The 'Bang the Drum' album has been released!

On Saturday we celebrated the release of the 'Bang the Drum' album in a nice venue called EKKO in our hometown Utrecht. It was a great experience to play the album front-to-back to our fans, family and friends. We'd like to thank everyone at EKKO, our audience and the many people who provided technical support for making this evening so succesful and rather special!

Royal Parks opened for us with his great songs and had some great pedalsteel support by Jan-Paul de Bondt on the Little Feet cover 'Willing'. Jan-Paul also played pedalsteel on our album and joined us on stage for some songs. We got a very funny introduction by poet Ingmar Heytze, who wrote our Dutch biography. We already got some glowing reviews of our show here, here and here.

'Bang the Drum' is now for sale through several vendors in the Netherlands and is also distributed in the USA (Kool Kat Musik) and Japan (This Time Records). For other regions we are happy to offer streaming, digital downloads and CD's or vinyl copies of both our albums shipped worldwide through our new and improved Bandcamp page. For more about buying our album please check out the 'Music' page of this site.

In the next months we'll be playing a lot of live shows to support and introduce our album. We hope to meet you at one of our gigs!

Four Stars and 8/10: album reviews are coming in!

Several Dutch magazines reviewed our album already: Music Maker Magazine awarded us with 4/5 stars, as did Lust for Life. The Strutter blog rated the album at 8.2/10 in this (written in English) review, while PlatoMania went for a straight eight. We are grateful and happy people seem to like our album.

We are also happy to report that The Maureens will feature on some live radio broadcasts, both local and national. We'll keep you posted!

Last but not least we were given 'Album of the Month' status by Thistime, our Japanese distributor. Thanks!

New tour dates, New single, Oor Magazine

Two weeks before the release of the Bang the Drum album all kinds of things are cooking at the Maureens HQ. Our releasetour got extended with some more dates so we've updated our tour poster. Do pay us a visit if you are around!

Friday, 28th of August we'll release the second single of the Bang the Drum album. It's called 'September' and if you are into church organs, pedalsteel and vocal harmonies you might just like it.

To top it all Dutch music magazine OOR gave us a full page in their August issue. You can find the original spread and an English translation here.
