A power trio founded in Saintes (France) in 2013, Lysistrata appeared as a UFO in France. After two albums (2017 and 2019) and a few marathon concerts all over Europe and even beyond, they established themselves as a sure bet in the revival of the indie scene, the ardor of youth sending the post-hardcore and noise rock labels into a tailspin. In the spring of 2024, Lysistrata unveiled with their third album, Veil, a thoughtful reflective and self-affirming songwriting style. The pop sensibility that existed on Lysistrata has been sublimated and is now self-evident. The fact is, the new album opens with a series of deftly chiseled hits. This is undoubtedly an easier introduction for the general public, but it will also surprise long-time fans. On the  other hand, there is no half-hearted treatment for the more hardcore passages, whose violence has not been hidden and emerges, explosive and fearsome, at the heart of the album. Lysistrata have taken their art to a whole new level, and we can’t wait to see it live!
