You’re invited to our free Album Release Concert

We received our new album, called ‘Heroes and Foes,’ from the factory now and it will be released on Sunday afternoon, October the 16th, 4 PM. Then we will give our new albumrelease concert in the beautiful old Barthkapel  in the centre of The Hague! And to give the opportunity to everybody to visit this concert in these harsh times the admission is totally free. The concert will take place in the old chapel in Brouwersgracht 2K (near het Paard and het Koorenhuis). Chabliz will play songs from the new album and one older song. Drinks are not for free, but not expensive either (and not obliged of course). Please be there in time, because you might need to ring the doorbell to get in (the doorbell will be switched off on 16.15). Doors open on 15.45. Looking forward to meet you there!

On the same day our new album will be available on all the streaming platforms, such as Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Deezer, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, YouTube, etc.

Curious? You can pre-save this brand new album already on Spotify here, (you might need to scroll down), then it will pop up in your music library on the release day, and you could be one of the first people to listen to it.

Our previous albums are back on the platforms and a new Albumrelease Concert in October

Some of you might have noticed that our previous ‘Nightporter’ and ‘Straight Stories’ albums were deleted from the platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, etc.) for four weeks, during the summer holidays, due to the bankruptcy of our former aggregator. We re-uploaded the albums with our current aggregator and luckily our songs are back on the platforms since a few days.

Right now we’re working hard to get our brand new album ready. On Sunday afternoon, October the 16th, 4 PM we will give our new albumrelease concert in the beautiful old Barthkapel chapel in the centre of The Hague! And to give the opportunity to everybody to visit this concert in these harsh times the entrance is totally free! The concert will take place in the old chapel in Brouwersgracht 2K (near het Paard and het Koorenhuis). Chabliz will play songs from the new album and a few older songs. Coffee, tea and other drinks are not for free, but not expensive either (and not obliged of course). Please be there in time, because you’ll need to ring the doorbell to get in and otherwise you might disturb the concert, or worse, can’t get in anymore (the doorbell will be switched off on 16.15). Doors open on 15.30. Looking forward to meet you there!

Can’t find songs from our Nightporter and Straight Stories albums anymore on Spotify, Apple Music or elsewhere?

That’s because our old aggregator unfortunately went bankrupt this week. Their supplier, Ampsuite therefore shut down all their songs. For we were their client, our songs were suddenly shut down temporarily too, without a warning from our aggregator in advance. Right now we’re restoring our albums in the platforms again. This will take a few days, or a week, or a little bit more. Today we spent the afternoon to upload our Straight Stories album to our other aggregator again, but they have to send it to the platforms and this will take a while. Nightporter will follow on Monday. Hopefully it will go fast and hopefully we will get our thousands of streams, our dozens of playlist spots and our five years of history back!
Meanwhile our albums are still on Bandcamp.

We wish you a beautiful summer

Last weekend we played live at the Knapsack Festival in a collab with Gluren bij de Buren and guitarplayer Ximo Sirera in a boat on the channels of Delft. Watch the pictures on our insta account. In August we will play live on the Gouda Leeft festival and in October we’ll have our new album release. We will celebrate that with a concert in The Hague. During the summer we work on the last songs of the album. In the meantime we wish you a beautiful summer!

Concerts, indoor and outdoor

It was great (but hot) to give a livestream concert for you again last Saturday on Composers Day (plus Record Store Day). Watch the pictures on our insta page. This Summer we will play live again (and that’s great!) in July on the Knapsack Festival in a collab with Gluren bij de Buren and we’ll also play at Gouda Leeft in August. In the mean time we work on our new album, due to be released in the first half of October.

Recording a string trio, concerts and more

We did a lot of recording and mixing for our new album last month. One of the things that we recorded was a string trio, for a ballad that will be released on the album. Watch the pictures and/or a one minute live recording here. And there is more. First of all, we’re looking forward to our next livestream concert, on the Dutch Composers Day (in Dutch: Dag van de Componist), on the 18th of June. On top of that it’s just confirmed that we’ll also play live on the Knapsack Festival in collaboration with Gluren bij de Buren in July in Delft. Our brand new album is due to be released in September this year. Speaking of which…. last Sunday was the release party of the beautiful ‘Cancelled’ book, a book with pictures of and interviews with Dutch artists like Francis van Broekhuizen, Trijntje Oosterhuis, Michael Varekamp, Simone Kleinsma, Karin Bloemen and many more. And us.

Something else. Petra, our singer, will give vocal coaching sessions during the Summer Music Academy in the beautiful mountains of Transsylvania, near the famous castle of count Dracula. If you’re interested, visit the website of the Summer Music Academy or go to their Facebook page.

Recordings, concerts and a book

Chabliz gave two concerts last month, one of them on the Gluren-bij-de-Buren festival. You can see the pictures here. We are also working on the last recordings and mixes for our new album, some of them together with guest-musicians. A few of the pictures are here. And there is more. Finally the book ‘Cancelled,‘ with pictures of Dutch artists during corona, is available in the bookshops now! It’s a beautiful book with photographs of several famous Dutch singers, musicians and dancers. Chabliz is one of the photographed and interviewed artists in this book. The release of the new Chabliz album is expected this summer and Chabliz will be giving more concerts in the coming months. Did you miss our previous livestream concert? You can watch it here:

In the studio

Chabliz spends time recording, mixing and mastering again in the studio, working on the new album. Soon we’ll record a few songs with guest musicians: a violinist, cellist, a viola player and a clarinetist. We’ll give a few concerts again. Check our concert dates for more info. Our next livestream concert will be on Sunday evening March the 20th, live on our YouTube channel (8:30 PM CET). Two weeks later we’ll play live on the Gluren bij de Buren festival.
