Hangman’s chair is living a new life cut up in 3 distinct arcs.
2009, Leaving Paris inks the rebirth of a band, of a group of friends musically in sync. 2012, Hope//Dope//Rope is a confirmation of spirit.
Hangman’s chair keeps maturing, forever drowned with Paris’ moods. Despair, solitude and violence share the stage with beauty, symbiotic loves and the other violence.
End of 2015, This is not supposed to be positive is released through Musicfearsatan. 2016, Hangman’s chair occupies the pages of magazines and webzines (New noise, Noi- sey, …), and seals the deal with around 40 shows, imposing their style onto the Roadburn’s and Hellfest’s stage.
Alone in their world, alone in Paris and Paris unique in itself: Hangman’s chair now has no counterpart. Acid bath, Crowbar or Alice In Chains now are references put to rest.
New festival appearances lined up for 2017, a split EP with Japanese sludge legends Green- machine, and a new album Banlieue Triste rounded up for 2018 : whatever Hangman’s chair transforms into now, it’s roots will lie around the corner of an alley, in between two parisian bars or deep down the Seine river. These monsters’ kids will cry their despair.
There are no shows announced yet.
