Sometimes dreams do come true

When I was younger I grew up with reading NME and it was always exciting to go down to the shop to grab a copy and learn about new music. Today they are actually writing about my new album, and it feels a bit unreal. Year Of The Flesh is picked as one of this months best releases! They wrote things such as:

"sumptuous… so joyous it’d bring a grin to even the most dedicated of grouch’s face".

And what do you know. This is also the world premiere of our new video for In The Seine, which came into being with help from this incredible community. It’s very hard to explain the gratitude we’re feeling right now. 

Check it out friends! http://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/september-2014-nme-writers-choose-their-favourite-new-music-of-the-month

Thank you Denmark - Hello Germany

What a wonderful run of shows. Thanks so much to Broken Twin for taking me along. It was a profound honor, and I already miss you guys and seeing you live every night. Thanks very much to the venues we visited, and especially the wonderful audiences. I felt incredibly welcome, and as a support act that’s more than I can ask for.

So - I have a little break before continuing on tour with my great friends and awesome band Honig. It’s going to be wonderful to travel with them and support them in Germany. After that I take the band along to do a series of UK dates, alongside Mimas, which is my other band. Here are the upcoming dates:

New website! ‘Peers’ + B-side ‘Filter Bubble’ out now!

Hi friends!

I’m on a train heading to Odense, DK for my first support show with Broken Twin at Dexter. Yay! 

We’ve just released ‘Peers’ and a little B-side along with it called Filter Bubble. Grab it out at iTunes and Bandcamp or stream them at SoundCloud, Spotify, WiMP etc.

As you might have noticed we have a beautiful new website at www.dadrocksmusic.com - and there’s a nice little story behind this. Some time ago, with my limited skills in internet architecture, I created a website with a tool called Wix. It’s a service you pay for annually , as it’s very easy to use. A listener of Dad Rocks!, and a contributor to both Mount Remix and Year Of The Fan, noticed this and offered to build us a whole new website for free (also ‘cause mine was pretty shit). I was baffled, but it was too great an offer to reject. This is what he did, and I’m extremely happy with the result. I’ve promised to write him a song for his efforts. Thank you ever so much, Daniel J. Harvey. You are rad. Oh! And he plays in a fantastic band called Olympians. So check them out too!

Big love,
Snævar

Dad Rocks! announced to play Les Transmusicales de Rennes!

Damn.

I would never have guessed that at some point we would be invited to play one of the most important musical events in Europe. However, this is actually happening, and we’ve now been announced to play Les Transmusicales in Rennes, FR. With over 60.000 visitors last year, we’re hoping to make a couple of new fans.

Nous sommes très heureux!

Supporting Broken Twin in Denmark + Festival added in Norway

Hello!

I’m exceptionally happy to announce that I’ve been handpicked by the amazing danish artist Broken Twin, aka the lovely Majke Voss Romme. She recently made one of the best danish albums recently called ‘May’. Check out the beautiful ‘Sun Has Gone' below. I'll be heading out solo to support Broken Twin for five shows in Denmark, and I'll be premiering a couple of new songs too.

Dad Rocks! is also heading to Norway for the FIRST time ever to perform with a full band. This will be taking place during the Sørveiv Festival in Kristiansand on November 7th.

Now, go discover Broken Twin, and check out the dates below!
