dEUS has won the Zamu-award for best (Belgian) live act of 2006. What We Talk About (When We Talk About Love) was competing in the Best Song-category. That category was won by The Player (Daan)

This weekend the Flemish liberal party VLD presented the name they will be using for the next elections in Belgium. The name (Open VLD) and the logo were revealed with Suds & Soda as the soundtrack.

dEUS-manager Christian Pierre says it was a complete surprise for him too. He thinks nobody within the band will have a problem with it. In the past Little Arithmetics was used by the socialist party SP-A.
They did react when Vlaams Belang used What We Talk About because it was in a promo-movie.

Well, it's not really breaking news, but Glen Hansard of The Frames has apparently been talking to Tom about doing something together.

Tom mailed me an article from De Zondag about the funeral of Marc Meulemans. It contained a picture of Tom holding a speech.

There's an interview with CJ Bolland in Metro (Belgian free daily) today. He talks about a new Magnus album coming up somewhere around August 2008. He says dEUS will finish the new album and the forthcoming tour first. Magnus will be releasing a couple of singles in the meantime.

This could be an indication that the next tour will be indeed shorter than the Pocket Revolution-tour. Alan already mentioned this in an interview back in August.
The new dEUS album is scheduled for the end of 2007 / the beginning of 2008. If the new Magnus album will be released in August, that leaves about 8 months of touring (including the summer festivals)

Check your snail-mail, Ingrid Bries. Two tickets for the Magnus-gig in Opwijk are coming your way. I hope you don't mind I share your story with the other visitors.

I met Tom on one of my flights last november. I always have liked the music of dEUS, but honestly Tom Barman... I thought he was an arrogant, big Egokind of guy... until that night!!! What a nice and friendly man!!! If only all our passengers were like him, my job would be a lot easier! I got intrigued and since that day I have been reading everything I could findabout him on the internet. I bought the CD's, DVD's... I must say I amreally impressed!

Someone pointed me to this video. The song used in the video is called There's nothing impossible and it's performed by a band / guy called Deus. The full-album is available for download here.
