2e ALBUM DE CHROMB!

 

Born in 2008 in Lyon (France), CHROMB! is a quartet playing electric chamber music targeting emotive adults and insane kids.

 

CHROMB! owes a lot to John Zorn, King Crimson, Mats Gustafson and Melt Banana but prefers originality to discount tribute. The band allows itself everything, from brutal noise to pop songs, and keeps on melting Dada spirit and meticulousness.

 

 

 

 

Camille Durieux - Piano, synths

Guillaume Gestin - Drums

Lucas Hercberg - Bass

Antoine Mermet - Voice, alto sax, delay, synths

(from december 2013,  Leo Dumont is taking the place of Guillaume Gestin)

 

 

We released our first album in 2012 (you can taste it HERE), followed by more than fifty gigs in France, Italy, Spain and Belgium, opening for Deerhunter, Mombu, The Oscillations, Young Marble Giants... on many different stages, from big festivals (Dancity, À Vaulx Jazz, Riddim Collision) to independant jazz clubs, alternative squats, theatres, and fields, next to super-great french bands (Ultra Zook, Kouma, Poil, SEC, Mucho Tapioca, Herr Geisha and the Boobs and many more...)

OUR SECOND ALBUM WILL BE OUT IN FEBRUARY 2014 but you can already pre-order your copy (Vinyl, Cd or Digital) on this website !

 

Since it started, CHROMB! commissioned its artworks from Benjamin Flao, big/tender french comic illustrator made of flesh and genius, who released most of his works at Glénat and Futuropolis.

 

In 2012, CHROMB ! received the Young Audience Award at the Jazz(s)RA contest, but still, CHROMB ! is not a proper jazz band, it constantly steals elements to electric/improvised/bizarre musics to build a dense and original sound. Ok dude ?

Anyway, after playing many gigs, we were invited to isolate ourselves two weeks in Saint-Claude (France), surrounded by mountains and with nothing to do but recording a new album with our beloved sound-engineer Jérôme Rio.

This second LP has no name yet (to be honest, we already have some stupid ideas...) and will be out

in February 2014! You can pre-order your copy from now and be sure to receive everlasting love from us.

Allocation of funds

 

The album is recorded but the mixing is in progress. The money we'll get from now is to pay the mastering, a part of the pressing (Vinyl and Cd), and to cover the costs of shipping and promotion. So far, CHROMB! is an independant band, releasing its music by itself. It works thanks to an audience made of sick music lovers and curious neophytes.
