The first Chinese band to make a break in the West, Re-TROS released their album last month. Today they announce a return to Europe in support of the iconic Depeche Mode.
Heroes of the Chinese underground rock scene, Beijing-based ‘Rebuilding the Rights of Statues’ have released their genre-spanning post punk inspired album Before The Applause on Modern Sky Entertainment. The first Chinese band to release an album in the west, Re-TROS extoll the virtues of classic independent icons Joy Division, Bauhaus and more, while taking inspiration from contemporaries Battles, Liars and TV On The Radio.
The European arena tour will be accompanied with standalone Re-TROS shows as the band bring their experimental hybrid of post-punk, electronica and art-rock to the UK in November. Their new album and first UK release Before The Applause, crosses the bridge from art school punk into pumping techno clubland and back again, over 9 mature and exquisitely constructed tracks.
