Freia Music has new releases planned for the coming months….
Cold Steel [remastered & expanded] – Cliffhanger
Freia Music will be re-releasing the 1995 debut-album ‘Cold Steel’ of the Dutch band Cliffhanger. This original recording is remastered and we have added 11 until now unreleased tracks from the same era. The ‘remastered & expanded’ version will be available in a luxury 2CD twofold digipak complete with new artwork and linenotes.
Cliffhanger was formed in 1993 and released 4 albums between 1995 and 2001. They built up a good trackrecord especially in Europe and did quite some touring in the Netherlands and Belgium. The band split up in 2011 but did work together on the NovoX-project.
After the dissolvement of the band all members have been talking about a reunion but this is impossible due to other engagements. The only active member of the band in the scene is Gijs Koopmans. After having played for Knight area for over 10 years he recently teamed up with Ulysses.
The release is planned end April/early May 2013.
Next to ‘Cold Steel’ we also have the ‘DugOut Alive’ DVD available with one of the bands last concerts on video and over 10 hours of music available.

Done With The Coldness – TumbleTown
TumbleTown is a renewed collaboration between guitarist/producer Aldo Adema (Egdon heath, Seven Day Hunt, Silhouette) and singer-songwriter Han Uil (Seven Day Hunt, Han Uil solo). After their succesfull cooperation in Seven Day Hunt the two of them decided to start working on a joint effort. Based on the songs of Han the two of them added the influences of Aldo’s distinctive style to produce an album that is a brilliant mix between progressive and mainstream rock. Most of the instruments are played by the two but there are somecameo appearances such Erik Laan (Silhouette) on keyboards.
TumbleTown is a studioband and currently there are no plans to perform live.
As a preview of the album the band recorded a videoclip of one of the songs on the album; The End of Hyde:

The new album ’1.000 WISHES’ by PBII is a special collaboration ith the Hofstad Youth Orchestra. Together they combine their forces to create a true rockopera, based on the book ‘Eric and the land of 1.000 wishes’. They story is abou the fight of the young boy against the terrible disease cancer. Not surprising all net proceeds of the band go to the Dutch children cancerfund KiKa.
