BIG NEWS. The new album will be finished on December 10th. . It will be released in March 2008. And we might expect another dEUS-album in 2009.
In an interview with Veto Tom describes the new album as loud, eclectic and extravert. They will also tour the USA again, supporting bigger bands.
He also talks about his movieplans. Tom would like to have the scenario's for three movies finished within three years. He plans to start filming in 5 years.

Update: Jyves translated the interview for the non-dutch-speakers.
I've been playing around with a couple of new Blogger-features. I added a poll dedicated to your favorite dEUS-album in the sidebar. It will run for the next two weeks. If it works fine, I will add more polls in the future.
Youth Sentiment, my other blog, has been nominated for the Site of the year-awards by Clickx Magazine, a Flemish computerweekly. Don't be afraid to leave your votes on www.sitevanhetjaar.be. You can catch me in the category Blogs - beste nieuwkomer. Thx alot!
There's a small interview with Tom in Humo about the screening of Any Way The Wind Blows on Canvas. He shortly talks about the new album: it's gonna be good, will be released in march and will be produced by Dave McCrachan. There's no working title yet.
He also talks about the movie: the title isn't reffering to Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, but to a song by JJ Cale. His other movieplans include a film noir, a historical movie and a comedy.
dEUS will launch a new website together with the release of the new album. The site will be designed and developed by Milk And Cookies, a company that works for Prada, Rem Koolhaas, Diesel and Soulwax.
(thx to Michael)
The Flemish parliament is planning to give a kind of medal to a couple of musicians including Raymond van het Groenewoud , Will Tura, Dirk Brossé and Tom Barman. Vlaams Belang has objections to the medal of Tom because he has been acting against the party that is representing 24 percent of the Flemish people.
A small update on the new album: the recordings are almost finished. They are more or less focussing on 12 songs. The mixing will start somewhere in november. Release is scheduled for February-March (although Christian is still clearing things out with Universal and V2). I'll keep you posted when I have more news.
(btw: sorry for the lack of updates the last weeks, but I've been in bed most of the times. I have a rupture of my achilles tendon and working on a computer is still very painfull)
