Dorre are a four-piece instrumental band with drone, psych, stoner and noise influences out of Leuven, Belgium. Fueled by a pounding rhythm section and ferocious riffs, Dorre has been actively performing within the stoner rock scene since 2008.


Dorre was formed by Adriaan De Raymaeker and Wolf Overloop in 2010. At the time, Adriaan was rehearsing above the Rock Café in Leuven, Belgium with his now defunct band Pektop . Wolf and Adriaan decided to head up and jam, after consuming copious amounts of Dorre , the 10.5% beer they were quickly named after.

In 2013 Erik Heyns joined the line-up as a full fledged band member and compled the sound Dorre was looking for.

The band only played one or two shows per year up until 2015. Dorre decided to become more than a jam band and started writing songs while keeping the spirit of their music intact.

2015 was a busy year for Dorre. In March they played a show with Eagle Twin and Uzala at Magasin 4  in Brussels. In May, Dorre released a digital download demo, "One Mic Garage Takes ", consisting of 3 long tracks. In June they were headlining a local festival, Mestfest. After a series of successful shows, they decided to release their debut EP, "One Collapsed at the Altar ".

In 2016, Dorre played 6 shows in the UK with dates in Cambridge, Wakefield, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Sheffield and London. In June they share the stage with Farflung in Leuven's own Sojo  and in November they are heading back to the UK to play 3 shows, among which a set at Somatic Festival in Wakefield.
