February 17th Midira Records will release Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra's 8th album 'Dize' on cd. Dize is Dage's twin-album, recorded during the same studio sessions a while ago. Dize is up for pre-order at the Midira shop, It comes in a very limited release of only 180 copies (plus unlimited downloads off course). Midira also offers a special limited pre-order bundle including Piiptsjilling's very fine 4th cd-album 'Moarntiids', published in 2014 and sold out on our own Bandcamp! With Dize we complete the "D-thing trilogy" of Dage, Desimber and Dize, more or less.
Kleefstra|Bakker|Kleefstra will do a short UK-tour in April, check our live dates for that.

Piiptsjilling rarely plays live, but when it does... December 3rd Piiptsjilling opened Matthias König's exhibition 'A road trip through Fr¥$lâN-N-N...n in one month' in the city of The Hague. We recorded the gig and thought it was such a nice recording that we also decided to publish it. It's called 'Kjeld' (Frisian for cold, because it was pretty cold in the venue) and it comes as a very, very limited self-released 3" CDr-thingy, just like Slieperswaar. Only 50 hand numbered copies!
You can order (and download) Kjeld over at our Bandcamp! Later this year there's more Piiptsjilling coming up. Prepare for the group's fifth studio-album, which will come as a very nicely designed special issue.
