Last week’s show at Kaufleuten was our last one. It’s time to call it a day. We had such a wonderful trip. Thanks to everyone we’ve met along the way – everyone who shared the love or just a drink. You know who you are. Without you, this trip would not have been half as much fun.

Springtime in Stockholm

Stockholm Archipelago

Hej Vänner. Hur är det?

I know, it’s been a while since we last posted something to this site. But hey, now we’re back. At least in digital form.

A lot has happened here at Camp CHOO CHOO. After travelling through Southeast Asia between January and April, me and Lili moved to Stockholm, where we plan to live at least for a year. We touched ground the 1st of May and are currently busy setting up our new life in the heart of Scandinavia.

We’re exploring the city, meeting new people, learning to speak swedish and generally sucking in every unknown sound & impression. These are very inspirational times. And that’s exactly what we were looking for. Playing in a band is one hell of an adventure, but it’s also a hell lot of routine. 2012 is a year to break out. A year of creativity.

That said CHOO CHOO will only be playing a couple of single shows this year. So, don’t miss these 2 summer gigs:

  • August 1st 2012 at Estivale Open Air in Estavayer le Lac
  • August 15th 2012 at Kaufleuten Zürich

I’ve already written a good chunk of new music – and I’ll be writing as much as I can up here in Stockholm. Let’s see where the music takes us.
