Hi all,
We’ve only just landed in the Netherlands after a night on the ferry from Newcastle to IJmuiden. Our UK-tour was tiring and great at the same time. From Glasgow to Brighton and everything in between. Thanks for the love if you were at one of the gigs. And in 10 days or so we take the boat again (pun intended ;-) ) for another run of concerts. But of course we don’t only play in the UK, we go all over Europe in the next 6 months (and keep an eye on dates beyond this part of the world)! See all dates over at pipblom.com. More shows to follow!

Norwich was great ;-)

Gigwise on our The Great Escape show: "If you ever needed your faith reignited in music, Pip Blom are the band to see."
This is what Boat looks like
You can only release your debut album once. That’s why we didn’t rush things with our 10-track album Boat. We finished mixing late 2018 and are happy that we can finally share it with the world. From May 31 onwards (less than 3 weeks to go) it will be available on all streaming and download platforms, but of course you can get your fysical copy too. Support your local record shop!
Have a first look at Boat, thanks Suzanne Stevens for the design!

And the very first review is already in ...
Now the nervous waiting starts. What will people think? Well, whatever everyone thinks, the first review is good. Thanks Hayley of the Skinny for your kind words: “Boat is a triumphant debut album because it’s both familiar and authentic, and when you have a melodic impulse that shines as brightly as this, you can’t really go wrong. 4/5”
We had a great Rolling Stone mention too!
We are proud to be in Rolling Stone magazine for the second time. Daddy Issues (the opening track of Boat) made it into the magazine’s Top 10: “This Dutch punk band spikes its testy guitar racket with fresh-faced melody and as much empathy as anger. Blom sings to a sad friend, delivering do-it-yourself rock with a get-over-yourself message.”
New gigs in NL, FR, DE, CH, AU, CZ, IS !
Since we last had contact, a lot of gigs have been played and a lot of new ones have been added to our schedule. These are the recently added gigs! Find all gigs at pipblom.com
