NEO NOIRE is the name of the new band founded by rock- and metal-masterminds Thomas Baumgartner (Ex-GurD, Erotic Jesus, Undergod) and Frederyk Rotter (Zatokrev, The Leaving, Crown). The lineup of the furious swiss rock outﬁt is completed by Franky Kalwies (ex-Disgroove) and David Burger (ex-Slag in Cullet).
In autumn 2016, NEO NOIRE played their ﬁrst gigs and finished the production of their new album ELEMENT, which will be released worldwide through Czar of Revelations on May 5th 2017.
In cooperation with Raphael Bovëy at MyRoom Studios, they created a musical monster that already enjoys big interest by fans and media. On their debut album NEO NOIRE impress with mixing dierent syles from alternative and post/psychedelic rock with metal and at the same time bridge the gap between these genres.
The band celebrates their very own form of hybrid rock in a way that recalls the golden age of bands like Samshing Pumkinpins or Jane’s Addiction in the 90s - but without all the gaudiness these bands were trapped in while awe-inspiring transferred to the present day.
