First Show 2014 / US Tour Video

After almost six months of silence we will play our first show for this year
@Rote Flora - Hamburg ! This will be the first one with Mike on drums and we can't wait for it !
More shows are in the making and some great tours are planned for summer !
We will let you know as soon as things are confirmed !

26.04. Hamburg - Rote Flora

---
It took us some time but we finally managed to finish our little video
about our recent US tour when we toured the country with our buddies Black Table !
Always a pleasure to spend some time with those guys !

Besides all of those nice memories it's about time to look ahead - we are officially
starting with the songwriting for a new record next week !
Exciting times are coming up !

New Drummer

We are very happy to announce that our good friend Michael Kadnar
from New York will be the new face behind the drums of Downfall of Gaia
and all of us couldn't be more excited to have him on board!

We got to know Mike on our last tour through the United States
with his other band Black Table and the chemistry just felt right!
Around that time we had no idea that we will meet up again so soon!
It might sound weird to some people to add a drummer from New York to a band
that's based in Germany, but for us it feels like the right and best decision!
Plans for 2014 have been made and the flights have been booked!
Some amazing stuff is coming up in the next couple of months and
we are looking forward to a new chapter!

The songwriting for a new record will start in a few weeks
and a new record can be expected for later this year!
