Biography

Dirty punk powered by raw synth hooks and battered dance machine beats, Team Robespierre are ringleaders of Brooklyn's DIY dance party scene, one that stands as a model for the mayhem brewing in basements and warehouses across America.

The Team mashes 80s new wave and 90s hardcore into a dance-ready hybrid that comfortably shares stages with bands as diverse as Dan Deacon, Japanther, An Albatross, Leftover Crack, Parts And Labor, Best Fwends, USA Is A Monster and Kylesa. Having already embarked on three tours in 2007 and recently enlisting a drummer for their complex electro-punk arrangements, the Team felt the timing was right to record an album's worth of material.

With the help of Colin Marston (Orthrelm, Ghengis Tron, Stay Fucked), Team Robespierre spent most of their summer recording while playing as many dance parties as possible. And after IMPOSE president Derek Evers saw them play one such show earlier this spring, he ended up so drenched in beer and human sweat that he had to sign them.

Though they formed in Brooklyn during the winter of 2006, the members of Team Robespierre all grew up in similar punk rock scenes in New York, Denver, Minnesota, Texas, Poland and Jersey, playing in bands like Thulsa Doom, Morning Glory and Hipster Bloodbath. But as Rex, Tom, Ty, Mike and Jim got older, their record collections expanded into noise, indie, electro and new wave. And while all (and none) of these genres might influence their sound, what comes across most when seeing these guys is their raw energy and unwillingness to separate themselves from the crowd. The Team will be bringing this energy to a town near you.
