It’s still pretty amazing to be in Kids With Guns, although I miss playing shows every weekend. The pure adrenaline rush I get from playing live is something we can’t compensate by practising three times a week. We played some fun shows though lately, we did our first support show ever in lovely Middelburg for our friends in John Coffey, (who are taking over the world) and traveled to Mönchengladbach(Germany) last week to play a show in a rundown venue with April. Good times.

I know though, that the time we spent right now, both in the rehearsel room and at our lovely home, making plans, talking about what we want Kids With Guns to be are probably the most important months to us ever. Yesterday we had Guiseppe and Thanos from Bodypolitics (we heard some of their new songs.. geeezzz) over for some food and drinks and Giuseppe told me that he was affraid that we would stick to playing shows without ever taking a break to start creating and developing. He said he was happy to see that we did. I sure do not feel that way all the time, but I think he is right. We are definitely getting there where we want to be. I just really can’t wait to start recording and fire up the whole thing again. After seeing Dave Grohl’s Soundcity I’m even more excited than ever to record in a studio and leave the recordings in our livingroom behind. As soon as we make a decision where we’ll be recording and with who, I’ll let you know. We don’t even have a clue as of yet, so I can’t wait myself either.
If you want to see us play some new songs, these are the shows for this spring.
