about

THE GATHERING are set to return with their beautiful 10th studio album 'Disclosure'!

The album (CD/Vinyl/Digital Download) will be released on the band’s own Psychonaut Records 12-09-12.

The digital version comes with a colourfull pdf booklet with lyrics and credits, a band picture and the full videoclip of 'Heroes For Ghosts' directed by Marcus Moonen! (mp4)

Disclosure is The Gathering’s most personal soundscape they’ve ever made. A great marriage between electronic and organic sounds and colourfull and diverse songs. It’s simply impossible to describe this new album in a few words. Keyboard player Frank says: “It’s for sure our most personal album we ever made, lyrically but also musically”.
“We tried a lot of new things, like harmony singing” he says. “ We stayed close to ourselves, working on long epic songs, which we love to work on knowing it is one of our strongest points. We took all the time to cristalize all ideas, not forgetting to experiment. We are incredibly proud of this album!”.

Track Name: Paper Waves
PAPER WAVES

Music: F. Boeijen
Lyrics: S. Wergeland


Sun comes out - Wakes me up
Wanna sleep, need to sleep

Saw your face - In my dreams
Fade away, far away

Fade away, fade away

You took your time - Passing by
Smiles and tears - No one cares

Had you once - Now you’re gone
Want you here, Need you near

Dreams and life it seems
Are crushing boundaries in me
Paper waves and seas - Ride the tide with me

Need to see - You’re not far from me
I’m breaking time - Crossing lines

I start to run - to catch the sun
from falling down - and burn this town

I try to reach - You slip away
Can’t you stay - Please just stay

Cold and warmth collide
Turning dark and light, inside
Nights we over fly - All logic gone awry

To know we might not meet again, I hardly bare to look at you
In all this mess we don’t complain, we kind of always knew
Track Name: Meltdown
MELTDOWN

Music: F. Boeijen & R. Rutten
Lyrics: S. Wergeland & F. Boeijen

(I)

It’s time to leave - this eerie sound
I cared but failed - the ones I love
I guess its just - what comes around

We try to bend - but then it breaks
What kind of mind - makes these odd shakes
I can't believe - it ends all here

You pull me down

You always failed

You pull me down - I fake a laugh - I sway
You broke my heart – I fell so hard always
Because of you I’m still afraid today

It’s time to leave - this eerie sound
I cared but failed - the ones I love
I guess its just - what comes around

You pull me down

You pull me down - I fake a laugh - I sway
You broke my heart – I fell so hard always
Because of you I’m still afraid today
Because of you I’m still afraid today

(II)

I will not give you what you think that you earn from me
I will not make the same mistakes you always made
I tried to show you that I cared although you always failed
I was too young to have known better - better than you

You could have kept all those stories to your self

I tried to show you that I cared although you always failed
I was too young to have known better - better than you
Track Name: Paralyzed
PARALYZED

Music: F. Boeijen & R. Rutten
Lyrics: S. Wergeland


Say my name

Say my name
Your anger’s on fire

Will it ever be the same, If I came back to stay
and if we started all over again,
What difference will it make to you

Will it all remain the same, Will you ever fight again,
will you stop confusing me with all your principles
There’s no excuse for your abuse
I hope you understand, I hope you won’t pretend

I can’t believe I had to go through all of this with you,
I didn’t believe I’d last this long
What difference will it make to you
I hope you understand, I hope you won’t pretend

Say my name – don’t try to hold back
There is no price for all your attacks

Given that you had no one
Given that you’ll be alone
Given that nobody cares for you

Say my name – don’t try to hold back
Your fence made up of ruins and walls
Track Name: Heroes For Ghosts
HEROES FOR GHOSTS

Music: R. Rutten & F. Boeijen
Lyrics: S. Wergeland

(I)

Fading falling
Slow winds breaking soundscapes
And waves of velvet sweeping
Into me

You moved all that was in my world
And showed me all the new colours
In my universe where storms run

Falling, falling, falling, fall into me
I hear echoes of my speech
And I see shadows of my walk
I feel the past
I always look backwards

Fighting, floating
Tasting blood in my mouth
Ancient damp painting ruins
Feel the rising chill

I listened to the sound of your airs
We’re watching stone saints fall over
While the black crows will be taking to the sky

Falling, falling, falling, fall into me
I hear echoes of my speech
And I see shadows of my walk
I feel the past
I always look backwards

(II)

My heart is drifting through all shades of green
My head is thinking through meadows of the sea
Lonely as I am

Expanding the scene where I've never (ever) been
A promise at last to call back the past
To finish off with you - I'm finishing off with you

Sliding down
Track Name: Gemini I
GEMINI I

Music: F. Boeijen
Lyrics: S. Wergeland


On the day that you woke me up from our dream to your nightmare
I didn’t know it was possible to feel so alone being with you
I tried to move, but you glued me to your side, with all that you gave me
Did you catch the moon together

When I saw the look upon your face
I knew we had lost precious hours through our days

Did her skin feel as soft as you always said mine are to your fingers?
Did her eyes look as deep into your soul as you always said mine did

Hunting down all my strength to reveal that clouds have appeared for regression
I tried to move but you’ve glued me to your side with all that you gave me
Will I find my way home

When I saw the look upon your face
I knew we had lost precious hours through our days
Track Name: Missing Seasons
MISSING SEASONS

Music: F. Boeijen
Lyrics: S. Wergeland


I slide around on silver wings
I long for air as I strive for solid grounds

This space I have coloured with life and faith
These smiles and tears I’ve gathered from joy and rage

Hear the rain
Fear the shame
I feel the pain

See the rain
Am I insane
Am I to blame

I feel my thoughts go everywhere
Hung up on walls
Tuning in and fading out

This space I’ve coloured with life and faith,
These smiles and tears I’ve gathered from joy and rage

I see you tried
To say goodbye
I just sighed

You denied
To save your pride
You just lied

I hear your voice calling
I see your faith falling

This space I’ve coloured with life and pain,
These tears and smiles I’ve gathered from joy and rain
Track Name: I Can See Four Miles
I CAN SEE FOUR MILES

Music: R. Rutten & F. Boeijen
Lyrics: S. Wergeland


Whatever you do
Whatever you say

Every time I’m here
and every time you’re near
Those echoes keep growing

I shut my eyes
I closed my mouth

Whatever you did

I shut my eyes
I closed my mouth

unsteady feet on our parkway
your finger on our door bell
the walls are getting closer in here

the shadow of dependence
fills the hall with dusty air
creeping up on my innocence
and the loss of your care
Track Name: Gemini II
GEMINI II (reprise)

Music – F. Boeijen
Lyrics – S. Wergeland


Did her skin feel as soft as you always said mine are to your fingers?
Did her eyes look as deep into your soul as you always said mine did?
Did you catch the moon together?

When I saw the look upon your face
I knew we had lost precious hours through our days

On that day that you woke me up from our dream to your nightmare
I didn’t know it was possible to feel so alone being with you
Will I find my way home?

When I saw the look upon your face
I knew we had lost precious hours through our days

When I tried to move aside
I found you’ve glued me to your side
I knew we had lost precious hours
