‘About An Author’ To Play ‘Brainstorm Festival’ This Weekend


About An AythorThe German Post-Hardcore band About an Author is added to the line-up for Brainstorm Festival. They will replace Benea Reach from Norway, who cancelled their show a few days ago.

The annual 2 day festival will be held this weekend [November 1 & 2] in the Gigant, Apeldoorn, the Netherlands. The time-schedule can be viewed below.

About An Author is a post-hardcore band from Augsburg/Germany. After touring with US-Bands like “Spoken” and “Write this down” they are now preparing their upcoming record, which will be released early 2014.“We’ve evolved musically and packed our ideas and experiences into our songs,” Robin said in an interview. The result is a varied game of mosh parts, accompanied by Scream and emotional vocals, combined with quiet melodies. Awards, experiences with various bands and other projects as well as their new style have brought robin, andi, ralph, vali & benny together. AAA stands for positive views, which are also reflected lyrically in their songs and show stories can have a happy ending.


In total 15 bands will be featured mainstage, plus several extra shows will take place in the theater of the festival like singer-songwriter Rachel Louise [NL]. Also in here all of the audience can join the grunt-version of the King’s Song [‘Koningslied’] to hail the new King of The Netherlands in the most brutal way possible!

And there is more! Like every year an exposition is present, as well as a metal-market. Brainstorm Festival takes place on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 November 2013 in club Gigant in city Apeldoorn, The Netherlands.

Brainstorm Festival was formed in the beginning of 2008 with a clear mission to enter a new era of music festivals as we know it. Brainstorm Festival is known as an independent cultural rock- and metalfestival, that provides a stage to both new talent as well as metal-dinosaurs. The festival combines hardrock with extreme metal. Besides concerts Brainstorm Festival offers a program in the theater of the club with acoustic performances, interviews, debate and competitions. Also there is an exposition taking place each year, plus a small metal-market.
