La Colonie de Vacances

La Colonie De Vacances (LCDV) return in early 2022 with their debut album - a record more than a decade in the making.

La Colonie de Vacances originally began as a live experiment in 2010.

In the grounds of Tours' Castle, for the Festival Rayons Frais, four cult names from the French underground set up on opposite sides of the courtyard. Papier Tigre, Marvin, Pneu and Electric Electric had shared many concert-bills over the years, but never at the same time. What resulted was so successful and caused such a buzz across the French live scene, that more than a decade later the entity now known as La Colonie De Vacances has become one of the most innovative, celebrated and mind-blowing live experiences on the French (or any other) music circuit. A truly original, exhilarating, roaring musical hydra.

In the subsequent decade, the line-up and format of LCDV has evolved: new faces have arrived and those four original subsets are now spread out, shuffled between the four stages. However the Quadrophonic concept remains the same: audiences stand in the centre, open mouthed, chasing riffs and synths, rolling beats and cascading lights around 360 degrees. Roles are inverted. The group looms over you on all sides; the music swallows you; jostles you back and forth; spins you around.

With a set-up as complicated as theirs, you can forgive LCDV for taking their time to get it right in the studio. The album and their new live set features an entirely new repertoire of music written specifically for the expansive format of the current line-up.

The Band currently lines up as:
Éric Bentz: guitar, vocals / Grégoire Bredel : drums / Julien Chevalier : guitar, bass, synth / Frédéric Conte : guitar, synth / Nicolas Cueille : synth, percussion, vocal / Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy : drums, vocals / Arthur de La Grandière : guitar, bass / Rachel Langlais : synth, vocal / Pierre-Antoine Parois : drums / Éric Pasquereau : guitar, vocals /Vincent Redel : drums /Jérôme Vassereau : guitar

Coming from the reunion of four bands from the French noise rock scene (Electric Electric, Marvin, Papier Tigre, Pneu), La Colonie de Vacances has won over the public at many festivals during its ten years of existence. A decade needed for the emergence of a long-awaited debut album, ECHT. If the compositions are nourished by the multiple influences of the 12 artists, in electronic and contemporary music in particular, rock energy undoubtedly remains the common base of the group.
