about

A primarily instrumental post-rock band hailing from the medieval city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands. Their music is the product of curiosity and thus leads to their deliberately explorative sound which always aims to express an idea or evoke a certain feeling.

The foundation of A Fool’s Errand was laid in 2011 after a group of five friends wanted to explore music further mostly through long jam sessions. The line-up changed throughout the years as did the sound of the band, with Willem Schuurmans (guitar) and Alwin van der Ven (bass & trumpet) as the core of the band. Eventually, in 2014, they found a perfect match in Albert Schuurmans (brother of Willem) as a drummer, mostly remaining a trio. With the addition of Fabian Voskuil on guitar in 2017 a group of like-minded musicians found each other that shared a more common ethos towards music. This was the start of the current A Fool’s Errand where instead of ever evolving songs, more songs were set in stone. This led to their first EP ‘Asfaltpuin / Foxboy’ in 2017 and their debut album ‘Gravitas’ in 2019.

Track Name: Make Waves
Lights are out
No one around
As I escape time

Something so pure
Rains from the sky
Can’t you feel it?

A sound in the distance
A breeze of fresh air
Pulls me away

Fast as a leaf
Tumbling down
When you catch me

Does anyone know
How far we will swim
How deep will we sink?

Right to remember
Left to create
As we make waves

When will we know
How to let go
What we will be?

When will they see
The water in me?

Falling like snowflakes
Up and away
Can’t you see them?
They show us the way

But I’m just running
I’m just swimming
I’m just drowning

When will we know
How to let go
How to be free?

When will you see
The water in me

A fool for believing
It’s all written down
Where we end
We’ll begin

Eyes closed
It’s okay
The day will come

Eyes open
Let’s make waves
Let’s go home
Track Name: Icarus
Now that it’s done
I can’t sit still
It’s all I’ve been dreaming of and more

Pages to read
Fires to start
Numbers to count
All to crash down my wall

And now that it is done
We go high above the sun
And love there’s no need to stay
Just flow
Just follow

And you
You moved me
You moved me around and around
And you
You moved me
You moved me around and around

But
You’re
Not ready for me

So start walking
Start going, leaving
And be fast
You’ll find the truth soon
And it won’t be good no
Just run and
Free yourself

Yes be scared
It’s going to haunt you
And ruin you
And leave blue

Don’t reach for the sun dear
You’ll melt and disappear
Nobody will find you
Nobody will know

I’m falling I’m falling
Please help me I’m falling

You
You moved me
You moved me around and around
And you
You moved me
You moved me around and around
And you
You you
You moved me

So start walking
Start going
Leaving and
Make it fast

You’ll find the truth soon
And it won’t be good no
Just run and
Free yourself

Yes be scared
It’s going to haunt you
And ruin you
And leave you blue

Don’t reach for the sun dear
You’ll melt and disappear
Nobody will find you
Nobody will know
