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.

According to this (old) article from NRC one of the songs on the new album will be called Corruption. It's about daily corruption, the way people behave in relationships.

For those of you wandering if the ISR Community will ever live again: yes, it will. Vincent forwarded me an e-mail from Arthur. Arthur is currently reworking the community. A new version will be live within two weeks.

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.

Yep. It's that time of the year again. You can vote for De Tijdloze from Studio Brussel. Last year dEUS had 5 songs in the top 50.

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.

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)
