At The Crack Of Dawn – the fourth full-length album from the hard rocking, Dutch three-piece – will be released via Ván Records this October. The title track has been given the a visual accompaniment thanks to the direction skills of Jérome Siegelaer (Selim Lemouchi & His Enemies, Enslaved). Jerome is well known for capturing the natural beauty of nature in his visual art, and does exactly that in this latest video.
“When you work with a real artist like Jérome Siegelaer, you get the best result when you surrender to his creative mind. For this video he took us to his natural habitat, that is heathlands and forests, for a mini adventure. It was a very easy to lose yourself in this breathtaking environment. The highlight at the crack of dawn, with the rising of the sun, was a true spiritual experience.”
WATCH AT THE CRACK OF DAWN:
Having spent the last few years conquering European festivals (Graspop, Hellfest, Bloodstock…), triumphing in support slots for Steel Panther, Judas Priest and Ozzy Osbourne, making a dent in the Dutch album charts, hitting the road with Saxon, playing as far afield as Beijing, and appearing on Dutch national TV and radio, VANDERBUYST had a lot to draw on when it came to writing album number four. Their experience so far has been a whirlwind of kinetic energy and high powered rock.
To best capture their live force, tight songwriting and heavy riffs, they enlisted producer Martin Furia. To put the finishing touches to their creation, the album was sent to the world famous Sterling Sound studio to be mixed; if it’s good enough for Guns ‘n’ Roses and AC/DC then it’s perfect for VANDERBUYST.
At The Crack Of Dawn sees VANDERBUYST rejuvenated, invigorated and ready to continue conquering Europe and beyond. A handful of live dates have already been announced in support of the album. Guitarist, Willem, commented “This album feels really good, like a puzzle everything fits. Sound and songs connect in a powerful way. Can wait to see the reactions live.”
