Good Bye

Good Bye

Sometimes, after years of being in a partnership, you notice that you don’t get along the way you used to do and that you have nothing to tell each other anymore. That is the point where you should be honest and admit that the common voyage is over and the time has come for everyone to go his own way.
This is the reason why we decided to break up the band Strysles by the end of 2019. We had ups and downs like every band out there, some great achievements like our 2 CDs and some memorable gigs that we played. These impressions will definitely stick with us for some time.
We would like to thank everyone who supported us, too many to mention here, but above all our audience. Keep your eyes and ears open, there are already some new projects in the making. Also we have some “Power of Life” CDs left so if you want a souvenir, drop us a line (8€).
Sincerely yours,

Strysles hit TopTen on iTunes

After our clip passed the 10.000 views mark on YouTube a couple of weeks ago, we are now proud to announce that our last single “Rock ‘n’ Roll” has reached rank 9 on iTunes in category Luxembourg/alternative and also entered the Top100 in category Luxembourg/all genres.We would like to thank you, our audience, for this and please keep on downloading, streaming and viewing.

Thank you Dudetown

We would like to thank everyone that came out to see us at yesterday’s Fête de la Musique in Dudelange. You have all been great and we really had a blast.

Special thanks also go out to John Rech and his whole team, you made it happen one more time.

You say goodbye and we, we say hello…

We are sorry to announce that our good friend Sacha on bass guitar has taken the decision to disembark the Strysles spaceship. He will be continuing his journey with our friends from Go By Brooks and we wish him all the best.

BUT we are also very proud and happy to welcome our new man on bass, the well known and almighty Mr Dan Thurmes. He will be taking care to bring the right grooves to our rhythm section. We are looking forward to hit the stage with him for the very first time on April 27th at Télévie Schifflange. Don’t miss it.

Rock um Knuedler 2018 Look Back

Rock um Knuedler last weekend was a blast. We had a lot of fun on the big main stage and were very satisfied with the tech support and sound guys.

This year again, no internationally known name, but more room for the local bands. More than 20 acts rocked this great festival whether on the main stage at the town hall or on the two side stages in the alleys and squares of the old town: “Rock um Knuedler” attracted thousands of music fans.

Here is a little video look back:
