The dark and raw energy of Tales during their live set makes it hard to put them in a genre, but it’s music you will definitely feel. Founded over their shared love for guitar driven rock and ‘do it yourself’ aesthetics, Tales have firmly established themselves as one of Amsterdam’s finest underground rock bands. Their stories are not about the bright side of life but rather deal with personal turmoil, the battle of inner conflict, chaos and contradiction. Tales is guaranteed to play an intense live show, with abrasive guitar sounds, battering drums and heavy bass, without losing sight of composition and melodic sense. Now, with the new extended and solid line-up, they are set to play as much shows as physically possible.

Matthias van Beek: Guitar and vocals
Wessel van der Kroef: Guitar
David Stapel: Bass and backing vocals
