My Baby: Prehistoric Rhythm

Amsterdam band My Baby are set to release their highly anticipated new album ‘Prehistoric Rhythm” on April 7th, 2017. Whilst their previous album was awarded with a prestigious ‘Edison Award’ for Best Alternative Album, the band takes it a few steps further with their new record and tells us everything will come together during their upcoming club tour. SEEN has heard “Love Dance” from the new album, and can attest to its hypnotic quality. The gigs are certain to be a riot.

With their new album, My Baby tries to create a theatrical and poetic world in which spiritual reflection is the order of the day. Singer Cato van Dijck says, “In these times of turmoil and this busy and ongoing society that we live in, humankind is searching for a new way to go back to their primal awareness. We want to take the audience on a Shamanic inspired musical journey you have never seen before.”

With their album release show in Amsterdam, My Baby is starting a European tour that brings the band to 5 countries, kicking off in Newcastle in the UK:

03.04 Newcastle Think Tank
04.04 Glasgow King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut
05.04 Manchester Deaf Institute
07.04 Birmingham Sunflower Lounge
08.04 Leeds Brundenell Social Club
09.04 Bristol The Fleece
10.04 London Oslo Hackney
11.04 Bedford Esquires

In December 2013, they released their debut album “Loves Voodoo!” and thus started to spread their magical hypnotic voodoo blues beats all around the world – in 2014, the band played gigs at Eurosonic and toured the UK and New Zealand. In the summer of 2015 they toured Europe non-stop to promote their second album “Shamanaid” – playing seven alternative stages at Glastonbury 2015, plus they were chosen by Seasick Steve as the opening act on his April 2015 UK tour. In 2016, My Baby won an Edison Pop Award, a prestigious music award in The Netherlands, for their album “Shamanaid”, and played a headline tour in the UK.
