Maison du Malheur's "Stomping Ground" out October 30th via V2 Records09-09-2015
Maison du Malheur's brand new album "Stomping Ground" will be out October 30th on V2 Records and from November onwards the band will be performing throughout The Netherlands. This time they'll be taking two supports: Rob Heron & The Tea Pad Orchestra * from the UK and Tiny Legs Tim º from Belgium. Find all tourdates below!
Unstoppable, unbeatable, not to be labeled, not to market and barely manageable: burn your life jacket, forget the safety belts, throw out your helmet and hold tight: Maison du Malheur are back. A surging musical brothel, populated by razor-sharp horns, a superior guitarist, a coal stoker of a drummer and a world-class brother pianist. Led by a captain who often is amazed what revs his crew pull again, to agree quickly while grinning. Frontman JP Mesker has a record collection that runs from Louis Armstrong via Tom Waits to Nick Cave. He started Maison du Malheur in 2011 as singer-songwriter. Within four year his ‘project’ has become an eight-man orchestra, have sold thousands of albums (“Waiting For Trouble To Come“, “Wicked Transmission“), played hundreds of flaming appearances (totally more than a hundred thousand enthusiastic spectators) and did a well-paying beer commercial.
Maison du Malheur celebrate every performance as if it is a jubilee. With irrepressible eagerness they mount each stage, to plug and go! They love to quickly start a sanctuary: a rock ‘n’ roll hangout for the damned and wanderers, for outsiders and insiders, for adventures and other oddballs. And yes, that’s dynamic and energetic and sometimes dangerously close to the precipice. But that’s the power of Maison du Malheur: playing live, create music with breath in it, and claim a place in the universe together with the audience. And that’s not about money, fame or the latest phone. It’s about life. Life until your drop.
