SPLEEN UNITED (DK)
Friday 06.07.12 - 02:30 - Arena
The rock band Spleen United seems to have disappeared. From the ashes rises a changed creature. An all electronic, neon-coloured rave band for people who – even on the dance floor – demand a shot of melancholy in the music to get their feet to move.
With School of Euphoria, these depressive young lads of pop throw themselves completely into the arms of electronic dance music that makes the mirror balls spin in synthesized ecstasy.
Their 2012 sound is at the same time light as helium and weighed on by the same depression that gave the band its name.
Spleen United still feels pain deep down inside but the euphoria of dance music has also become a steady partner.
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
