THE GATHERING have commented about the recently announced one-off headlining show in New York City and their upcoming live CD and DVD, A Noise Severe.
Drummer Hans Rutten posts, “Dear all! We are going to do a one off special headlining show in New York city before we support our friends from LACUNA COIL for a mere two weeks! We are looking forward to come to the USA and Canada again. Hope to see you all somewhere! We just finished our tour in South America with the recordings of our live DVD and CD, and they went very, very well. We recorded in front of 4,000 totally crazy Chileans! It was one of the biggest highlights of the band’s career, and what makes it even more special is that we were able to capture this vibe on DVD. It will be called A Noise Severe, and a noise severe it was, with the audience alone hitting 104 db several times without the band playing!”
A Noise Severe is the follow-up to the well-received 2005 DVD, A Sound Relief.
