About The Black Atlantic
The Black Atlantic is former Shai Hulud and current Miscreants vocalist, Geert van der Velde’s indie rock project. It started as a project with his best friend, Menno Vos (drums) but quickly turned into something more serious after Geert recorded his first song in February of 2006. The song was a Valentine’s gift to his then girlfriend, now wife. Recording ‘Send This Home (a letter in sonics)’ and the subsequent label interest after the song’s debut on Myspace gave the project the momentum that it needed to fully come alive.
In January of 2007 The Black Atlantic made it’s first live appearance at the Eurosonic Festival, one of Europe’s biggest independent music festivals / showcases. Since then the band has toured and played shows with various line-ups up until the current line-up.
Robert Koole (drums) and Arjen de Bock (piano) have been with the band since the European / UK tour in April, May. Matthijs Herder (bass) has been with the band since August and has steered the band through their recent new recording endeavors at his Paperboat Studio resulting in a 3 song demo including the new song, “Madagascar”, that is currently up for listening.
Robert and Matthijs are both also active in progressive and psychedelic rock outfit Oceana Company.
The Black Atlantic’s debut EP “Send This Home” was recorded in the early fall of 2006 by Geert with the help of various contributing friends (no current members of the band).
It was picked up early 2007 and released in the US by Five Point Records (NY)and will be available in Germany through Midsummer Records early 2008. Geert will be back out on the road solo / acoustic in Europe and the US for the remainder 2007. The full band will start touring again early 2008 and then concentrate on writing The Black Atlantic’s debut album, as of yet untitled
