Alcest Parts Ways With Bassist Fursy Teyssie

French metal band Alcest has issued the following update regarding changes to their lineup:

"After having crossed Europe and North America with Alcest unfortunately Fursy will not be able to keep on playing bass live due to a lack of time. I guess we will play again together when he will start making concerts with Les Discrets, I can't wait for that."

"A new bass player already joined us, Indria (from Lonesoul, Brutal Rebirth, ex-Peste Noire).
He will be a part of the Alcest live line-up from the next shows we will do, in Finland."

"Otherwise I am already working on the next album, which will be recorded in january-february 2011."

More Bands Announced For Damnation Festival

Damnation Festival veterans Anaal Nathrakh will return to lay waste to Leeds this year for the sixth installment of the UK festival. They'll be joined by French experimental duo Alcest, the synth driven mathcore of Rolo Tomassi, and Fukpig, who make their Damnation debut after a performance at Deathfest earlier this year. The latest additions join the already confirmed The Dillinger Escape Plan and reformed Earthtone9 with many more bands to be announced across three stages.

Festival director Gavin McInally commented: "No band - not even the mighty Carcass - has been requested to return to Damnation Festival by the fans as often as Anaal Nathrakh so it's a pleasure, and a relief, to be able to make that happen. In contrast to the aural chaos of Nathrakh, Alcest will bring a touch of French sophistication to proceedings with their haunting, black metal inspired shoegaze. Rolo Tomassi are one of the rising stars of the current UK metal scene and it's great to be able to host their energetic live show this year. As for Fukpig, well the devastation at Deathfest is responsible for their return!"

Les Discrets Signs with Prophecy Productions

Les Discrets, the solo project founded by Fursy Teyssier (Alcest, Amesoeurs) in 2003, steps forth from its Myspace existence into the light of day.

"'Les Discrets' (engl.: the discreet ones) are those creatures that live in nature and who bring nature to life, the ones who make the leaves move, who put dew on the flowers each morning, who throw the pollen in the air ... That's a parallel life that we are not able to see, but that many of us can feel. The project's concept is pervaded by this perception of nature as well as my existential questions, especially about the feelings of love and death, as I always found a parallel between nature and human life and love," Fursy outlines the concept of Les Discrets.

Les Discrets has just signed a five-album contract with Prophecy Productions. The release of the project's as-yet-untitled debut album is tentatively scheduled for autumn 2009.

Amesoeurs Completes New Album

France’s AMESOEURS (featuring Neige of ALCEST and award winning animation filmmaker Fursy Teyssier of LES DISCRETS) has completed work on their debut album, simply titled “Amesoeurs.”

Amesoeurs' self-titled debut full-length is being released in North America by Profound Lore (Code666 in Europe), following the band’s highly praised and acclaimed 2007 “Ruines Humaines” EP.

Formed by Neige and vocalist Audrey Sylvain in 2004, Amesoeurs is a bleak, violent, melancholic, suffocating, desolate vision, one brimming with negativity and despair. Through their music, Amesoeurs portray a world of urban decay, a lifeless wasteland and a dark realm that becomes all too real in an age of social decay.

By mixing elements of harsh melancholic black metal, post-punk and ‘80s new wave influenced heavily by acts like JOY DIVISION, early CURE, and DEPECHE MODE, “Amesoeurs” is an album that mixes elements for each of the aforementioned genres into one mind-numbing and unrelenting sonic journey where each song translates into a different expression which all weave together.

The tracklisting for “Ameoeurs” is as follows: More...
