dilemma


Dutch / British melodic and progressive rock

Dutch/British melodic and progressive rock act Dilemma pulled a phoenix stunt on us and has risen from the ashes! For several years the band disappeared from the public eye. But behind the scenes they have been working hard on their new studio album ‘Random Acts Of Liberation’. This gem has been mixed by Rich Mouser (Spock’s Beard, Transatlantic, Neal Morse) and was released in November 2018 via Butler Records/Music On Vinyl.

Dilemma consists of founder and keyboardist Robin Z, drummer Collin Leijenaar ( Neal Morse, Dave Bainbridge, Affector, Kayak)guitarist Paul Crezee and bass player Erik van der Vlis, who all where part of Dilemma since right after the release of debut album Imbroccata in 1995. Last but not least, British guitarist/vocalist/front man Dec Burke (Frost*, Audioplastik, Darwin’s Radio) joined Dilemma in 2017 to finish the recordings of the new album.

A big welcome to the Dilemma family: our new bass player Reinier Siemons! --- Press release --- Dilemma announces new bass player. A new chapter in the Dilemma book: we are excited to announce that the new bass player joining Dilemma is Reinier Siemons. Since graduating from conservatory, Reinier has been working as a session musician and music teacher. He took part in several projects, varying from jazz and blues to heavy metal. Progressive, melodic rock however has always been one of his biggest loves. No wonder Dilemma asked him to audition when the position of bass player in the band became vacant. Because of Reinier’s amazing skills and pleasant personality, the band offered him the job. Dec Burke, vocals & guitars: “Excited to have Reinier on board. With him comes the drive and energy that will push the band forward”. Paul Crezee, guitars: “I’m really looking forward to work with Reinier. His sound is amazing. To let the strings sound like he does is very special, more than welcome on board!” Collin Leijenaar, drums: “I have worked with Reinier before and it’s a real pleasure to see him join this band now. He’s a wonderful guy and musician, so he fits right in.” Robin Z, keyboards: “Wishing our good friend Erik all the best with his other duties, out of sight is not out of heart. And of course more than pleased to see Reinier taking over. An amazing player and fun guy to work with. Really looking forward to this new chapter in Dilemma history.” In the upcoming weeks and months Dilemma will work hard on writing and arranging new material for their new album, which will see the light in 2021. Reinier Siemons, bass: “I’m thrilled and honoured to have been given the opportunity to join Dilemma. Their unique style of progressive music really speaks to me. Looking forward to making some great music with these guys!” Hopefully we’ll see our fans on the road soon. We can’t wait to be back on stage again!
