About Today


EP “Perspective” released

On June 1st, 2012 About Today released their EP “Perspective”. The EP can be ordered through Bandcamp as both a physical and digital release, it is available through iTunes and other web stores, and is also available through Spotify.

“Perspective” was recorded and mixed at Studio Westmaas and mastered by Nick in ‘t Veld. Studio Moost has designed the artwork.

“Perspective really shows what drives us as a band and the search we’re going through. It has become a very dynamic EP that we’re really proud of, and that really displays the diversity of the band. We’ve grown a lot since our previous demo and are still growing. We’d love to see you all at the Paardcafé in The Hague. With The Light Parade joining us, it’s bound to be an awesome party.”

About Today will celebrate the occasion at the Paardcafé in The Hague on the 23rd of June, together with The Light Parade.

The Music

The Next Gig

The Band

Nils (lead vocals and guitar) has a strong singer/songwriter and indie background. He writes catchy pop songs as easily as he writes a steaming rock 'n' roll track.

Andra (drums and backing vocals) started life in a marching band, and has played in a singer/songwriter duo as well as a hardcore metal band. As a multi instrumentalist and sound engineer, he's aware of all aspects of a song and how they work together.

Yrjo (guitar and backing vocals) is a musical jack of all trades, and can play different genres of music ranging from blues to metal. He's also a genuine gearhead, songwriter, guitar and bass teacher, and has more than 10 years of stage and recording experience.

The Bio

Nils and Andra have been working together as a studio-project since 2008. Since they missed performing as a group, they started looking for the right musicians to complete the band. Between the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010 they met Kevin and Yrjo, and began learning and refining their songs.

The various members of About Today have built up quite a bit of experience. Yrjo, for example, has played most Dutch clubs with his previous band Curfew. Kevin played the main stage in Paradiso with Daymute. Andra has worked and performed a few years with singer/songwriter Elly Kellner, in a formation called Keshri.

They have just wrapped up recording and mixing their first demo, and work on the first album has already started. Here, too, About Today are looking for a balance between mainstream and exciting. The energy of a live show, with a sonic experience that's only attainable in a studio.
