Raymond quits Equisa

Raymond Otterspeer is no longer Equisa’s drummer. We’ve had some great memorable moments in the nearly 4 years since he joined the band and we wish him all the best with his current and future musical projects.

Although Raymond won’t be there, our gig on the 15th is still on! Stefan Maas (5150, Hitherside, Anger of Man and many more) will sit behind the kit next sunday.

Massive update!

Last night during Massive Prog Radio we revealed a lot of new details of The Big Shift including the preview of the song “Ditching Fear”!

So what’s new:

-Pre-orders for The Big Shift start on November 9th 2015.
-You can also get a physical copy of Artificial Memories, only available when pre-ordering The Big Shift!

The release date is set on January 24th 2016 and will be celebrated with a release party at ‘t Blok in Nieuwekerk a/d IJssel with my first ever live performance with my solo music!

We’re going live!!

Oh yes we are!

From the release party of ‘The Big Shift’ on I’ll be hitting the stage with my personal back-up band to support the album!

Today I sat around with Stefan Maas (5150, Hitherside and many more projects) to walk through all the drumparts. Here’s a fantastically sharp action-picture:
