PAPIER TIGRE (France)

Special guests:SUBS & IDH

Papier Tigre (pronouce “Papyeah Teegrr”), a 3 piece rock band from France, understands that a relevant song need not exclude it from having a raw power: their music is firmly entrenched in the tradition of inventive, challenging punk bands like Fugazi or The Ex.

Papier Tigre’s sound is built around pounding tribal drums that propel each song forward with ruthless efficiency. But above all, Papier Tigre is a somehow tireless touring band.

Since their first tour in China (January 2008), they already played a commanding total of more than 200 shows (and counting) in Europe, South America and United-States. The band has also had the opportunity to share stages and internationals tours with Battles, Sleeping People, Why?, Dalëk, The Buzzcocks, Radio 4 including an outstanding performance at the ATP festival curated by Explosions in The Sky in the UK.

They will touring this winter in Japan and China to present their second album ‘The Beginning And End Of Now’ (released by Wangba Records in China). The danceable energy and intelligent song writing have evolved into making Papier Tigre one of the most significant new rock acts to discover.

This is art punk, but at it’s most primal.

They will proudly share the stage of Yugong Yishan with Subs, one of the most influential Chinese punk band and the post-punk duo IDH (Illusion Division by the Hand), from Inner Mongolia, will open the night with their hypnotic and dark compositions
