The Latvian band Double Faced Eels will be the warm-up act for a concert given by the Finnish rock band Sunrise Avenue on 10 May at Sapņu fabrika in Riga.  


The band Double Faced Eels was formed nine years ago and in abbreviated form is often called DFE. It’s notable that DFE’s first major concert took place on 8 May 2007 at Sapņu Fabrika, where their fans not only had the chance to enjoy the “Eels” performing a new concert programme in a show lasting three hours, but also to enjoy a new and explosive level of reality. Over the years, the band has released three albums and is currently working on their fourth album which will be released in the autumn of 2013. As the band’s members themselves emphasise that their biggest challenge was to release their first album “Blue Whale”. As a warm-up act, DFE have performed at a concert given by Avrila Lavigne during The Best Damn Tour, at the concluding Four Shores concert given by Brainstorm in Mežaparks, as well as at Grogyfest – where DFE performed as the warm-up band for The Rasmus.


Commenting on the opportunity to perform together with Sunrise Avenue, one of the members of DFE, Marka, said, “We’re delighted about this offer, because it will be an opportunity to play together with the Finnish musicians on one stage and to return to Sapņu fabrika. We haven’t had the chance to meet the guys from Sunrise Avenue in person, but we remember the songs which are regularly played on Latvian radio stations like Hollywood Hills and Welcome to my life We’ll offer fans attending the concert the songs featured on our club tour programme: “The Bathroom Tour” which we’re currently performing across Latvia – the stage layout will be interesting and we’ve been joined by a fifth member of the band, a computer.”


Sunrise Avenue’s Riga show is taking place as part of the band’s OUT OF STYLE TOUR 2013, which includes songs from their latest (fourth) album Out Of Style. The title song of the aforementioned album Hollywood Hills characterises the essence of the band and made into the German TOP 3. The album “Out of Style” was produced in collaboration with the band’s long-standing partner Jukka Backlund and a new producer Jukka Immonen.
