HEIDEROOSJES IS HISTORY (but the final show is on DVD out now!)

After a fantastic sold out farewell tour through Europe, Heideroosjes ended 23 years of touring and making albums. After 1500 shows and hundreds of thousands of sold albums, the Ancienne Belgique in BRUSSELS was the church for a rock 'n roll funeral. Two sold out nights in a venue packed with devoted fans and a band that was convinced to kick everyone's ass for the very last time. How did that look?

Well, you can see that for yourself because the DVD of the final show is out now. This document contains over 4 hours of footage including the complete concert and tour-reports. The DVD comes with a free photobook! You can order your copy here

Like Neil Young once said and Kurt Cobain wrote; "It's better to burn out than to fade away". Heideroosjes agree with that one. Thank you, wherever you are, for making our band the best experience we ever felt in our lives. Stay loud..

MESSAGE TO OUR FANS

Twenty-two years ago we started a musical novel that we never expected would contain as many chapters as it did. Yet today we face the final chapter: Heideroosjes are quitting.

Our last album is called CEASE-FIRE and will be released on Monday, November 21. At the same time our farewell tour starts and it will continue until summer 2012. After that, it’s over.

We have been together with the same four guys for over half our lives. We have done nearly 1500 shows in countries all over the world; we have sold hundreds of thousands of albums and toured with almost all our favorite bands. We have lived our dream. Being in this band isn’t a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. And we’ve loved it.

But now we’re feeling the cracks in the surface somehow. Not from playing shows - that is still absolutely great. But we are fed up with all the stuff that comes along with being in a professional band. The constant pressure; the business bullshit.

We also found out after our sabbatical in 2010 that the personal priorities of the band members had changed. We often talked about that and the conclusion was always the same: if we want to keep our mutual friendship strong, then we need to get rid of this intensive professional collaboration. It hurts but that’s what we’re gonna do.

But don’t worry; we’re not leaving the arena through the exit-door. No way. Right now we're in the studio because we are gonna end this dream in style; with an album and a tour. One last round, at full speed!

From mid November onwards we will be on our farewell tour. You can find all the venues and cities in our Tour section .

In 2012 we will also be rocking a select number of festivals and then the final curtain falls at the end of the summer.

We hope to see you during our farewell tour! For one last party in the pit.

Many thanks for the unforgettable lifetime of memories you have all given us.

Marco, Frank, Fred, Igor

LADY GAGA STEALS FROM HEIDEROOSJES

LADY GAGA STEALS FROM HEIDEROOSJES 

In the past few days we got several e-mails from fans telling us popdiva Lady Gaga stole some of our tunes. We thought it was a joke but after checking it turns out she and her composers ripped the intro of our song “WE ALL SHARE THE SAME SUN” for the new Lady Gaga song “Electric Chapel”.

Not only the guitarriff but also the Mid Eastern sound is similar to the song we made in 2004!

Check and decide for yourself:

Finally?! The so called 'sabbatical year' is over! Heideroosjes are back on track and preparing to hit the road again. We will start with a second round of our (seated) comedy tour. This hilarious mix of absurd humor, sensitive songs and brutal punksongs turned out to be a success in 2008/2009. So we decided to play some extra shows in Dutch and Belgian venues we haven't been before.

For those of you who like this side-project; a DVD called "Manie! Manie!" will be released 1th of February! It contains the entire theatre-show and some weird bonus-footage!

In the meantime Heideroosjes start writing songs for a new album. In summertime we'll play some festivals, to warm up again for the real thing, which is: rockin out on stages everywhere around the globe :-)

See ya in the pit!

Heideroosjes finished the recordings of their 20 years anniversary DOUBLE-ALBUM! One disc contains a tribute brought by sixteen European bands, the other disc presents Heideroosjes doing songs of artists who inspired them. It's a great mix of expected (Pennywise, Uniform Choice, Spermbirds, Ramones) and unexpected artists (Billy Joel, The Stray Cats, Nik Kershaw, Johnny Cash). Street-date will be JUNE 5th and the title of this low-priced double album is: "20 YEARS; ODE & TRIBUTE".
