Dear everyone,

This Leo Sunrise will be on hiatus for a while.

This spring, summer and a bit of fall we will all be focusing on other things in life.
Please check in here for news by the end of the year.



A good tour...

The tour was great. You may want to read up on our tour adventures here and some pretty pictures of the show in Sarreguemines can be found here on Flickr or Facebook and some more can be found here too. Thank you so much Zippo and Emmanuel for sharing these pictures with us!



So, a new year has started! In 2012 we did many special things. Some highlights:

  • We’ve supported Bonnie Prince Billy in Tivoli, NL
  • We’ve recorded our fourth record “Spoken”.
  • We played our first Spoken set at Kargadoor.
  • We’ve done our first international tours (Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Germany).
  • We played a beautiful LP release show at dB’s.

We are grateful to so many people for helping us and supporting us. Special thanks to Paul Zwetsloot for helping us with so much. And to Maarten Houwer for good sound and spirit when he is there when we play.

This January, we will play shows in Germany and France to promote ‘Spoken’ and try out new songs. We hope to see you soon.
