Hello friends, another Pip update. With news on playing gigs and recording stuff, because that’s what we do! 
By the way, on the 30th of june, it’s a year since we played our very first concert. Only a year! So much has happened. Time flies …. 

England, here we come again: The Great Escape!
We had a great time supporting Surfer Blood in Europe. We loved the gigs in England. A few weeks ago we did 6 days of England on our own. That was cool too! Thanks Jacob, Sean, Josh, Stephen for making it possible.
In a few weeks time we’ll be travelling to the UK again because we’ve just been added to the bill of The Great Escape festival in Brighton: “The Great Escape is the festival for new music, showcasing 450 emerging artists from all over the world in 30+ walkable venues across the city. It’s the first place to discover your new favourite artist and see them in an intimate setting before they go on to headline major festival stages.” 
We’ll be playing two gigs at The Great Escape, one of them is at the Dutch Impact Show Case.

And there's more ....
On the same journey we’ll be playing ‘I Am Indeed Mate, Assume You’ll Be Around’, a London warmup festival to The Great Escape brought to you by Vice, DIY and Ben Blackburn. On the 16th of may we’ll be playing the Old Blue Last with Jay Som, Middle Kids and Pixey.
Selected for Popronde
In Holland we have a really special concept called Popronde, a travelling showcase festival through 40 Dutch cities. We’ve been selected as one of the bands to be part of the event this year. It takes place during weekends in september, october and november.  
At work with Mathias Janmaat & Simon Akkermans
Thanks to support of De Coöperatie we’re working with Mathias Janmaat (Bombay) and Simon Akkermans (C-mon & Kypski) on new material. This week we were in the studio to record! There is a lot going on behind the scenes concerning a new release, we’ll keep you posted!
