Release show for first album under the name STAKE
More than a decade ago, 4 pubeless brats began making music in a small rehearsal room in Flanders’ Fields. They had never dreamed that the din that they then made under the name Steak Number Eight would go so far. From selling out the biggest concert venues in Belgium, appearing at the biggest metal festivals of Europe, to heading out on tour with bands like Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Alice Cooper and Deftones… they’ve done it all.
So nobody saw it coming when the band stopped in 2018. The band name began to feel a bit dated and too often reminded them of frontman Brent’s deceased brother. There were 2 more hopelessly sold-out farewell shows in the Vooruit, but they have turned out to not entirely be the last… the 4 band members remain together and continue under the name STAKE.
It is under this name that they will release their first album in November, and come to present it live-and-exclusive in AB. Expect the same loud, moody post-metal and sludge-metal, but then with an unprecedented renewed energy!

Fun fact In an interview with Humo, the band recently promised to stop destroying dressing rooms... We‘re not entirely convinced though!
