Indochine: Black City Parade
A very welcome return for French legends Indochine, whose new album Black City Parade has gone to the top of the French album charts after its release last week.
It's the first of 2013's much anticipated album releases, and follows their 2009 collection La République des Meteors,
While the band's history stretches back to the 1980s, the new collection - their 12th - shows that they deserve their continued success.
It's commercial success has been mirrored by a positive critical reaction to the collection in France.
The clip for the track Memoria emerged at the end of last year.
Indochine embark on the first leg of live dates supporting the album in Nancy tomorrow, with dates in the rest of February, March and April. A second leg of dates has been confirmed for the autumn that sees them playing larger arena sized venues around France.
No Paris date as yet, but as Indochine were the first band to play the Stade de France, on their last tour, some large-scale dates in the capital must certainly be on the cards.
