Frank Weyzig started his music career with Dutch electronic wave legend ‘Clan of Xymox’ from way back at the time they were signed with the infamous English 4AD label in the mid-eighties. Frank played guitar & keyboards on the famous debut album in 1985 and joined the band on stage as live guitarist and keyboard player until 1990. From 1995 until 1999 he played as vocalist and guitarist with Dutch indie-wave band ‘Born For Bliss. Some of you may remember their first pre-released cd-single, ‘Arabia’ (for Nuclear Blast – Death Wish Office – 1996). This single became an addicting club hit and made its way high into the German alternative charts. In 1997 followed the release of their first full length album ‘Flowing with the Flue’ which also entered high into the German alternative album charts..

 

…and then it became anxiously silent around Frank. Somehow, together with his music, he went into a long hibernation sleep… until the beginning of 2010, when Frank surprisingly made his return into the music scene with his contribution for White Rose Transmission, the band founded by Carlo van Putten (at that time vocalist of The Convent; now the singer of Dead Guitars) and the so sadly missed Adrian Borland (front man of English 80′s cult band The Sound). With Frank’s contribution for White Rose Transmission as co-writer, band member and producer for their latest album ‘Spiders in the Mind Web’ (release date; May 7 – 2010, label; ECHOZONE), he established himself again on the horizon of alternative music…

 

But that isn’t all there is. It seems as if Frank needs to make up for all that lost time while he was hibernating… So another surprise follows when German label Echozone decides to also release the second Born For Bliss album ‘Between Living and Dreaming’… Originally this album was recorded and mixed in 1999 but due to problems with their former label and management this album never saw the daylight. And now, after a successful album release (April 30 – 2010) and many good reviews, we can even announce the official rebirth of Born For Bliss… Frank, together with his long time companions; Remco Helbers and Willem van Antwerpen, is now working in his studio on new tracks for a follow up Born For Bliss album…

 

But first you can enjoy a re-release of the first Born For Bliss album, “Flowing with the Flue’. This will be a remastered version of the 1997 album plus extra, never before, released remixes and the single version of ‘She’ (from the Arabia EP) and will be available in the fall of 2011 on Echozone as well…

 

And if that’s not enough there’s another one of Frank’s project’s that also will see the daylight; ‘StarGazing Project’. Together with Remco Helbers, Frank has written a collection of songs for which the main source of inspiration was the Internet. Inspired by the many mysteries of our time; conspiracies, alien abductions, ufo encounters and other strange events, Frank and Remco searched the internet for unusual sounds and recordings. These elements give shape to their ‘StarGazing Project’ in a very peculiar way… A digital release of their album “StarGazing’ has been released May 27 – 2011 – Label: ECHOZONE.

 

Furthermore Frank has finished the final mixes of the new White Rose Transmission live album ‘Spinning Webs at Night”. Release date: May 6 – 2011 – Label: ECHOZONE.

In January 2011 Frank founded ‘TURMOIL MUSIC’, a free Music Platform for Independent Artists…

 

…. and last but not least there is his latest project. A collaboration with Dutch singer Yvette Winkler, known for her work with her band Sea of Souls and her contribution to Pieter Nooten’s latest album, “Here is Why” (2010)… A mutual artistic curiousity gave birth to their VASELYNE project in the spring of 2011… VASELYNE is planning on finishing their debut-album later this year.

 

So yes, all things considered… he really deserved that long sleep… better let him stay awake from now on….
