Following their successful festival appearances this summer, Dutch blues rockers DeWolff are announcing another European tour as part of the promotion of their seventh album "Tascam Tapes" (Mascot/Rough Trade), which will be released on January 10, 2020.
Seven studio and three live albums, a Dutch Grammy and an album recorded with Black Keys producer Mark Neill - there are many reasons why DeWolffim's rock genre is currently being heralded. The band certainly also benefits from their musical range: When bassist Roger Glover heard DeWolff playing live, it reminded him of his Deep Purple Mark II formation. When Seasick Steve once woke up backstage, he thought he was in 1972 and the Allman Brothers would play. DeWolff are rebirths of a generation of rock musicians who knew no stylistic boundaries. The young trio from Geleen (Limburg) not only have their own analogue studio in Utrecht, where many of their albums were made, but they are also young enough to have many more to follow. Because in 2008, at the time of signing their first record contract, keyboardist Robin Piso was 17 years old and the two brothers Luka (dr) and Pablo van de Poel (g, v) were 14 and 16 years old respectively, which says a lot about their talent. The latter has since been voted twice the best guitarist in the Netherlands. They borrow the band name from the character "The Wolf" from the Tarantino classic 'Pulp Fiction', played by Harvey Keitel. Concerts in Amsterdam's Paradiso were followed in 2010 by first appearances in Belgium and Germany, including at the 'Crossroads' festival in Bonn, a WDR rock palace recording. Their website certified DeWolff at the time as "shaking the world with wild, psychedelic sixties blues rock". The three Dutchmen would take the listener "into a time when Led Zeppelin, Cream, Pink Floyd and Deep Purple ruled the world". In the ten years that followed, DeWolff played over 1,000 concerts in Europe, Australia, Indonesia and even Russia. Their explosive mixture of Blues Rock, Soul and Psychedelic is unique. The three artists not only play their music, they live it. You only have to experience the band live for two minutes, then you know why the golden age of rock music is not over even in the 21st century. With their new album "Tascam Tapes", which will be released on 10 January 2020 via Mascot/Rough Trade, the three have produced twelve new tracks, which of course have nothing to do with the previous albums. Variety is DeWolff's trump card: This time they didn't use drums, a Hammond organ or guitar amps. The album was recorded completely on a portable 4-track cassette recorder from the eighties, only portable instruments and drum samples from old soul and funk discs can be heard. What's the matter with you? Because the whole thing was created on tour, in impossible places like in a tour bus, in small backstage areas or at dark motorway service areas. The result is a crude mix of the Beastie Boys and Deep Purple. That's no way to hear DeWolff! The video of the first single 'It Aint Easy' will be released parallel to the announcement.
