WE announces tourdates in Germany and Denmark to back up their recent outing, the fabolous Tension & Release.

After a successful string of norwegian shows in february and march, WE continue the tour in Denmark and Germany. “Being able to play clubs as a headliner with our 120 minute set for the germans and danes is really something WE look forward to. The last years have been big venues as support for other bands, and WE really dont fit a 40 minute slot.It is 5 years since WE did a headliner tour in Europe, it was backing up Dinosauric Futurobic in 2003″, recalls leadsinger Thomas Felberg. Unlock your daughters cause WE is comin to town, spacerock guaranteed.

Vocalist Thomas Felberg commented on upcoming album recently; “This album brings you the most comprehensive WE tracks ever, they seem like a dash of Can, a pinch of Neu, Beggars Banquet style Stones shaken up with Beatles harmonies and a real dose of Van Halen 78-84, and…. the good old Sab/Zep as always”.
The rest of the band just left Hangaroundsounds pale leaving no comments. Don Dons (guitars, FX) never showed up, as he still is twiddling the knobs to finish the upcoming monsteralbum that is entitled; Tension & Release.
