The Gathering : hiatus et départ de Marjolein (basse)

17 Jan 14 The Gathering : hiatus et départ de Marjolein (basse)

Le groupe annonce ce jour prendre une pause. Aucun split n’est évoqué mais un temps de réflexion sur la manière de construire un avenir pour le groupe. Au bout de vingt-cinq ans de travail et un récent planning de tournée conséquent, il semble venu le temps de faire un point… d’autant plus que la bassiste Marjolein a décidé de se consacrer à d’autres projets personnels (cf. reproduction in extenso de son communiqué ci-dessous), sans qu’il soit nullement question de problèmes personnels entre les membres.
Les prochains shows planifiés pour The Gathering seront donc les derniers avec Marjolein (dates programmées à Nijmegen et Dordrecht).

Communiqué de Marjolein

Dear fans & friends of The Gathering, I have something to tell you, because after quite some time of thinking I have decided to leave The Gathering. The ten years with The Gathering have been a great experience for me and a dream come true. Making music, traveling all over the world and meeting wonderful people everywhere: I am very thankful and happy to have been a part of this. But in this life things change, and that’s a good thing. Life is never boring. I feel it’s time for me to move on and focus on new things. Also musically. So, with this backpack full of great memories I look forward to what the future will bring. The open road is inspiring, I guess that’s the beauty of uncertainty. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank everybody for their love and support throughout the years. I’m looking forward to play two intense final shows in Nijmegen and Dordrecht & hope more good music and experiences will follow. Until we meet again! Lots of love – Marjolein
