First show confirmed [6 March ’22]

Pallbearer + Akelei: 11 August 2022 Patronaat, Haarlem

Good news: Akelei is definitely coming back to the stage in 2022! So far we have just one confirmed date, and it’s in August, but what a bill… Patronaat in Haarlem has invited us to open for none other than Pallbearer, who are among the bigger bands in the doom scene right now. Their debut album Sorrow and Extinction came out ten years ago and the group is headlining a tour to celebrate the anniversary. I have several Pallbearer records in my collection, including the debut, and the cool thing is that our bands share some musical qualities. Think of the heavy, down-tuned guitars, emphasis on melody and use of clean vocals. You’d have to look hard to arrange a more suitable match. Also, for us it offers an opportunity to finally play some of the new music live. I’ve been thinking about which songs to select and the EP will obviously be represented, but the rest is up in the air as of yet. It will mostly depend on how much playing time we’re granted; it tends to allow for three or four songs. More on that later. For now, check out this awesome poster:
