Two hours interview with Nax on NPO Radio2 (AVRO TROS)
Looking forward to the release of new album "Elephant" from The New Shining: this night an extensive interview with singer / guitarist Nax in AVRO TROS Simone Walraven's Songlines on NPO Radio 2.
Tune in 2-4 Saturday 12/10 or listen later.
'This Too Shall Pass' released
This song is a reminder for anyone going through hard times. It will not last. This too shall pass. It's vital for somebody who suffers from depression not to be swallowed by the blackness, the big nothingness. And to remind themselves it will not last. It's one thing to sink to the bottom of the ocean, it's another to stay there and drown.
Each Friday we release a brand-new track from 'Elephant', our new album. This week: 'This Too Shall Pass', the 4th track on 'Elephant'.
This entire album is about mental illness, especially (chronic) depression. It's a shout-out to 'the invisibles', the people that struggle, suffer and fight courageously in silence.
You know anyone like that? Reach out and show them some love! ❤

The New Shining - Elephant
Door: Jeroen Schortemeijer | (Dutch only)
"Kijk, dat is nog eens een welkome verrassing, een nieuwe cd van The New Shining, 6 jaar na hun laatste album ‘Wake Up Your Dreams’. In de tussentijd konden we weliswaar genieten van Nax’ ingetogen, maar bloedmooie soloalbum ‘Heart Fire Home’, maar een TNS plaat had ik niet (meer) verwacht. En nog wel in dezelfde bezetting."
'Black Dog' released
The beast that always follows you around: depression a.k.a. 'Black Dog'.
Fighting depression can be an exhausting battle. It's a struggle that wears you out to the point that you just want to give in and fight no more.
It's not easy communicating what happens on the inside to the outside, the people around you.
Each Friday we release a brand-new track from 'Elephant', our new album. This week: 'Black Dog', the 3rd track on Elephant.
This entire album is about mental illness, especially (chronic) depression. It's a shout-out to 'the invisibles', the people that struggle, suffer and fight courageously in silence. You know anyone like that? Reach out and show them some love!

Nieuw album The New Shining na 5 jaar radiostilte
Door: Hessel van der Wal | Dutch only
"Het duurde vijf jaar, maar The New Shining komt met een nieuw album. Na vijf jaar radiostilte komt eind oktober 2019 het album ‘Elephant’ uit.
(...) Voor de plaat ‘Elephant’ is geëxperimenteerd met jaren ’80 stijlen. Het gevolg is een album met elektro-rock ondersteunt door synth sounds. Dit is al te horen op de uitgebrachte singles ‘Looks Like Rain’ en ‘Drown with me’ in aanloop naar het album. De teksten van de verschillende songs nemen de luisteraar mee in het leven van zanger Nax, zoals zijn depressie."

'Drown With Me' released
Last Friday we released our brand-new single 'Looks Like Rain'.
This week: 'Drown With Me', the 2nd track on Elephant.
This entire album is about mental illness, especially (chronic) depression. It's a shout-out to 'the invisibles', the people that struggle, suffer and fight courageously in silence. You know anyone like that? Show them some love! ❤

Willing to sponsor or donate for good, sincere music?
Well, we're working like crazy behind the scenes, and our new album Elephant is finished, BUT we're still 5000 euros or so short, money we need to release and promote our new album, to make it all happen and give it a fighting chance.
We're not asking money from you personally, but should you know people or companies willing to sponsor or donate for good, sincere music, please give us a headsup!
We'd love to give them a call or reach out to them (or should you be that person, you could reach out to us). Send an email to email@example.com. It's greatly appreciated, thanks! :)
