    MakeBelieve is formed in 2006 by Joey Dussel (vocals) and Pim de Mol (drums). The five boys are all from Groningen, a dutch city. They're working hard to reach the dutch poprock scene.

    Bands like Paramore, Boys Like Girls and The Maine are their idols, but MakeBelieve has it's own catchy sound pulled in their poprock songs. It doesn't take long before they start touring. Young dutch people really like MakeBelieve, so they're asked to play in Paradiso, during the festifal Stofpop
    A month before the big show in Paradiso the guitar player and the bass player both decide to quit. Pim and Joey use the popular social media Hyves (similar to facebook) to find new bandmembers. Many people wanted to play in MakeBelieve. Joey and Pim choose Marvin Fockens (guitar) and Jasper Mijwaard (bass). When the new MakeBelieve meet each other for the first time, they only have a week before the show in Paradiso...

    A few things MakeBelieve has achieved in 2010:
    - 3FM Serious Talent,
    - A show at Sziget and at Lowlands (two festifals)
    - A successfull tour through the Netherlands
    - Their videoclips are seen many on TV and the internet
    From the Start has been viewed about 205.000 times and the videoclip from Another Night At The Disco reched the #1 position in de TMF NL Chart

    The band decide to release the album City Lights in three (cheaper) parts, so that their fans could afford themselfes to buy it and because it would give the band more time to write more (and better) songs. The album also stays longer in the atttention of their fans, because of the 3 parts.

    The band has gone a new way: the things they writ about are more serious and grown-up. The songs are also a little bit slower and more quiet than before.
    MakeBelieve has signed a management contract with CMC (München). They will publish the album in Germany, Swiss and Austria
