Progessive Gothic Metal Band ‘Askara’ Signs Bookingsdeal with ‘Desert Rose Agency’


The Swiss melodic gothic-rock band Askara signed a bookingsdeal with Desert Rose Agency from The Netherlands. The agency will represent the band exclusive in The Netherlands and Belgium and non-exclusive in Europe. During Spring the first results of this new co-operation will be made public.

During the last years Askara worked hard on their reputation, mainly in their homecountry Switzerland. Last September the band was introduced to the European audience, when Askara joined Sleeping Romance on their ‘Alba-tour’ through Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium. The Swiss were received well and this resulted in a deal with Desert Rose Agency.

Bandleader Elia Schmidt is enthousiastic about the deal. ,,Askara is very excited to announce the cooperation with Desert Rose Agency. With this powerful partner the band will return foremost to the Netherlands and Belgium to celebrate their Gothic Metal on stage. Askara is thrilled to include many new and all existing fans into the live experience of the atmospheric and yet riff-driven musical perfomance.”

Desert Rose Agency is an independent bookingsagency. Amongst the bands on the roster are Theocracy (USA), Sleeping Romance (ITA), Morgarten (CH), Within Silence (SK) and Leonov (NO). Also the agency has done European tours with for example Wind Rose (ITA),  Welicoruss (RUS), Nightland (ITA) and Undawn (NL).

Askara‘s debut album “Horizon of Hope” has been released on October 20th 2016. Our review can be found here.
