The Gentle Storm have released a live video featuring a performance of their track Brightest Light.

It was filmed in the Netherlands during their first run of dates, as Anneke van Giersbergen and her live lineup toured to promote debut album The Diary.

Although it was co-created by Arjen Lucassen, he only made a handful of appearances alongside the band, saying: “I don’t see myself as a performer, because I’m not very good at it, and I get stage fright and stuff like that.”

The Gentle Storm play three shows in South America this weekend, followed by dates in Spain, the USA and the Netherlands. Van Giersbergen launches a solo acoustic tour of Europe later this month.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
