Dool Announce Feb. 17 Release for Here Now, There Then


I felt pretty gosh darn fortunate to have caught an early afternoon set from Rotterdam dark heavy rockers Dool this past April at Roadburn (review here), and have considered them ever since the best surprise I encountered at that fest this year. As one will after that kind of first impression is made, I’ve been trying to keep an eye out for new of their releasing a debut album, and wouldn’t you know, the date is set. On Feb. 17, 2017, Dool will issue Here Now, There Then through no less an imprint than Prophecy Productions, whose tastes for things bleakly atmospheric and/or mooody is largely unimpeachable. There’s even a new song streaming now called “She Goat,” if you’d like to have your day made.

Full announcement from the band follows here, complete with artwork and tour dates, because that’s how it should be.

Looking forward to this one:

Whichever way one chooses to use it. It is the shadowlands between fantasy and reality. A lucid fairy tale set against a concrete background.
