Indochine: Memoria

A new video by Indochine, with the release of the track Memoria ahead of the release of their next album.

The song's been about for a few weeks, but the video clip has only just surfaced.

Indochine are something of an alternative rock institution in France, having survived and grown from the new wave scene of the early 80s to an act that not only fill arena sized venues, but continue to release interesting work.

Their debut album came out in 1982, and established a reputation on the strength of their songs and theor live performances. Their 1985 album 3 sold over 750,000 copies.

The band had something of a second wind after the turn of the millennium, with the Paradize album released in 2002. The band marked the 10th anniversary of the release with concerts at le Zénith in Paris.

Their last album La République des Meteors came out in 2009, their subsequent tour saw them playing at the Stade de France in 2010

Indochine release their new album - their 12th - Black City Parade in February 2013. They have also confirmed an extensive series of tour dates in 2013, with shows in February, March and April, and others in October, November and December.
