Former Gathering/Devin Townsend Vocalist Anneke van Giersbergen Premieres “My Mother Said” Music Video

Los Angeles, CA – Dutch singer Anneke van Giersbergen has premiered a new video for “My Mother Said”. The song is from her critically acclaimed latest album ‘Drive’, which will be released in the US on October 15, 2013. The video was directed by fellow Dutchman Raymond van Olphen, the photographer also responsible for ‘The Road To Drive’, an access-all-areas look at the journey she went on to craft her fifth solo studio album.

Anneke had the following to say about the video, “This is a very personal song for me. The lyrical content is inspired by talks I had with my parents as a young adult, but it’s also a ballad of parental affection. That’s why we used some old 8mm footage of me as a baby and as a young child.”

Anneke is also pleased to announce that she will be taking part in the first annual Progressive Nation At Sea 2014, which is due to take place between the 18th and 22nd February. The cruise also includes frequent collaborator Devin Townsend, as well as Transatlantic, Spock’s Beard, King’s X and many more. For more information and tickets, check out
