28-02 HOMEWARD IS TAKING A BREAK
We’ve got some sad news. Unfortunately our drummer Niels decided to stop with Homeward due to some private matters where he had to choose for priorities in life.
We wish him all the best and luck in the world, mainly cause he is one of our best friends.
We like to thank him for all the experiences we’ve shared, all the effort he put in the music, shows but mainly the connection we’ve had.
After this we decided to take a long break, to write new music and to find our own new path, our new goal. We as Homeward came to the conclusion that unfortunately, Nouri doesn’t fit in that picture.
This means we have to cancel all of our shows, more information about bands filling in on our spot will soon follow.
We also have to cancel our tour with To Heaven Earth Is Hell, and our replacement will be 18 Miles.
These guys are insane live and are one of the best bands in Holland and just released their new cd Darker Times!
Check them out on our tour, none of these shows will be cancelled.
This doesn’t mean we stopped as a band, Homeward will be back when we are ready.
In the mean time, we will be searching for new musicians.
Maurice, Elmer and Jeroen."
