Strasbourg, France death-grind quartet Haut&Court will be releasing it's new album "Troffea" on February 2. The album is titled after "Troffea" a woman whose claim to fame was documented by the BBC in 2008 as follows: "Sometime in mid-July 1518, in the city of Strasbourg, a woman stepped into the street and started to dance. She was still dancing several days later. Within a week about 100 people had been consumed by the same irresistible urge to dance. The authorities were convinced that the afflicted would only recover if they danced day and night. So guildhalls were set aside for them to dance in, musicians were hired to play pipes and drums to keep them moving, and professional dancers were paid to keep them on their feet. Within days those with weak hearts started to die."
In anticipation of the new release Haut&Court is offering you a first track titled "Hienes" below.
