French synthwave band THE SACRIFICE have signed to Season of Mist worldwide. The band will release their debut album later this year.
Regarding the signing, THE SACRIFICE comment, “We are honored to announce our signing with Season of Mist, massive thanks for putting your trust in us. The first single, release date and track list of our first album shall be revealed soon!”
Combining 80’s and 90’s electronic music, THE SACRIFICE infuse their sound with references to metal music, pop music, and more, producing a sophisticated sound from disparate elements beyond the limitations of any genre.
THE SACRIFICE was born out of French electronic group PANZER FLOWER, consisting of Patrice Duthoo and Raphaël Glatz. The duo, named ‘Meilleur Espoir Français’ (Best French Hopefuls) by the French music magazine Rock & Folk, are known widely for the 2014 single “We Are Beautiful” featuring Hubert Tubbs (TOWER OF POWER). “We are Beautiful” peaked at number 2 in the French national pop charts and number 1 in the Belgium national charts respectively. This track has been streamed almost 10 million times on YouTube alone. Additionally, PANZER FLOWER’s music has been featured in multiple French national advertisement campaigns, and seen the duo remix artists such as LENNY KRAVITZ and more.
Explosive percussion, soaring synths, bleeding vocals, razor guitars and macabre prose, all influenced by PINK FLOYD, MAYHEM and DEPECHE MODE, THE SACRIFICE are delivering a sprawling musical mosaic, placing this French outfit in a class of their own.
