Live dates

In-store show at Planet of Sound (Enschede, NL)

Record store Planet of Sound in Enschede has been selling our CDs for a while. On Thursday October 13th it’s time for us to make a live appearance in this cozy independent shop, that actually has a small stage inside it! The address is Haverstraatpassage 68 in Enschede (NL) and we’ll start around 20:00. We hope to see you there!

Live synth player wanted!

We’re looking for a third live band member for playing mainly our lead synth parts.

Qualities we look for:

  • Time and motivation to rehearse in the Enschede area once every two weeks and play live once every month (on average)
  • In it for the enjoyment of playing music
  • Good communication and time management skills
  • Respectful attitude toward other people in the music scene
  • Charismatic stage presence
  • In possession of your own hardware (preferred) and/or software synthesizer(s) and capable of programming the appropriate sounds
  • Having your own transportation
  • Preferably located in the east of The Netherlands or the MĂĽnsterland area, although you’re welcome to fly to the rehearsals and gigs from anywhere in the world

The Hague show cancelled :-(

We very strongly regret having to cancel tonight’s show at Gotikus Industrialis #9 in The Hague. Influenza and a severe cold have left such a mark on Gijs’ voice that we’re unable to deliver a concert of the quality that we strive for and that we think the audience deserves. We hope that you will dance your frustration away on the beats of X.donamical and the three fantastic DJs!

Bowie cover

Heliophile had the priviledge of performing at the Bowie Sound and Vision event in Metropool, Hengelo (NL), where several artists from The Netherlands celebrated David Bowie’s art by playing several cover songs. It was a big success for the band! Here’s a recording of one of the cover songs, ‘Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)’, with our electro interpretation.

New single ‘Towers so Tall’ out on October 23rd!

Having spent some time writing the first full-length Heliophile album in relative silence, it’s time to reveal some of the new material. The new single ‘Towers so Tall’ will have a B-side called ‘Satellite’ and the two tracks will be available on digital distribution channels from October 23rd.
