New bass player announced

Despite the news that Gijs decided to leave Sylvium, we have been anxious to get back to work on our third album. Altough we are still in writing- and planning phase as to what we want to do, we have a clear view of the future; an exciting future !

As we have several gigs ahead of us in the coming months, we have enlisted the aid of bass player Rich(ard) Huybens, a very talented bassplayer and awesome dude all rolled into one.

We're happy to have him in the band and look forward to a long and productive time together!
Our first gig with Rich will be on the 12th of September in Russelsheim, Germany at the Progressive Promotion Festival. We will also be at Progfrog anniversary festival on the 24th of October in Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel. We're looking forward to seeing you all there and Rock you all.
