Deûle / France

Formed at the end of 2020 in the grayness of the river banks from which the band takes its name, Deûle depicts our existential wandering in the constant strain of our urban lives. 

The gray, foggy and threatening city is the backdrop for this wandering, embodied here by the city of Lille, from which Deûle draws its inspiration and imagery.
Deûle plays Synth Doom, a dark Noise Rock with strong Black Metal, Indus and Doom accents, with a sound shaped by weirdo synths and synthetic bass. The strident guitar and drums, topped off with electronics and cymbals, create a sound overhung by a voice that ranges from fragility to heartbreak and madness.

After releasing a demo single in November 2021, the band played their first shows in Lille (La Malterie, La Brat Cave) before releasing a 4-track demo in July 2022 with a release party at La Bulle Café, followed by a 5-date mini-tour in France and the Netherlands in October with Iskandr (NL) and Lassolas (Fr).

Deûle has recorded its first EP in February 2023 at La Malterie, to be released before the end of 2023, and is determined to support it on the roads of Europe starting this fall with 10 shows in France, Spain and Portugal with Wyatt E.

Besides this the trio also started a collaboration with the Auvergne based duo Lassolas, called “Ladeûlas”, an album has been created and recorded along 2 residences at Raymond Bar in Clermont-Ferrand then at La Malterie in Lille, finalized with a presentation concert on January 6th 2024.

After a European Tour in March 2024 with Morvigor, allowing the band to perform in Hungary, Austria, Poland, Germany and Netherlands, and also a few festivals appearances (Rock in Bourlon, Toxoplasmose), Deûle will release the second half of “Deûle” in October 2024 and will then go on tour in Europe for 2 weeks.
