SOOTHSAYER ORCHESTRA is Pieter Hendriks. Pieter was born and raised in the early 80’s in a small town in the south of The Netherlands, At a very young age he got introduced to music and playing instruments by his parents. Here he got hooked on a wide variety of music genres. In the early 90’s the big city called and introduced Pieter to different music and new horizons. Freeing him from the tunnel visions of living in a small town. Soon after at the age of 15, Pieter started touring in various Punk and Hardcore bands across the globe. Long drives in shitty vans to play in squats in forgotten towns in faraway countries was a reality check and shaped character. Years of  touring the world he moved to Eindhoven. This culminated in 2015 in setting up a home studio. Where he started recording songs by himself, without plan or clear vision. Out of these recordings Soothsayer Orchestra was born.

Pieter is a musical solitudinarian who has enough gumption to leave the commonplace behind and only take with him what can enrich his music and performance. There is a certain weight of tragedy in his music. His gravelly voice possesses sometimes an uneasy moodiness that reflects doom and despair. It immerses you in the dark side of life.
Then, amidst this darkness Soothsayer compositions shift to newfound hope. Warm and flowing, creating a longing, yet bold mood. Especially in a live performance, with the backing of a band who got their routine down, Pieter Hendriks songs come to peak dramatically.

For the upcoming self-titled debut album, most lyrics and song ideas were written in an old caravan in the middle of the dark forest of the Eifel in Germany. Pieter isolated himself there without a phone and television. Just loneliness and silence to focus on his songs. All these roads resulted in a self-titled Soothsayer Orchestra debut album which will be released by Lay Bare Recordings in January 2021. Pieter Hendriks has made a pact with his inner self and tells us that
more Sooth Sayer songs are forthcoming.

Soothsayer Orchestra is best to file under: Dark Americana, Folk Noir, Apocalyptic Blues

For Fans Of: Nick Cave, Mark Lanegan and Wovenhand.

Aqualamb Krampus Holiday Stream with a.o. FRAYLE presented by St. Vitus Bar & Revolver

Hosted by Chris Enriquez, the KRAMPUS HOLIDAY STREAM features live performances by Cleveland’s lush doom rockers FRAYLE, plus the crushing nihilism of Brooklyn’s Burning Tongue, soulful macabre from Nathaniel Shannon & The Vanishing Twin, and singer-songwriter Zeb Gould’s haunting gloom folk and music videos by Lo-PanSpylacopaSkryptorMurderedmanSpace Merchants and many more!
Since we can’t convene for a show the day after Christmas as is customary in our fair city of New York, we’re going to bring you a slew of epic performances right to the comfort of your own home, or gutter, or wherever you’re at these days; as long as it has wi-fi. **We really hope you are not in a gutter, at least not physically. If you’re in a mental gutter, this will certainly offer some reprieve.

Tickets can be purchased online at Saint Vitus Bar and are $10. For a little more cash, you can grab some limited edition goodies, such as a Krampus Holiday Stream poster and Krampus t-shirt designed by Branca Studios, and art, vinyl and tees from our live artists.
We’re honored to showcase and bring together all these excellent bands and their fans, to create a much needed sense of rock ‘n’ roll community, one which we hope to return to in person as soon as possible. In the meantime, let your 2020-weathered heart rejoice in the folkloric creepiness of Krampus and the knowledge that these bands are still out there creating incredible music. We’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Happy Krampus and here’s to a year of unstoppable, inspiring music ahead.

WOW, all 550 liter of the RRRags Power Tripel SOLD OUT!

WOW, all 550 liter of the RRRags Power Tripel are gone in less than 2,5 months! 

The RRRags Power Tripel is the first band-beer release Lay Bare Recordings ever did. 

All kudos go to master brewer Jelmer ter Beek from Brouwerij Mannenpap based in Nijmegen (NL) who did the tricks and magic on this 9% Heavy Beer. 

And of course to Rrrags; Rob Zim, Ron van Herpen and Rob Martin who gave their fully support to the concept of a band-beer. 

During this pandemic Lay Bare Recordings joined forces with New Roads Brewery | Erik Aalbers to make this Rrrags beer release possible. 

Blown away by all of the positive support that we have received for this beer. We are incredibly grateful to all customers. 

It is truly amazing to see the support that people are putting behind bands, diy record labels and small business at this time and we encourage folks to flock to their other favorite local small businesses the way they did with the Rrrags Power Tripel. 

This pandemic gave us new insights how to keep a band alive and kickin’ even when live gigs weren’t allowed! 

The Rrrags Power Tripel is the first and foremost booster to a collaboration with multiple parties! We will take this as a learning experience going forward. 

Cheers to you all!
