The new album is almost done! We are still working out the release details, so no announcement yet, but hopefully soon.

Focusing on the record has been really great, but it's been way too long since we played live. And so we're really happy to announce two gigs in early september:

  • 3 September @ La Zone (Liège, BE) with Kayo Dot and Lodges.
  • 12 September @ Magasin 4 (Bruxelles, BE) with Muscle and Marrow and Father Murphy.

We will play a few songs of the upcoming record at those shows.

More gigs and more news coming soon!

17 Dec 2015

We're glad to announce that we will be entering the studio to record the successor of our eponymous album on December 26th, i.e. next week! To celebrate this, we're offering our previous record for free on Bandcamp until January 1st, so if you don't have a copy yet, now's the time!

More details on the record will be following soon, but what we can say (apart from the fact that we're really excited about it!) is that we are working again with our dear friend Xavier Dromard, that we will record it again at Blend Studio in Switzerland, and that unlike our previous one, we will take our time to work on it and won't rush to have everything done in 10 days. So don't expect a release in January :)

Stay tuned for more details!

We're glad to announce that Gil Chevigné (Thot, Two Kids On Holiday) is our new drummer! We're really thrilled about what he brings to the band, and you should be able to see us live with the new line-up very soon. Welcome Gil!

Let's also take this news opportunity to thank our now ex-drummer Bastien Dupont for the last two years: this has been a great adventure and we wish you great success in your future projects!

We will do some gigs in France (Paris, Besançon, Montpellier, Perpignan, ...) in March and April. See the Shows section.

30 Oct 2013

Sad news: our drummer has hurt his left arm and is in the impossibility to bend it, and therefore to play. We must cancel all shows this week (Perpignan, Besançon, Paris). We're very sorry about that, and very sad, as we were delighted to play these shows.

Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience, especially to Fre & Yann @ Spanked/YellowSharps, Lionel @ L'Ubu and Eric Cooney @ En veux-tu? En v'là!.

We will take the road again as soon as we can. See you real soon.
