BIO | THIS IS WHO WE ARE

Its music is powerful, yet intimate. Wistful, danceable, catchy synth lines, Gregorian choirs, punky guitars, haunting arps and lyrics that really have something to say. All these things are echoes from the 80s that can be found back within the music of La Lune Noire.

Inspired by the likes of Gary Numan, Front 242, Killing Joke, Depeche Mode and early Simple Minds, La Lune Noire reminds you to the new wave era, but have created an authentic and modern sound of their own.

Albums

In 2009 they released their debut album “Nitrogen” on their own Svinx Records label. An album where cancer and loss of family and friends are the main themes.

In 2011 their second album “Exster” was released, receiving very positive critics in magazines like dark Entries, Peek a Boo and Side Line Magazine.

The former studio band then turned their eyes to the stage. Touring alternative festivals like Summer Darkness, BLACK-OUT Fesitval, Winterborn and Seawave and supporting bands like Clan of Xymox and VNV Nation, the band has now a show which you donnot want to miss.

The album “Echoland” was released on February the 1st 2014. More scary, more spooky, but still finding the right balance between moody songs and uptempo EBM.

And on October the 20th 2018 La Lune Noire released their latest album “Dictator”. An album on witch singer and copywriter Victor  is not afraid to put the world under a critical magnifying glass. The music is once more powerfull in the previous albums. Especially live on stage!

La Lune Noire is here to haunt you !
