Paceshifters and Wallace Vanborn
Sun Jun 16 @ 7.30 pm - 11.00 pm
No compromises or concessions for Paul, Seb and Jesper not musically or whatever. These three maverick rockers are aiming for a long term career which means for them being loyal to their stubborn, take it or leave it, mentality. Which is already showcased by their former albums with which the trio transformed from a young enthusiastic band to a band worthy of competing in the major league of rock. In those years they toured endlessly taking them from the biggest Dutch festivals like Zwarte Cross and Pinkpop to the biggest festivals in Europe such as Exit, Rock for People, Woodstock (Poland), Groezrock and even SXSW in the US. But like they say that is all just history now. The band is aiming at 2018 and beyond. With a mission statement set in concrete: Amaze their audiences by dragging them in and overtake them! Which is what they do with their already well know PACESHIFTERS trademarked shows of Power, Energy and above all visible fun. In the beginning of 2019 they partner up with the Belgium heroes of Wallace Vanborn to release a 10 inch Split. With two brand new songs from each band.
Since its inception with “Free Blank Shots” in 2010 Wallace Vanborn grew to be one of the staples of the Belgian Rock scene. Known mostly for their mixture of heavy guitars and catchy hooks, Ian Clement, Sylvester Vanborm and Dries Hoof have provided the landscape with 10 years worth of sound.
While songs like “Atom Juggler”, “Found In L.A.”, “Cougars”, “We Are What We Hide” and “Vampires (Big Drain)” raided the airwaves, they’ve played more than 400 shows throughout Europe and the USA.
The band recorded with the likes of David Botrill (known for his work with Muse, Placebo, Tool) who produced their second album “Lions, Liars, Guns and God” in 2012 and Chris Goss (known for his work with Queens Of The Stone Age, Mark Lanegan & UNKLE) who produced their third album “The Orb We Absorb” in 2014.
So… if a three piece rock band is all you need… how about two?
When Seb Dokman (Paceshifters) invited Wallace Vanborn to play at his “These Go To Eleven” festival a friendship quickly grew. Seb sent out the invite for a split release and three times three handshakes later the bands are ready to hit the road together for a select lineup of venues.
Let it be known: Wallace Vanborn (BE) are slowly clawing back out of hibernation and will be releasing a split 10 inch with Paceshifters (NL) this year for record store day.
