Trespassers W - Koala And Other Metamorphoses
After 2006 it was thought Trespassers W belonged to the past. Individual members chose their own path and singer Cor Gout intensified his career as a writer of poetry, short stories, essays and (in 2021) a novel. Being the musician that he is, he surrounded some of his books with music.
But blood appeared to be thicker than water, and in 2014 Trespassers W rose from its ashes with the one-sided lp One Sided Love Affair (2014), followed by the 7” Stowaway ep (2016) and the CD Ferrageau, an epic poem written by Cor Gout and put to music by Lukas Simonis and Frans Friederich. And, believe it or not, in those awkward Corona days they managed to record this new album: Koala And Other Metamorphoses. Considering that since 2006 Trespassers W metamorphosed several times, but through the years the band never disappeared. On the contrary: it changed back into the elusive band they have always been.
