about

Days After The Storm sprang to life in 2008 after a chance meeting in an Amsterdam park between Italian vocalist Frank Valchiria and Portuguese guitar/bass-player Vasco Asturiano. They soon realised that the connection they shared when jamming was something that they couldn't let go of - Valchiria's unique and powerful voice and exquisite lyrics blending perfectly with the deep, creative tones of Asturiano's guitars.

The line up was completed when Dutch guitarists Frank Wolff and Pytrik Rot and drummer Ron Komduur joined the circle, adding a fresh and exciting undercurrent to the music.

With three different nationalities in the band, and a multitude of influences from jazz to rock to folk, Days After The Storm grasps inspiration from as many sources as it can, crosses as many musical boundaries as possible and refuses to be labelled as 'just another band'.

The Way Home is the debut EP from the band, produced in 2010.
Recorded at Redline studios, Amsterdam, NL.

Track Name: Longing
Away from everything that has been I feel the longing
I know I have to keep this in mind

Today the shelter has lost its fences
But I won't hold on the feeling that I have
Away from everything that has been I feel the longing

A promise made to last in time
Away, you gonna go away from me
Just one step away…

Still got so many things to say
But will it matter when your feelings tell you otherwise

Sometimes I blame it upon yourself
But then I ask you, do you feel anything at all?
Away from everything that has been I feel the longing

A promise made to last in time
Away you gonna go away from me

Will you chase the past will you crawl
Will you find the same
Don’t you wait for me take your step away
Just one step away

Soaring those eyes are glittering mirror of your past
None of your tricks I forgot but loved

Drumming those leaves under a dripping rain
Leaving nothing but the will to go on

A friend, a lover, a silhouette from today
Comforting memories will change
But no no no no no no way
I let the pain to fill the day
No no no no no no way
I lose on you another day
Track Name: Sometimes
Drink from your first love
Sprouting dancing clovers you wear around your neck
The city is just behind
Let's keep it waiting for today

There is nothing to understand
Will last until your solitude will win
Tingling thing
Tingling your life when you ask what's next

Sometimes we even cry
Falling off the petals we're leaning on

Squeeze yourself between an elevator crowded
With no sympathy for you
None of them
It's you, but you know

Proud of patching the past with today
Tingling thing
Tingling your life when you ask what's next

Sometimes we even cry
Falling off the petals we're leaning on

Holding her tight
Shrouding the flight
What will you hide
But hold her tight
Hold her tight

Sometimes we even cry
Falling off the petals we're leaning on
Track Name: Try
Try even if you cry
Give that letter you wrote for her
Try when you lose the why
Keep the pieces together and try
Try when your mother dries
The sweat from her face when she brought you up

Bring me where the box of dreams are stored
Bring me where the clocks are still
An orphan voice to bribe the law
A dimming hope becoming a glow
Open it now open it now
Don’t keep for tomorrow...

Under the piece of what you believed it's vanished your guilt
But now you know tight in your shirt it's you you’re looking in the mirror
Of all the things that you dream and desire there is only so much you take with you
With you

Bring me where the box of dreams are stored
Bring me where the giant walks
One on one the hands will crown
A changing color a rolling stone
Open it now open it now
But don’t keep for tomorrow…

Laugh like a kid in that window from the past
Not only voices but all the colors you know
Stay there in between a circle of hands
Run before your shadow leave it behind
When nothing can reach you
Can you say you're free
Can you say you're free

Time will flow and cause one child to grow old
And feel those fears, one dream calls no fears

Ah, feel me, here to go
Track Name: Alien Escalation
An open course to place a bet on a wild horse
Feeding human cell capsules to feel the moon touch
Aristocracy melting in a silicon bath
In a place where you're never going in hope
Hope on your day dream

Your mind is leaking
Your fear is grinding
Proving you are alive

A mother born to keep the peace of a screaming riot
And no one knows to hold the guilt of every age
Molding ferries lined to conquer north and south
Lore is dark before the strike of an infant growl

Grind your teeth to scare the children of your neighbor
Seep the drop of your destiny from labor
An errant on the run

Eastern sun bathe my frightened bones
A lot like love
A lot like love
Eastern sun bathe my frightened bones
A lot like love
A lot like love

A mocking bird tries the shoulder of the new elect
A calling pole will show you how to fetch
And grind your teeth to scare the children of your neighbor
Seep the drops of your destiny from labor
An errant on the run

Your mind is leaking
Your fear is grinding
Proving you are alive
Of all the domes we saw in life
So many will collapse
And all it's left are only stones

Eastern sun bathe my frightened bones
A lot like love
A lot like love
Eastern sun bathe my frightened bones
A lot like love
A lot like love

I believe in E.T.
Martian U.F.O.
In a crop circle I want to find
The way home
