Almost two and a half years after the release of his successful album ‘Promises Of No Man’s Land’, Blaudzun returns with his new album ‘Jupiter’. His fifth full-length release, ‘Jupiter’ will be an album in three parts. Blaudzun explains: “My new album is a tryptich; a collection of songs released in three separate parts. These parts will be recorded at different times and studios. It’s really a work in progress, and that’s how it’ll stay until the final part has been released. Part I is now finished, but parts II and III are still in the works.”
Blaudzun received a gold record for his third album ‘Heavy Flowers’ in the Netherlands; follow up ‘Promises of No Man’s Land’ reached the #1 position in the Album Charts.
The band played several European festivals like Hurricane and Southside Festival (Ger), Bravalla (Swe), Rock Werchter and Pukkelpop (Be) and Lowlands and Pinkpop (NL), as well as CMJ and SXSW in the USA.
Indie rock singer Johannes Sigmond goes by the name of Blaudzun, who broke through in the Benelux and beyond with his widely acclaimed third album ‘Heavy Flowers’. This release was followed by two successful years of sold out club tours in both the Netherlands and Belgium, playing at the big festivals and winning many awards such as the Dutch Public Broadcasting Award for Best Album of the Year 2012, an Edison for Best Male Artist at the Dutch Edison Awards (Dutch Grammys) and an award for Best Alternative Act at 3FM (Dutch national radio).
His latest album ‘Promises Of No Man’s Land’ was released by V2 Benelux (Benelux & World) and Glitterhouse Records (Germany, Swiss, Austria) on March 7, 2014. The album enters the Dutch Album top 100 at no 1 and in Belgium charts at no 6. What followed was one big European tour of 1,5 year including shows at festivals like Lowlands, Down The Rabbit Hole, Southside/Hurricane, Deichbrand, Pukkelpop, Rock Werchter, Zurich Open Air and many many more!
