Dutch vocalist Anneke Van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering) joined Devin Townsend Project on stage at their March 10th show at Melkweg in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Fan-filmed footage from the performance can be seen below:

In 2016, renowned Dutch vocalist Anneke van Giersbergen announced the formation of a brand new progressive metal band under the name of VUUR. The band now offers a glimpse into the recording process of their debut album at Sandlane Recording Facilities in Rijen, the Netherlands.

VUUR's debut full length is due in the fall of this year. Watch the behind-the scenes-video below:

In the video, Anneke reveals that the lyrical content of the album is inspired by the many cities she has visited while being on the road.

Anneke comments: "For a long time I've wanted to make a kind of concept album about the cities we've visited, because we tour so much and see so many countries and cities.  I often have a strong feeling for a city. It can be anything - sometimes I visualize a city as a man or a character, or sometimes something happened in that city and I want to write about that."

The first confirmed tour dates are as follows:

June
9 - Neushoorn (warm-up show) - Leeuwarden, Netherlands
30 - Tuska Open Air - Helsinki, Finland

July
14 - Masters of Rock - Vizovice, Czech Republic
15 - Dynamo Metal Fest - Eindhoven, Netherlands

VUUR lineup:

Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering) - lead vocals
Ed Warby (Hail of Bullets, Ayreon, ex-Gorefest) - drums
Jord Otto (My Propane, ex-ReVamp) - guitars
Ferry Duijsens - guitars
Johan van Stratum (Stream of Passion) - bass
