin, a bouzouki, a zither, an electric guitar and a bulbul tarang (also known as the shahi baaja).
In February we played our first two shows in Norway as a band – at the cool festival By:Larm. This was a great experience, and we can’t wait to come back to Norway (We’re playing @ Slottsfjell Festival in July!). Norwegian Gaffa was at one of the shows and gave it 5/6 stars. Whoah!
March was used for rehearsing for our shows in April. We’re playing two shows at two of the finest venues in Denmark:
Sunday 22nd of April we’re playing at STORE VEGA in Copenhagen. Saturday the 28th of April we’re playing at Voxhall in Aarhus. This will be our only Danish club shows for quite a while. We will be supported by the great, great band Alice Sings the Petterson Songbook. We hope to see as many of you as possible!
With love – The Hymnboy
