Anneke van Giersbergen's new progressive Metal band Vuur released their much-anticipated debut album, 'In This Moment We Are Free - Cities' on On October 20th and the album entered the Dutch Album Top 100 at number 2, Anneke's highest-ever chart position.

The band are currently on tour in Europe as main support to Epica and have just added a string of headlining tour dates for February, including five dates in the UK following on from the one-off London date on 9th December which you can read all about right here.
