HONEYMOON COWBOYS 'Honeymoon Cowboys ... Liberating The West!'

Dark and gloomy sounds from the Wild West with great passion and a touch of joy.

The Honeymoon Cowboys are a Belgian band formed by Antonio Palermo (guitar) and Klaas Hoogerwaard (drums), both of Siglo XX, together with Tom Van Troyen (vocals), Kris Dries (bass) and Thomas François (keyboards).

Siglo XX is still one of the most renown Belgian New-Wave/Cold-Wave bands of the 80's who soon after the release of theirs first release / 7" 'Individuality', gathered a strong following in and outside Belgium. With their atmospheric, yet energetic live shows and dark sounding vocals they quickly earned themselves a real cult-status while the press respectfully referred to them as 'The Belgian Joy Division'.

After several releases on the Belgian cult label Antler Records they signed to PIAS (Play It Again Sam) for the release of 3 more albums.

However, after the release of their last studio album ‘Under a Purple Sky’ in 1989 the band became inactive and dissolved. Since, most of their releases became hard to find (expensive) collector items.

Today, more than 25 years later, Siglo XX ex-members formed the Honeymoon Cowboys. A band that sounds incredibly, but not surprisingly, like their former project. Those lucky ones who already witnessed their try out gigs or their rememberable concert at the Eurorock festival (2015) will confirm this for sure.

Now, especially for their performance at BIMFEST 2015 we convinced the Honeymoon Cowboys to play a full show set-list containing 50% Siglo XX tracks! Also original Siglo XX Bass player Dirk Chauvaux will join them on stage as a guest musician.

Why should you come and see them at our BIMFEST XIV?
Because they are a fucking great live band and this will be the closest you ever will get to seeing and hearing those Siglo XX cult anthems being played live!!i
