AMSTERDAM BAND RELEASE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM ‘PREHISTORIC RHYTHM’
– OUT APRIL 7
UK HEADLINE TOUR THROUGHOUT APRIL
Amsterdam band MY BABY are releasing their highly anticipated new album ‘Prehistoric Rhythm’ on April 7th. It hasn’t taken long for Amsterdam-based psychedelic, shamanic trio MY BABY’s swampy blues and funk-inflected sound to cast a formidable spell, taking the world by storm.
Over the past 3 years, Dutch brother-sister-duo Sheik (drums) and Cato van Dyck (vocals) and New Zealand guitarist Daniel “daFreez” Johnston have had their mojo working overtime and are now ready for the release of their third album “Prehistoric Rhythm”. With their new album, the band aim to channel a primal awareness amidst hypnotic beats, shimmering soulful vocals and psychedelic riffs on the back of rootsy blues and dubbed out funk.
Whilst their previous album was awarded a prestigious ‘Edison Award’ for Best Alternative Album, the band takes it a few steps further with their new record and tell us everything will come together during their upcoming club tour.
With their new album, MY BABY tries to create a theatrical and poetic world in which she is looking forspiritual reflection. “In these times of turmoil and this busy and ongoing society that we live in, humankind is searching for a new way to go back to their primal awareness.” Says singer Cato van Dijck. “We want to take the audience on a Shamanic inspired musical journey you have never seen before.”
With their album release show in Amsterdam, MY BABY is starting a European tour that brings the band to 5 countries.

In December 2013, My Baby released their debut album “Loves Voodoo!” and thus started to spread their magical hypnotic voodoo blues beats all around the world – in 2014 the band played gigs at Eurosonic and toured the UK and New Zealand. In the summer of 2015 they toured Europe non-stop to promote their second album “Shamanaid” – playing seven alternative stages at Glastonbury 2015, plus they were chosen by Seasick Steve as the opening act on his April 2015 UK tour. In 2016 MY BABY won an Edison Pop Award, a prestigious music award in The Netherlands, for their album “Shamanaid”, and played a headline tour in the UK.
