“Resurrecting the Alternative Rock of the 90s”
Instead of taking a well deserved break in 2017, PACESHIFTERS put the pedal to the metal and will release a new album that will again take the trio to the far ends of Europe and beyond to let people experience their alternative guitarrock. Whether it is a big Summer festival or an obscure small basement doesn't matter to Seb Dokman (Guitar/Vocals), Paul Dokman (Bass/Vocals) and Jesper Albers (Drums/Vocals). Because the stage is the natural habitat of this memorable rockband.
No compromises or concessions for Paul, Seb and Jesper not musically or whatever. These three maverick rockers are aiming for a long term career which means for them being loyal to their stubborn, take it or leave it, mentality. Which is already showcased by their former albums with which the trio transformed from a young enthusiastic band to a band worthy of competing in the major league of rock. In those years they toured endlessly taking them from the biggest Dutch festivals like Zwarte Cross and Pinkpop to the biggest festivals in Europe such as Exit, Rock for People, Woodstock (Poland), Groezrock and even SXSW in the US.
But like they say that is all just history now. The band is aiming at 2017 and beyond. With a mission statement set in concrete: Amaze their audiences by dragging them in and overtake them! Which is what they do with their already well known PACESHIFTERS trademarked shows of Power, Energy and above all visible fun.
And there we have the new album: “Waiting to Derail” produced by Chris “Frenchie” Smith (a.o. Dandy Warhols, The Datsuns) which showcases a mixture of endorphin, dopamine, adrenaline and a small dose of testosterone. Raw but catchy, overwhelming and accessible at the same time, disturbed but pleasing. And above all with an unbounded passion for Rockmusic.

Paceshifters is a Noise/Grunge Rock trio; that doesn't care about lists, bank accounts or what is hip. As anyone who has witnessed one of their live shows over the past five years can attest, Paceshifters charges the musical landscape with an unbridled ambition and energy. They've shared stages with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Deep Purple, Marilyn Manson, 3 Doors Down, Triggerfinger and Therapy?; in fact, after witnessing Paceshifters' live show, Andy Cairns of Therapy? was inspired to comment: ** "If the future of Dutch Rock n Roll is in the hands of Paceshifters, it's in f**ing safe hands!"*
