Late 90s trance act to make a live comeback

Live shows in 2016 follow the release of comeback single 'Anahera' earlier this year, though details are patchy so far

Ferry Corsten has announced that his recently revived Gouryella project will be stepping into the live arena next year. This will presumably involve shows at festivals, though no actual dates have been announced as yet.

Gouryella were originally the duo of Ferry Corsten and Tiesto. Together they released three huge-selling singles round about the turn of the millennium - Gouryella, Walhalla and Tenshi. In 2001 Tiesto left to concentrate on his solo career, and Corsten released one more single, Ligaya, with new partner-in-crime John Ewbank, before calling time on the project in 2002. In May this year, though, Gouryella made a comeback with brand new single Anahera, which topped the Beatport trance chart for several weeks.

Corsten made the announcement via a post on his Facebook page, which said in part: "I've always loved the musical qualities that make up the Gouryella sound, and in the time when so much trance is swaying too far to EDM, I want to bring big melodies back to a scene I've spent my entire career championing. Gouryella will allow me the opportunity to exercise not only my desire to bring back a sentiment to the scene that I think is lacking in some parts, but equally deliver a new live concept that will represent both the music and visuals, as well as enable me to detail further the mysterious naming which has always made up Gouryella and the titles of the singles. I look forward to sharing this experience with you!"

We're sure the worldwide trance massive will be salivating already over this one - we'll bring you more news as soon as we have it.
