DNMF Album announcement

The DNMF debut album will be out September 11th on Moving Furniture Records.


Nice little announcement just before the summer break!
The debut album will come out later this year.

DNMF is a 3-headed monstrosity from the Netherlands consisting of Rutger Zuydervelt (aka Machinefabriek) and Otto Kokke & René Aquarius (aka Dead Neanderthals). Drawing energy from ancient cosmic entities, they have managed to record an album that sounds like nothing you could imagine.

UK Aftermath summary

As we said before: this UK tour with Colin Webster was amazing! Huge thanks to all the promoters, venues, and everyone who came to see us. Last week, a lot of stuff popped up on the internet, so we thought it would be cool to put all that stuff in one blog post. Here goes!

After our first show in Manchester, we drove to Macclesfield to do a short version of our set in Sam Andreae’s ultra-small basement. The whole thing was filmed by Angela Guyton and here’s the result:

And if that wasn’t enough, the 3rd show of the tour (Sheffield) was filmed in its entirety:

And last but not least, the Ears for Eyes blog wrote a great review of our London show:

“They unrelentingly delivered a torrent of sound that suggested the missing link between John Coltrane’s ‘Ascension’ and the experience of pulping your head in a blender”

All in all, pretty good! Hope to see you again in the near future!
