Founded in 2014, The Erkonauts are one of the most dynamic and hardworking metal bands out of Switzerland today.
In many ways a supergroup with former members of Djizoes:, Sybreed and 7-tone, The Erkonauts strive to pack kick-ass modern power, execution and production with subtle vintage tones and a musical taste that encompasses genres as diverse as metal, rock, punk and progressive.
The Erkonauts released their first album “I Did Something Bad” in the summer 2014, and immediately went on a tour of the US west coast. A few months later, the band toured in Eastern Asia (China, Taïwan) before to conquer the Europe territory.

In 2008, the band released its debut recording with an album called “Crash system control”, following less than two years later by an EP : “What’s going on ?”. Then RedLight made some great appearances on stage before to record two digital singles (“Westbound train / Casanova” & “Magic / A James Bond complex”) both unveiled in 2012.
Six months later, a brand new full-length album saw the light with “Astronauts”.
This is about Rise… This is about musical hybridation. This is about a French three-piece entity mixing in the same original and “romantic” way post-metal, indie-pop & alternative black-metal. A musical project including a real visual ambition with graphic design, art-works and music videos in order to spread a personal vision of romantism.
A few weeks after unveiling an animated music video for the single “About duality”, Rise just unleashed an exclusive world premiere session through PureGrainAudio and Score A/V for a brand new song called “About ‘friends'”. This new track will feature on the debut full-length album by Rise, called “Resilience”, produced by Jochem Jacobs (ex-Textures) and expected on CD & digital in the coming weeks.
… For the record…
Natural evolution of the Andick solo project in 2009, RISE took its firststep during the spring of 2010. Affected by the artistic approach of Aymeric Goutal, it was in a spontaneous way that bassist Julien Bouladoux (also involved with alternative/hardcore/punk band The Prestige), then drummer Tadzio Gottberg decided to ally to his cause.
Borrowing its influences from the broadest musical horizon possible, RISE seeks above all to convey emotions. The power of Rock, the heaviness of Metal and the Classical drama are combined, thus giving birth to a rich and astonishing mixture. The topics approached, halfway between hope and melancholy, are primarily based on the concept of Resilience, dear to the project’s originator. Experiments share, transmission of emotions and vibrations in unison constitute a faithful triptych to RISE.

Three years after the album “Commotion” (2012) and a few months after the “Love” EP (2014), French Electro-rock outfit Ciguë released a few days ago its fourth full-length album called “Ainsi nous sommes”, available right now on limited handmade CD and digital formats through the main legal platforms such as iTunes, Deezer, Spotify, Amazon… In other news, the band also put this new record for full streaming on Bandcamp.

Yann Reversat, guitarist (Norma Loy and several featuring in various bands) and Joanna Louis (classical keyboard background) both created Ciguë in 2006 in order to unleash their creativity in a rock/electro/indus style. Their first two albums (“Swallow the Pain” and “Phobia”) were hailed by the musical business. When they settled in Montpellier, they hired a new drummer, Josian Ribes(self-taught for over 20 years, timekeeper in several goth/metal/prog bands).
After recording the third album “Commotion” (2012), Ciguë added up a new recruit : Marjorie Lelievre, a sensual and soulful singer(former lead in multiple rock and metal projects). The lineup is now more effective and beefier than ever, flipping on stage through their 3 albums, “mixing up the electro rock with industrial / rock atmospheres.

Following a UK mini-tour, French indie-rock quartet from Strasbourg Yeallow released a few days ago its brand new full-length record called “Homebred” for CD and digital through TRY & DYE Records. The album is available right now for full streaming, physical edition on the band’s webstore and the main legal platforms (iTunes, Deezer, Spotify, Amazon…).
…For the record…
The Yeallow guys got together in Strasbourg (France) in 2010.From the beginning, the adventure of these four accomplices with an unusual path, is built around a story of strong friendship where the vital need to make music is the common denominator. Rich and with very different influences, combining jazz, blues, alternative rock and thrash metal paths, the quartet defined its own identity with a very modern sound and catchy riffs of power rock. An personal tone of voice, a guitar drenched in testosterone, an uncompromising bass and drums, the french electro-touch just at the right place.
Their shows propel an hi-energy and explosive cocktail. Immediately spotted by a promoter in the U.S. after the release of their first album – “2891 seconds” – (2010), the group embarked on a tour in the legendary clubs of Los Angeles and San Francisco (Whisky a go-go, Cat Club,…).
In France, they played in all major regional theaters (La Laiterie, Noumatrouff, etc …) then make a stop at the Bus Palladium Paris before leaving for a UK tour in 2012 (Camden Rock, O2 Academy Tower, The Cavern Club, …). Late 2013, Yeallow started to compose again. They came back in 2014 with a new digital single – Clocks – and one year later with their second album : “Homebred”.
French power trio Acid Western describes itself like the furious sons of the desert-rock, spreading a dusty but sexy sound with a drop of mezcal for a saloon dance breaking the rules between stoner-rock and grunge music. Influences by the QOTSA’s “Desert sessions” or the French/US outfit Loading Data, the band imagines its music like a cinematic, fuzzy and initiatic journey among into the American desert.
After a debut EP four years ago (“Off flesh and bones”, 2011), Acid Western just unveiled a brand new EP called “Rampage”, recorded last autumn and available right now on the main digital platforms (iTunes, Deezer, Spotify, Amazon) & full streaming on SoundCloud.
