All live dates (see Live) starting from March 13th have been postponed or canceled because of covid-19 (what else...). Some dates will be rescheduled, some will not. I'll update the Live page as soon as I have more definite news. In the meantime, keep your distance & stay healthy!

My new single Meteor On The Rise (6'30) is out now and for the time being exclusively sold for 1€ (or more if you feel like it) through Bandcamp. All proceeds are donated to a highly necessary food project from Huis van de Mens in Ghent (B). You can listen to the entire track before deciding to buy it. As someone described it: "Very much Blanchart, this dreamy moody groove with some subtly added Bowie, Art of Noise and Pink Floyd flavours." Warning: contains 2 (!) guitar solos by axe master Stef Delbaere.
