Last weekend we played our first gig at the Fascinus in Sassenheim. Thanks to all @ De Grote Prijs van de Bollenstreek, who said about KOLBAK:
"The seasoned gentlemen of indie pop collective KOLBAK [...] engross themselves in their performance. The singer manages to captivate the audience with his enthousiasm and quirky mannerisms. A fine band with good melodic pop rock songs " Read all (in Dutch) here.
Meet the band.
L to R: Rick (bass), Harold (vocal/guitar), and Dennis (drums)

We have been selected for the Grote Prijs van de Bollenstreek competition. On the 4th of November we will be joined by several bands at the Fascinus venue in Sassenheim. More live dates will follow. Hope to see you all there.
Merchandize. Coming up!
New site. Stuff will be added and changed. For now: a song for a new band baby on SoundCloud.
KOLBAK is joined by bass player Rick Ruhland and drummer Dennis Aaij. Hope to be out and about real soon. Check gig dates for updates in the near future.
A Facebook poll held to determine what song should be made into a video - the Top 3:
1. Independence for Arrogance
2. Help You/Help Me
In the next couple of months we will be dreaming up a concept. We'll keep you posted.
KOLBAK EP review by the excellent NoMoreDivision.com blog:
3.6 out of 5 "the songwriting was solid along with the production and delivery. I‘d like to hear some more of his work under the KOLBAK moniker and hope it doesn't take four years to see the light of day."
Correcting glitches in audio on streaming services like Spotify and iTunes. Apparently, aggregated uploading had its downfalls.
DIY alert: "Sea" is not available in retail hardcopy yet. If you have downloaded the album through Bandcamp, or other outlets, you can get the cd artwork here.
"Sea" The new EP is out. Listen to it in full here, buy, share and enjoy.
"The bright to my naive". Tracklisting and new track "Older than me" coming soon, while "Once" will get a re-treatment.
"A bite of the hand that feeds". A re-recorded track. Confusion Against. Here and here.
Hurray! The new KOLBAK track called Once is up. Check it out here.
