JOY / DISASTER, currently composed of Nico (vocals / lead guitar), Simon (rhythm guitar / vocals), Soupa (bass / vocals) and Julien (drums) formed in France in 2005.
Since their inception, the group has captured the attention of the press and media with their post-punk revival. Their titles quickly became successful in the underground scene and has been played throughout the world by alternative DJs, which has led to the creation of a number of fan clubs in Chile, Peru, England, and most recently in Lithuania and Argentina.
Over time, J / D has steadily improved its sound personality from powerful punk roots, aggressive guitar riffs and dynamic vocals resonate much more melodic and mature. Depth, low voice with a hint of metallic guitar riffs and stretched providing a sound completely new.
Despite their change of style, fans will surely be pleasantly surprised as the group continues to be active in the field of post-punk.
With their recently released EP (February 2011), "PRIMARY CARE" JOY / DISASTER went to the next level: a melody sophisticated and professional, very emotionally charged.
J / D has played in more than 15 countries (over 300 concerts), sharing the stage with artists such as The Chameleons, Pink Turns Blue, Gene Loves Jezebel, 45 Grave, Cinema Strange, Norma Loy, Frank The Baptist, Paradise Lost, Combichrist, Suicide Commando, Covenant, Front 242, etc. Das Ich. Wave Gotik Treffen (DE), The Night Of The warehouse Festival (BE), Drop Dead Festival (CZ), Castle Party (PL), Moonlight Festival (IT), Graveyeard Fest (Pt) are just some of the festivals, where thousands of people attended the vibrant spectacle delivered by the French quartet. Dynamic performance and charming as it is live that the group comes into its own thanks to its proximity to the public and the presence of Nico, who proves to be a charismatic frontliner.
