THURNIN: Put ink under deal with Auerbach Tonträger

Added 22 September 2022, 9:27 PM

The blood has hardly dried under the deal that THURNIN have inked with Auerbach Tonträger, and they are already announcing that the label will release the band's forthcoming new album and also re-issue "Menhir" (2021) on CD and also for the first time as a vinyl edition. The previously self-released debut album of the Dutch solo-project from guitarist and vocalist Jurre Timmer is now available through the label's digital channels as well as all common digital service providers. 4

On further news, THURNIN have been added to the billing of Prophecy Fest 2022. Jure Timme will perform an exclusive introductory live set at the "Prophetic Overture" on Thursday, September 29. Festival passes are available at this link: » Prophecy Fest – 29.09.-01.10.2022 – Balve (DE)

THURNIN comment: "I'm thrilled to announce that Thurnin is a now part of the Prophecy roster", mastermind and sole member Jurre Timmer writes. "I have always been very fond of Prophecy as a label and they have some of my favourite releases under there belt. It is an honor to become a part of the family. I am also excited to see where Thurnin will land with all these new possibilities. A very big thank you to everyone, who has ever helped me to reach this point."

Martin Koller replies: "When I first heard Thurnin, it was a no-brainer that Jurre's highly emotive and evocative acoustic music would fit  the artistic direction of Auerbach Tonträger just beautifully", the label's founder writes. "We are therefore thrilled to welcome Thurnin to the family and looking forward to his perfomance at Prophecy Fest!"

Little is know about THURNIN so far. The mysterious Dutch dark folk solo-project is the creation of mastermind and sole musician Jurre Timmer.

Previously Timmer released an album with his death doom project I, FORLORN. He also created 2 albums and 2 EPs for a project under the name of ALGOS. Although his idea to compose an acoustic EP for ALGOS pointed towards the general direction of THURNIN, Timmer decided to start fresh on a clean musical slate and to let his new band develop into its own direction

In January 2021, Timmer emerged seemingly out of the blue from his home studio in the town of Soest by the Dutch city of Amersfoort with a dreamy and richly textured acoustic dark folk album, which according to its maker is inspired by the beauty of nature – as befits its romantic genre. "Menhir" became an instant hit on YouTube that has already passed the milestone of 1 million views.

Currently, THURNIN are preparing for the reissue of "Menhir" and a forthcoming new album.
