Introducing…

Hey all, so after almost 2 months of jamming it up with loads of sweet guitar players, we finally made a decision and get to present to you our brand new guitar player Nick!

WHoohoo! We are gonna abduct him to our rehearsal room for the next coupla weeks, but he’ll be glad to come say hi in person once he joins us on the stage soon enough :) See you soon! xA

Good times, sad times

Thanks so much everyone for a wonderful time the last months! We played so many amazing places (Incubate, Valkhof, Popronde <3), which exceeded our hopes and expectations for this time. Now it's on to the future! We are back to writing in the living room for now, with big plans and dreams. Unfortunately, our guitar player Marlon won't be a part of this future, as he has decided he needs to focus on other things at this point in his life. We are very sad to say goodbye, but also excited to find a new band-member who can keep up with our ambitions... We're currently planning some jamsessions to find a worthy successor. If you feel like you might be up it and join us in our master-plans, please do send us a line at info (at) amberarcades.com :)

New-ish song caught on video!

Hey everyone, last Sunday we played Valkhof Festival along with some rad names like Two Gallants, Akron/Family and Midnight Juggernauts. And we played a new song, and someone filmed it! Check it out:

Also this really nice guy from Cortonville interviewed me and I said some stuff.

Update time…

Time for an official update: our EP release was great, big thanks to everyone who came out!
Ever since the release we’ve played a number of awesome shows, for example together with the Veils! Now summer is coming up and we’re playing even more sweet gigs…Valkhof Festival, Noorderzon, we can’t wait! Check out the details at the Live section of this site and see you there!

Also: for those who missed it, we are now on Spotify:

We’re such a tease…

Tomorrow is the big day: OUR EP RELEASE PARTY IN EKKO! And to get you guys in the mood we went out and recorded a session for Ekko with 3voor12/Utrecht in Kapitaal. Crazy beautiful location with loads of ancient machines and tropical plants. Into the great wide open indeed ;)

Live @ Club3voor12

Last Thursday we played a set at Club 3voor12. And it was our first show with the whole band together! And it was pretty awesome. Thanks for those that came out to support us. For those who couldn’t make it, 3voor12 has written a nice review of it which you can read here. And also, they shot a cool multi-angle video:

Knalland Live Session: “Benjamin”

A couple of weeks ago we recorded a live version of our song “Benjamin” which will appear on the Knalland album (released end of May!). It was filmed a hauntingly beautiful location – part church, part factory – with loads of natural reverb, just the way we like it. Check it!

Picture Time!

Last Monday I met up with the amazing photographer Patricia Kuiper to shoot some new media-pics for Amber Arcades! Ended up with some great stuff… You can check out the whole sessions right here!
