After getting back safely to their hometown after that weekend away in Wuppertal, Stuttgart and Zurich, there are more news about PERSEPHONE which just cannot be held back any longer:

Since PERSEPHONE collaborated with orchestra for the first time, there was a dream growing in Martin Höfert's head: To do a soundtrack for a movie. Well, it seems as if this could already happen in near future because he did some music for a project that's currently in competition. And if you want it to win, please vote for it.
Maybe you should » watch it first:
It is called "Hagezussa" and is an adaption of "Hansel and Gretel" in an more like end-times context. Though you have to register to post a voting it is quite simple and does not demand anything personal except your email adress.
The voting lasts for this week only, so hurry up and keep your fingers crossed!

A 100% sure however is that PERSEPHONE will be in Hannover and Leipzig next weekend to play the last concerts of the small but extraordinary "Letters To A Stranger"-tour. They'd be delighted to meet you there.

Tim Warweg, also know playing the Vibraphone on the last two LPs will be on stage with PERSEPHONE this weekend.

19.01.2008 - Many stages... »

...is what the "Rex-Theater" went through during its existance so far: Different purposes, different names but though it always seemed to be something special what was happening in there. So this looks like a perfect match to PERSEPHONE who are looking forward to step into this ancient hall. Nevertheless they are also keen of the other cities, Stuttgart and Zurich, where same as Wuppertal PERSEPHONE never have been playing before. So for them it's not "many" but of course "new" stages...
