We will play this song live in the Netherlands (May/June) and during our South American Ghost Ride Tour. We thought it would be nice if you people already know the song a bit so you can sing with us. We hope you will like it as much as we do. We think we made something really special. On top of this, our friend Marcus Moonen is also busy with a videoclip (or short movie). We let you know when it's finished. In the mean time, enjoy! (and yes, it's totally for free! )"

The band added the following: "We have some new South American tour dates for you. Yes, we will play in Colombia and Peru for the very, very first time ever in our history! We are still negotiating to add some more South American gigs, so don't worry too much if your country is not on the list yet. We are looking forward to see you all!"

Vocalist Silje Wergeland has issued the following update on behalf of The Gathering:
"As I write this a little storm is coming in over Holland. It has been some amazing summer days here, and now it seems like Thor (or Tor as we say) is riding across the sky with his hammer smashing clouds. We are having a BBQ so fingers crossed he is off for some sleep or go for some mjød soon!
Saturday we played in Roermond for the first time. The nice people behind Rockschool Open Air put up this festival for the first time and had no one less than their major and people from the local government attending. All festivals needs some time to establish, and there are always a few hiccups here and there. This year someone - I think he has a Norse origin - were a bit too enthusiastic behind his drum kit kicking through the bass-drum skin (how metal is that!). It took some time to get a new one, so the sets of the bands later had to be cut a bit short. We had a nice time there though, and especially for me meeting up with the Bergeners of Batallion. If you have ever met anyone from Norway, you know the Viking way of drinking. There were no exceptions Saturday...
Dutch metallers The Gathering have issued the following update on their MySpace blog:
We want to thank all you nice people that has supported and followed us through 2009; a very exciting year for us here in The Gathering.
We are truly grateful and it means a lot to us that we had such a nice response on The West Pole and the new line up of The Gathering! We are very much looking forward to another eventful year with touring lots of countries and meeting many of you friends and fans playing and sharing our common interest: music.
When all the snow came down here before Christmas we used the opportunity to enjoy it making a brand new little video for "No Bird Call". You can see it here."
The Gathering drummer Hans Rutten has issued the following update about the band's 20th Anniversary plans:
"I am proud to announce the first dates for our upcoming The West Pole/20th Anniversary European Tour (Jan/Febr. 2010). Please note there will be more gigs added this tour. We are still working on a couple of Greek dates too, as well as a South American tour and some more club gigs in The Netherlands.
As you might know Marjolein will not be able to play with us the first week. Old bandmember Hugo Prinsen Geerligs will join us on stage, after 6 years! So these gigs will me memorable for sure! Hugo will join us from Krefeld untill Bratislava, Marjolein will be on stage again in Budapest untill the end.We are thrilled and excited and we hope the same goes for you!"
"All You Are", the new video from Dutch metallers The Gathering, has been made available online. According to the band, the video contains lots of live images shot at Graspop Metal Meeting 2009 festival.
"All You Are" comes off the band's latest album, entitled "The West Pole", which was released in Europe on May 4, 2009 via Psychonaut Records.
Drummer Hans Rutten of The Gathering has posted the following update on the band's website:
"First of all: we will do a couple of try out gigs before we start the festival season. We will play in Heerlen and Purmerend, both located in The Netherlands. Please note these are try-out gigs. Things will go wrong. But that's also the fun part, we just play and we will see what happens! Both evenings will be a lot of fun for sure.
Today we received "The West Pole" vinyl test pressing. As we are living in a digital world I forgot the sound of a black 12 inch on a turntable. It is incredible! The sound is so much warmer, rounder, the high tones are crispy, bass sounds so creamy... Well I can go on for a while, but above all be sure you grab a copy of "The West Pole" on vinyl before they cost 200 dollar on eBay! Btw, it is a double album, 180 grams, specially remastered for vinyl, and with a different running order. Still available at our webshop, but we will only make 500 copies (limited), and they go faaast."
Dutch metallers The Gathering have issued the following update:
Yes, finally we are back! Fresh new start, brand new homepage, new songs ("All You Are", "Treasure" and "The West Pole") on our revamped MySpace, and you can order great packages at our webshop right now!
But first of all I like to announce Silje Wergeland as our new vocalist! Silje has been the singer of the Norwegian band Octavia Sperati for 8 years including several other projects. She did a superb job, as you can hear on our MySpace and new Gathering album "The West Pole". More info about Silje soon. This album also includes two very talented guest singers: the Dutch Anne van den Hoogen and Mexican Marcela Bovio (from Stream Of Passion), and some other guest musicians.
Drummer Hans Rutten of the Dutch metal/rock band The Gathering has issued the following update:
"The waiting is over. Well... almost!
We are very happy and proud to announce the release of our 9th studio album in April 2009! The album will be called "The West Pole". You probably are curious who is singing on our new record. We have found a new vocalist, and we will have two guest singers on "The West Pole".
We can imagine people are anxious to hear some of our new music. However, we will not make it to put new songs online this year. The reason is that some of our guest musicians still need to be recorded and we prefer to present only complete version of the songs. As soon as we have mixed and mastered the album we will put some tracks on the web and of course you will be informed with all possible details. We believe, after hearing the new songs, you will agree the waiting was worthwhile!
The Gathering have posted an update on their official website's forum about the new material they are currently working on.
Sorry it has been a while since you've heard from us. We apologize for this. It actually means that we have been really busy with the band. During the last couple of months we created a lot of new ideas that lead to the first songs of our upcoming CD. Yes, we are working on a new album! Or actually, two new albums! Many of our new songs are very rock and guitar orientated and will end up on a heavy rock album for sure. The second album will be filled with more 'shoe gaze', dreamy tracks.
We can imagine if you are very curious about new vocalists. Currently, we are working with several. It feels very refreshing and interesting to work with different voices and it adds beautiful new colours to our music. Names will be presented as soon as our ideas become more concrete. As promised you will hear new material by the end of this year. The release of our new album is planned for Spring 2009.
