Carpenter Brut Announce North American Tour; French Synthwave Outfit Returns After Fall Trek with Ghost

FRENCH SYNTHWAVE OUTFIT RETURN FOLLOWING FALL TOUR WITH GHOST

“Turbo Killer” video, which has been viewed nearly 1.7 million times

Dec. 20, 2016, Not From Paris, France  – Carpenter Brut, the mysterious French synthwave artist, returns to North America this Spring, following a brief 2016 Fall trek with Ghost and a pair of sold out headlining dates (Chicago’s Double Door and San Francisco’s DNA Lounge).

The 14-day outing finds the project, which grows to a trio in live settings, with dates at New York’s Schimanski and Los Angeles’ Union, along with a stop at SXSW. Tickets are on-sale now.

Carpenter Brut draws his influences from ‘80s television shows and synthesizer laden B-movies.  A trio of EPs released from 2012 to 2015 culminated in the full-length album Trilogy (https://carpenterbrut.bandcamp.com/album/trilogy), which was released overseas in 2015 without a proper North American release.  France’s Liberation newspaper said of Carpenter Brut’s music, “Doped to the aggressiveness of metal and often propelled by the same type of electro-disco rhythms inherited from the Italian Giorgio Moroder that likes Justice and Daft Punk, this is fuzzy synthmusic.”

“I like the concept of bands like Ghost or Daft Punk. If anonymity is well kept, it makes the concept strong,” explained Carpenter Brut in an interview with Diabolique Magazine, he also discussed the approach go live performances “We are three people on stage. There is a drummer, a guitarist and I’m on keyboards. We have a visual background of cool and cheesy old school movies.”

In February, Carpenter Brut released the “Turbo Killer” video (https://youtu.be/er416Ad3R1g), leading Bloody Disgusting to say: “The video is basically the coolest grindhouse sci-fi/horror car chase I can remember seeing and it’s enhanced by the incredibly high production value.”
