ONE EYE OPEN are thrilled to announce their return to the stage with brand new songs and a couple of shows in support of their upcoming studio album, which will be released next spring. After a successful tour in Ireland last year, the fans in Europe will be able to enjoy a dynamic new live show with additional percussion and keys, including tunes from the new album as well as classics such as "Popcorn heads and suicide faces" and "Ballads from a tired world".
Acoustic guitars, mandolin, violin and percussions – that is all you need for straight, direct and authentic music that goes right into your heart. ONE EYE OPEN is the German band around singer and songwriter Markus “Major” Guenter, who writes all songs and lyrics. His raspy and intense voice is in the focus, his lyrics remind us of Dylan Thomas, John Steinbeck or Tom Waits, with all their yearning and melancholy. Critics compare the music with Mumford & Sons or The Lumineers and praise in particular the great atmosphere of the live concerts. The band already had the opportunity to share the stage with musicians such as Ezio, Liam o’Maonlai, Justin Sullivan and Niels Fevert.
