Feu! Chatterton: L'Oiseau

After being away from things for a few weeks, it's good to catch up with Feu! Chatterton, one of my favourite contemporary French acts.

The band recently released their second album, the follow up to Ici le jour (a tout enseveli)  -  a favourite of this blog - and marked the occasion with a new video for the track L'oiseau, featuring a 70s retro flavour that sees frontman Arthur plagued by a voodoo doll.

They've been playing live across France solidly over the past couple of months in support of the album, and were briefly back in the studio to work on more new material.

They've got a series of festival shows in France over the summer, including Solidays in Paris, Nuits de Fourviere in Lyon and Europavox in Clermont-Ferrand this month. A date in Montreal on June 13 is also in their diary.

But more significantly they're playing Le Zénith in Paris in January, along with gigs in Mets and Brussels. They've already played most of the venues in Paris, but Le Zénith is a big step up for them in terms of capacity.
