I've known these guys for many years already and we've often talked about touring together, but it hasn't happened until now. So finally it's going to happen! We will play 1 or 2 brand new songs on this tour as well. The awesome band ALMANAC will also join us. There's a lot going on around MaYaN at the moment, and at the end of January, AriÃ«n van Weesenbeek will start with the drum recordings for the new album! We have some great ideas and wild fantasies in mind for this album - so stay tuned! We will release the album in September of this year and after that there will be more tours to come! Cheers to our MaYaN tribe and see you on the road!"
