PALAIS IDEAL appeared out of nowhere in December 2016 with the video to their first ever track “Crossfade / Dissolve”. This was soon followed by a four track limited edition 10” white vinyl EP on Dark Vinyl Records. They gained immediate attention from worldwide radio shows and signed to booking agencies in The Netherlands (GoMuSic), the UK (8ball) and Germany (FFM). Following their first stage appearance a few months later, supporting WIRE, they continue to play numerous venues in The Netherlands and abroad. In December, they will be touring with Clan of Xymox. On 17 February, Palais Ideal will present their debut album during a show with Clan of Xymox at the Effenaar in their home town Eindhoven. Live performances will continue throughout 2018, including several festivals such as Synthetic City, London. Palais Ideal's high-energy songs are constructed from fragments of post-punk and new wave. They use vintage synths, guitars and equipment to create an authentic early 80s sound. Like contemporary bands as Editors, She Past Away, Lebanon Hanover, Trentemøller and Ikon, they draw inspiration from works by The Cure, New Order, The Sound and the Sisters of Mercy. As musicians and producers, both members have worked on projects for independent and major labels and toured extensively. They have also collaborated in their previous bands with mem- bers of Bauhaus, Tuxedomoon, Christian Death, The Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Clan of Xymox and Swans. A new video clip for their track “Invisible Eye” is currently in production and will be revealed in December 2017. New wave music for emotional engagement, intellectual stimulation, energetic dancing and nostalgic enjoyment!
