Durant la nuit du 30 septembre, Ventura s’est agrandi d’une petite tête.

En effet, c’est avec un immense plaisir que Ventura annonce la naissance de Félix, fils de Mike, le papa et accessoirement batteur de génie dans Ventura, et Sophie, la maman.

Bienvenu à toi Félix !

On September 30, Ventura has added a cute little head to the lineup.

This is with an incredible pleasure Ventura can announce the birth of Félix, son of Mike, the dad and secondarily the genius drummer of Ventura, and Sophie, the mum.

Welcome to this world Félix!

« Simply the best fucking baby on earth ».


The Shipping News

For once, this won't be a Ventura related note, but it's worth the damn note!

The amazing Shipping News has joined the Africantape roster for Europe, and will release their new album One Less Heartless To Fear on November 16.

Until then, a brand new track, called The Delicate, is available to download on the Africantape digital store, and iTunes.
If you don't feel like giving a tiny bit of your money to own this great track, you can listen to it there, or you can also piss off.

Ventura & David Yow in my pants

If you wanna know how was the whole Ventura featuring David Yow experience, simply click on the following link, sit back, and watch this great video!


David Yow, we salute you!

A big thank you to Mariexxme, Clément Mathon, and Valérie Paillé.


No more David Yow

We all went back home 4 days ago, David back to Los Angeles, and Ventura back to Lausanne.

It has been surely the most incredible 10 days in Ventura's career, and nothing will ever compete with this experience (unless next time, we go to LA and tour California with David).

This is impossible for us to write some sort of tour report, too many memorable moments, too many jokes, too many great conversations...it will all stay in our heads.

David Yow, son of a fighter pilot and a hillbilly, is a great man...in my pants.

Thank you, whoever you are, if you came to see us at one of these 5 shows.
