A big thank you to every single person who ever came to one of our shows or helped me in any way at all to make all shows I did amazing and memorable.''

11-09 Updates, events and farewells

As some of you might have heard over the last few weeks, Patrick has decided to part ways with Crawl Back Bookings. As the founding member of this agency, Patrick has been instrumental in making Crawl Back the agency it is today. Over the years, Patrick has made himself into someone who would give everything for Crawl Back, and that has taken its toll. With his new agency Harbor, Patrick is determined to manage his time more efficiently. Although Patrick is leaving Crawl Back, we still hold him as a great friend and can't thank him enough for the chances he has given us in the past and the trust he places in us for continuing with the brand.

Crawl Back Bookings will go on and will cooperate with Harbor when we can. We have never been an agency that wanted to compete with other bookers & promoters in the Netherlands, and we are not going to change that now. In addition we've added a buttload of new events to our website, check it out!

Patrick, thank you for everything! 
Elmer, David, Mitchel & Mark

28-02   HOMEWARD IS TAKING A BREAK

"Hey guys,

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 b
est 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.

With love,
Maurice, Elmer and Jeroen."
