Brainstorm returns to UK and Ireland in April, 2020.
The concert song list will include all songs that mark the band's history. “Lidmašīnas“ is a major hit for BrainStorm beginnings, “My Star” has reached the “Eurovision” finals, and “Maybe” has changed the band's path internationally. “Nothing last forever”, “Wonderful day”, “A Day before tomorrow”, “Colder”, “Thunder Without Rain”.
“Over the years we have made it clear that this is our place. Together we return to our roots: music, friendship, joy. It's what takes a huge part of our lives and helps us create new things," says Renars Kaupers, the leader of the band.
The BrainStorm phenomenon is the convergence of three language cultures: Latvian, Russian and English. The band from a small Eastern European country is becoming a global phenomenon that eliminates the difficulty of translating song lines from one language to another. Their work with legendary Anton Corbin, author of iconic photos of Depeche Mode, U2, RHCP and Metallica, gives BrainStorm an international recognition index.
This summer BrainStorm played at the Ural Music Night, Life Fest and Chernozem festivals and hosted a unique rooftop home festival in St. Petersburg. In July 2019 in Latvia BrainStorm completed the “Skārdu bungu tūre” (“Wonderful day”) tour, which gathered together more than 150,000 visitors in 6 cities, what is an absolute record for the band and the Baltic States.
“Every morning starts with a warm-up and coffee with honey. We go out and try to notice the most simple things: birds screaming over Riga, summer, trees full of apples. Concert is a part of life that happens every day. We get ready every day and look forward to the new shows across the world,” says Renars Kaupers.
BrainStorm has released 22 albums in various languages, but the band's musical peak is always live performances.
