to quit. We'd like to thank everybody who supported us during these years. Last
chance to see the band play will be at the "forever young festival"
Grootebroek. If you're not having the CD "Echopark" yet, this site is
the last place to order your copy!

Supporting Golden Earring
Yesterday May supported for Holland best rock band ever: "de Golden
Earring" in "de Weyver", Hoogwoud. Great Show and great sound! photo's
to be seen @ the
3voor12 Noord Holland made a nice article about our cd presentation. Tnx to Armand
Great We didn't even launched our cd and already we've got some orders, you want
it too? click
Starting today (;-)) we've placed new music. The teaser track in the may-player
gives you an idea off the new album
Today the production of the cd has begun. We have
put a lot of work in the graphic design and the finishing of it. The cd will be
presented in a luxurious digipack with booklet. Our thanks go to Niels Zwan for
his direction in these obscure matters.
June 20th 2008 is the day. Echopark can be bought
for the first time during the cd release party at Van Rooijen in Wervershoof. It
promises to be a spectacular night because for one we have contracted the great
Belgian band Staircase.
Last April 26th we have a great night during the
Battle of the Bands in Zevenbergen. To us this is the best band competition
there is. Hospitality, professionality of the jury and quality of the
contestants; all scored very high. Today we received the good news of being
selected for the grand finale on October 17th together with 6 other ace bands..
a tip! Check the website
Today the definitive master flew in from the USA.
For optimal result we have looked for a renowed firm en we have found one in
Precision Mastering in Los Angeles (Stones, RHCP, Nirvana & Counting
Crows).Wow! This really is the last push that the cd needed. O.. with a deep,
deep bow to Han for his fantastic mixing work.
2 years old
Hey.. it’s our birthday today. Today’s the
first day of our second year together. No cake & candles for now. We’re
gonna celebrate it during the cd release party later on this year.
The recording went really well and the premix
promisses more than we hoped for. This week the songs will be mixed at the Bulletsound
Studios. Our brainchild is now in the capable hands of Han Nuijten (2 Meter
Sessies) and will be taught to walk.
Today we start with the recording of our first full
length cd. After just over a year we will be found in the Legacy
Studio again. You can follow the proces of the materialization of this 10
track masterpiece on our hyves
We have found 2 reviews about our first cd “Open
Your Eyes”. Click here to
And the Award goes to..
West-Friesland has chosen and many were surprised by the outcome: Beavershot has
won the Westfriese Popprijs. But was this really a surprise? No doubt about it:
West-Friesland is the epicentre of brutal guitarsound and point-blank
musicallity. 3 out of 4 nominees take a different course and have stand out
because of that. So have we. But it's harsh to see that we turned out to be
second by only 1.2 procent of the votes behind no.1. But overall there's
positivity. The fact that in a year and a half we have made it amongst bands
which are here for at least 10 years, says it all. We have been noticed, we have
been heard! West-Friesland thanks for the honour.
3voor12 Noord Holland recently did an interview with MAY about the "Westfriese
Popprijs Award". Read
Today it has been confirmed that we will support the greatest Dutch band ever on
September 20th 2008 in Sportcentrum de Weyver, Hoogwoud. Special thanks goes to
May-believer Marco van Stam of JBL-Events for bringing about this gig.
Check out these live amateurshots of our gig in Paard van Troje, The Hague. A
good opportunity to value our latest work. Here
is Starting Today.
VPROs 3 voor12 has placed a sympathetic review on their site (in Dutch):
Als afsluiter van Wogpop staat de
Onderdijkse band May op het programma. Een band die rust en vertrouwen
uitstraalt, waardoor het publiek vertrouwen heeft in May. De set is in het begin
nogal soft maar gelukkig komt daar langzamerhand verandering in. De nummers
worden vrolijker en steviger en het publiek enthousiaster. May maakt muziek die
makkelijk in het gehoor ligt. "Niet te moeilijk", moeten ze vast
gedacht hebben. Dat werkt, want het optreden van May loopt als een trein en de
muziek staat als een huis. Na het laatste nummer wordt er door het publiek om
een toegift gevraagd. Gelukkig komt die toegift er ook, want het is nog niet
echt laat en de tijd is al zo snel gegaan. Lees
We are nominated for the
Westfriese Popprijs Award!!
We are 1 of the 4 bands which are handpicked by
the music industry, programmers and radiostations in West-Friesland because of
positive contribution to Westfrisian popculture. On January 26th 2008 we will
play together with T.IF.T, Beavershot en Scylla in Manifesto,
Hoorn. After this the award will be handed out. Somewhere soon voting will
start. The band with highest number of votes will win.
Tonights long journey to Groningen
has not been rewarding. No moviesoundtrack by May in the motion picture The
Deal. And fair is fair, the remarkable band Paper Tiger is a winner that fits
in just right. We did make some interesting new friends. Who knows what this
will bring us?
May Presents 1
Yep! The first edition of May Presents
is history. Together with Stud Muffins (The Hague) and A Silent Express (Groningen)
a poster to be proud of. But not everything went smooth. After Cool Zero
(Breda) cancelled their gig because of illness of the leadsinger, a day later
our Jacco did not seem capable of singing either. Knowing this, very bad
weather and the fact that it was St Nicholas Day for many of us, sadly resulted
in a poor attendance. It was the energetic performance of A Silent
Express that brightened up the day. This was followed by an extra long jummy
set by Stud Muffins. And after all we were able to squeezed out a neat 9 songs
too. Lost of enthousiatic reactions and a great atmosphere backstage give us a
good reason for organizing May Presents part II.
