Totem, our new full length is out now ! We're uploading the whole thing on bandcamp right now, check it out !
it's our new full length and it's made of 9 new songs written between 2011 and
2013, mostly in our beloved practice place at Grrrn Zero in Lyon
before it was shut down... Totem was a hard record to make.... 2 years of writing, arranging, droping,
reworking material were finally worth it ! We took time to develop hypnotic
athmospheres but didn't forget to go straight to the point with more melodic tracks as well .
It's been recorded and mixed in Villeurbanne at
Mikrokosm Studio, close to the Totem subway station, by Benoit Bel in
february 2014... then mastered by Harris Newman at Grey Market Mastering
in Montreal Canada (Goodspeed You Black Emperor, A Silver Mount Zion
Illustrations by the talented Claire Duport. Have a look at her awesome work here
Vinyl version come in a red / black and
white artwork with printed innner sleeve (there are some colored vinyls
and standard black vinyls). Includes a download code.
CDs come in a yellow / black and white artwork.
Totem is now mixed and mastered and the big image above is the cover ! yeah !! it will look AWESOME !
You can stream 2 songs now on our BBBAAANNNDDCCCAAAMMMPPP (does anybody know how to embed the bandcamp player in there ? ) !
We played one of those 2 a couple times live so maybe some of you will remember it. We're really stoked of the songs we recorded, their recording etc... really excited to have this out !
It took us 2 years and a half to have its writing finished
and during that time, we tried new things, discovered tons of amazing
bands who gave us tons of new ideas... so don't expect anything !
Also our good buddy Arnaud Payen took some of his precious time to make that video of "Cours Tolstoï", look at it here, it's great :
Now that all of this is done, we will AT LEAST start to play shows again ! got a couple booked in France so far... hope more will come !

Recording of Totem – our new full length – is done !
Recording took place at Mikroksom studio in Villeurbanne, engineered by Benoit Bel. The mixing and mastering should be done soon, artwork is also on the works.
we're working on new songs to complete our 2nd full length. We have about 9 new ones on the work that we need to finish, put vocals on, replace chords, change drum breaks, adapt bass lines, finish lyrics and play well. We plan to record these in february 2014...
we love those new songs so far and we don't want to screw them up
One new song we used to play that we will record (don't know why the youtube video doesn't appear as usual)
the UK tour was great. Thanks so much to all the people who did shows for us, we really apreciated.
We had a lot of fun and played with great bands every night.
We played a couple shows with Carson Wells from Aberdeen in Scotland and also Plaids from Nottingham and you should check them out because they really rule. Not only they're great guys but they also play well inspired & passionated music...
One more Thank You to Joe for booking this awesome tour is not too much.
