Belgian cult band Dead Man Ray makes the most unexpected comeback of the year
Without a doubt the most surprising comeback of the year: Dead Man Ray! The masterful musical union of Daan Stuyven and Rudy Trouvé (ex-dEUS) that caused a furor at the end of the '90s. They debuted in 1998 with the album ‘Berchem’ that brought forth cult hits like ‘Chemical’ and ‘Copy of '78’ and also catapulted them right onto the stage of Rock Werchter. They even recorded their third – and last - album ‘Cago’ with master producer Steve Albini in his hometown Chicago. After a 16-year silence, DMR is suddenly back. And in no small way! With an EP (‘EEN’), an album (expected in March 2019) and – our concert heart is instantly alert – back on stage!
AB fun fact Dead Man Ray once (1999) provided the soundtrack to ‘Café Zonder Bier’ by Bobbejaan Schoepen, opened gloriously for Interpol (2003) and played at the inauguration of our AB BOX in 2002.
